We were looking for beginner surf lessons on our vacation in Waikiki. I checked into Kai Sallas’ Surf Lessons since they had so many great reviews on Trip Advisor. Prices were competitive so we booked a group lesson for 2 adults and 4 minors (10-12). Our instructor, Jake, was awesome and all of us were up on our first wave! Jake talked to all of the kids about their sports and his life surfing. He was very personable with our group and really cared about teaching techniques and getting the most of our experience. We had a great time and all members of our group caught so many waves during our 2 hour window. Highly recommend Jake and his team at
Kai Sallas’ Surf School! Best activity from our trip and the kids can’t wait to surf again! Mahalo Jake!!

Had an Awesome Hawaiian surfing experience with Kai Sallas' Pro Surf School Hawaii.

I booked for a group lesson and managed to get a quiet day with 2 instructors and only 1 other student. We were taken to a quieter beach in Waikiki away from the crowds that had more of a locals feel. My family was able to come along too and watch my lesson from the beach. Everything we required for the lesson was provided (boards,rashies,reef shoes). The 2 instructors were very professional but extremely laid back which made the experience seem like we were getting taught by mates. The instructors truly enjoyed their job and were as happy as we were when we managed to catch a couple of waves. The experience was made even more special by seeing turtles on our paddle out. I would definitely recommend this as a must have Hawaiian experience!

My 17 year old daughter described her surf lesson as the best day of her life. The instructors were patient and kind with our large group of girls and by the end of the day all our girls were surfing. They all had a great time and we counted this as a huge success. I cannot recommend Kai Sallas enough they were awesome and the price was unbeatable!! Only thing, if your surfing, bring a rash guard.

Our 12-year-old daughter participated in a semi-private lesson and said it was the best thing we did on vacation in Hawaii. The instructors were positive, encouraging and respectful of the kids, all of whom were riding waves by the end of the lesson. It was very exciting to watch! We couldn't have asked for a better experience and we can't wait to go back. Aloha!

Group lessons were a blast and we learned so much! Very professional and patient, but still laid-back and enjoyable! Had a small lesson on the basics and then went out to a private beach area to surf. They provided rash guards and the boards! Would highly recommend!

Group lesson - 5 people - 3 instructors. Great time. We had private area on beach (a VERY rare thing in Wakik) where instructors were great. Jake made it all enjoyable. Many waves with no danger of hitting anyone- better than Maui experience for that.

Our group of 9, including 5 tweens/teens took a 2 hour morning lesson last week. They were on time to pick us up from the Aulani and all of the staff was friendly. The beach where we were taken was appropriate for beginners but not really scenic (if that is important to you) and there was a sort of homeless camp set up right near us in the bushes.

The beach has many large rocks so waves cannot be ridden in to the shore. Two of my kids ended up with big scrapes on their hips near the end of the lesson as they fell against the rocks. I wasn't close enough to see this happen at the time and the staff did clean up the wounds reasonably until we got back to the resort and had some more in depth first aid attention. I don't blame the surf school for this, it is a hazard of being on a rocky coast and unfortunately I don't think there is another choice around Oahu.

Overall we were happy with the quality of instruction and location based on the size of the waves there.

Very down to earth, professional and fun experience. Excellent instructor. We learned at an easy spot and could get up on the board on our first wave.
