“Amazing experience and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

We walked in and immediately had a great experience. The staff were incredibly helpful and explained what was going to happen and just treated so well.

The lessons with Peter were awesome. He spent time with each of us and really helped us get going. Top notch instructor.

He even spent some time with my eight year old daughter and had her on a board standing. She peppered him with questions and he was so good with her.

Do recommend to anyone thinking of lessons or rentals.

“New Years Eve Surf Lesson”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

My wife and I signed up for a surf lesson here on new years eve. We were a bit tentative about the size of the surf, the water temperature, etc. Lesson started with a quick gear up and drive to the beach. After this we spent maybe 10 minutes on the beach before hitting the water. I was unsure that this would be enough but our instructor, heath, made us feel very comfortable. The style of teaching was great and we were all able to get a good ride in right away. Our instructor catered to the different needs of the group with some of us learning how to pick and paddle into a wave while another was working on balance and standing up on the board. Really personalized and we all felt safe, warm, and happy throughout. I'd definitely recommend this spot!

“Surfing off Vancouver island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

The water can be a bit cold but as the quality of wetsuits, booties & hood are great you won't notice it! Some mega surf on wide, long beach.. Unspoilt & relaxed. Brilliant place to chill out!
