They had a blast

While visiting Tofino, my friends kids took an afternoon lesson and had a blast. Couldn't say more about a great group of folks.

We loved our lesson with Surf Sisters and can't wait to return to take more lessons. Every staff member with whom we interacted was professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable. Our instructors were excellent; safety conscious, fun, motivating, and encouraging. We had an incredible three hours of learning to enjoy the surf! Well done Surf Sisters...looking foreword to seeing you in... More

This is the third time that I've booked lessons through Surf Sister, and worth all the pennies. I'm a landlocked longtime beginner surfer, and I wanted to start to level up. I did. Every morning was a dose of theory, understanding why waves do what they do, safety, technique, and how to read surf reports (super handy!). Then after going... More

I took my first surf lesson at Surf Sisters. While I found surfing itself a bit challenging (I only started getting up toward the end of the lesson), Surf Sisters provided an excellent experience for my first time surfing. They provide you with everything you need and our instructor did a fantastic job teaching us throughout the whole lesson. Surfing... More

Leading up the lesson I began dreading the thought of getting into that cold ocean water but I was happy to learn that with a wet suit it really isn't that bad at all. Having an private lesson with Emily was worth every penny. She was patient, encouraging, knowledgeable and just fun to hang out with. This was one of... More

We have always wanted to try surfing, but since we are from the prairies it's a bit tough to just try it anywhere! We booked a private family lesson and could not have had a better day! Emma was our sweet instructor, and she was kind, informative and patient with us prairie girls! Our ages ranged from mid-50s to late... More

This was our 2nd year using this Surf School for our 9 year old daughter. The shop atmosphere is very chill and it was all around a 5 plus experience the first year, from time of booking to interaction with the instructor out in the water. This year (2015) at the time of booking, one of the managers/owners seemed a... More

We had a wonderful experience with Surf Sister over Labour Day long weekend with Shari leading our private lesson. My girlfriend and I are at different levels of ability, but between the nice theory intro and the subsequent fun in the water, Shari navigated both of our abilities flawlessly with good feedback on what we could do to better catch...

My wife and I and our 3 children did I first ever attempt at surfing with Surf Sisters and could not have been more satisfied. Our instructor, Emily, was absolutely fantastic. She gave a very clear and concise explanation of safety and what we should "try" and do when we got out there and it was perfect. Not too much... More

My husband and I, along with our 3 kids had a private family lesson. The cost included all equipment as well as instruction on the proper use of the equipment, ocean safety, surf etiquette and proper technique. Our instructor Bry was friendly, fun, patient, and provided a lot of words of encouragement throughout the lesson. The time flew by and... More
