Booked a group surf lesson for me and my wife. Nobody booked at the same time so it ended up being a private lesson. We had our own instructor Henry who was great. We had our own powerboat and captain to take us to the break and wait for us the entire lesson. The instruction and help surfing was great.... More

Aloha Paul, Thank you for reviewing your surf lesson with Hawaiian Surf Adventures. Every sport has its risks and one of the risks of surfing is bumps, bruises and cuts. We do offer protective clothing; reef shoes and rash guards but we do not force anyone to wear this gear if they choose not to. We always keep a first... More

My daughter took surfing lessons from Nobi (?spelling) and Stacey accompanied them to take photographs. Unlike most surfing lessons that originate from the beach, they took her 1/2 mile out to get better waves. She thoroughly enjoyed it and they were very patient with her. They even taught her how to drive the boat back to the harbor. Wonderful people.... More

We booked the double hull canoe tour for our extended family of six. There was 20 minutes of instruction on land before we got into the canoes and paddled out. Our guide Alyssa was fantastic. She was knowledgeable, helpful and courteous, and made us completely at ease. She told us stories of the Hawaiian islands and culture like she was... More

As part of their Christmas in Hawaii, I bought surf lessons my for my 10 and 12 year old grandkids. Hawaiian Surf Adventures was perfect. Their instructor was fun, patient, and they had a blast.

Lyssa was a great instructor and was incredibly patient trying to nurture us through our "kayak memory" based skills. The Maunalua Bay inlet was a great starter area shielded for the most part against the wind which is not your friend when you are trying to learn stand up paddle boarding. It was a great experience for my wife and... More

My husband and I had a Stand Up Paddleboard lesson. Even though I have been paddleboarding before, the SUP lesson was very informative and I learned several new pointers. I hope I spell his name correctly, Nubie, was very knowledgeable about the history of the island. We enjoyed the SUP lesson a lot. Thanks Nubie for the great SUP lesson.
