Learning to surf was on my bucket list and Surf Sister did not disappoint. We took our family (10 yrs and 7 yrs) and we all had a great time. Our teacher was Chantal and she was kind, positive and patient. She was lovely with both of our boys. Both our kids got up and my husband and I had... More

The instructors are superb, thorough and fun. This was our first surfing experience and definitely not our last! Location varies daily - they take you where the waves are. Sun, cloud or mist, there's not much that can beat surfing in Tofino. We can't wait to do a few more lessons this August!

I participated in Surf Sister's 5 day progressive surf camp and had an absolute blast! There was a lot of individual attention and our instructor, Kate, was the best! We learned a lot of the 'ins and outs' of surfing with very informative sessions. Then.. taking it to the water, you could actually see how you progressed each day. All... More

I've taken two lessons with Surf Sisters, both have been outstanding. I recently had a Day Two lesson with Kate, who is an absolutely stunning instructor. The lesson began with a lot of theory, and there were so many 'aha' moments and 'oh yes, now I realize what I've been doing wrong'. Every word she spoke, my friend Kate and... More

I'm a 61 year old woman who has lately developed the philosophy toward life of "What Am I Waiting For?" So in this spirit, having never surfed before, I booked a 5-day progressive surfing lesson with Surf Sister in Tofino. I knew that I would hang back and never get to the point of standing up unless I took the... More

Wonderful experience, and we're hitting 60 years of age!! This was the highlight of our honeymoon :-) Our teacher, Chantal, was excellent and very pleasant. Highly recommended to anyone of all ages. Nous aimerions définitivement y retourner un jour pour revivre cette expérience formidable. Difficile mais ça en vaut vraiment la peine.

My wife and I booked a lesson with Nicole Lohse from Surf Sisters. What a wonderful personality! Our lesson was perfectly tailored to our abilities and Nicole was really great at breaking down all the techniques and skills into manageable bites. Surfing can be pretty intimidating but Nicole made it fun and accessible. Had a great time and will be... More

Nicole Lohse from Surf Sisters was phenomenal. We had a few lessons for her and felt like we improved every day. And above all, have a new love for surfing. Thanks Nicole!

I booked two private lessons with surf sister for my 8 year old son. Good friends had recommended them as the most friendly and fun. Well, they were absolutely right! We had Nicole and she was awesome! I have been injured so I was unable to join in the water so I was a little nervous, but my confidence in... More
