My recent experience at the Turtle Bay Resort was exceptional because my friend Lisa and I took 3 lessons with Timmy L! Tim and Eric, Bobby, Marion and Chandler were so nice to a couple of ladies in their 60 ' s who really wanted to learn how to surf for the first time. We felt so well taken care... More

Located inside the Park Shore Hotel and right across from the beach, the staff are great! Years of experience and a load of patience. The staff are very good working with many different nationalities and have many different choices from one on one to group classes. Many packages to choose from and take you to locations that are not packed... More

We truly had a great time, this was our 10 year old grandsons dream of becoming a surfer, and Timmy did an awesome job of making sure of this. Everyone at the North Shore location was friendly and made sure we felt good about letting our grandson be out in the water without us. Thanks for helping us give this... More

We were picked-up at our hotel by very friendly hawaiian guy but when we came to the store there were 2 guys sitting and one lady. They didnΒ΄t even say hi - they just looked so annoyed that they had to be there. The lady was friendly though. Surfing was fun - they provided us with all the equipment, they... More

As much as we were looking forward to this part of our holiday my cousin and I were very disappointed with the service we received from this company. Firstly they told us our reservation hadn't been received when we had vouchers that said otherwise, then they charged us again to do a lesson that we had already paid for. The... More

Charged for another full hour when we came in a little late. Much better value for money at other shops. Service terrible.

Went surfing 3 times with my whole family. We had Bruno, Nick, Kira and Rocky. My kids had the best time. The instructors take safety very importantly which I really appreciate when taking out 5, 8 and 10 year old children. My children had the best time. Each really bonded with their instructors; who also seemed to truly care about... More

What a blast! My wife was hesitant about surfing and anxious to try it. The instructors were really awesome...and we had a blast. My wife was actually better than me! She was really nervous at first, but by the end of our lesson she was kicking butt! We had a semi private lesson which is basically just the two of... More
