“So glad I went to westside!”
Reviewed 21 October 2011

After my last attempt at surfing I really thought it was not my sport and did not think I would go again, but once I met the guys at Westside and was advised that I just needed a few professional lessons and had a chance to meet their team i felt maybe I should try again. And I am so glad I did! My instructor, Steve, was so patient and informative about all the terminology and information on water safety, within the first hour I felt I really overcame my fears and had an amazing time! I will definitely be going back to Westside Surf next time I am in tofino! Thanks guys!

“The most awsome surfing experience of my life!”
Reviewed 16 October 2011

I was struggling with my surfing for three years and decided I needed help.
The instructor (Shannon) was terrific. He was able to watch what I was doing and advise me of better body mechanics, to improve my skills. In a very short time (90 min.) he had me surfing like I never thought myself capable of. He opened up a whole new word of
surfing for me.
Thank you Westside Surf School.
Gratefuly Yours.......Ian
