Being in our fifties, my husband and I had low expectations for learning to surf, but our instructor, Mouse, was such a great teacher that she had us both standing on the board by the end of the lesson. We had so much fun, already planning a visit for next year! Next time we'll do more than one lesson.

The staff were friendly I had a fantastic time during the surf lesson with my daughter and the instructor was awesome and friendly. I have nothing bad to say about the lesson. But they suggested going to Long Beach surf shop to rent my equipment. Where I had a horrible experience. Girls I suggest not recommending that place again to... More

What a wonderful experience! Everything was taken care of ; from transportation to hotels and tours. The surf was great for learning and our instructors Kate and Nicole were amazing! I loved the "classroom" lessons prior to each trip out into the waves. It gave me a better understanding of what I was to be doing and how to be... More

Best week of my life. A high-bank ocean front room I could NEVER afford in Tofino; miles of sandy beach break entirely to ourselves; non-stop sun; no wetsuit; kind, attentive, and very competent instructors; a baby hawksbill turtle release; massages from an ex guerrilla commander; tropical wildlife e.g. geckos and green parrots; a small earthquake; smoking volcanoes; fresh squeezed orange...

Went for 7 days to El Salvador with a group of friends through surf sister. Amazing! Kate and Nicole were fantastic instructors and hosts, well thought out itinerary and good surfing/other activities balance. I didn't want to leave and appreciated how thoughtful Kate and Nicole were about every detail to make sure the group was enjoying themselves. Highly recommend!

I have now had two lessons with Surf Sisters and both have been fantastic. After meeting at the shop, we made our way to the beach and suited up. After a short time of teaching on the beach- during which we were given really useful tips on how to surf- we got into the water, where we spent most of... More

A great place to learn to surf or refresh your minimal skills before tackling Cox Bay! Staff are friendly, attentive, skilled and offer lots of support in the water. The only recommendation I would have is to offer hoods in the off season rather than make the assumption that 'it isn't needed' because it's warm enough (which may be true... More

We stayed at the Pacific Sands and Surf Sisters is conveniently located on the resort property in Cox Bay. Such a great experience! The staff are exceptionally friendly and welcoming - especially Kate:) In additon to setting us up with a terrific instructor, she gave us so many honest and much appreciated tips for things to experience while in Tofino....
