We went for a group lesson and were just blown away by the friendliness of the staff starting from check-in and continuing throughout the lesson by the instructors. Awesome waves in Hanalei Bay too!

We had a group of four for a beginner lesson with Scott. It was a fantastic surf lesson; Scott was a great instructor, didn’t waste any time getting into the water, and was great at giving individual advice based one everyone’s ability. Great day!
