What a wonderful experience! Everything was taken care of ; from transportation to hotels and tours. The surf was great for learning and our instructors Kate and Nicole were amazing! I loved the "classroom" lessons prior to each trip out into the waves. It gave me a better understanding of what I was to be doing and how to be... More

Best week of my life. A high-bank ocean front room I could NEVER afford in Tofino; miles of sandy beach break entirely to ourselves; non-stop sun; no wetsuit; kind, attentive, and very competent instructors; a baby hawksbill turtle release; massages from an ex guerrilla commander; tropical wildlife e.g. geckos and green parrots; a small earthquake; smoking volcanoes; fresh squeezed orange...

Went for 7 days to El Salvador with a group of friends through surf sister. Amazing! Kate and Nicole were fantastic instructors and hosts, well thought out itinerary and good surfing/other activities balance. I didn't want to leave and appreciated how thoughtful Kate and Nicole were about every detail to make sure the group was enjoying themselves. Highly recommend!

Surf Sister employees were friendly and helpful, and our instructor Lydia was fantastic! She was knowledgeable, patient, friendly, fun, and a great teacher.

I have now had two lessons with Surf Sisters and both have been fantastic. After meeting at the shop, we made our way to the beach and suited up. After a short time of teaching on the beach- during which we were given really useful tips on how to surf- we got into the water, where we spent most of... More

A great place to learn to surf or refresh your minimal skills before tackling Cox Bay! Staff are friendly, attentive, skilled and offer lots of support in the water. The only recommendation I would have is to offer hoods in the off season rather than make the assumption that 'it isn't needed' because it's warm enough (which may be true... More

I researched before I chose a surf school. There may be cheaper options, but I doubt the quality is equal. My instructor Emma was amazing. I ended up with a private lesson, and couldn't be happier. Emma was knowledgable, not just with surfing, but local life as well. I was even able to surf my final wave for a good... More

Spent the second week of August learning how to surf with Sherri and Remi. They were both great instructors - informative, friendly, and passionate. Basics were covered on the beach, and we hit the water day one - the rest of the week started with a short discussion on surfing conditions and a short q&a for anything that had come... More
