The whole experience from the moment we met Jeffro was really awesome! The lesson was great and we spent the majority of our time in the water which was pretty sweet. The vibe was definitely personable and chill, felt like we were being taught by a friend rather than by just being in a generic group lesson kinda setting. I... More

Jeff was so great explaining and demonstrating the skills required to survive a morning playing in west coast waves,with the north west winds, and my teenagers had the best day ever. He didn't waste time; the lessons were clear; the kids were carefully watched. He taught them safety yet stressed a good time. His casual easy manner made the kids... More

Jeff was super kind to book us a last minute morning session the night before. Was very helpful and knowledgeable in all aspects of surfing... including putting that god damn wet suit on. ;) He showed us the basics on the beach and we got out on the water almost immediately. Jeff is the perfect guy if you want to... More

Jeff took my teen kids out. They both got up on the boards with consistancy and Jeff worked the whole class well. Both kids want to come back in the summer again so they must have had fun. All gear - boards, suits, etc were supplied and in great shape to keep everyone warm. Jeff is an avid surfer (he... More

Lucky enough to get a one on one with Jeff back on 27th September this year. Within five minutes of being on the water I was standing, which I'd never managed before. I LOVED the whole experience and can recommend it to you all. Stayed out on the water till I barely had the energy to paddle. Great experience and... More

After doing quite a few research, we decided to go with Tofino Surf School. TSS provides lessons with suitable length of time and reasonable rental rates. We went on November 24 but it wasn't cold at all. They also provide fairly new and really comfortable wet suits and booties which kept us warm the entire time! Jeff was very friendly,... More

Really fun and great teaching! Jeffro and Maya have a great little business and do a wonderful job teaching people how to surf. I've surfed in Hawaii but Tofino, I think, is much easier to learn the sport in. We had a small group, only 4 of us, and Jeffro gave everyone enough time in order to make sure we... More

We had a great time surfing with Jeff in mid-November. Everyone at the school was very accommodating to our group of 6 people and everyone had a great time and managed to catch some waves. We all really liked Jeff's mixture of instruction and letting us "test the waters" for ourselves. Definitely recommend them and hope to go back for... More
