I’ve never been a particularly sporty girl, but I’ve never had so much fun as when I learned to surf. I recently flew out to Tofino, B.C. to attend a Roxy Surf Camp. The spectacular Pacific Ocean setting is an ideal place to learn because of the soft, sandy beaches which help cushion your falls (and there will be many as you learn). I was taught the basics of boarding by the family run Bruhwiler Surf School, who offer weekend long Roxy surf camps for girls and Quicksilver for boys throughout the summer – either would make an amazing adventure for a bachelor or bachelorette party or just as a treat with a friend.
Roxy/Quicksilver Bruhwiler Surf Camp, $175 for 2 days of lessons.
