When Peter is not helping his clients, you'll find him basking in his other passion in life, surfing. He spends most of his free time on the west coast of Vancouver Island in Ucluelet (Ukee), surfing all the local beaches and enjoying the serenity of the coast. He also has loves touring around the city on his motorbike, it's almost as cool as Molly's. You'll also see him out on the water on his sailboat when there is a nice wind blowing. It's the awesome looking yellow and red called The Bankshot.
As the year draws to a close and the chilly fall rains begin, Peter often heads south to Costa Rica for an extended period to refuel and revitalize.
Along with surfing, he also enjoys heading up to Whistler and getting into knee deep power on his snowboard, something he's been enjoying for over 25 years now. In order to maintain his active lifestyle, Peter regularly practices power vinyasa style yoga. This has enabled him to keep loose and injury free, as well as keeping his mind clear and focused.
