    I am planning to organize a last minute trip to West cost between July 6th to 14th, looking for experience paddles capable of handling outer coast of Vancouver island.

    This area could have strong winds, swells and surf conditions where paddlers should be able to handle various dynamic conditions.

    Please refer to trip classification page for 3C requirement.
