Peter Devries and Jeremy Koreski are Happy Recluses


Pete Devries and Jeremy Koreski could surf Vancouver Island with their eyes closed.

After almost ten years of exploring British Columbia in search of the best cold water waves on offer, the pair are the only guides you need through the region—even if it is just through the surface of your screen. In Arc’teryx’s first ever-surf film, Happy Recluse, Koreski trains his lens on Devries and his reflections on years of being a ‘happy recluse’ in the lonely, yet bountiful waters around Vancouver Island. Pieced together from a number of trips taken in 2020, Happy Recluse is an impressive nine-minute debut into the surf flick genre from Arc’teryx, and we highly recommend clicking that triangle above.
