Queen of the Peak in Tofino is happening this October. Any East Coast women going? Here's a note on what it's all about:
"The feeling around the weekend of the “QOP” is truly tough to put into words. Put 80 – 100 girls and women who are competing against one another, together in one room, and what do you get? Nothing but smiles, camaraderie, stoke, mentorship and good- times. Although they all want to win, these women are all inspired and motivated by one another. At the end of the weekend one Queen of the Peak and Princess of the Peak will be crowned!
All proceeds from the event are donated to Keep A Breast Canada, whose mission is to help eradicate breast cancer by exposing young people to methods of prevention, early detection and support.
If you're looking to do something this Saturday, and you're not helping out with Life Rolls On, here's a great beach clean-up. Below is a note from the organizer to SANS members. It's a great chance to take the kids out and educate them on our environment.
"I would like to formally invite you attend this year's Great Canadian Shoreline Clean-up Celebration event. This annual event is hosted by the not-for-profit WWF-Canada and Vancouver Aquarium, and is held across the country to mark the activism of Canadians and our stewardship to keep our coastlines and beaches clean. The local Halifax event is being hosted at Point Pleasant Park, with an itinerary fit for the whole family. The cleanup will be held from 10:00AM to 1:00PM on Saturday, September 20th, and we invite you attend and make this year's clean-up the biggest yet! Last year we had an astonishing 120 volunteers who picked up hundreds of pieces of garbage. Let's make 2014 the cleanest year that Point Pleasant Park has ever seen!" ... See MoreSee Less

Not just for ninjas: You'll get 75 minutes of solid twists, core and back strengthening, shoulder opening, breathing techniques, and playful challenges. This is seriously smart stuff for surfers who want to ensure their bodies can rip/charge/dance on waves for a lifetime. It will also help you develop a killa pop-up, tighten your turns and generally make you surf like a ninja.
Every Friday from 530-645pm at 6218 Quinpool Road (across from Canadian Tire and next to Cafe Ireland 32). 7 class pass for $75, 10 for $100 or $13 drop in. To pre-reserve a spot email firstname.lastname@example.org or send a fb msg to ninja yoga.
Take a few minutes to check out this video. It makes me feel very fortunate to spend time in the ocean and be able to do what we all love so much. We will be hosting the first "Life Rolls On" in Canada on Sept 20th at Martinique Beach. Going to be an awesome experience for all...
Vans recently announced, via their website, that their Duct Tape Surf Contest Series would be coming to Nova Scotia in 2015. Until this was posted, SANS was unaware of any plan to bring this contest to Nova Scotia.
Since its inception in 1987, SANS has served as a conduit for discussions between the local surfing community and people and businesses looking to bring in new surf contests and events, with the aim to minimize impacts and maximize benefits to the local surfing community.
To be clear, SANS doesn't have the authority to forbid anyone from holding a surf contest or event in Nova Scotia. And in any case, that’s not what we’re about. SANS is about building an inclusive, fun and respectful surf community; supporting recreational and amateur surfing; and fostering coastal stewardship.
If Vans wants to reach out to SANS and share their ideas about bringing their Duct Tape contest to Nova Scotia, we're open to working with them to help them engage with the local surfing community to discuss about the possibility of this event coming to Nova Scotia.
We'll update our website and facebook page as we learn more. Please keep any comments below constructive. We do want to know what you think!
