Matt was awesome, with his guidance I was able to I pop up first time! He definitely makes sure you're ready and makes sure you know how to stand, ride and fall to prevent injury. After you get the technique down, he usually has boards available for rent in case you're not too tired from your lesson, but it is... More

The lesson was great, and they didn't waste any time. They got the kids up and surfing, in no time. There was also a freelance photographer hanging out who has great action shots (he'll sell you). I would definitely recommend them to you, and use them again ourselves!

Blue Rush Surf School was amazing from the get-go. After making arrangements with Matt over the phone, he texted me with location and time which was very helpful when making my way to the North Shore. He let me know how the conditions were so I could make an informed decision about when to go, which I really appreciated. After... More

This review is a bit late, but our family travelled to Oahu, Hawaii in April 2014. My husband and I had wanted to take surf lessons but they were all so expensive. In the end we found an excellent living social deal for Blue Rush Surf School. We got a bit lost trying to find the surf spot (Puanea Point)... More

First time surfing? That's no problem if your riding the waves of the North Shore with surf instructors Matt and Brock. My family and I have never been surfing before so being able to experience our first time with Matt was great. We all had a awesome time and would love to do it again, but only if its with... More

We had a group of 13 and had a total blast. Matt, Brock, Mr. Hollywood and Franklin were awesome. Everyone surfed and rode some waves. Ages ranged from 12 to 50. We all learned so much and all are hooked. If you want to surf, YOU MUST CALL MATT. This was the highlight of our trip. The location on the... More

My family, ranging in ages 58-12, all had blast learning to surf with Matt and Brock. The beach was absolutely beautiful and the waves were perfect for beginners. I have to say it was a little more of an upper body workout than we thought it would be! My husband contacted Matt the day before to confirm our reservation and... More

I had an awesome experience surfing on the North Shore. Matt was a great instructor and taught me a ton in just an hour. Would definitely recommend these guys to anyone looking to surf.

Had an absolute ball with Matthew and Raymond a few weeks ago! Stood up on my first wave! The wind had just changed to onshore so the paddling was a bit hard but the boys were never far away and towed us out to the waves when we needed help! Came home and told everyone I'd surfed the north shore... More
