Sergio was able to accommodate a last minute lesson request, and I had a really great time learning from him. We set out early in the morning, and had Pua'ena point all to ourselves for a short while. He is so knowledgable, and has an easy way of relating and breaking it all down. He is so dedicated, I found... More

Sergio took my dad and myself out! He was an amazing instructor and adjusted the size of the waves according to skill. He even switched boards with me, so I could try a narrower and faster board! Also get the photography package! It is worth the extra money! The pictures are so beautiful! This was my third surf lesson from... More

Sergio was fantastic. My wife and I booked a 2.5 hour session with him. He gave us a quick (and thorough) instruction on the beach and off we went. He had me surfing my first wave, and my wife on her third. He completely knows his stuff and was able to give small pointers that made big differences. He would... More

This time my husband and I had a delightful time with Sergio and Carly on a Paddle board trip up the river in Haleiwa. It was so peaceful and beautiful to see the... More

Sergio is amazing! Everyone in our family surfs, except our daughter who is 8. We were really hoping she would let us teach her, but she only trusted Sergio to teach her. He was so patient and such a great teacher. She stood up right away and enjoyed every lesson she had with Sergio. She still asks to go surf... More

We found Sergio's surf school on Trip Advisor and so glad we booked a semi-private with him. My husband and I booked a 2hr lesson with Sergio for $95pp. He was exactly what we thought: down to earth, patient, and friendly. He had long sleeve rash-guards for us which are a MUST. During our 2 hour lesson, We were getting... More

Me and my 4 year old daughter visited and planned surf lessons with Sergio. Well let's just say we both loved it so much and the amazing video and photos his wife did are the best keepsake we have from our trip of both of us surfing. First try and I was up with his instructions and rode the wave... More
