Tofino, B.C., has been ranked the best surf town in North America by an influential U.S. magazine.

Outside magazine handed the Vancouver Island locale the top honour as part of its inaugural Editor's Choice Awards for 2010.

Peter Devries, Canada's number one surfer and winner of the 2009 O'Neill Cold Water Classic Canada, says Tofino is a great place to ride the waves.

He says the beautiful town's only drawback is its cold water.

Outside has previously named Tofino's Chesterman Beach, specifically the area around Frank Island, as one of the best on the continent for beginner surfers.

Tofino was chosen from among 20 beginner surf spots the magazine named across North America. (Westcoaster.ca)
