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. Its also a lot of fun! Surfing in Sea Kayaks is a blend of theory, skill, and experience. We progress step by step to maximize learning and minimize the risks.Topping it off, we run this course on the beautiful sand beaches of the Esowista Peninsula, just south of Tofino.
Please note that we are no longer offering kayak surfing courses at Jordan River anymore. The reason is because the location is to 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.
- Comfortable swimming 25 metres with a PFD.
