An ice axe is important for making the steps to climb up. Some good
destinations are found in Canada in Ontario and Quebec. In Banff National

equipment can be hired.

for cash a lot of people play for pleasure. Surfing was a traditional
sport in Hawaii even before it got modernised. Almost all coastal areas
of the world engage in surfing. It is a big sport in California where
temperatures are usually milder.
