A truly exceptional experience all round! Jason the GM answered my email in advance with assurance of good stock and no need to book. When we arrived I had know idea who he was but I observed him being kind and giving great options to surfers who wanted to extend their rental days. He then greeted us with enthusiasm, gave... More

My boys wanted to go boogie boarding on a rainy Sunday afternoon. The staff were really helpful in fitting them with wetsuits and boards, and providing advice on safe beach to go to. Good price too!

first off, in my MANY experiences dealing with LBSS, I can guarantee you will never encounter any attitude (either location). I read one bad review on here but I bet the person was simply surfed out, exhausted and maybe a little impatient with an impending check out at their hotel because that is long beach's shtick: zero attitude. the shop...

When we went to rent, the guy was super nice and helpful. He greeted us, made conversation and joked around. There was six of us and he managed everything super smooth. We all tried on booties for size, he got us our suits, put them in a bin and while we did that another lady put the soft top rack... More

From advising what equipment to rent and helping the shoppers in our party with purchases the staff couldn't have been more helpful. So knowledgeable on a daily basis which beach has the best waves for our skill levels. It was clear during the time we spent in the store that this is a place that locals come for advice, info...

We were a family of 4 newbies. They set us up with great boards and wetsuits. We had a great day surfing. Upon returning the rental gear the staff immediately greeted us with smiles and unloaded our rental gear from our vehicle. Very friendly, pleasant people to do business with.

Very helpful staff greeted us with a smile every time we went in. Seemed very happy to help us and I noticed this was consistent with other customers. Now, do the price comparison: what the heck, other surf shops?! It's about half. Very fair value and included everything you need, including roof transport. By the time we had picked out... More

The good folks at Long Beach surf shop are always helpful and have great gear. They are excellent at matching the kids up with appropriate boards. We come to Tofino every year and always use this shop for gear rental. Right across the street from our other favourite, Surf Sisters surfing lessons.

We now rent from Long Beach Surf Shop each time we visit Tofino. The first time we visited this shop I was a little intimidated, as I had never surfed or boogie boarded in the past. But, the friendly, knowledgeable staff helped with everything! They can suit you up perfectly from just looking at you. Our son's wetsuit rubbed the... More

This is a review for the sister shop in Ucluelet - we did not visit the Tofino branch but the experience we had in Ukee was about the same as the existing reviews. We visited a few times end of July to mid August. Awesome people running this place, super helpful for beginners and my impression is that experienced surfers... More
