Tofino Surf School happy young woman surfing

What you get

Lessons run for 3.0 hours. We provide all necessary equipment: wetsuits, boots, and surf boards. The usage of our equipment is included in the price.

What happens

On a typical lesson we meet at the office. There we will ask you to pay for your lesson, sign a waiver & try on a wetsuit. Then we drive to the beach as a group. We take care of the surfboards & equipment. You drive yourself to the beach.

We will go as one line of cars so no one needs to worry about getting lost. It's a good idea to park in our parking lot off of Campbell St. Then we can all start driving from the same place.

Please arrive at the office wearing your swimsuit. We have one washroom which we share with other business owners so if a whole group needs to change, it can cause the lesson to run late. Guys will need to wear brief style underwear, a speedo style swimsuit or cycling shorts. Boxers/ swim trunks are too baggy to wear underneath the wetsuits.

We have change covers if needed so no one will see you in your skivvies !

Tofino Surf School is a local, owner operated Surf School.

Jeff Hasse (owner, operator) a.k.a. Jeffro, caught his first wave at 8 years old and now at 40 has been chasing waves ever since. Surfing has been a life long passion and has taken him to different points around the globe - catching waves from the Pacific to the Atlantic. Even catching waves on the Great Lakes!

He has been living and surfing in Tofino for over ten years and now calls Tofino Home. Jeffro opened Tofino Surf School in the winter of 2007*
