Great kids private lessons
Andrea_T, Apr 2024
My twin 9 year old boys each did a private 2 hour lesson. Their instructors were amazing with them. They were very patient and encouraging. They even kept them close to each other in the water so that the photographer could get pictures with both of them in it. I would highly recommend.
Great Experience and Great Time!

Marc was awesome, such a great instructor and so motivational. I didn’t realize how cool it was to have multiple camera angles on you when you hit a wave. Also, the instructors really make it easy to catch a wave all you need to do is have your pop up on lock.
11/10 Expereince!!!
Laura_L, Feb 2024
Amazing experience! This was my first time surfing and I enjoyed it so much. My instructor was very friendly, helpful and a great teacher. I recommend booking with this Company for anyone wanting to try or learn how to surf! Thank you so much!
First time surfer standing up by second wave!
Russ_M, Jan 2024
This was a great experience with Mark and Kai as instructors. My wife and I booked a private 2 hour lesson. Never having surfed before (barely ever been in the ocean), my wife was up and surfing after her second wave! We did end up in more of a group situation, but we got more than enough 1:1 coaching and it in fact was fun to go out with other beginners. Also note that the actual surfing was probably 1.5 of the two hours, including transportation, registration, safety briefing, on-land instruction- but honestly, that was more than enough. Mark and Kai offered to try and get me "one more wave!" but by then we were exhausted and ready to go in. Big Mahalo!
Great coach

Mark and Alana had our 9 and 17 year old riding waves within minutes of entering the water. My son is hooked on surfing now, they were encouraging and very knowledgeable.

Amazing experience
Stephanie_C, Sep 2023
The one on one personal attention with the instructor can't be beat. Mark did an amazing job going through all of the steps on land before going in the ocean. I got up on the third try and caught a good amount of waves after that. Highly recommend.
Response from Host, Oct 2023

My daughter has a great time learning how to surf and her instructor was fantastic. My only regret is that I forgot to go back and get the picture that they took of her. 😞
