On our honeymoon, my wife and I took the shuttle from Disney's Aulani resort to a group lesson with our instructors Joji and Hank. We had a wonderful time learning the basics of surfing with our group. The instructors were very clear with safety precautions and in helping us figure out how to develop this new skill ourselves. Both Joji... More

I sent the boy (aged 14) on a surf lesson.This was his first time surfing & interacting with USA ers. He really enjoyed both. The surfing bloke was your classic surfer, longish untidy blonde hair, Ruslan said he was really friendly & helpful. Cheers Malcolm McCabe NZ.

Our family of four, (including 2 teenagers) booked and took a semi-private surf lesson with Kai Sallas' Pro Surf School on August 26, 2014. They were able to accommodate our same-day lesson request, which was great. Brant did a great "pre-lesson" in the store, which really helped get us ready for hitting the water. Kai was our instructor and he... More

The location was nice but the boards were in horrible condition and my kids who surf were not offered any instruction and we paid for private lessons. Great for people who haven't surfed before.

This was our third time booking a lesson with Kai Sallas. Once again they did a tremendous job! The staff are all very helpful and accommodating and the instructors are all highly skilled professionals. They emphasize safety first and even the most cautious of people will feel comfortable learning to surf in an area away from the large crowds on... More

Positives: picked us up from our hotel, were friendly, provided water boots and a rash guard, instructors were good looking Negatives : gave no advice on how to improve between waves, only got to ride 4 or 5 waves during the first time beginner group session, didn't provide water or snacks

We bought a Groupon and planned to spend the day SUP. To rent here you have to carry your boards to the beach, there's no good entry point nearby, and then you have to tote the boards back up after you've paddled all day. Next time we will just rent on the beach. FAIL.

Jo Jit and Hank were amazing instructers. If your searching for a surf school this is the one to go to. Super friendly, affordable,safe and knowledgable. They know how to navigate so well on the waters. I had my 2 kids learn how to surf with them for their first time. They take you to a beach that is not... More

Overall: Great experience. My daughter (12), son (15), and myself (47) enrolled in the half day excursion booked from the Aulani Resort. we have never surfed before. Very convenient. Made the reservations from the concierge desk at the Aulani resort 48 hours in advance. I had the impression that they would accommodate most numbers. Started at 9:30 am with pick... More
