At Gone Surfing Hawaii, we live the motto, "Less Work / More Surf" because being in the ocean isn't just our job, it's a lifestyle and we love it. Our qualified instructors teach all ages fundamental techniques that can have anyone surfing in no time. So whether you're charging waves for the first time, or taking your skills to the next level, let us bring a little "More Surf" into your life. When you're ready to journey beyond Waikiki, join us for a full day's adventure along the North or East shores exploring surf spots, sights and local foods. Gone Surfing Hawaii is a small, locally owned and operated company. All Our lessons and Tours start on the sand with ocean awareness and safety. Then we get you right into the surf for a rush of wind and waves. No worries, our licensed instructors are trained in first aid and lifeguard CPR. Once in the water, we show you how to read the waves, position your take off, and the etiquette of wave riding. Whether you're a one-on-one type or you prefer fun with friends, our customized lessons and tours are built to make your adventure on the waves one to remember.

First time surfer that took the semi-private option with a friend which was absolutely fantastic! I’m not the greatest lover of beach holidays but still booked this as we could not travel all the way to Waikiki from the UK without trying this! I’m so glad we did as it was one the most enjoyable things I have ever done.... More

We chose this company after ready the fantastic reviews on here and we weren't disappointed! We were on honeymoon and decided to try surfing. Our instructor, Keoni, was really helpful and made us feel comfortable straight away. Both of us managed to stand up within the first couple of attempts and by the end I was riding the waves really... More

My boyfriend and I booked our first ever surfing lesson with Gone Surfing and had a great time. Booking a semi-private lesson online was very straightforward, and the directions to meet the instructor at the beach were clear. They're located on the beach outside the Outrigger Reef hotel. We met our instructor, Theo, for our 10.30 lesson. He was friendly... More

Great instructors. Felt totally comfortable sending the kids out with the guys. All in our group were up on their boards in no time.

My surfing experience with Gone Surfing was absolutely phenomenal. I had never been surfing, but my instructors got me up on my first wave! They were encouraging, supportive, and very professional. I was impressed by the website but even more so when I actually experienced my first surf session with them. I love that the company was very personable and... More

This was a great experience for a first time surfer. I had a private lesson with Trevor who was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable and able to relay that knowledge to me, was encouraging and fun, was able to tell me what to correct on my next go. I got up on my second attempt. I’d recommend him to others... More

This was an outstanding experience for first time surfers. Instructors were very cautious with our two young grandchildren. They were committed to insuring that everyone in our group had a positive experience and were able to actually do some surfing.They had a way of setting everyone at ease before entering the water by teaching basic essentials on the shore.

My husband and I were a little unsure about surfing. We were scared actually. Kenny the instructor eased our minds and from there it was so much fun. Although I was a little terrified to surf, my husband enjoyed every second. Kenny was amazing and didn't force me to do anything I wasn't comfortable doing and always made sure we... More

We absolutely LOVED our surf lesson this morning! Given that I had never touched a surfboard before, and my husband only once, the lesson provided was just perfect! I loved the fact that it was a semi private lesson, that actually went for 2hrs (longer than any other lesson we've seen prior to booking)! It only ended being the two... More

I'll try not to duplicate what so many positive others have stated but what a great experience for my daughters and I. I had 10 year old on a private lesson with Keoni and my 13 and 16 year olds and I with Kenny. Our lesson was at the same time but this way we had the right attention in... More
