The only activity my 14 year old son begged to do during our trip to Hawaii, was to learn to surf. We found Ivan at Hook Up Surfing, through a surf shop across the street from our hotel.
This experience was worth every penny!
Ivan picked my son up promptly, and headed over to the surfing location for a private lesson. After spending time on the ground, learning the basics about surfing, Ivan and my son took to the water. In less than 3 minutes in the water (NO JOKE) my son was surfing!!
Ivan was very knowledgeable, positive, energetic, friendly, and an overall awesome instructor!
We HIGHLY recommend Hook Up Surfing--- don't waste your time with the people who sit on the beach and advertise, or the companies that are found inside the hotels/on hotel properties-- they are too expensive, for a much lower quality lesson.
