I enjoyed the location and the surfing experience itself. Easy to book, get to and check-in. However, our instructor (I believe his name was Mark) was high as a kite in my opinion. He could not say my sons name after repeating it several times and he just not seemed to be really "there". The lesson started 5 min. late and ended 10 minutes early. He did explain the process on dry ground pretty good, but I just felt not comfortable with him in the water (too close to the stones in the water - every one of us 4 got scratched or bumped). Really disappointed as I had read all the great comments before we booked this experience. I assume if you book the private or semi-private lesson, you will get the better instructors.

My 19-year old son and I are totally beginners and had a fantastic experience with Steve Campos. He’s a clear, patient and skilled instructor. Within the first 15 minutes we were catching waves!

For my birthday I treated myself to a surf lesson, just because. I read reviews and was glad that I chose Hawaiian Style Surfing. Since I am an "elder" I wanted a semi-private lesson and it ended up being a great private lesson with Kai. We practiced "popping up" on the grass before entering the water. He "pushed" me on to the wave and it up to me. I was a "bi-pod" surfer, if only for a few seconds, but I did it! The hardest part, was paddling back out to him to try it again, and again, and again! So glad I did it. The rocks were not a problem. I watched the classes and for my skill and strength level, do that think that I would have received the personal attention and coaching that I needed in a larger group setting. I would do it again and hope to at least one more time!

Matt was amazing. Highlight of graduation trip so far. The smile on my grandsons face was priceless.

I had set up to go out and when I showed up they suggested I reschedule due to the waves were not the good. I was impressed that they told me this and not just took my money and sent me out. I had Steve as my instructor who was very easy going and helped me knock the rust off of my technique. I hadn’t surf for 25 years! He explained the things I was doing wrong and helped me correct them. Great time thanks to them.
