My first surfing experience was awesome, loads of fun and great support from Jeff getting me and my wife out there riding our first waves. I highly recommend live to surf and Jeff to get you going.

“Best surf trip ever!!!”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

I go surfing every may long weekend with my dad an a friend. We usually get a lesson for a day from live to surf and they are all really good, but this year was amazing!!! Eric is such a good instructor! He taught us so much in the 2.5 hours that we had with him. I hope that next year when we come back he can be our surf guide!! Thanks Live to Surf for an amazing time can't wait to see you soon. :)

“Shandy is Awesome!!”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

Great Company, great store, great service. Jemma was a Gem. She booked us in and got us fitted in our wet suits. She also had our awesome FREE photos uploaded on the easy to use web page.
The best part of our experience with Live To Surf was our instructor SHANDY, she was full of local knowledge and was a really great surf instructor. Calm, patient, funny, sweet, took great care of us.
Tofino is one of the most magical places on earth. Surfing there is a once and a life time experience.
We stayed at Pacific Sands.
