Our Crew


You won’t just remember him for his bad jokes, man bun or horrible tan lines but his inability to talk about anything other than surfing! No, he is in fact not from Australia, nor is New Zealand the lower part of Australia. Hailing from Christchurch, New Zealand, Ryan has an immense love of the ocean and a breadth of knowledge when it comes to water safety. He may not be the first kiwi you meet nor the last in Tofino, but he hopes to leave you with a love of surfing and some good memories!


Everything is always better when Kiwi's are around! Lucky for us, Brit moved to Tofino after spending most of her time in Whistler. Since winter was up in the snow capped mountains, she was ready to trade in her snowboard for the surfboard. She loves doggos, so come say hi and bring ya pup!


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! 🤙🏼

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 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!”
