Spent the second week of August learning how to surf with Sherri and Remi. They were both great instructors - informative, friendly, and passionate. Basics were covered on the beach, and we hit the water day one - the rest of the week started with a short discussion on surfing conditions and a short q&a for anything that had come... More

On the first day of afternoon group lessons, I learned a lot shortly after the meet up. Before heading into the water, Jocelyn and Danni gave everyone in the group pointers on what to do and what to avoid while on the board. When I had my second day of lessons with Isabelle, I managed to make progress with standing... More

Among the surf schools in Tofino, Surf Sister has the best rating based on tripadvisor. Hence, why I chose to do my lessons with them. And I am glad that I did! My instructors, Mouse & Romy, are very knowledgeable and friendly. I originally wanted to sign up for the private one on one session but of course it costs... More

Our 2 teen children spent the afternoon in private lessons with Surf Sister - it was definitely the highlight of their vacation! Water temperature was not a factor as they provided appropriate gear. The instructor was patient and very encouraging - would highly recommend it!

We had a semi-private lesson for my daughter 9 (age 9) and myself (age 45). I am definitely not the most fit person but I had a great time. I have been surfing in Hawaii before, so I was concerned about being cold but Surf Sisters found a long wetsuit which fit me and kept me just as warm as... More

Great place! Lots of fun. I thought I would be cold but the wet suits provided kept us very warm. It was worth it to take the lesson . They offer beginner lessons 1 and 2. The instructors had lots of prior surf experience around the globe.

I had a great morning taking the day one group lesson. There were 7 people in the class with two instructors, Chelsea and Eliza. We met in the parking lot at Cox Bay Beach. The instructors bring all of your gear to the lot. The size of suit issued is based on your weight and height. Mine fit perfectly. My... More

When our concierge at the Wick recommended we do a family surf lesson, we were a little worried. None of us had ever surfed and all four of us were worried about trying it in rough waters. But we didn't have to worry at all. Emma, our instructor was very patient and helpful. The kids managed to stand up and... More

My two young daughters, 7 (almost 8) and 9 years old wanted to learn to surf, and I was a bit worried about them in the cold waters and surf as they are not strong swimmers. We booked a semi-private lesson with Eliza - Surf Sister provided everything they needed, including wet suits, and Eliza was very patient and gave... More
