Peter Devries is by far the best surfer ever from Canada. If he lived in California’s Newport Beach or San Clemente, you’d probably see him grinding out heat wins on the ASP World Qualifying Series or doing photo/video trips to Mexico and Central America. Instead, Devries lives on Vancouver Island full-time and surfs his lineups with orcas, seals, and bald eagles. Most of the videos he’s put out online have shown him getting tubed at the area’s meaty slabs or carving the region’s perfect pointbreaks. His new “One and Only” edit for Hurley, though, is more of a rip clip that shows off his air and above-the-lip game, which is refreshing. It’s not often you see a guy doing tail-high reverses with snow-capped mountains in the background.
