We had a surf lesson with Josh as part of a family (kids aged 8 and 9) trip to BC. This is the second time we have done this on trips 2 years apart. We had a fantastic experience both times. This time Josh was brilliant with the kids. He gave us adults good advice whilst all the time getting the kids up on the board. Pacific Surf is very professional in all aspects. Organised, friendly and top notch. The photos that their photographer took are also incredible. We wouldn’t look anywhere else when surfing in Tofino. ~
Our instructor Adam, is very experienced and brings a lot of passion and patience to his instruction. He focused on the fundamentals, providing a great overview of the basics and emphasizing safety while in the water. Overall, it was an amazing few hours in the Chesterman surf. We will definitely be back for another lesson, and will recommend the Pacific Surf Company to others. ~
My wife and son and I joined the group lesson (10 students in the group). The lesson was at Cox beach, nice and big beach with tons of space and extremely good waves for beginners. Our instructors were very funny but also very good at teaching how to surf. It's really worth it! The gear was quite new, and even though it was October it was totally warm and comfortable the entire lesson. ~
My wife and I took out first surf lesson ever yesterday and had a blast! Or instructor was Jill and she was amazing! The instruction was thorough, and informative. Safety was explained to a point where we would feel comfortable going alone next time. Would recommend to anyone who wants to learn how to surf. ~
Signed my kids (15 and 14) up for surf lessons here and within an hour they were up and at it. Great staff at this school. All the instructors were engaged and focused on making this a great experience for everyone in the classes. ~
Camps Surf Camp FAQs
Questions? We've got answers.
What is the difference between booking 2 days of regular group lessons, or the 2 day surf camp?
Our 2 day surf camp is built with a specific curriculum to progress you forward from day one to day two. You will be paired up with the same instructor for the duration of your camp, getting a personal experience while improving your surf skills.
Booking two days of regular group surf lessons does not guarantee you the same instructor, and will include the same beach and safety talk from day one to day two.
Do I keep my gear the whole time?
Yes! Once signed up for a 2 or 3 day surf camp, you will have access to your own surf gear for the entire 48 or 72 hours. You will be responsible for this gear, meaning you'll have to transport it to and from the beach on the day of your lessons, and return it to the shop at the end.
How do I book?
How old do you have to be to participate?
Participants must be at least 13 years old to participate.
Will I need a car?
You will be responsible for the transportation of yourself and your gear for the 2-3 days, so we do recommend having a vehicle to make your time out here a bit easier. If you do not have a vehicle, check out our standard lessons - included in them is the transportation of all gear to and from the beach.
Is accommodation provided?
No. Our surf camps are built around the surf aspect of your time in Tofino. We do have accommodation partners we recommend you check out here!
