They were not all athletic types. They had a blast. Lessons were given at Cox Bay. The instructors were really good - so good... More

My husband and daughter took lessons from Lindsay. She was awesome, patient and helpful. Foggy day, but they had a blast. We met out at Cox Bay for their lesson. It's harder than it looks.

Surf Sister is a fun, energetic and knowledgable surf school in Tofino. My husband and I had never surfed before and thoroughly enjoyed learning and getting into the ocean! Our instructor was fantastic and really worked with the group. It was a very small class so it made it fun and personal. Will try surfing again and very glad my... More

Spent the morning with these ladies at a beginner's class. They were really well organized. The curriculum flowed really well, spending the right amount of time focusing on technique and practice on the beach before heading into the water. The learning was broken into fundamental sections that made the progression amazing once we got on the water. Thoroughly enjoyed it.... More

We joined a beginners class and had a wonderful time! Having never surfed before, we learnt the basics and safety rules on the beach before going into the water - and had fun while doing it. Our two instructors were knowledgable, professional and inspired confidence. Our 3 hour lesson flew by. We would go back for seconds but couldn't due... More

As a family of 4 we did the day 1 surf lesson, which was great fun. Safety and technique was explained on the beach beforehand, and then we had a good period of time in the water. The day 2 session was fantastic as we got practically 1 on 1 coaching and felt we really improved. Can't wait to go... More

Family had two lessons on consecutive days and we all agreed that we learned more here than from any other place. Instructors were good fun and professional and able to cater to the differing standards in the group. We had all surfed before but were essentially beginners and were all standing up on waves after the first hour of the... More

My husband had a beginners surf lesson and he said it was fantastic. Much better than other lessons he had had elsewhere as you get a lot more 1:1 tuition from the instructor.
