Wick'd Surf Camps
After 12 years gliding down the powdery slopes of Whistler, British Columbia, Andy Herridge heeded the call of the ocean: he traveled the world, surfing the beaches of Australia, New Zealand, and Hawaii, and eventually settled on Vancouver Island's west coast. He opened Wick'd Surf Camps as a way to share his enthusiasm for the sport with others. He leads lessons of up to five students at a time, starting with on-land lessons that cover safety and practice basics such as paddling and standing. After that, Andy takes his pupils onto the water to ride their first waves. Besides these standard lessons, Andy partners students up with yoga instructors for surf-oriented yoga classes, and he happily guides more advanced surfers to some of the area’s best spots.
