My surf instructor was Rafael, he was funny and a really good instructor. I surfed a lot of waves and took the steps from being a seasoned beginner to becoming an intermediate surfer with the great tips and help that Rafael gave. Overall an amazing experience.

Took my two kids, 6 & 9 and my friend's 9 & 11 year old's to surf. Let's just say the whole experience was "awesome" and that's just from the kids! Keith took out the 3 girls while Talvi took out my 6 year old son. All the kids were able to surf! My 9 year old daughter was hesitate... More

My 9 year old daughter was paired up with Talvi and my 7 year old son was paired with Luke. We returned home from our 2 week vacation from Maui. Watching the show called storm surfers....my daughter starts describing terms for how certain waves break. We are just amazed that she did not only learn how to surf but she... More

My daughter (13) took several surfing lessons while on vacation in Hawaii and goofy foot surf school was the best school by far. Awesome instructors, family friendly, great location! They offer group, semi private and private lessons. They even have a surf camp for all ages! If you really want to learn how to surf, I highly recommend them!

Goofy Foot is an awesome place to learn how to surf! We are from Idaho and even we learned how to surf! Mark was our instructor and he was fantastic! The lesson started out pretty rough for me and my 13 year old brother stood up his first time (like a pro)... but Mark saw that I was having trouble... More

I took my 11 boy and 13 girl for first ever lesson. The instructor was a little pushy for my daughter but they both got up right away. The place is so crowded that it really took away from both my kids enjoyment. Overall decent experience but would find a place less crowded next time.

Just finished our 2 hr private lesson with Fabio! So nice and a great teacher!! My mom and I both stood up our first try after great explanation! I definitely recommend a privet lesson..it's worth the extra money for the attention you get and you get way more passes than in a group of 5 which of course equals way... More

Our family of 4 enjoyed a wonderful morning learning to surf with Goofy Foot. We have a 7 year old who did a private lesson with Rafael, and our older son, age 10, along with my husband and myself did a semi-private lesson with Mark. We all got up on our boards multiple times and had a blast! Rafael did... More

I researched all the top beach surfing recommendations throughout the island over a number of days and finally came to Goofy Foot, nestled in a quaint little area (505) hidden behind buildings. I was nervous about signing up my three children as their first experience of surfing were in the hands of instructors who had the daunting task of handling... More

Whole family went for the first surfing experience. We all enjoyed it, while kids loved it. Luke was a great instructor and I can recommend him. We all managed to surf after only one lesson! Recommended!
