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

My husband and I traveled to Hawaii for our honeymoon and of all the amazing activities we did, this was our favorite! 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.

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!
