I'm going to visit a friend there for a few days in 2 weeks, is it worth it to bring all my gears?
I'll be in campbell river. Any spots around there?
I'm thinking about bringing the snowboarding gears too, just in case. :mrgreen:

If you're talking about the Campbell River on Vancouver Island, Tofino (on the West Coast) has excellent surf and could be unbelievable if there were wind. Here's a tidbit from: http://www.destinationkiteboarding.com/tofino-kitesurfing.html

Also, NitNat lake is up there:
