There’s an allure to the coast – something about the unwavering flux of the ocean crashing against the unrelenting land. An underlying sense of discovery from days past, when the mere sight of land was enough to set an explorer’s soul on fire.

Or maybe we’re overthinking it, and it’s as simple as the smell of salt in the air and the sound of waves lapping at the sand. Whatever the reason, there’s no denying there’s something special about the coast.  Kit and Ace is a Vancouver company and we wear our west coast inspirations with pride. From our love of fresh air to healthy eating to our backyard-cum-personal-gym, the relaxed vibe and pleasure found in living well are ingrained in our personality. But you can’t talk about the west coast without turning your gaze east, where the get-shit-done attitude and entrepreneurial spirit are as predictable as the hellacious winter. We’re two sides of the same coin, as different as we are connected.

In this issue of the Brief, we examine the relationship between east and west, and celebrate all of the things that make living on the coast so exceptional. Let the breezy, seaside aura carry you away. Now, pause and take a deep, salty breath – the Coast issue is here.
