reason for the new group
I've talked or exchanged emails with a few surfers who mentioned that those of us outside Vancouver proper don't come up in a search for "Vancouver" which is what most travelers would of course be searching for. I know that when I am in Europe I don't say I live in Coquitlam... I say Vancouver... it's a natural. I figured that by naming a group a name that includes our City names as well as Vancouver it will come up in more searches making more people aware of the "Greater" (geographic reference, not a value statement) part of Greater Vancouver.
This will also potentially allow a forum for local surfers and hosts to plan on meeting or helping each other and exchanging ideas, information and contacts.
