Surfing on Vancouver Island takes place on the rugged west coast, home to rock reefs, white-sand beaches, and some of the most scenic cold water surfing in the world.
Tofino is Vancouver Island’s most popular surfing destination and was voted “Best Surf Town in North America” in 2010 by Outside Magazine. Tofino has also earned acclaim in Surfer Magazine and SBC Surf, and has hosted the O’Neill Cold Water Classic professional surfing competition.
Discover year-round waves near Tofino, Ucluelet and Sooke, ranging from beginner-friendly beach breaks on sandy shores to remote reef breaks sought out by experienced pros. Summer brings small waves, while surging storm swells batter the shores in winter.
