I asked my girls what they liked the most about our spring break vacation and they both said "our surf lessons ". You had some stiff competition with manta rays, dolphins and whales. Logan was a great teacher. The girls were up surfing right away. When we come back, you'll have a couple repeat customers.

Kona Mike's is the BEST! Lauren was so accommodating, Mike took care to let us know the weather was a little iffy before we cam, but by the time we showed up the wind had died down and we had a wonderful lesson. Logan is a terrific, patient, knowledgeable and safe teacher and 'pusher'. My son got up on the... More

Love, love, loved the Kona Mike surf adventure. Both my 16-year-old son and 52-year-old husband were first timers. They got up, stayed up, and had a blast doing it. Great!

Mike himself gave us a 3-person private lesson. I was doubtful that I'd be able to surf at all without instantly faceplanting, but with the tutorial Lauren gave us at the hut in the Alii Marketplace, Mike's guidance, and a beautiful day, I was standing up instantly. The whole crew is terribly friendly and helpful. I don't think a beginner... More

My daughter, Savannah had a great time surfing with instructors Scottie & Craig. She was able to ride a lot of waves. The first day she came out of the water early as her arms were really tired, but she went back out for the second day. Savannah has taken lessons from several different schools, but she really liked the... More

Fuzzy and Logan were the surf instructors that day and they were both really nice. We were specifically paired up with Logan and he was an awesome instructor! He really paid attention to us and the things we... More

I have always wanted to learn to surf. When my husband earned a trip to Hawaii with work. I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Mike's came highly recommended by some friends who had trained with Logan. I was taught by Mike. It could not have been a more beautiful day. Mike makes it totally relaxing and not intimidating...

Kona Mike and Fuzzy are absolutely amazing. At 43 I decided I wanted to take a surfing lesson and I'm glad I chose Kona Mike's. Fuzzy was patient and has a great sense of humor. He answered my questions and most importantly he kept me safe. I highly recommend them, it was worth every penny.
