Did both a paddle boarding and surf lesson here. Enjoyed both very much. Paddle boarding is in calm waters. For surfing you take a boat out to the reef and catch the waves there. The instructors were good. would join another tour if i was in the area again. Fun day out.

We recently visited Hawaiin Surf Adventures for a double canoe trip. This was our family's first trip to Hawaii although I had visited 25 years ago to paddle the Molakai canoe race. I really wanted my family to have an opportunity to paddle an outrigger as they aren't that easy to come by in Sydney. Our guide Lyssa (no A)... More

We used a 50% off coupon from travelzoo for our family of four. Sasha gave us a great lesson and we were all able to get up on our first try. We continued paddle boarding for about another hour and a half, switching boards between our group and instructor. We found out that the smaller boards go fast but are... More

Literally a private lesson, paid for a group lesson with my friend. The company instructs groups up to 6 people. It was just the two of us. Easy going and nice instructor, very informative and helpful throughout. Our session was a bit windy, but very fun and great workout. Would recommend the company and go back again!

My daughter and I had our first Stand Up Paddleboard experience with Hawaiian surf Adventures last week. we could not have asked for a better instructor. Noby was unbelievably patient and informative. I was very nervous, he did an amazing job of building my confidence and showing me that I could stand up on the board. Super fun, highly recommended.

Have gone out with these folks before and had a good experience. This one was just weird and sad. I wanted to bring a visitor for a lesson where they try to cater to the particular skill level of the individual. From the very beginning there were signs that this was not going to be any good. 1st we were... More

Without a doubt the best way to learn to surf. You get ferried by boat to a virtually secluded break well away from the shore. The instructor puts you in the perfect position to catch a wave & even gives you a shove at just the right time. Cowabunga!! The instructors are very friendly & helpful throughout the lesson.

Lisa is a great guide. Before heading out, we had simple instructions on how to paddle in unison. It was a workout but not overly exhausting. We paddled out about 30mins where we could go overboard and swim. Lisa gave us a little background history of how the islands where formed...how the hawaiians read the weather.....hang loose gesture...etc. The tour... More
