From start to finish this was an excellent experience because of everyone at GSH. In making the reservations via phone call, e-mail correspondence prior to the trip, and directions on where to meet I never had any worries or confusion. The one thing I was concerned about is that an experienced surfer might be annoyed with dealing with first timers... More

It was our first time surfing, and it was a great experience. We were thoroughly briefed before we actually went into the sea to surf. Trevor was a brilliant instructor, and we managed to successfully catch some waves during the 2 hour lessons, even though we had never surfed before. (Mahalo Trevor!) Gone Surfing Hawaii is an awesome place for... More

Trevor was an excellent instructor . I was able to catch some great waves on my feet this time! I had a lesson back in June, my last Oahu visit, and never got up . This is by far the BEST surfing experience you could want! I went out paddle surfing with them earlier in the week and that was... More

My husband and I had a great experience with Gone Surfing Hawaii even if both of us had no experience surfing and I, on my part, is not an expert swimmer. Trevor was such a great instructor and he made me overcome my fear (of drowning, lol!). I would also like to commend the photographer (sorry, I forgot his name.... More

My first time surfing. It was awesome! Jedi was a great teacher! I caught a ton of waves had a blast. I highly recommend the company and the instructor Jedi. This is great for beginners. We surfed in shallow water and caught moderate to small waves. Very safe for minimally athletic ok swimmers. I didn't pay for the photographer so... More

My girlfriend and I could not be happier with the professionalism, knowledge and friendliness of the instructor we had at Gone Surfing Hawaii on Waikiki Beach. We were both surfing in no time and he really made us love what we were doing! He was helpful in setting us up to be in prime position to catch the waves and... More

Ok, so for all of the water babies out there-if you haven't surfed it is totally for you! I love everything water sport related and this was a bucket list level experience. First, the best advice I got is don't go out tired or hungover. Paddling out really takes it out of you and you are going to take on... More

I had the pleasure of having Jedi as my instructor... He was super friendly, very encouraging and helped me paddle out by towing me which was so great as I didn't realise how hard it was!!! I managed to stand up (only just!!) so I can tick it off my bucket list!! Thanks also to the photographers!! All in all... More

Our two young teens had the absolute pleasure of being taught to surf by Jedi. He is an amazing guy who understood the kids straight away. They were up and surfing quicker than even they thought they would be. Jedi made sure they learnt about the ocean before they went out and my partner and I had no concerns about... More

My wife and I are on our first visit to HI. We are staying at the Hilton Village, and searched for the top rated surfing outfits in the area. We chose Gone Surfing because of the reviews and the proximity to our hotel. These guys are awesome, fun, and they know how to take care of first timers. Our instructor... More
