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

Val and her staff were amazing. We booked surf lessons for my wife, myself and my girls, ages 8, 11 and 13. She had everyone up riding waves. We had a fantastic experience and highly recommend waves for surfing lessons. Couldn't have had a better time. The girls want to go back again and can't wait to surf.

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.
