The certified instructors at Tofino Surf School guide budding wave walkers with personalized, small-group surfing lessons for all ages and skill levels. In a beginners' session, surfing specialists equip clusters of five with all necessary gear, including riding crops and jodhpurs, before balancing them on boards for three hours of skimming across the surface of the water. Alternatively, younger assemblages of up to four pupils with parents can explore beach life in a three-hour family lesson, during which safety and a deeper understanding of sea amusement receive top priority. Since the school keeps class sizes small, ripple riders receive individualized attention to hone specific skills such as controlling balance, holding poses, and parallel parking.

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.
