Had a great time surfing. Jason, our instructor, is really patient and cool catching every waves. At first, we had to meet up at the Halei'wa Beach Park then drive down the road trying to find good waves. Then we had to head back to the Halei'wa Beach Park because the waves on the other side are much bigger. Recommend... More

Went on an anniversary trip to Oahu in late September with my girlfriend. We decided that we would give surfing a shot. However, we wanted to avoid Waikiki where we were staying, and boy were we glad that we did. Looked up Button's Surf School on Yelp and they were able to offer us a great two for one deal.... More

My wife and I went out to surf for the first time ever, and with the instruction, location, and time we had in the water, we felt comfortable on the board. My wife was able to stand on her first try ever. Great instructor, extremely friendly, and we wish we had more time in our stay so that we could... More

They made it easier than I thought it would be. Loads of fun! Great for a beginner! They had a tent set up on the beach and as soon as we got there we were given rash guards and then off the boards for a land lesson. We got to practice a few times with positions as the instructor gave... More

Buttons Surf School was totally awesome! Super chill, but still professional. Husband and I purchased a Groupon - 90 minute basic surf lesson for two on Friday morning. I called BSS Friday afternoon to see if they had any openings for the following day. The sweet girl who answered the phone said she didn't have anything, but would try calling... More

Everyone was really friendly and helpful, we had a great time! The water was a little shallow so we both got a few cuts on our feet, but other than that it was a blast!

Truly an unforgettable experience. This was my first time even touching a surfboard, and Noho made sure to tailor the surf session around my abilities. We started with a land lesson before hitting the waters. After a few attempts and a lot of feedback, I was able to start consistently catching the waves and had the biggest grin on my... More

Buttons' crew looked after my kids so well! They were attentive, patient, and passionate about the true joy of surfing! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them for young, or young at heart!

We loved our lesson. The school was on time, the equipment was appropriate for the conditions, the coaches were great and my kids loved it too, we saw turtles floating around us, the water was warm and everyone was all smiles. When it is big every where else, Puena Point, where the surf school is is small enough.
