Had a super surf lesson with these guys. I appreciate that they pick the best condition and beach for the day so that we could avoid the surfboard parking lot outside the Sheraton (crowded and a little dangerous with all those boards floating around). My 6 year old daughter got an instructor to herself and was getting up on her... More

Nefi has the best prices on the island. Everyone was up and surfing within 20 minutes, never having surfed before. He knows surfing, and he knows the beaches, we met at a less known beach - the only beach I saw on the island without rocks, great for learning to surf.

Lefi (the owner) of the school is fabulous. So great with kids. Had 2 other helpers to expedite learning in the surf. Always interacting to focus on what needed to be done to get up on the board and "ride the wave" . Loved their beach dogs Bubba and Bella. All 5 members of my family surfed like they were... More

Lefi (owner) was great! 2 instructors for 4 students, got us all up and surfing. $40 for 90 minutes, plus more free time. Bring your camera, he'll shoot pics of you.
