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.

What an amazing experience learning to surf with a small group of woman. Great instruction and it was the first time I stood up on my board so many times. Thanks for an incredible experience.

My wife and I wanted to take a surf lesson while in Tofino, and the resort we were staying at had a package deal that included a lesson from Surf Sister. We were probably going to go with Surf Sister in any case, since they came highly recommended by others who have taken lessons with them. We lucked out on... More

I have been to surf sister many times when I first started surfing and when I go up there with friends who want to learn to surf. Tia is the best.

Can't say enough good things about Surf Sisters, from stopping in to inquire about a lesson, to hitting the surf with our awesome instructor Stef, it was the most awesome day on the water and so glad I did it. Safety was paramount, and fun just followed along. I am hooked!

It was time for our youngest to have a surf lesson. After spending time out on this coast every single year, with a group of families, our kids have grown up playing in the surf as an annual tradition. When they reach a certain age/ size/ physical maturity/ coordination, they are ready to move up to surf boards. A 3... More
