CNN Talks Surfing in Tofino
Tofino’s surf culture continues to surprise and delight warm water surfers as profiled in this CNN iReport video. Check out travel reporter Tracy Bymoen’s candid interviews with locals to get the scoop on what makes Tofino’s surf scene so special.
Filmed steps from Pacific Sands in Cox Bay, this video is a fun look at what Tofino may lack in palm trees, it makes up for in uncrowded, safe beaches and untouched forests. Speaking of which, we love the part when Josh Lewis compares Tofino’s 10,000-year-old forests to Tofino's “rugged, wilderness surfers…the Davey Crocketts of the surfing world.” Classic!
Ready to ride? Our Pacific Surf Package with the cool chicks at Surf Sister welcomes kids and families of all ages, all abilities. It includes equipment and lessons for two, which depending on skill levels and wave action, are held right here in Cox Bay or a couple of beaches down on Chesterman.
Listen, we mean it when we say we offer “front-row seats to nature’s greatest waterpark”…see for yourself on our webcam and get an up-to-the-minute look at surf conditions (or just bookmark the page for when you need a beach fix).
