Saw a Groupon for this whilst we were on vacation in Hawaii. Looked fantastic value for money for our family of four but I didn't know if there would be availability when we were on Oahu so I called Matthew first and spoke with him. None of us had ever surfed before and I wanted to make sure that my... More

Private lesson with my family of 4 (2 kids - 18 and 16) and couldn't be happier with the decision to go with Blue Rush! Matt and Stephanie exceeded our expectations. They were very thorough and so calm and relaxed. We never felt rushed, they just wanted us to enjoy ourselves and have great memories. We were all standing on... More

Found these lessons on Groupon and was a little worried since there was no website. I texted Matt to set up the appointment and everything went smoothly. Matt and Stephanie were great and very friendly! We were all up on the first try and they were very patient and always concerned with safety first!

Even though we lived most of our lives close to Jersey Shore we never surfed so on recent(and first) visit to Hawaii figured this was the place and time to do it. Got a Groupon so deal was great and met Matt at beach on North Shore as scheduled. Day was beautiful, waves were perfect for us newbies and after... More

This was our first time taking surf lessons with Matt and he is an excellent surf instructor. We will definitely be back.

I was a little worried booking this lesson over the phone and giving out my credit card information but everything went just as planned. In fact the there was a high sea warning for the day of our lessons and we delayed them till the next day. Matt was a great instructor and everyone was surfing on the first or... More

We went there, my sister and I with 3 kids 8-10-12. They can teach anyone to surf. Super relaxed and nice couple that were a dream team. I felt safe at all times and we felt we learned a lot in just one lesson!! Go there. You will love it. They have got the aloha spirit! And their friend takes... More

I was very nervous and hesitant to learn how to surf. Being raised on the flat Canadian prairies, I have developed a fear of the ocean...not lakes, not rivers...just the ocean...so this was a big step for me. Matt was amazing, right from the booking process to meeting and greeting in the parking lot and then down to the beach... More

I arranged an hour and a half private lesson with Blue Rush Surf School for my 13 year old son and nephew during our stay on the North Shore. Matt was very knowledgeable, patient and personable and gave the boys an unforgettable experience. Malachai and Dustin enjoyed their lesson so much we booked a second session that was just as...

Forget the big surf schools - call Matt!! This was my second year in a row surfing with Matt and the experience just keeps getting better. Because he runs his own school, it is small and even so-called "group lessons" can often end up as one-on-ones! This time there were 2 students and Matt and as usual, we had a... More
