A few reasons to rent from Live To Surf

1. Satisfaction Guaranteed! If you don’t have fun, we’ll give you credit towards another rental to try it again.


2. You have the option of getting gear whenever you need it. Don’t pay when you don’t need it.
3. You won’t be paying for rental time while you are travelling. The nearest neighbouring cities are 2-3 hrs away, which means you are paying for extra days just to travel.
4. If something breaks or malfunctions we can repair or replace it right away while you are still in Tofino. We also maintain our gear on a daily basis.
5. The swell may not be working the whole time you are here. You don’t want to be stuck with gear if the surf is flat.
6. You don’t have to transport your boards to and from Tofino. (Many people improperly mount their boards and lose them on the way here)
7. Your gear will be set up correctly from the get go. (Many people get here and realize that their boards are missing fins, leashes, etc)
8. You don’t have to worry about storing your gear the whole time you’re here. Surf equipment is a high commodity and expensive to replace. If you rent from us, then we can store it overnight and you don’t have to worry about it.
9.We are the closest shop to the beach and have over 25yrs experience.


If you get a lesson and want to surf all day, we will give you 20% off a daily rental for gear
