An All Inclusive West Coast Paddle Surf Experience in Tofino.

We are excited to be hosting our paddle surf retreat in the surfing capital of Canada, Tofino and during September, one of the best surf months of the year. Tofino is an ideal location for our camp with its numerous sand beach breaks and gentle conditions perfect for learning to paddle surf. Don’t worry if your already have some paddle surfing experience as there will be waves of all levels for everyone. 

Our camp is hosted at Rancho Tofino, a private and laid back location and steps away from one of the best surf breaks and sunset locations at Cox Bay. Cath and Zak built the Rancho for families and surfers alike with forest views from every room, a 65 inch TV for video coaching, heated floors and a wood stove. The space is spacious and provides a comfortable and warm base camp for our week of paddle surfing, yoga, and coaching. Delicious meals with local seafood and fresh baking are prepared in house and with love by Chef Jenni Bunyan. Each night our day will wrap with a shared meal around the custom wood table as we reflect on good times and our great day sharing waves. 

Our days will begin with yoga and morning movement followed by a delicious and energizing breakfast before heading out for our daily surf. Depending on conditions we may surf twice a day with a number  of the sessions being video recorded so coaches can provide critical feedback that you will carry with you into your next session. Beyond the surfing we will have time to enjoy rainforest hikes, family style dinners, world famous sunsets and time for exploring the quaint fishing village of Tofino.  With lots of laughs and great connections with good people you will not want to leave the magic of the West Coast of Vancouver Island. We are really excited to welcome you into our paddle surfing family here in Tofino.
