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

My husband and I recently took stand-up paddle board lessons with Gone Surfing; we had a great time! Trevor was an excellent instructor. In short order, we were paddling around the ocean and having a wonderful time. I very much recommend Gone Surfing to anyone in the Waikiki area looking for something fun and different to do!

My kids had a great time. Their instructor, Rafael, really made their experience fun and exciting. We had some scheduling issues and they helped us work it out. Real professional company.

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
