NORTH VANCOUVER, British Columbia, February 18, 2021 – Arc’teryx Equipment, the global design company specializing in technical high-performance apparel and equipment, is proud to present the film Happy Recluse. 

Featuring Arc’teryx Ambassador, Pete Devries, and Jeremy Koreski, the two long-time partners set out on a mission to surf and photograph the best waves Vancouver Island has to offer, taking the extra step into their deep backyard and returning to a wave that had shown past potential for a legendary session. In the process, Pete tells of his life as a ”happy recluse," at home in cold water. “The cold isn’t for everyone," says Devries. "It’s raw, it’s stormy, the conditions rarely align. No one’s going to tell you where the good waves are, it’s hard-earned lessons that get you there. The cold isn’t for everyone — but it’s for me.”
