Surfing

 

Mile upon mile of beautiful sandy beach meet the untamed Pacific Ocean to create Canada's own surfing paradise: Tofino.Within 30 minutes of town there are six top quality surfing beaches. Each beach faces a slightly different direction so no matter which way the swells are coming in there's always somewhere to ride.Before you hit the water, be sure to check out the latest surf conditions!

 

Surf Etiquette

 

We all have to share the water, so the safer we surf and the more we learn, the better our sessions will be. Kayakers: that goes for you as well!

 

1. Do not paddle out to a break that is beyond your ability. (Learning to surf at Jordan River in the winter is a bad idea).
2. When paddling out and confronted with a wave hovering overhead doesn't ditch your board! Hold onto it and learn how to duck dive.
3. When you have paddled out and made it to the line up, taking the 1st wave you see is poor etiquette. Remember there is a line up of sorts.
4. Smile, ask questions, take some time to look around and see where the take off spots are and where the best places to paddle are at.
5. Respect the locals: they have a lot of knowledge of the waves and the beaches in that particular area.
6. Don't paddle around someone who is in position to catch a wave by paddling further out or further inside. They are in position set up for the next wave.
7. The most important thing that we can all bring with us to a surf session is our common sense. Without the understanding of some simple guidelines it will only be a matter of time before someone in your surf session gets seriously hurt!
