About: These 3 day courses are offered biannually in the spring and fall. The weekends are a perfect introduction to SUP surfing in coastal areas.  Enjoy the magic of Tofino and the west coast on our fun, friendly surf weekend. Entering our fifth year of paddle surf instruction, we provide clients with enjoyable, technical surf and ocean training. Our weekend is designed to introduce paddlers to the ocean environment with the goal of catching your first wave or improving on your existing surf skill set. Surfers will take part in on-water and dry land based teaching sessions, with video analysis sessions, that will focus on safety, etiquette, paddling technique.  We teach swell forecasting and critical thinking in a dynamic ocean environment, whether catching your first or your tenth ride. Our industry leading surf instructors provide technical coaching that will steepen your learning curve and keep you safe in the ocean environment.

Course ratio will be kept to a maximum of 1:4 to ensure safety and increase personal instruction time.
