We have a favourite beach on the North Shore and saw Vanessa giving a lesson to a couple one afternoon. I caught Vanessa in the parking lot when she was packing up to get her info because just watching her teach is what inspired me to give surfing a real try! We booked a group lesson for four (my girlfriend... More

We called Vanessa after having a surf lesson with another company that wasn't great. Then we met Vanessa. She is encouraging, energetic, kind and helpful. We loved spending time with her and would highly recommend her as a great instructor!

Vanessa was awesome. We loved how lax it was and she got us both up on our very first wave. It was a little busy of a spot but the waves were perfect for learning. there's no other way to see North Shore except on a board looking back at the island. The turtles were even grabbing some lunch near... More

My husband and I took a lesson from Vanessa and it was so much fun. I thought surfing was easy until I talked to people after and realized it must have just been what an amazing teacher she was.

I had an awesome time taking surf lessons with Vanessa! She is a fantastic teacher and has an amazing positive energy that makes learning to surf a blast. We had many great conversations while waiting for a wave :) She did a lot of nice things for myself and the other students. A super cool person to be around!

As a female travelling alone I did some research and found this was the best choice for a north shore camp price-wise and found Jetty Betty. All the reviews were awesome so I decided to go for 2 straight weeks of the surf retreat. It turned out to be exactly what I was dreaming! Vanessa will really help you to... More

I was looking to escape the polar vortex of the Vancouver winter and found Jetty Betty surf camp online and booked it for the following week. I had absolutely no expectations but went in the hopes of spending a lot of time in the ocean and making the transition from bodyboarding to surfing. From the moment Vanessa picked me up... More

Me and my wife showed up never having surfed before, but Vanessa was great. She was very patient and worked with us on land and then in the water. She was basically treading water for an hour (!) as we went in a loop - paddling out to meet her in the surf, and then letting her guide us towards... More
