Surfing in British Columbia centres around the west coast of Vancouver Island and Haida Gwaii/Queen Charlotte Islands in Northern BC.
British Columbia has earned international acclaim as a top surfing destination. Tofino on Vancouver Island was named “Best Surf Town in North America” by Outside Magazine (2010), was host of the O’Neill Cold Water Classic (2009, 2010), and has been praised in publications such as Surfer Magazine and SBC Surf.
Discover popular surf spots (many in pristine parks) near Tofino and Ucluelet on Vancouver Island and Masset on Haida Gwaii. Surf shops offer rentals and provide instruction for all ages and levels of expertise.
BC surf spots may not boast tropical climates, but wetsuits take the chill out of cold water surfing. Rugged wilderness and great amenities (such as local food and oceanside accommodation) make British Columbia a one-of-a-kind surf destination.
