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.

I live here and my friend came to visit and she wanted to catch some waves! Kona Mike's team were so awesome, they made our first time surfing experience the bomb! I highly recommend Kona Mike's Surf Adventure for the ultimate surf experience on the Big Island! #bigislandmobettah #konamike #supportlocal #goodpeepsgoodtimes

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!!!

We had a great time with Logan as our guide for our first surf experience. Mike and his whole crew did a great job. Thanks to all and recommend it highly.

My buddy and I took our kids surfing on Saturday morning with Mike and his team. we had a semiprivate lesson ($125pp) rather than general lesson ($99). We had three instructors for the 7 of us... great odds. We spent the first 30 minutes with Lauren as she explained the safety parts of the trip and how to get on/off... More

I called around to 3 different shops and liked the vibe of Kona Mike's the best. I signed up for a private lesson, as I have surfed off and on for 15 years and just wanted a local showing me the ropes at a spot I hope to frequent on future trips, as I come here 2x per year. (When... More

We frequent Hawaii once in a while. The last time my kids had surfing lessons, it was not with Kona Mike's but with another company. But the time before that was with Kona Mike's. I'm a neutral party when it comes to surfing so I let my kids decide. Asking them which set of instructors they enjoyed more, and which... More
