For years the Nuu-chah-nulth territories including Tla-o-qui-aht (What is sometimes referred to as Clayoquot Sound) has been on every paddlers must do list. The world of SUP is also just beginning to catch on to the limitless paddling potential this area of the coast presents. Surrounded by some of the last intact ancient forests on Vancouver Islands and long stretches of sand beaches, exposed coastline, surf, tidal currents and large clam inlets.
