Peter Devries defends title at Rip Curl Pro Tofino 

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 4 June, 2014 - Canada’s best surfers competed for national titles and more than $25,000 in cash and prizes this past weekend in Tofino, B.C., filling 150 competitor spots. The competition was fierce with action-packed surf on 4-5 ft. waves below sunny skies with light winds. 

“From the first round, each heat was as challenging as a final,” said Dom Domic, President of the Canadian Surfing Association and Competition Director of the Rip Curl Pro Tofino. Domic continued, “There are no easy heats for professional surfing in Canada, and this year the competition has raised the bar.” 

Six time champion, Peter Devries came out of the competition with another victory. Devries surfed through four extremely competitive heats, narrowly edging out Sepp Bruhwiler for the second year in a row, to finish with the well-deserved win.
