Catching some Waves!

Suzy and Matt made our surf lessons into an unforgettable experience. Matt’s knowledge of the waves, his patience and genuine passion for the sport created an atmosphere of joy, fun and accomplishment. I highly recommend booking surf lessons through Suzy!!

Great Surfing Lessons On The North Shore
Brian_G, Dec 2023
We enjoyed the afternoon surfing at Pua’ena Point State Park on longboards with Suzy’s brother. It was a great time spent out there learning and getting up. We got up about 12-15 times. Very safe area with small 4-6 foot waves to learn on. Surfboards and upper body rash guards were provided. You do indeed get very tired in the shoulders having to paddle a lot. We enjoyed the time out there and would do it again.
Highly recommend this trip highlight

We had a fantastic time surfing with Suzy. She and her team are great cheerleaders and teachers. We highly recommend!
Don’t forget to put on sunscreen though

Such great teachers!
Kristen_C, Sep 2023
Andy and Matt were amazing teachers and were fantastic with my 3 children. My kids were up on their surfboards and having the time of their lives within 30 mins :) My husband and I had a blast as well! Suzy was delightful and gave us great ideas for additional things to do on the North Shore. And Luna (the dog) was just the sweetest. Thank you for such a wonderful, memorable experience that we’ll remember forever!
Well worth the knowledge!
Agnes_K, Sep 2023
Great lessons for first timers! Andy was our instructor. Very cool personality, but also got great knowledge for the basics of surfing from him. And felt safe the whole time. Made changes to surf location due to better conditions, and it went well!
Riding waves in Hawaii
Adam_S, Sep 2023
This was such a cool experience. We surfed in Hawaii!!! Messages received Day before to organise everything. Meeting Andy was easy and he was so good with my wife and I. In no time we were catching waves. Also great it was just the 2 of us so all the focus was on our needs. A must whilst in Oahu

Great lessons from encouraging instructors on a beautiful beach. A huge bonus was surfing among turtles!
Highly recommend!!
Kassadee_H, Apr 2023
Sunset Suzy provided us the best surfing experience. It was our first time, but we picked up pretty quick! We were able to catch multiple waves. We did the 2 hour lessons and that was plenty! We are both physically active people and we were exhausted by the end of it! Suzy had great communication with us prior to the lesson!
Sunset Suzy and Team Are The Best!
