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!

Erik instructed us for about 30% of the time and the rest of the time was spent chatting with another instuctor how ASHLEY had turned... More

We did a surf safari with Waves Hawaii Surf school and loved it. Our family of 4 all surfed and had a blast. I was afraid 4 hours would be too much but we all wanted to do more. With two instructors the safari is the way to go if you really want to learn to surf.

I am in my early 30s, not in bad shape, but not that fit either. Both my fiancee and I both learned to surf and rode waves in our first 1 hour lesson! It was awesome. Our teacher was super nice and helpful, and if I lived nearby, I'd go again. It wasn't too expensive either! Thanks!
