Launching and landing a loaded sea kayak through the surf can be a real challenge. The ability to anticipate surf, read the surf zone, and control your kayak in the surf are essential skills for all open coastal paddlers. It's also a lot of fun! Surfing in Sea Kayaks is a blend of theory, skill, and experience.  During the course, you will progress step by step to maximize learning and minimize the risks. Topping it off, this course is run on the beautiful sand beaches near Ucluelet and Tofino.

Please note that SKILS is no longer offering kayak surfing courses at Jordan River. The reason is that the location is too crowded and the surf is often unreliable. The numerous beaches between Ucluelet and Tofino provide exceptional surfing conditions with all types of sea states and wind conditions. The surfing and learning experience is much better at these locations.
