PM's Easter surf break

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was spotted surfing in Tofino over the Easter long weekend.

Lynn Meyers says she saw a security team headed to the beach and then noticed the prime minister in a wetsuit, along with surfboards, accompanied by his wife Sophie and their daughter Ella-Grace.

"People were very respectful," she told CTV News. "Everyone just left them alone, which was really cool."

Surfer Shayla Williams was in the water when she saw the PM catch a wave.

"I paddled over and got about 20 feet away, and I saw for sure it was him," she said. 

Trudeau got dumped, but his wife stayed up.

"That was kind of funny that I saw the prime minister wipe out on his surfboard, but you know what? He was out there, out past the break, surfing with everyone else, and I think that was pretty cool."
