Our Story

What began as two young surfers trying to keep up with the growing demand for surf lessons in Tofino back in 1998 has since grown into one of the most passionate, dedicated and qualified team of surf instructors you'll find along Canada's Pacific Coast. 

Today, we offer year-round services for anyone who wants to learn how to surf or paddle board safely, maximize fun during their surfing time, or just grab the gear they need to get out there and enjoy the ocean. 

Our surf and paddle board lessons are hands-down the most thorough you will find in Tofino, led by certified, safety-conscious instructors with a serious love for surfing. We also offer surf camps, rentals, clothing, and used gear for sale - pretty much anything novice or experienced surfers of all ages need to take full advantage of Tofino's awesome waves. 

Do you remember that feeling you had the first time you rode a bike or connected your first turn on your skis? Every time we watch someone catch their first wave, we get to relive that amazing feeling. Without a doubt there's nothing else we'd rather do for a living. This isn't just a summer job to us, it's our lifelong passion. 

We can't wait to share with you everything you need to know to get the most out of your time in the water while you're here in Tofino.
