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.

    I had a great private Beginner lesson: Kaizac was knowledgeable about the conditions, safety conscious at all times, and had easily digestible instructions. He was kind and fun for the entire lesson experience , which made for a super enjoyable lesson. The wetsuit and gear was appropriately sized, and I barely noticed that it was a cold water experience at all - toasty warm the whole time.

    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!

    Great fun, well organized (think Geoff in office, may have remembered name wrong), friendly instructors (Raffaele and Jake) gave really good clear tips and were very encouraging. Gear was good quality and was surprised how warm it felt in the suit considering it was still March. Thanks for a fun afternoon!

    It was a great experience, Wonderful to have the lesson a short walk from the lodge to the beach.
    The sauna and hot tub were a welcome luxury after the lesson.
    Long Beach Lodge's staff leading up to and during the lesson were very accommodating, welcoming, approachable and positive.

    They were doing a booming surfboard rental/lesson biz while we were there waiting to get in to the store (like all places, distancing measures means bit of wait outside w/ only so many allowed in store - no problem) they have some nice casual clothes.

    Sepp and team were amazing and so so nice! Great instruction / guidance and our whole group got up surfing several times as beginners! This is such a great surf school! Gear was in great shape and the price was better than elsewhere. Thanks so much!

    Such a great experience with Andrew and Sadler Surf School. He helped me unlearn some bad habits, gave me heaps of constructive feedback and was super encouraging. A real gem and worth every dollar to improve my surf skills hugely in just two hours!!!

    Our whole family was very happy with the private lesson we purchased. We had an amazing experience.

    The staff at the store was very accommodating and pleasant to talk to. They helped us prepare the gear and made some quick adjustments for the kids to feel as comfortable as possible in wet suits.

    The two surf instructors were great with our kids 8 & 6 years old. The kids enjoyed their surf instructors as well. The adults had a blast!!!!! Well done LB and A.

    This operator, or his employees, have been living and polluting the backwoods of the area. Tofino Kayaking Surf obviously does not care for the area, and is not running a legitimate business.
