The Queen of the Peak is an annual all Women’s Surf Contest created by Surf Sister and Shelter Restaurant. Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors the contest has grown into a three-day event held every October. Our presenting sponsors from2015 were Billabong, the Wickaninnish Inn, Wildside Grill, and Pacific Sands Beach Resort, with support from Tourism Tofino, Tofino Brewing Company, Pharmasave Tofino and more!

Contest Dates for 2016 are set for September 30th-October 2nd

The contest was created to showcase and celebrate the amazing female surf talent present here on the west coast. Contest organizers have focused efforts on designing the contest to be ‘female-friendly’ with free child care and dog sitting services for competitors and even has a massage tent that is complimentary for competitors.

Competitors vie for cash and prizes in longboard, shortboard and “Princess of the Peak” (16 years and under) divisions

Included in the entry fee for longboard, shortboard and Princess contestants is welcome dinner compliments of Shelter Restaurant on Thursday October 1st. All proceeds from the event are donated to the Keep a Breast Canada, whose mission is to help eradicate breast cancer by exposing young people to methods of prevention, early detection and support.
