Great surfing experience
Guanyi_L, Mar 2024
The couches were really helpful and professional. They also took great photos during the surfing. Really enjoyed and will continue surfing in future.

Christy_G, Feb 2024
My children (age 14 and 13) had a great first surfing experience. The instructor was kind and helpful.
Surfs up!
Michael_C, Jan 2024
Super great. Romeo, Miguel, and Jaydin worked hard to make our activity successful. Instruction was perfect for different abilities. Strong swimmer recommended.
Great for all ages
Lee_P, Jan 2024
We are a couple in our 50’s. We were not sure this was right for us. We are so glad we did it! It was amazing, so fun! The instructors make it way less physically draining then it would be doing it yourself. Both of us got up and we have great pictures to prove it!
Ohana Surf - A++
Angela_H, Dec 2023
Had originally tried to book surf lessons with another company but they wanted payment AND tips paid prior to our arrival to the Island. Not a good feel so cancelled. Searched reviews and found Ohana Surf on the Viator site (which I love). We were a family of 4 adults. Booking and payment was super easy and communication prior to our arrival from Viator and Ohana was constant and easy to understand. We were all impressed with the entire process from check/in (at the Marriott Hotel) all the way to checkout (review of pics and videos). Each group had a private instructor. We had (Andrew/aka Jacob) as well as a celebrity instructor (Marcus) for our party of 4. We made so many runs we were exhausted and ready to quit before our time was up. Not sure what took us so long but so glad our first time taking surf lessons was with Ohana Surf. Thanks Ohana! We are officially addicted to surfing.❤️
Response from Host, Dec 2023
Thank you!! It was a great time taking you and your family surfing. You kept up with the kids and you all rocked it out there. We are so glad you enjoyed your time with us and appreciate our teaching methods. Keep surfing and we hope to see you back again soon. Aloha from the whole team!!
Wonderful time
Miguel_L, Oct 2023
Wonderful experience for the kids. The instructors were amazing and had them surfing in no time. They now have an unforgettable memory.
Response from Host, Oct 2023
Mahalo Miguel! That means a lot to us. We’re so glad you all had a great experience with us and it’s always a pleasure to see you and your ohana out surfing. Lots of aloha from all of us!
100% MUST DO IN HAWAII!
Ashley_C, Oct 2023
Our instructors were absolutely amazing! We got so much special attention, and they truly helped us so much in trying to figure out the hang of surging - giving us pointers and how we can improve. Please book if you are visiting hawaii!

Great way to experience Surfing
jonny_T, Oct 2023
Me and my Wife did this. Had an Amazing morning. We are both not the strongest swimmer's and have never surfed before(both coming from the uk). Found the whole set up very good. I would suggest doing the 2 hour lessons because I think an hour is not long enough. We found the instructors very good and very patient with the whole group. We had Damien and Chelsea. Would reccomed to people.
Response from Host, Oct 2023

Awesome Day! Awesome Staff!
Chrisara_S, Sep 2023
This was an awesome experience! From communication before the event to the photos after, it was very smooth. Our Instructor, Mark, was the best! He was very attentive and wanted my husband and I to catch as many waves as possible during the 2 hours. If we got a little tired from paddling, he would help pull us out to the surf for the next wave. This day was definitely a highlight of our trip!
Response from Host, Oct 2023
Thank you so much for surfing with us and sharing your experience! It was truly a pleasure to surf with you and Adam. We hope to see you both again soon! Lots of aloha from the ‘Ohana team!
First surf experience
Austin_W, Aug 2023
The instructors are all amazing and splitting into small groups per instructor made it very easy for a one on one feel. Great price for pictures and videos! Would definitely go again!
Response from Host, Aug 2023

David_S, Jun 2023
Great 2-hour surfing lesson in Waikiki! Keola was an awesome coach! They picked us up close to our hotel and the whole process of a quick safety video and then straight into the water to surf was very smooth.

What a great time we had. The instructor was very thorough with what to do and we even stood up on the boards for 10 seconds! He said that was great.
Exceptional
Christine_B, Jun 2023
The team at Ohana surf, simply the best! From beginnning to end, the team prepped, instructed, and video taped beautifully.
So Amazing.
Jeff_B, May 2023
So fun but I have never been so exhausted either!! Good news was they helped paddle me out a few times when my arms didn’t want to move anymore. I did great and accomplished my goal. My kids of course did amazing and are surfing non stop now. Mark and Elle love to you both for all of your extra help getting me out to surf and the best encouragement ever!!!
Get ready for a great time !
Scott_D, May 2023
