The Queen of the Peak – Women’s Surf Championships was created in 2009 by Surf Sister and Shelter Restaurant to celebrate and showcase the amazing female surf talent here on the west coast of Vancouver Island. The contest itself spans over 3 days in Tofino, Canada and offers amenities to competitors such as a complimentary welcome dinner, free childcare, free beachside massages and more. In 2017, more than 100 women and children competed on the waves for cash and prizes in Longboard, Shortboard and Princess of the Peak divisions. This community event has grown into a week-long festival with fun accompanying events such as yoga on the beach, a movie premiere, and dance party! We hope you can join us as and celebrate Queen of the Peak! This Tofino contest is also a fundraiser, with partial sales of contest gear and beachside food sales by Wildside Grill going toward the Tofino Hospital Foundation.
