It was a great experience. The instructors were very polite, laid back, helpful and just overall good guys. We talked for a good amount of time and joked about a number of things. I really felt like my money was well spent. I took the #52 Bus from Honolulu all the way to Haleiwa. It was about 90minutes from Ala... More

I did a beginner's surf lesson and my husband did stand-up paddle boarding. The instructors were great for both, informative and patient and very relaxed. A brilliant experience all round.

We scheduled a Stand-up Paddle lesson for first thing in the morning. Everything was smooth and our instructor, Heath, was fantastic. He made us feel comfortable on the water and we ended up following up with surf lessons after the Stand-up Paddle board lesson. My wife is not a strong swimmer and she felt safe in the water with Heath... More

Marshall was our instructor and helped both my wife and I get up on the modest waves within minutes despite our lack of experience (wife1st time, my 2nd) . He was very patient and helpful when we were making mistakes. We did the couples session which I would recommend for any duo. Can't wait to do this again!!!!

We had an awesome time this morning with Alex! We booked our surf lesson for Saturday, the 24th. My boyfriend had hurt his side the day before paddle boarding, so we had to reschedule. I was a little nervous about doing it because usually people are pretty rigid/not too nice about rescheduling things like this. When I called, they were... More

Brought my children and grandchildren for their first surf experiene. The grandchildren, 10 and 14, are weak swimmers. No problem. The instructors were patient and comforting. It was clear to both youngsters that these guys had their backs. And they did, for the whole two hours. Everyone got up, rode many waves and came away with memories to last a... More

My family had the best time learning to surf with Uncle Bryans team in Haleiwa. Skylar and Cameron were our instructors - they looked after us (and especially my 8yr old). We all caught alot of waves and had the best time. My son couldn't stop smiling all day. Perhaps the best thing we did on our holiday (which is... More

One of my son's dreams was to surf in Hawaii and the Suratt team sure did their part in making that possible! Kaloni had us out surfing right away with great explanations of board and wave theory. We had so much fun we came back 2 days later for a repeat and the Suratt's were able to fit us in.... More

Absolutely had a blast with our instructor Bobby. He had my wife and I surfing our first wave on our first try. After our lesson was over Uncle Bryan went and picked some PuKiniKini flowers for my wife and I and let me make her her own Lei. It was the highlight of our honeymoon!
