The Hurricane Riders: October Sessions

Rowan Gloag and the Vancouver-based Hurriance Riders crew just dropped another video—The Hurricane Riders: October Sessions. Here’s the skinny: “This is a chill movie of us surfing sea kayaks near Tofino [British Columbia]. The waves were a little small on this trip so we played around with back surfing, bow stalls, front loops, surfing down the line and cork screw flips over the crest—most of which ended with a roll. Enjoy.”

When the last THR video rolled out (find additional THR here), we asked Gloag a few questions, but his answers never made their way into the piece. Dig now, then, some further THR backstory:

Rowan Gloag: “Why do we continue to paddle in the winter? I guess it comes down to two things: 1. We have the right gear. 2. The paddling work season is finally slowing down so we now have time to play.”

“We did take [whitewater] and surf boats for years. But we’ve all migrated into long boats now. The rides are unreal.”
