My wife and I decided to book Kona Mike on our visit to The Big Island and having seen that almost every single review was"Excellent" we hardly bothered to look at other companies. We were both trying surfing for the first time and so we wanted to book someone who was rated very highly. We booked a semi-private lesson which... More

Mike is the best surf teacher on the islands! He taught my 14 yr old twins to surf the 6 footers with confidence within an hour! He spent time explaining how to read the waves, how to understand other surfers, how to respect the water, the sport, and each other.

Went with my wife on our honeymoon to experience surfing as beginners. We both ride a few waves in and were very surprised. Fantastic friendly staff! Photographer takes pictures while you surf.

One of the activities I was dying to do in Hawaii was to take surf lessons. Our resort concierge recommended Mike's. Right from the start they were awesome. From checking in to riding the waves and then packing it in, every person was supportive and amazing. They made me feel comfortable right from the start and were very encouraging. It... More

My family and I had a great time surfing. We were all beginners and the instructors were very patient and helpful in many ways. We were able to have a lot of fun even though we surfed for the first time. They had two instructors for a group of 5 which gave felt like semi private lessons.

Our boys did a group package of three lessons with Kona Mikes. They had three great days! They had a number of different instructors and they were all great!! By the end of the third day all three of our boys were getting up on their own with no extra push. The boys loved every minute they had shredding the... More

This place is awesome!!! Lauren gave a great overview of "how to" surf and our young surf instructor (Charlie Boy) was energetic, positive and enthusiastic. My Nephew (13 years old) and I had a blast. I am 44 and this was my first and very successful time trying my hand at surfing - Thanks Kona Mike's!!!
