Our kids wanted to learn to surf, but we waited until our last day in Hawaii. We signed for private lessons, and Sergio made sure the kids had the learning to succeed before they hit the water. They each stood up on the first wave and every one after! They can't wait to try surfing again!!

Surf Hawaii is run by Edison de Paula (director of surf instruction) and Jenni Hernando (stand up paddle instructor and owner of the B&B). Our camp group (1 man and 3 women) was taught alternately by Kelvin Pascua and Edison who are both... More

Surf Hawaii is a small non-descript operation. I met the main guy, Eddison, at his van instead of at a large surf shop. You could not ask for a better personality. He was nice, patient, funny and very encouraging. Definitely go for the one-on-one lessons. I think the other guy's name is Calvin, but I didn't see him. Eddison had... More

Not only that but they are certified oceanic lifeguards so you know they've got your... More
