Ben and Team (Eli, Rory, and Mar) are incredible instructors. Super nice, patient, and intuitive! Ben welcomed us with a warm Aloha spirit, and he went out of his way to make our experiences special. We signed up for semi private lessons for our kids ages 8 through 12 and parents, and they were perfect for the various skill levels. We valued the lessons and instructions so much, we came back 3 more times while we were in town. Mahalo!

Excellent time learning to surf but the guide made it clear that she didn’t like teaching classes which wasn’t appropriate I paid for the class. It wasn’t like it was a free lesson.

We visited Kona for a week in June. The shop was located just down the road from our rental and across the street from the location of our surfing lessons. Christopher was super friendly and knowledgable and helped us with snorkel gear and surf boards for the week. Great guy! He made the experience very relaxed and funny! He cares about the customer relationship. Mahalo, Chris!
