Epic Experience. Kona MIke, Lahiki & Fuzzy did a great job. Lahiki did an awesome job with my 8 year old daughter on a tandem board. My 10 year old son and I got up several times with Kona Mike's great instruction. Highly recommend.

My two brothers, my 12 year old nephew and I all went out for the first time on a semi-private lesson with Fuzzy, Dwayne and Sean. These guys were fun, upbeat, patient and just a good time to hang out with! Mike gave us an easy straightforward demo at the surf shop before we headed out with the guys and... More

My two sons (12 & 11) and me (Dad) took a semi-private lesson. A no-show from another party meant we got the benefit of both Sean and Logan for the full two hours. They were both great in helping us novices stand up, surf and have an awesome time! Totally recommend them!

We had an awesome experience with Mike and his crew. We highly recommend the semi-private lesson. We all had such a great experience that we returned a couple days later for more surfing. Mike does a great job from start to finish, he is great with kids and is always making sure everyone is safe and having fun. I have... More

OK. I had to try it! I am a grandma and a few weeks shy of 67 years old. I met Mike at the beach, got the scoop and signed up. It was fantastic. Kona Mike's staff were all kind, friendly, skilled and helpful. Hey, I did it, and have pictures to prove it.

My daughter and I had semi-private lessons with Logan. Neither of us had been surfing before. We had a blast. Logan really paid attention to what we were doing (right and wrong) and got us surfing. It was a highlight of our vacation. Thanks, Logan! I have to agree with another reviewer. This was physically grueling. My shoulders were tired... More

My daughters (age 13 and 16) had never been surfing and were a little nervous. All the staff was friendly and super helpful. Shaun was an excellent instructor and in no time they were up and having the greatest time. They are now hooked and want us to continue lessons and trips to the coast here in CA. Thanks to... More

I'd never surfed but within about 15 minutes, I was standing on the board. Logan was great and even stayed about 10-15 minutes after the lesson because he wanted to help me catch a final big wave. Overall, it was absolutely worth the cost of a private lesson! One more thing: All that paddling is hard on the shoulder muscles.

Semi-private lesson -- two kids w/one instructor. Fuzzy was the best! Well-organized and efficient operation...no wasted time. Great instruction had them surfing in on time. The bay used for the lessons is perfect -- great waves for learning and excellent photo-ops for moms and dads. The only issue was finding the "shop." The tent is located in the Ali'i Gardens... More
