The warm breeze returns to our Cascadian paradise. Ahhh….

Time for all the beach arts. We’ve got new crab traps to drop off our SUPs. Of course, our Corvus shades drop in the water every now and then so we’re always thankful for the buoyancy.

So light they float, but so light we wear them all day too.

Coming out from Hibernation

And we’re back! Summer is the ‘royal we’ I’m referring to. Damn that feels good. Corvus has been hibernating. Well, if you can spending as much time splitboarding in the backcountry with www.wreckboards.com and @splitsville , as well as having a side consulting project doing a massive rebrand of a beer company, hibernation, more like off season!

We’re free now! Free for summer. Free for the last of the spring slush. Free for the first of the summer waves!. Bring it all on!

PEAK SUMMER

The perfect beach assault vehicle‘Tis the season…. For the beach. Tropical Vancouver is in full effect. What beach shall we hit?

Normally we’d be happy with rain about now…

Precipitation means snow on the mountains so that is what helps us get through the grey winters here in Vancouver. There’s been a drought of snow this season but it’s hard to complain when it’s warm and sunny. Tennis season started early!

Ten years ago Mt Pleasant had fewer restos, pubs and hot spots but was always a spectacular night out. We would invite all our circle of friends out for a night visiting all our favorite haunts: The Reef, Locus, Purple Crab (RIP), Army Navy (aka Legion), Public (RIP), Zigz (RIP, now Hyde), The Whip and sometimes the ANZA (technically off Main but legendary Mt Pleasant).

With Rememberance Day Nov 11th the last stop is always the Cenotaph for Memorial Services and the rest of the day to recover from the envitable hangover.

Join us EVERY NOVEMBER 10th as we’ll be on Main Street visiting all our favorite haunts!

Here’s a itinerary we found from 2005’s Fall Crawl!!!

Ran into our Namesake and Cypress Denizen Raven (genius Corvus)

Soon we’ll be snow sliding but in anticipation we did a hike to the top of Mt.Strachan (the mountain top of Sky Chair). This big old bird came to and gave us the once over. We got to practice our Raven calls and this guy would call back (well sometimes).

Big Old Raven came to check us out at the Top of Mt. Strachan

Whoa, a record string of weather has kept Corvus busy all season. Despite a short sideline due to ACL reconstruction we’ve been signing up new retailers ( Moule, Grassroots and Much and Little for instance) and doing pop-up shops (next one is August 24th Viva. Vancouver smack in the middle of downtown Robson and Granville!). Thanks to physio that includes cycling to the beach for water walking, the new knee is almost back kicking it.  Just in time our favorite time of the season, late summer!

Whoa, were did the winter go? I love that season because we get outside doing things like this…

Some late season turns in our backyard Coast Mountains with my best buddy Pete.

We’ve had a good run of those so now it is time to fire up the sun and get you all some shades. I hope you all had an epic snow season. Let’s reminisce with some beverages at the beach.
