My two kids had a lesson from Jay and both kids rated the experience 5 stars! The kids are 15 and 11, and have never surfed before. Yet Jay worked with them over the full 2 hours and they were able to ride several waves, looked pretty good doing it, and had lots of fun in the learning process. Jay... More

Four members of my family (two daughters, son-in-law and granddaughter) took lessons at Kona Surf Company in 2013 and all surfed within the 2-hour lesson. July 2014 one daughter and granddaughter returned for another lesson. During this time my son-in-law and I rented two boards to surf. Both years, I observed that Dom and his instructors are very attentive to... More

Took surfing lessons at Kahalu'u Beach with Kona Surf. Teen (13) daughter has surfed before (4 times on Oregon coast), but I (65) had never been on a board. Our instructor, Austin, worked with us both to teach basic techniques (paddling, standing up, 'catching' the wave) and also water safety and etiquette. These last two items are important because the... More

My daughter and I took a surf lesson from Dom and were both able to ride a few waves! My husband and son rented boards, and photographer Ej got a great pic of all four of us riding the same wave. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Thanks Kona Surf Company for a great day!

My friend and I had Jay as an instructor. He was amazing. We were both beginners and managed to surf a few waves. I was even able to lay back down on the board after. I would recommend these guys any day. Good luck on the new shop guys!

My 16 year old daughter and her friend did a semi-private lesson with Jay and it was awesome. They got up right away and rode lots of waves. He always knew where both girls were and was super excited, supportive and enthusiastic. Great job Jay. We have awesome videos.

This place is amazing! The staff is so helpful, it's a beautiful beach that often has turtles there. Dom our instructor was great, he first had orientation, made us feel prepared and safe then got us out on the water and we caught our first waves. This is the place for everyone young and old to learn to surf. We... More

During my stay I had two lessons with Kona Surf Company, and Austin was my instructor. My first group lesson was with one other person, and both of us were shortly up and riding. I came back for the second lesson because Austin was great at teaching and diagnosing my issues and getting me surfing right. My second "group" lesson... More

Dom is amazing!!! A friend and I grew up on the beach and never learned how to surf. We finally went to a lesson and we were instantly hooked, the team gets you on the wave and helps you in engaging on being one with the wave. These guys are the ones to learn from, they're awesome!
