The Queen of the Peak - Women's Surf Championships was created in 2010 by Surf Sister and Shelter Restaurant to celebrate and showcase the amazing 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 2019  more than 130 women and children competed 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 art shows, Yoga, movie premiers, and dance parties.  We hope you can join us as and celebrate the Queen's of the Peak! Dates for 2020 are set for October 2-4, 2020.
