We took one of the two-hour lessons and had a blast. My girlfriend and I had been surfing maybe 3-4 times before we had our lesson with Carol. She did a great job of explaining the currents around the spot we surfed. She was personable and patient. Most importantly she did a good job of navigating the other groups learning... More

Carol and Alexis were great! Lesson on the beach before getting in the water and getting to experience what it's like to surf. They were super friendly and made sure that you had an awesome time. We got some great pictures too! They were accommodating and helpful. Plus, you can't beat a surfing lesson on a beautiful pristine beach on... More

NSSG staff are great! I booked an hour lesson for the noon time, but ended up switching to the 9 AM time. This time was perfect as it was easy to find parking and the beach wasn't crowded. Carol was great and helped me to get up on almost every wave! She was very patient and knowledgeable. I am hooked!... More

I am paddling...Carol says my wave is coming...She says I can do it, just remember to lean forward, I paddle more and I am up! I am actually surfing! The impossible happens. I had tried surfing before but I never got to catch a wave (Embarrassing for someone who grew up by the shore.) Before we went in the water,... More

Carol was fantastic. We showed up 15 minutes late and instead of going until the time we original had planned (9 till 10), she stayed for the 15 minutes we missed plus about 15-20 more! She was an amazing instructor and was very patient with us the whole time. We'll definitely be getting more lessons from her the next time... More

Our family booked a one hour surf lesson with North Shore Surf Girls and the experience ended up being a highlight of our vacation. I initially chose NSSG because they are woman owned (Carol was the 1st woman to compete in the Pipeline competition) and they have raving reviews. I am so glad we did! Both Carol and Gina were...

I love North Shore Surf Girls! We have been coming to Hawaii for over 12 years and we have used other companies in the past, but for the last few years, I have been using North Shore Surf Girls for my nieces and nephews. We love the attention each of us receives from the instructors and attention to details. The... More

Our family of 3 joined a younger couple working with Carol and Matt to learn to surf for the first time. The water was deep, the waves were a bit choppy due to the recent hurricane and none of us had ever done it before, but Carol and Matt got us up on our boards and surfing in no time.... More

I searched many different surf schools in oahu and decided on this one because of what I had read about their instructors and carol specifically. We also wanted to be up at the north shore area and chuns beach where the lessons were held was beautiful and not crowded. Carol put 110 percent in to the lesson and helping my... More
