Jeff is great, professional with a positive attitude. My daughter loved the lesson, so did I. Highly recommended.
Barry was extremely kind, courteous and, most importantly, patient. Overall an excellent experience! My son and I really felt like we learned some important fundamentals. Highly recommended -- we'll be back the next time we are here!
Jeff is a patient instructor, encouraging with newbies and eager to help us get to standing up on the board. I celebrated my 64th birthday by surfing, despite being overweight and out of shape! If I can surf, so can you. Jeff was great, and I had a great time. He taught me enough in an hour that I can... More
That is what my 11 year old daughter proclaimed after her surf lesson with Jeff from Surfer Bear. As a parent I was completely impressed with the whole deal, from beginning to end. Jeff was on time, friendly, safe and professional. He had the most amazing attitude and inspired my daughter to work hard and try her best, with great... More
My sister and I had been wanting to learn how to surf for the longest time, and finally got the chance to learn in HAWAII. When looking up lessons in Kona, Surfer Bear Hawaii had fantastic reviews so we decided that was the way to go. We were not at all disappointed. With guidance from Barry and Niki, my sister... More
I took a surf lesson with Barry a few weeks ago and it was truly outstanding. I had previously taken surf lessons from two instructors back at home in California and never stood up on a wave. Under Barry's instruction, however, I stood up on countless waves and some of the rides were quite long! I can't describe how thrilling... More
Barry is great! I bought 2 days of surf lessons for my 14yr old nephew. My nephew had no experience surfing, but Barry was very patient and easy going. My nephew had a blast and couldn't wait to return for his second lesson. Barry really made our vacation fantastic! A definite must-do experience.
Aug 1-3 2013: Barry was good about returning cell calls and was prompt and on-time for the lesson (we were the ones who were late). The lesson included one other person, and Barry was even able to split that small group up to accommodate the differing ability levels. He also allowed my boys to rent two boards for a third... More
Pushing clueless tourists into waves and getting them to successfully stand up and ride is no easy task, but Barry, Jeff, and Sam made it happen. I would not call this a "lesson," because it is more of a "surf experience." These guys are there to get you surfing, and that is precisely what they do. We parked next to... More
OMG there are just not words to say how great this experience was for me. We called Surfer Bear at the beginning of our vacation and found out their were no waves. He called us back and kept us up to day on the waves calling us back a couple of times. On June 5th my 20th wedding anniversary I... More
