I was wondering if it'd be better to learn to surf in July or August?

Doesn't matter - Tofino waters will be the same either way - still quite cold! August might be a little better, but weather there can change so easily.

The previous poster is right. The summer water is cold, but it is all lousy beach break on longboards. Not really my idea of surfing. Maybe look to the winter to learn to surf, as the waves are higher and it is probably less crowed. There are however female only surf camps, which you can take a weekend intro into surfing.
