Our instructor, Steve, was excellent. He was kind and patient with us. He taught all the necessary skills in an easy to understand and engaging way. One member of our family who struggled with surfing came out of the water happy and smiling. He had a great time even though it was very hard for him. I highly recommend this business and Steve in particular.

At 73, this was a challenge. My husband opted out, so my daughter and I and her fella` did lesson. It was my first time and their second. They said lesson was much more instructive than their first time, so they did much better. It was exhausting, but in a good way.

My girlfriend and I booked the group lesson package the day we landed in Kona. We decided to make it the last thing we did before leaving the island. Through the week we talked her brother and his son into going aswell! When we showed up the day of the lesson even though we weren’t in the same groups (because we didn’t book together) our instructors kept us close together so we could all experience it together. Our instructor Van was Awesome! He knew what he was doing, was friendly and was great at keeping track of everyone. He even caught a wave or two to show us how it was done. We all had a great time, and m I would recommend this for any skill level!! It is very casual, the instructors are good at gauging how well you pick things and moving you to different areas so you never get board.... or feel like you are in too deep!! Puns intended 🏄

Awesome experience. Our instructors Bill and Joe were amazing. The did a great job of providing instructions on land and critiquing our technique. By the end of the lesson my wife and I were each able to catch a wave on our own. Highly recommend this company.

We had so much fun. Everyone was kind and supportive with teaching a couple of adult first time surfers. We are now all in love with surfing and can’t wait to go again

Caught a bunch of waves 🌊🏄 The staff was amazing! It wasn’t an excellent surf day but Matt and the other instructors gave us great tips on our form and gave my wife and I the pushes needed to catch several waves! I’m usually a klutz at stuff like this but I had a fantastic time!

As "experienced beginners" we were looking for something very chill, yet not geared towards total beginners (although this school accommodated those as well). We were assigned a wonderful instructor (Matt) who was patient with me and helpful to my husband (who has more experience than I do). The environment was very relaxed and laid back, and the semi-private nature of the class ensured that we got personalized attention. We would definitely recommend this surf school and would love to return the next time we are on the big island.

My fiancee and I had both taken a surfing lesson before, but were beginners for all intents and purposes. We'd also never surfed on a reef before, which was kinda different.

Corey did a great job of helping us and we both caught a bunch of waves. He gave us a lot of good advice and we felt much more confident by the end of the lesson. This is definitely a fun thing to do and a good place to do it.

I took my husband for the semi-private surf lesson on his birthday in late September 2019. We were in a group of 4. My husband got up on his first try ! Chris was super helpful and my husband said it was one of the highlights from our trip to the Big Island. We didn't know at the time (because I didn't read) but they were taking photos of us. It was such a fun surprise, and there were some really great pictures. You can purchase them; ours were available the next day !
