We gave my 14 year old twins surfing lessons here. We appreciated Lisa who gave us all the information we needed and helped us pick the right kind of lessons convenient to our schedule. Luan was a kind and patient instructor. Gave the kids a wonderful experience, got them up on the surfboards, and watched them in the water. We... More

What a nice operation. Lynn and her son were so friendly and helpful. We paddle boarded 3 rivers in one day. We saw turtles, Jungle, Nēnē and more.

We had 2 days of surfing with Hawaiian Surfing Adventures: one for the guys and one for the girls. Our teacher, Yam, was great! He had all of us up and surfing right away. Hanalei Bay is the perfect place to learn to surf: the waves aren't too big and break near enough to shore that the swim back to... More

Four of us took a lesson on the first day and then rented 4 boards for the entire week. It is Christmas week so the whole island is packed, this place included. But I loved how they were flexible and placed the focus on getting us out on the waves to surf. Some tips: 1. When busy, the cash register... More

My teenage boys and my 10 year old son had never surfed. I arranged a lesson and to my surprise they said "sounds fun". Fun it was. Hanalei Bay is ideal for learning with gentle rolling waves and smooth sandy bottom. We all had a blast and it was highlight of our vacation. The coaches were friendly and a joy... More

We joined Scotty for a surf lesson. My boys had had lessons before, so this was a refresher course for them. The surf shop is very convenient and the folks there are great. We went to Hanalei Beach for lessons. I do believe this is one of the most beautiful, comfortable beaches I have ever been to. No coral to... More

My husband and I signed up for a group lesson and were lucky enough for it to be just us and our instructor Sean. He was very funny and easy to talk to. We had a great lesson and we both got up multiple times. The shop shuttles you down to Hanalei Beach and back after when you are done.... More

Hawaiian Surfing Adventures nailed it providing a GREAT experience for my 16 yr old son. It was his first time surfing and from the 3rd try on he was riding 'tasty waves' on Hanalei Bay
