Born and raised in Tofino, British Columbia, Pete started surfing at the age of seven when his dad first pushed him into a wave in front of their home. He recently won the Coldwater Classic in his hometown, and officially showed the world what he is capable of. Pete has appeared on the cover of Surfer Magazine and has been featured in Innersection films by Taylor Steele for the past two years. When not in the swell, Pete enjoys tennis, basketball and backpacking with his friends and family. He is currently working on building a house right across from one of his favorite beach spots so he can walk over and hit the surf whenever he wants.
