We were lucky enough to have an instructor for each of us today. Alan and Francois were awesome and did a great job at making us feel comfortable and safe. The waves were pretty intimidating for a couple of first time surfers like us. We had so much fun and cant wait to do it again!

We enrolled my son in Surf lessons for his birthday . The service and instruction was top notch . after signing him up and fitting him for gear we met them the next day at one of the local surf spots . The Instructors were great and handled the small group with ease and lots of one on one teaching .They had the entire group up and riding waves by the end of the lesson and it looked like everyone was having a great time right from the suit up in the changing areas .

From the moment we walked in the front door we were treated like friends. I didn't get to surf because of my darn shoulder having a pinched nerve but watched and took photos and video. My hubby and 15yr old son and 19 yr old daughter went out. Exhausting but exhilarating was their main expression. Troy and Liam were fabulous and patient and the small teacher/student ratio made it easy for them to help everyone. We loved it so much we went back later and bought shirts. I will definitely come surf next yr with this company! Margot

It was an phantastic experience. The teacher (Alistair) was an very competent instructor, always very kind and helpful. I felt very good prepared when I started the phantastic surf session on the chesterman beach.

My gf and I had a 3 hour lesson with Hannah at Pacific Surf School and we are now both hooked.

Hannah was a great instructor - very personable, knowledgeable and a lot of fun.

The instruction was also well thought out with 20-30 minutes on shore going over the basics - with very clear explanations - and then the rest of the time in the water.

In no time, we were able to get up and had a lot of fun (clumsily) getting the feel for surfing.

It was also really nice having the gear delivered to the beach for us.

We are now looking for our next opportunity to surf and next time we're in Tofino, we'll head out with PSS.
