Fantastic time! We had Emily and Katherine as our instructors this morning and had a blast. Would highly recommend this to anyone. We did the day one class with a group of ten. The instructors were able to get to everyone for personal instruction and tips, regardless of skill level. THANK-YOU!

The Surf Sister Surf School was actually located right on our hotel (Pacific Sands Resort) which was so convenient! The staff was very helpful in getting us fitted in wetsuits and showing us some tips on the board as practically first timers! Very friendly, great experience :)

A special needs friend of mine tried surfing for the first time and the private instructor she had from surf sisters was absolutely great! Fun, encouraging, patient, flexible in how she taught, tailored the experience to the needs of my friend and helped her build confidence and stay safe. Surf Sister is the way to go!

Had a great afternoon with Sherri learning to surf on Cox Bay. She was knowledgeable, attentive and fun. I would definitely go out again with Surf Sister, Tofino

my wife and daughters 12 and 10, has a private lesson having never surfed before. They end up absolutely loving it and wanting to go back the next day even though they surfed in driving rain! The staff were friendly and the instructor Kate was amazing. Our 10 year old was standing up within minutes!

Incredible group of teachers very in tune to our gang of 10 with differing levels of ability. Well organized to get us out on the waves as soon as possible.
