After doing quite a few research, we decided to go with Tofino Surf School. TSS provides lessons with suitable length of time and reasonable rental rates. We went on November 24 but it wasn't cold at all. They also provide fairly new and really comfortable wet suits and booties which kept us warm the entire time! Jeff was very friendly, patient, and thoughtful. Highly recommend Tofino Surf School! We will go back to them again for sure.

Really fun and great teaching! Jeffro and Maya have a great little business and do a wonderful job teaching people how to surf. I've surfed in Hawaii but Tofino, I think, is much easier to learn the sport in.

We had a small group, only 4 of us, and Jeffro gave everyone enough time in order to make sure we were all successful. This was my wife's first time on a surf board and with Jeffro's help, she was able to have an absolute blast and even stood up on the board for most of the time.

We went in July and the water was freezing cold but Jeffro provides wet suits. Be prepared for the cold water shock.

Highly recommended!

We had a great time surfing with Jeff in mid-November. Everyone at the school was very accommodating to our group of 6 people and everyone had a great time and managed to catch some waves. We all really liked Jeff's mixture of instruction and letting us "test the waters" for ourselves. Definitely recommend them and hope to go back for another lesson.
Thanks!

My friends and I had the opportunity to take a surf lesson with the Tofino Surf School. The owner, Jeffro, was an amazing teacher who truly made our surfing experience personalized, fun, and safe! The Tofino Surf School really does maximize your time on the water, and enables you to catch as many waves as possible! We had a great time with the Tofino Surf School and know that we will 100% book with them again! It was the best surfing experience I have ever had in Tofino.
