Seduction by Pancake? Not Your Typical Surf Vacation

In an earlier post I wrote about our February run to Victoria BC where finding surf breaks did not turn out to be the focus…Here I wanted to write a couple notes regarding how a great host can impact your surf vacation rental experience…

We met our host, Meg, kind of unannounced the afternoon of the first day we arrived (Brian and a friend Stephanie)…I personally was a bit shot from the past weekend and travel, but Brian, Meg and Steph hit it off, while I hid…Generously offering to help us stock the place with booze, Meg and Brian took off for a bit of a local tour….Awesome we thought, but little did we know the treat we were in for..

Brian and Meg kept in contact and the last night she stopped by for a visit…Brian and I happened to be cooking up a small feast. So we drank some wine, listen to some Fat Freddy’s Drop and had to do something with the Aunt Jemima pancake mix we picked up the day before…

Meg assured us she was a professional and took the the lead on the pancakes….A little Aunt J mix coupled with some smashed banana and lots of butter to crisp up the exterior… Absolute man-killer and a perfect treat in a surf break rental….that is not the point…

The point is that local knowledge and awesome local hosts can help you create epic surf vacation memories…
