Learn to surf with us

Our lessons are the most comprehensive, safe, and fun lessons you'll find on the west coast! We focus on teaching you how to surf, not simply just how to stand up. This means you'll leave with tools to grow your surf skills when we aren't around to help. We are also happy to price match guarantee all of our lesson prices. 

Lessons are 2.5 hours long, include all equipment for the duration of the lesson, and take place at one of the many beautiful beaches close to Tofino.

Our team

Our surf instructors are all Bronze Cross, First Aid, & CPR C certified. We teach and train instructors in accordance to BCASI regulations, and your safety is our number one priority (with your fun being a close second!).

We build our team with intention, meaning the instructors we hire are here because they have a deep passion for not only surfing, but sharing their love for surfing.

Check out our staff page to get to know a few of them a bit better!


We ensure that all lessons maintain a maximum 1:5 instructor to student ratio, and we offer lessons at many different times of the day to make sure something works for you. If you or your group are needing something special or out of the ordinary, give us a call! We are happy to do all we can to make your experience the best possible.


We took a family surf lesson with Luke on July 10th. He was a great teacher and was really hands on with the kids. We all enjoyed our afternoon very much, it was so much fun. This was our first time........anyone out there that is scared, think they cant do, book with Pacific Surf, they will make you fall in love and enjoy every minute. ~Surfed July 2019

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. ~Surfed January 2019

We had a AMAZING group surfing lesson! The instructor was extremely friendly and helpful and did his best to support us throughout the entire lesson. Pacific Surf School met us on time and provided us with all of our surfing equipment. I would definitely recommend this surfing school to anyone who has never surfed before! ~Surfed June 2019

My wife and I had a private group lesson for ourselves today and it was absolutely wonderful. From the very beginning booking was quick and easy, and communication with the company prior to arriving was always prompt and informative. On the day of our lesson everything went smoothly, our instructor was super happy and friendly which helped us shake off some of the nerves about our very first time surfing! If anyone is looking for a company to take lessons with I would look no further, this is where you wanna do it! Far exceeded our expectations! ~Surfed May 2019

My fiancée and I spent a rainy Saturday session with Adam from Pacific Surf Co. and it was AWESOME. Adam's energy and enthusiasm to share his passion for surfing was infectious and even though neither of us had tried surfing before we had the best time. We were a bit worried about the weather but the wetsuits kept us super warm and comfortable too. Adam doesn't know this but I proposed right after we got back from our surfing class. So Adam, thanks for brightening our day and setting up one of the most memorable moments of our lives! 10/10 would recommend Pacific Surf Co. ~Surf October 2019
