Raph Bruhwiler is Canada’s first professional surfer but has a Swiss passport, his father used to be a Swiss national boxing champ. It’s a solid surf clip that really gives you a feel of Canadian surfing.


This section tells the story of Raph Bruhwiler who if its hunting season can be found in the forest tracking black tail deer when the surf is not all time. We tried to make this clip as organic as possible not adding to much artificial flair. Raph has also been working with a local Vancouver Island wood surfboard builder Wefi Surfboards on making light weight high performance cedar surfboards, we wanted to highlight Raph’s wefi’s as much as possible in this clip also. Vancouver Island is a pretty amazing place.
