Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Amazing experience from start to finish. Answered all our questions and more by phone, helped accommodate a few unique challenges and when we arrived in Tofino - the team at the shop were awesome. Loved that we just showed up at beach and suits and boards were ready to go! Theo the instructor was welcoming, informative, patient and attentive. Photos are great too! Everything was perfect - HIGHLY recommend!

We had a great time today with first time surfing lessons with the team at Pacific Surf Co. The instructors were awesome, knowledgable, encouraging and helpful. It was so much fun and would highly recommend giving these guys a go. Cheers!

Absolutely fantastic! We had an amazing group lesson with Charlie who was kind, clear, patient, knowledgeable, and an amazing surfer! We had a completely amazing time out in the ocean. The company was responsive and reliable. Highly recommend.

Pacific Surf Co. is awesome! We showed up unannounced (definitely book ahead, I’m sure they’d appreciate it!) and the crew was amazing about getting us set up with gear and a group lesson. They took care of everything and had great attitudes about it. Kris was a fantastic teacher, her instructions were really clear and she got us out on the water super quick. We all had a great time, Kris gave us really good feedback that got most of us who’d never surfed up on the boards within the hour. Would highly recommend!

Our grandsons (aged 9 and 11) had an amazing morning with Vince at Chesterman Beach. The 2 1/2 hour lesson was perfect and by the end of the lesson they were proudly able to stand and feel like they were surfing. Vince is an excellent instructor and the boys came away exhausted but thrilled with the whole experience. We highly recommend this group! Many thanks!!

Our teenagers had a beginners surf lesson with Pacific Surf Company on our trip to Tofino. We registered with the HQ in town and then headed off to the designated beach for the day (Cox Beach) to meet the instructor. The girls were given good instruction on land before heading into the water. The instructor got hem both standing up. They had a great time and the back drop for their lesson was beautiful. They had a ball!

My husband and I did not know what to expect when we signed up for a surfing lesson! Surfing in February seemed impossible but we learned that this is probably the most amazing time to surf! It was exhilarating being in the Pacific with our wetsuits on to keep us from freezing! Seth, our instructor, was top notch! He was incredibly knowledgeable, encouraging, and patient! Every time I looked at him he had a smile that showed he really loves what he does🙂 We are so thankful to Seth and the Pacific Surf Co. crew for showing us such an amazing new sport which we will continue to enjoy in the future! Surf on!

3rd trip with these guys. Pros with family and fun. We could rent all the stuff and do the same thing but it's great to get the refresher for the kids and have one of their pro team help them while out of shape parents try to live young....ha ha. Really professionally run team, you won't be disappointed.

Vince is an awesome instructor! It was a perfect day, even though it was raining. While people looked cold and wet walking along the beach, we were nice and toasty in those thick wetsuits :)
