I've recently wanted to try surfing, but there was something special about doing so in Hawaii. I looked up reviews and found Gone Surfing, and since they were conveniently located near my hotel (Sheraton Waikiki), I gave it a shot and booked a private lesson. I'm so glad I did! I met Jedi, who taught me everything I needed to... More

This is Travis and Sasha, (writing on my buddies account). Anyways, we went this past weekend, found them alongside the beach after reading the reviews of this place. I was definitely excited but my girlfriend was VERY skeptical and hesitant. She was never really interested in the thought of surfing. She suggested to just "watch" me by the sand. I... More

My two daughters, ages 13 and 15, and I took lessons with Jedi. We had the best time! He was an awesome instructor who loves to teach about the ocean and surfing. My daughters caught waves almost immediately, but it took me much longer. Jedi was very patient, and kept working with me until I was finally able to stand... More

Went surfing with these guys three times. Everyone is super friendly and helpful. They know the good spots so your never stuck in a crowd and I guarantee you you will be catching waves!! Had three two hour solo sessions and they were easily the highlight of my trip. If you enjoy the beach you HAVE to give this a... More

This was our third lesson overall (within 3 years), but second time with Gone Surfing. I was a little nervous even though we were somewhat experience, but it had still been a year. We had Izah who was an awewsome instructor and put us at ease immediately. The hurricanes were headed our way so we ended up with awesome near... More

5 family members and friends went out with these guys for 2 hours and had a great time. Rafael were very helpful and provided great instruction. All the beginners were able to get up and it was one of the highlights of our vacation. Be sure to put sunscreen on the back of your legs. Ouch. Highly recommend this company.

Loved my experience with Jojo! She had me up surfing in no time. Imagine the best day ever on the water off the beach at Waikiki and seeing Diamond Head from the ocean ;) Loved my day here!!

My family of 3 had a 2-hour lesson with Raff and this was truly the highlight of our vacation. Great instruction and encouragement! I highly recommend the picture deal! We all have great photos to match the memories. Thanks Gone Surfing!

I was a bit nervous to go surfing as I am not really a "sporty" kind of gal... but I am so glad I did... it really is true that you really only need to know how to swim to be able to try surfing. My instructor Brad was fantastic at "towing" me out and keeping me safe :) I... More

My daughter, my niece and a friend of my daughter had a lesson with Jedi. They loved it! Jedi was a master. He helped them to catch the wave at the right time and when they were tired at the end he towed them in. This is the place to go if you want a wonderful surfing adventure.
