Super friendly staff and professional. We booked a privet lessen to our two sons (ages 9 and 11 years old) that know how to surf. The instructor was very professional and taught them in 2 hours a lot of new thinks.

Super friendly staff, great prices and very easy to rent a paddleboard for three hours. They even lent me a rash guard and car straps without any extra charge. Would highly recommend.

My wife and I walked into the royal surf academy while eating shave ice. The atmosphere was laid back but professional. They were up front with their prices and didn't pressure us at all. I came back a day later and was recognized and welcomed back. We chose the first lesson of the day at 7:45am. Dreyson got us all our gear and after a short walk to the beach, gave us a fantastic overview of how to do things. His confidence in us and his non stop smile gave us all the motivation we needed to get in the water and get surfing. I won't give away his techniques but we were both up the first time. After 2.5 hours on the waves we came in to review our photos. At $20 they are a great memory and a good laugh. The best thing is seeing how hard we are concentrating while Dreyson beams with pride in the background. With royal academy you'll be channeling your inner DUKE in no time. Till we see you again, Aloha!

I would highly recommend this surf class for anyone who wants to have a blast learning to do one of the most fun activities in Hawaii with the best instructors out there. Our teacher, Josh, was absolutely awesome. Friendly, knowledgeable, and and an excellent instructor. Top notch 5 star experience

My husband and I, who had never set foot on a surf board in our lives, took several semi-private lessons with the Royal Hawaiian Surf Academy and we were surfing in no time at all! They provide all the gear, and the instructors are friendly and professional. We had such a great time that we went back twice after the fist lesson. Not the cheapest but well Worth it!
