Dom was awesome in teaching two women in their early fifties what they can do! As promised he got us up to standing and riding waves. He was patient, encouraging, and accommodating about our delayed arrival. My sister was reluctant but totally won over by the end. Only regret is that we did this at the end of our trip.... More

I've had one surfing lesson before this so I'm still trying to master the art of not falling off, and thanks to the instructor, Austin, I had a great time! He was very good at helping me figure out what I needed to do, and the best part was he had a great attitude. I started psyching myself out after... More

Dom and his crew were fun and professional as they set us up on waves and gave us a push. Austin took my son in law out to the second break to get him some bigger waves. The crew are local expert surfers. They took time to show each of my family group where to paddle, where to put your... More

Dom promised that the surfer would "get up" and "stand up" or a money back guarantee. He delivered as promised and had my two teenage daughters up and surfing! It was wonderful and the highlight of their Hawaii trip. If we ever come back to the Big Island we will look for Dom! Next time he may even get me,... More

My wife, 17 year old daughter, and I had the best family experience learning to surf with Austin. Nothing beats the feeling of that wave pushing you along and nothing is better than seeing your daughter "shred" her first wave! Lots of fun and a first class operation!

We took a semi-private lesson and the surf instructor was not great. He basically gave no constructive feedback and was just cheering. He did not do any real teaching. Among the worst surf lessons I have ever had.

Over the summer my family and I traveled to Hawaii for a family vacation. We are an outdoorsy family who likes to be active. We actually discovered the company last minute and was able to go paddle boarding. The staff was incredibly friendly and really made our experience in hawaii enjoyable. Would definitely recommend to families with teenagers who are... More

Had intentions of having a great day of surfing when I booked this and came away with an even better experience. I personally sucked at surfing but Dom, my instructor, made it fun and kept me up beat with his positive attitude and love of surfing. Dom helped me to ride some waves with his pointers and instruction so all... More

Wow, what a great day in the surf! My 14 year daughter and I took a two hour lesson with Austin the morning after getting to Kona from the east coast of the US. Despite our jet lag, it was an awesome morning on the water! Domenic was great in terms of setting up our time and Austin was fantastic... More

My husband and I just spent 2 weeks on the Big Island. Even though we were staying at a hotel in Waikoloa, we drove every day down to Kona for our surfing and diving activities. We didn't need lessons, just boards. The owner, Dom is very friendly and accommodating, and we had some of our best moments of the trip... More
