My family of 4 (with two kids 12 and 9) had never surfed before. From the moment we walked up we felt at ease. Everyone from Waves was so nice. They had everything we needed. We had Eddie as our instructor, and he was fantastic. So patient with my kids ( and mom and dad!), stayed in the water with... More

We spent 2 hours and quickly learned how to stay on the surf. We were lucky with the waves as the next days were very calm. Were not so lucky with the instructor as she seems to be bored to teach. Also the price is quite expensive with hundred of people learning at the same place.

Look for Eddie, a nice bilingual (Portuguese / English) instructor. They don't spend much time in the ground and jumped in the water after 10 minutes, increasing the time for hands-on learning.

staff was very welcoming, on time and had everything I needed - all I had to do is show up in a bathing suit. The teaching staff are very encouraging, giving direct and clear instruction after each wave. I could feel myself improving with each try. Even her professional videographer offered feedback as I surfed past him. It was well... More

We had a free morning so we thought the kids might like to try surfing. They don't even have experience on a skate board, so we weren't sure how this would go. But it was fantastic! Their instructor was Eddie, and he was great. Gave them a short lesson on land about how to stand up on the board, and... More

We made our reservations through our concierge at the Ho'olei Villas for our two boys, both 11 years old. We were picked up directly from our villa's clubhouse area. Their instructor was a professional surfer from Brazil, and he was amazing! He showed incredible patience with our boys, and his true love of the sport showed! My husband was able... More

I had SO much fun!! Eddie was my instructor and he was incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and encouraging. This was my first time surfing and he offered specific coaching tips that helped me get up on my board countless times. Not only did I feel a sense of accomplishment, but I had a blast the entire two hours. I'd highly recommend... More
