Hawaiian Watersports is great for rentals and lessons. I was on Oahu for 4 days and squeezed in 2 kitesurfing lessons with Josh and rented some sailboard gear to cruise with. First sail I got was too big for me and we easily swapped it out for a smaller one. I was so happy to have sports be center of my trip and Josh’s instruction with the kite was fun and skill building. Definitely recommend and will use again.

We bought a SUP from them; came back the next week to buy a second. Josh and Arlene were great - very helpful, honest advice, and good stuff in the shop.

Very friendly and knowledgeable instructor. A bit far from the Beach. You need to drive to their shop. Sign papers. Then drive to the beach and search for parking. Overall it was easy, but a bit inconvenient. The lesson and tour was fun, easy, and very relaxing. We went overtime and the instructor was perfectly fine. She was enjoying the beautiful weather and scenery as much as I did.

Josh and Ray are awesome! Josh helped me get access to any water sport I ever wanted to do while also being a very positive instructor. Ray was super fun and an obvious expert. We played around with different kiting skills, used connecting radios out in the water, and even played tag while kiting which was ridiculously fun. Great people to talk to for lessons or getting kayaks to go out to the Moks in Lanikai. They operate with professionalism whilst showing great aloha spirit. 10/10.

This is the best Kailua Beach experience by far! From Arlene and Josh at the base to instructors Ray and David on the beach, they are all very professional, great communicators, extremely knowledgeable and confident in their education process, and so friendly you are their best buddy from the start. We are taking kite boarding lessons and are making progress by leaps and bounds. After only 4 hours we are ready to take to the boards and get up and go! Ray's 20 years of experience on Kailua Beach speaks for itself - he knows the conditions better than anyone and still has that new discovery enthusiasm even after all this time at it. Young David impresses me so much! He's just out of high school yet his instruction delivery through their excellent radio headsets is so calm and confidence-building, even when things are going into total chaos with the kite. His voice never changes its steady support of you, giving you the confidence you need to recover, learn, and step up to the next level. David is awesome! And on top of all this, their prices are very reasonable. They also operate a non-profit to bring disadvantaged youth into water sports. So much Aloha! We highly recommend Hawaiian WaterSports for whatever your ocean play desires are from lessons to rentals to great equipment purchase options. Mahalo Nui for a great experience you guys!
