Gabe grew up in Northern California, where he followed his parents‘ bliss of spending time in nature. After finishing his undergrad in Squamish, BC, Gabe took his background in sustainable building to the west coast of Vancouver Island. Since moving to Ucluelet two years ago, Gabe has taken full advantage of all of the recreational opportunities. From surfing, skiing, and skateboarding to delving into spear and line fishing. Though all of these pastimes involve different skill sets, one thing remains constant. Due to the West Coast’s remote, temperamental nature, time spent learning swell, weather conditions and what flora and fauna surround us really pays off. With this in mind, Gabe is interested in teaching himself and others more about this wonderful territory that we are lucky to recreate in and call home.
