High quality, locally made AFTANAS surf boards, are available for rent. These boards are designed specifically for our local ocean short period swell conditions and range in size from 5’10’’ to 9’6’’ giving us options for riding knee high or double overhead waves. The addition of these boards to our rental pool is to better serve our intermediate guest who no longer wants to ride our soft top line of boards. 

A variety of surf equipment is available for rent in our Surf Club Adventure Centre.
* NOTE: full equipment rentals are included with all surf lessons

What an experience... I'm hooked! I couldn't stand sitting in the Great Room & watching the surfers any longer so signed up for a lesson with The Surf Club. Having never attempted this crazy sport, I really wasn't too sure what I was getting myself into but was told that I would be SAFE, WARM & have A TON OF FUN. It's all true! Imagine being warm while surfing in the cold waters of the Pacific Ocean in December! Try it... you'll get hooked too!!
