Had my first ever surfing lesson today. Instructor was Fernando - amazing. Had me up on my first wave. They don't spend too much time out of the water, so all your time is maximized learning how to get up and ride a wave. Highly recommend this place!

My sister and I enjoyed ourselves immensely and found a new interest in the sport of surfing with the help from our wonderful instructor Fernando. He was extremely helpful and was able to correct our mistakes and by the end of the lesson we were doing some basic tricks! There was also a photographer out in the water with us... More

My kids ages 9 and 11 had a fantastic time learning to surf with Fernando. We've been to Hawaii 10 times now, but this is the first trip in which we tried this pastime. We were a little hesitant at first not knowing how safe it would be. Fernando put us at ease and took extra care to ensure that... More

Had an amazing time with Sara from the Waves Hawaii Surf School. My two girls, ages 10 and 13 had the best time learning to surf. Sara was so kind and patient and spent a good amount of time with them ensuring their morning was a memorable one. One of the best days we spent on the island. Thank you... More

I'm so glad that me and my sister went surfing at Waves Hawaii! My sister is 15 and I'm 10. We were both up surfing on our first try. Our instructor was Brooks. He was really funny and treated me like his little sister. He was very easy to talk to and helpful in every way! When we were out... More

I had a little bit of experience surfing on my own prior to my lesson with Waves, but just 4 hours of being out there improved my ability immensely. My instructor Fernando was fantastic and really helpful. Prior to going out, he looked at the surf report website with webcams to see which beach had the best waves and we... More

My 10 year old daughter and I signed up for a semi-private 2hr lesson with waves instructor Brooks today and it was nothing short of fantastic. The weather was perfect, and the waves were great for first timers. Everything was taken care of at check in including rash guards, shoes, advice regarding glasses/gopros, sun screen. Brooks did a safety briefing... More

This was my teenage daughter's second time surfing. Her lesson with Brooks was great. He was very nice, funny, and quickly put her at ease. Brooks was a really good teacher. He had my daughter up surfing in no time. The waves at Kalama beach park were perfect - not too big yet big enough to allow for relatively long... More

We had great day with the team at Waves Surf School in Kihei. Our group, with 4 adults and 4 kids ages 7,9,9, and 14 did both surfing and stand up paddleboarding in Kihei. Originally, 3 adults did SUP and everyone else surfed, but about an hour into the lesson, we were able to mix it up so everyone was... More

This is a venue that a 14, 12, and 7 year old as well as Mom and Dad (without long term injury) can enjoy. These guys were awesome. You can really tell the people that enjoy what they do. They were able to challenge my nimble gymnasts (they ended up surfing backwards...showoffs), give safe personal care to my 7 year... More
