Dedicated to teaching pupils of all abilities to catch Nova Scotia’s waves, Dacane Surf Shop’s crew of seasoned instructors keeps students in motion via hands-on camps and lessons held throughout the year. Under the helm of a knowledgeable guide, Surf Camp participants take to the water in a group of up to five students to ensure individualized instruction and tangle-free group hugs upon return to dry land. Over the course of 90 minutes, students partake in beach- and ocean-based exercises tailored to accommodate individual skill and experience levels.

Alternatively, 90-minute private surfing lessons grant aquanauts one-on-one time with a board guru in which to build up an arsenal of swell-riding savvy. Ten-hanging gurus expound upon surfing essentials, from basic rules of etiquette and safety to more advanced moves such as paddling technique or landing a triple lutz. Students should bring along a bathing suit, towel, and waterproof sunscreen to their session to render bodies impervious to water and ultraviolet rays.

Dacane Surf Shop

Through trials and tribulations, Dacane Surf Shop owner Lance Moore has always strived to provide the best opportunities and gear for wave-tamers. Having hatched the shop's first incarnation in his mother's basement and moved on to locations where break-ins and robberies were rampant, he maintained his focus on learning his trade before finally settling in Halifax. Always looking to stay one step ahead of the sport, Lance and his team seek out the most cutting-edge surfing equipment available from reputable designers such as Channel Islands, Santa Cruz, and Watercooled. His instructors customize surf camps and lessons to help mould burgeoning aquanauts of all ages and skill levels, and hip threads from the likes of Quiksilver and Billabong keep them looking the part. The surf shack also sets up adventurists with stand-up paddleboards, skim boards, body boards, and all the accessories needed to coast the whitecaps or add authenticity to an online dating profile.

Customer Reviews

The lady in the store was very friendly and helpful. Annie also was a great surfing instructor, funny and had a great attitude despite us dragging her out on such a foggy/rainy day. She even gave me a great pancake recipe. :-P
