Our Crew

Sophia

Originally from the city that never sleeps... New York... Sophia has grown to love the kind people and slower pace of life here on the island. When she’s not at work, she’s either surfing, hiking or teaching English. As an artist, she paints on the waves with her surfboard! Whether she’s greeting you at the front desk, or instructing a lesson, she is just as stoked to get you out on a wave, as you are to ride it!

 

Phil

Introducing Phil...  a tie loathing adventurer and thrill seeker. The only kind of meetings he truly enjoys are "board meetings." You will find him exploring the natural world with a camera and surfboard. TED Talk enthusiast, globetrotter and filmer, not to mention bit of a coffee nut. "If nothing is going right, surf a left!" Sea you there! 🤙🏼

Dan

Daniel first came to Tofino in 2014 and fell in love with surfing... surprise, surprise!!  Since then, life has been about being in the water as much as possible, having now surfed in eight different countries and counting. "Only thing better than surfing is helping other people fall in love with it."

Adam

Adam decided to move to Tofino back in 2014 and has been in the water for as long as he can remember. He swam competitively for a decade but then quickly 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!”
