Wanted to get the full north shore experience so set up a family lesson with Matt. Very easy to hook up with for the lesson but a bit tough to find the little beach he surfs out of. perfect size waves for our beginner family. Matt was able to get my 9 and 12 year old boys and 14 year... More

Matt was a great teacher. We had surfed before, but found that it is always easier and safer to have a guide go with us the first time to show us the ins and outs of that particular surf spot. He was easy going and very helpful. We would definitely choose to use him again.

My family of 2 adults and 2 children under 12 did a surf lesson with Blue Rush Surf School. You can either book direct with Matt or ask for a lesson if visiting the North Shore on the Surf Bus. This was such a positive experience for all of us and I would like to take this opportunity to thank... More

Don't miss learning to surf from Blue Rush Surf School. My 10 and 15 year old daughters loved working with Matt! His personality/teaching style was the key to my girls having such an amazingly positive experience. If you are a very cautious parent like I am and "over the top" as my children say about safety, know that Matt keeps... More

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
