Despite a lack of ocean and surf-worthy waves in the city of Toronto, Surfset is an offbeat gym that provides a workout inspired by the balance and strength you need to move with agility on a board. The studio's classes make use of mechanized RipSurfer X boards, which feature a gentle rocking motion that mimics the movement of the sea. Almost like a bike at a spin class, the boards can be set with three levels of resistance to challenge your balance. Surfset offers a number of rigorous workouts, which take inspiration from yoga poses to build core strength and grace.

The studio is airy and open, much like the way yoga studios are typically set up. Similarly, the classes are priced like the average yoga class as well.
