The instructors are great at adapting to not only the group but the conditions as they change. Jax did an amazing job of giving us all pointers and being certain we were all comfortable and having fun which isn't easy when the age range was 11-42. Would do it again tomorrow if I could. Big thanks to Jax and Olly... More

This was the highlight of the trip for us - not only were the instructors superb (thanks Marcus and skylar) but the photos were an added bonus for the parents!! Thanks for providing a safe and fun environment for the kids who definitely want to continue their surfing!!

Our family stayed at the North Shore, Oahu this past April (2015). My children (ages 11-18) thoroughly enjoyed their surf lesson. The entire staff was extremely hospitable. Their instructor made the lesson fun and gave all four of them superb individualized attention. The photos they offer after the lesson are excellent and a must! Highly recommend Uncle Bryan and his... More

These guys do a fantastic job making your experience with SUP or surfing a pleasant time. Every visit has been perfect. I've also noticed that the staff helps and informs visitors who aren't even doing business with them. Jim Hazen is the best of the best. You can tell he finds happiness helping others. If the family goes out hang... More

Our weeklong trip to oahu...17 & 10 year old boys...absolutely LOVED it! The instructors spent a few minutes on the beach gauging every es abilities, stance & direction following, then without any crazy delays, like the other class we were watching nearby, they were in the water. Rash guards, sunblock, leashed & boarded...first wave, up & enjoying the ride! Both... More

Our son and his best friends, both 15, were up in minutes and had a great time. They got very individualized attention and we paid for the photos, which were fantastic. We did numerous activities during a week on Oahu and a week in Kona. This was their favorite and the guys at the school were just great with them... More

This was by far the best experience I have had in my vacation at Hawaii. Lisa was more than helpful as we were coordinating a proper time to schedule my lesson. She replied to all my emails in a timely manner. My instructor Kalani provided excellent advice and feedback through the entire two hours. His encouragement, hard work, and patience... More
