Our Crew


Hey, my name is Sam.  Born and raised in Winchester, England, I visited the Netherlands a lot while growing up, as I am half dutch.  I recently moved to Canada to experience real sized mountains and spent the past winter at Mt. Washington, working as a snowboard instructor  There, I achieved my CASI level 2 and park certification.  I even taught my new boss's son to snowboard!  Back home, I worked as a science and math teacher.  I have a love for teaching people the things I am passionate about and now I get to do this with surfing.  I love to travel as well and teaching people how to surf and snowboard will help keep this addiction going!


Hi, I'm Hen.  I'm 24 & from across the pond, in Brighton, UK.  I've come to Canada to dial in my ski and surf skills.  I just spent the winter in Whistler and now in Tofino for my first summer.  I love painting and surfing so if you see me doing either at the beach, please do say 'hi'!  Feel fee to check out some of my work at my website, www.artbyhen.co.uk


Hello, my name is Lexi!  I am from Australia, currently traveling around Canada and I am absolutely loving it.  Surfing, skiing and hiking are some of my favorite activities and am excited to keep these up whilst I'm up here in Tofino, from way downunda.  Looking forward to sharing waves with you and teaching you some auzzie slang!


TSA manager, Adam decided to move to Tofino in 2014 and has never looked back.  He has been in the water for as long as he can remember as he was practically born with swim goggles on.  Adam swam competitively for a decade, even representing Canada, but then smartened up and realized that surfing is a lot more fun!  Out of all the schools he has taught for, “TSA has let me share what I love about surfing with visitors and locals from ages 5 to 75. Every year just keeps getting better!”
