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

Our 9 year old grandson got up on the board right away, as did our 32 year old son and 60 year old grandpa. Vanessa was patient and very... More

My first surfing lesson ever -- chosen by the attractiveness and positive attitude of her website, admittedly. Vanessa gave simple instructions, just enough to manage without overly worrying about too many details; she was a beauty and professional to boot, personable and a great encouraging coach, since I'd not surfed any of my 67 years ... glad I finally decided...

We decided to take some surf lessons with Vanessa as we never surfed a reef break before. It was absolutely worth it and we really enjoyed so much! Vanessa is amazing and this job is definitely her passion. Surfing the North Shore (with Jetty Betty) was awesome!!!

I did the surf retreat last week and it was just what I needed! I went surfing everyday, plus heaps of other activities including- SUP, hiking, yoga, sailing, anything an outdoor enthusiast would love! Vanessa was awesome, great surf instructor and good healthy yummy meals everyday. If you are into the outdoors and surfing this is the perfect experience.
