Myoka brouhgt her sister along for the adventure. The girls enjoyed two days of surfing lessons at Surf Sister Surf School, they had so much fun that they decided to share a piece of their adventure with us.

Hear from the girls.

The whole trip was surreal, we would often look at each other and say 'Is this real?'  The best part of the trip was arriving in Tofino for our first night, walking down the beach, sticking our feet in the sand and watching a beautiful sunset.  Our trip was absolutely out of this world.

There is nothing quite like standing up on your board for the first time.  This comes very well earned after choking on the salty water a few times! Kim at Surf Sister School was the best instructor we could have asked for! Our second day of surf proved to be more challenging.  Our muscles were a little less willing to cooperate and our 'pop up' wasn't as graceful.  Not to mention the waves were higher than our heads, a little intimidating but 100% addictive!
