You will stay at Jamie's Rainforest Inn. The inn is a surf house that gives spectacular views of Clayoquot Sound and Strathcona Mountains in Tofino.

In this camp, you will surf alongside your surf coach each morning, develop your technique and style by watching a video of your surf sessions, and leave with a pro photo package of you in the surf. Pacific Surf School will teach you the fundamentals of surf forecasting (how to read winds, waves, and tides) so you will forever know where to surf and when.

Their pre-surf breakfasts will ensure that you are fueled up and ready to shred, and when you return home stoked and salty, they will have your lunch ready and waiting. Included dinners will be prepared for you in their gourmet kitchen and served "family-style" at the harvest table. Nights off can be spent enjoying one of Tofino's world-renowned restaurants for dinner or you are welcome to hit the grocery store and chef it up in the kitchen.

Yoga sessions are also offered from Monday to Friday, to help you stretch your muscle for surfing. This camp is suitable for everyone from complete beginners to intermediate surfer.

  • Allan

    Allan is the team motivator with enough energy for everyone and more to spare for you! Allan has graced lots of countries on his travels including; Indonesia, Japan, Australia, Mexico, and now Tofino. Allan also happens to be the shop mechanic and that has proven to be very useful as surf vehicles can be as unreliable as Tofino weather, lucky they've got Allan to depend on.
