My girlfriend and her best friend joined me for a private surf lesson and ALL of us were up and surfing in no time! The amount of time and support they afforded us was amazing! Matthew, Eddie and Ashley were incredible instructors and supporters! We loved the photos that we purchased after our 2 hour lesson!

I did a 2 hr lesson with my wife and neither of us had tried surfing before. We were met by Ashley at the designated place and time and she gave us an outline of the lesson and what we would be doing. The land based introduction was simple and clear and we proceeded to the water and put it... More

I had an incredible experience with Waves Hawaii Surf School. The teachers were very helpful and it could not have been a better first surfing experience for me. I was supposed to be with a group of four (with Ashley), but I ended up being with a family of 6 (since two of them wanted to join the lesson as... More

We are from Mississippi. We don't surf. This was a first for my 54 yr old husband, 11 yr old son, & 9 yr old daughter. Matthew was such a great instructor. My kids got up the very first attempt & my husband got up the 2nd or 3rd try. It was one of our favorite things we've done on... More

My son is 49 inches tall and weighs 51 pounds, so I wanted to make sure that he would have one on one private instruction for safety and to "tow" him back out to the surf. We met his instructor at the designated parking lot, had a 2 minute land lesson and off to the ocean. The instructor did great... More

Had a great morning surfing with instructor Justice! My daughter and I were taught with patience, enthusiasm, and tons of knowledge. First time surfing for both of us, but certainly not the last thanks to Waves!
