Pete Devries and Jeremy Koreski, two long-time partners in the mission to surf and photograph the best waves Vancouver Island have to offer, take the extra step into their deep backyard returning to a wave that had shown past potential for a legendary session. Full quiver breakdown, below:
After a long stint at home, most of the Traktor Team are heading to Hawaii with everything from fishes and shortboards to step ups and guns along for the ride. JS finished off batches of FMNII round pins for everyone just in time - the most ridden model each and every Hawaiian season. Pictured - JW's Pipe quiver.

JS Industries is proud to welcome Conner Coffin to the Traktor Team.
The WSL standout, and current world number 20, has signed on exclusively with JS surfboards.
