The certified instructors at Tofino Surf School teach the beginner and intermediate techniques needed to master the art of wave riding during daily surfing lessons for students aged 12 and older. During each three-hour lesson, the expert wave wranglers transport pupils to and from a nearby beach, where the school supplies all requisite equipment and back-up batteries for powering the ocean’s wave machine. Beginner classes teach novice boarders the safety fundamentals needed to surf in the ocean and then send students paddling out into the water to cut across waves. The sessions have a one to five instructor to student ratio, allowing the pros to focus individually on each surfer. Intermediate group lessons take a maximum of five students into the aquatic playground to duck and dive. Board riders learn to read and select waves, execute bottom turns, and master trimming so that they can carve the name of their favourite celebrity porpoise.

Customer Reviews

I had a great time! The instructors were great about giving feedback and tips to each student. The only recommendation I have is to provide more of an explanation at the beginning of class on how to read waves, riptides etc., safety procedures, how to find balance on your board, and give the students more time on the beach to practice popping up on their board before getting into the water. You guys were really personable, very encouraging and enthusiastic, it was great!

My mom, sisters and I had an amazing time! It was great how much time we actually spent in the water.

It was a little difficult hearing the instructions when we were one big group. Some of my friends mentioned that they would have appreciated more practice on the beach before going into the water, and found the "watch and learn" approach insufficient for them. It was good for most of us, though.
