“It was so fun to explore the east and west of Canada with the boys”, says Pete Devries. “The contrast of waves and temperatures made for two very different experiences. The east was full of long rippable waves, subzero temperatures and falling snow. The west was all about pouring rain, quick mixed up beach break and green rain forests.  I’m happy to call the west coast home but I am definitely a little jealous of some of their setups.”

“Common Ground” features different walks of life, coming together on their journey of Just Passing Through. From Eastern Canada, Nova Scotia to Tofino, British Colombia, Pete, Michael, Logan and Shannon embark on the search of waves in some of the most remote places in Canada.
