Surf Capital of Canada

Canada has the longest coastline in the world and there’s no place better to learn to surf, or to hone your skills, than the surf capital of Canada. The Pacific Rim region offers a consistent water temperature and miles and miles of surfable beach break, leaving lots of room for beginners to experts all year round.
