Eddie was a very patient and wonderful instructor! He was able to help make small corrections and we were both upright and riding in no time! Definitely a must do if you are intersted in trying surfing. They are a smaller company, so it felt like a more personal experience.

I took the surf with a local, best thing I did in Hawaii. Eddie is a great guy and a great surfer as well. Cheers!

We were able to book a 10am lesson with Waves one day prior and were so glad that we chose this Surf School. Our Instructor was Toni and we had an amazing time. We were able to get some great waves in and even learned how to turn. She was awesome to talk to, very professional, and even shared our... More

We took the early morning surf lesson with Eddie. Eddie was really good at explaining the techniques and gave pointers throughout. I'm not very coordinated and even I was able to do it. My teenage son caught on quickly so Eddie had him doing 180's and going backwards. It was a casual and laid back environment and Eddie had a... More

Toby was our instructor and she was great. Patient, explained techniques well, was very helpful and took good care of us in the water. Surfing was much easier than I expected, and I think it has to do with the instruction as well.

Our second great lesson with Waves. Perfectly customized surfing lesson for my 10 and 12 year olds. Once they had some basics down and had a few good rides Toni showed them how to switch sides and ride backwards! She was really nice, fun, thorough and professional. My kids had a blast and felt really successful. What more could you... More

We had a large group ranging in age from 6 to 46, and our instructors were FANTASTIC! Everyone in the group got up, and we all had an awesome time.

Toni (our instructor) was awesome! She was very easy going and fun to work with. All of the instructors were very helpful and we had a blast! I would highly recommend booking for 8am (versus later) since our first lesson scheduled for 10am got canceled and we had to rebook for the next day due to high winds. Since high... More
