My girlfriend and I took the semi-private surfing lessons and had Keoni as our instructor. The lesson lived up to the rest of the reviews on here - 5/5, totally worth the money. It was our first time ever on boards, my girlfriend got a few waves partially and I managed to get one all the way to the end.... More

Under the very helpful and clear instruction of Trevor, my husband and I both managed to stand on our first waves. Incredible! Trevor was really great and super informative. I'm not the strongest swimmer but Trevor made me feel very safe at all times. It was lots of fun, the paddling component is way more tiring that than it appears... More

I did the private surfing lesson and had a great time, albeit a bit more tiring that I had hoped, but was still a very good experience. We had waves that my instructor rated about an 8/9 for the day, so it was perfect surfing conditions. Our instruction occurred almost in between hotel buildings due to the high surf, but... More

If you're looking for an amazing surfing experience, you have to book a lesson with these guys! Trevor was a fantastic instructor. After a quick 15 minute lesson on land, we trekked out to the water. After a few flops, I was able to catch a decent sized wave. Words can't fully express the rush! To be honest, I think... More

I went to Hawaii for business, but I had a personal day to have fun before getting started. Of course, I wanted to spend it learning to surf! I had a great time learning to surf with Theo! He was definitely a surfing expert and did a great job explaining how to do everything. I was able to get standing... More

I booked a semi-private lesson with my friend through my hotel concierge and it couldn't have been better! My instructor, Trevor picked us up at our hotel and then we walked a short distance on the beach to outside the outrigger reef hotel. We got rash guards and then did a tutorial about safety and basics on the beach. Then... More

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
