Owner description: 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 Gone Surfing Hawaii lessons 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 are built to make your adventure on the waves one to remember.

Our instructor Kenny was awesome! This was a very positive experience for both my girlfriend and me. Would definitely recommend for ANYONE who wants to try surfing. Perfect weather (~25 C) and great waves.

My husband and I decided to try surfing while in hawaii. My husband was a little nervous as we are from central Canada and haven't spent very much time in the ocean and had never tried surfing. I did quite a bit of research (for we were visiting 4 of the 8 islands and had a lot of flexibility) and... More

My wife and I had a great surfing experience with Rafael and rest of Gone Surfing team. I requested a smaller board while booking which was available for me right on the spot! Rafael made us feel really confortable during the land demo and safety instructions (specially my wife who had never surfed before). We both managed to caught some... More

My son (5yrs old) has been surfing with Jojo since he was 2. She is the best and he completely adores her. She was very attentive and made everything so... More

I took lessons with Theo on 1/11/15 & had a wonderful time! First & foremost, Theo is all about safety & everything being done in a safe manner! During our lesson, another instructor from a different company, mind you, was taken out with a 4 year old student on his board (which is not uncommon). Theo quickly went over to... More

Honolulu/Waikiki has a population of 500,000 ppl and it seems like just as many surfing lesson companies are there to choose from. We booked a private lesson with Gone Surfing for myself and my 18 yr old son and my 20 yr old daughter on our week long visit to Oahu. We had Trevor as an instructor. We met Trevor... More

Our family had a great time with Gone Surfing. Theo and Kevin were awesome with my boys (10 and 8) and Kenny did the hard work of getting me and my wife surfing. We all caught some great waves and had an excellent time. My kids can't wait to go again and I can't recommend them enough.

He tought me the basics on the beech before paddling out to the waves. He had a great teaching style and helped me correct my flaws. I caught... More

This was an awesome experience for those that haven't attempted to surf before. The instructor was really helpful, supportive, and energetic which made a lot of difference. The method they introduced got us up and riding the board standing the very first time with 10 minutes of instruction! We must have had about 10 runs, but the instructor really would... More
