Great day of surfing
Tess_C, Nov 2023
We had a great time and learned a lot. Our instructor was great with our kids (11 & 16) and got both of them up on their boards quickly. We all had a blast.
First timers

Being able to experience surfing with my kids mom (44) daughters (11)(15) was amazing. I was able to catch 2 waves as a first timer. Noah the instructor was amazing!
The instructor was great....

The instructor was great. Mist of us were able to catch our first wave on our first try! He makes sure to set you up and give you a push. He also gave pointers and tips and let us try without the push. I didn't think we'd be able to get around 6 waves each!
Great surf lesson/riding waves!

Our family of 4 just loved it!! If you are a beginner and need the support from a very professional but relaxed instructor, definitely book this 2hr surf lesson. Our surf teacher Janelle was great! My kids became very comfortable riding waves in no time.
Excellent. This is the lesson to take!

Max, the instructor was brilliant. A very professional teacher. My three kids (11, 15 and 16) and I had a great first time surfing. By the end we were riding the waves like Pros! Max was also really helpful with suggestions for places to visit on the islands. Would take further lessons without hesitation. There’s valet parking outside the shop ($10 for 3 hours), or take your chance with finding a spot on the road.
Good, was hoping for more…

The instructor was very patient and safety oriented. Good experience overall, but I was hoping for a bit more exposure to catching the wave by yourself rather than the instructor pushing us …it felt more like a souped up boogie board experience….

The best part was the experience, they explained how to surf really well and they made it super easy and fun!
Great first surfing experience
Kylee_A, Sep 2021
Had such a fun time learning to surf. The instructor made things simple and easy to learn. Taught the basics including how to fall safely
10/10 would recommend
Naomi_A, Sep 2021
What a memorable experience! We were a couple minutes late, but called for a heads up and there were no issues (parking can be a hassle nearby, bring coins for the meter!) Josh was our instructor, great conversationalist. Everyone in our group got some great waves and the waves were all ours, no one to watch out for or share with. 2hrs is the perfect amount of time to catch as many waves as you want!
Beginners surfing

Great instructor … had a couple 11 year olds out there and we all managed got up; did not think that was possible your first time surfing. Thanks!
Best surfing school
John_C, Jul 2021
Our family of 5 had an awesome surfing experience with Janelle. We learned how to surf and most importantly, had a blast. 😉 We had a great time!!! Janelle was a great teacher. She’s pleasant, patient, accommodating, taught us a lot of tips how to stand up on the board, how to paddle correctly, how to fall on the water and what to expect w the waves. Hands down best surfing experience in Oahu than we had in Maui 3 years ago!
The highlight of our vacation to Hawaii
Brian_L, Jul 2021
Kai was great with Our family of four. Our youngest daughter got nervous going out to the surf. Kai was terrific calming her down and getting her surfing. The kids said it was the highlight of our vacation
So Much Fun!!!
Kirk_L, Jul 2021
Had a total blast and everyone in the family was able to catch some waves. Instructor was awesome and even gave us some excellent tips for food and other stuff to do on the island.
Great instruction, great time!!!
John_M, Jul 2021
Outstanding! We did the group lesson with Jake and had a great time! We will definitely do this again!
Good instruction
Nancy_S, May 2021
Sean our instructor was good and seemed toreally know his stuff. He was friendly and helpful. The problem I had was that they allowed us to book a group of 6 and it was way too much for one instructor. If it had been three people per instructor it would have been perfect.
Great experience
Jeanette_D, Jan 2021
