Most of the staff was very friendly, knowledable, and helpful. We booked the boards without a lesson and they still let us go in the van to the beach without extra charge since we had no transportation. I was upset that with a 3hour lesson, we only had about 1.5hrs of actual surf time and the van stopping to get... More

An excellent surf shop for sure! Rented a board there and guys were great! Picked up a couple a hats and a t-shirt after my surf. Good selection of boards and they have lessons there too. Stop bye and say hi to the guys. I would defiantly rent boards there again.

We didn't have to book or anything, just a bunch of first timers who wondered off the camp ground looking to have an awesome time. We were attended to by awesome people and got some expert recommendation on which beach to go to and what to do. would def come back here when in Ukii.. Thanks Relic.

What a great establishment. I sent a few e-mails to Relic Surf Shop prior to travelling to Vancouver Island from Ontario. They were very helpful and answered my questions right away. The shop was easy to find once we were there, and the staff are very helpful. We loved surfing at Long Beach (a must on everyone's bucket list). You... More

This was a highlight of our 2 week trip. We booked a 3 hour surf lesson with Relic Surf Shop for the afternoon. Phillip and Seamus were awesome instructors. They were very thorough in their shore instructions, gave equal time to everyone in the group and kept an eye on everyone in case they strayed too far. included in the... More

The group rate was $79 for a 3-hour lesson, and you get to use the gear for the rest of the day!!! I didn;t, because I was so wiped out. hehehe. The basics were great, then we went out to... More
