Friendly and knowledgeable instructors for our semi-private lesson. Ivan, Forest and Gillian were so great. We really appreciated having Ivan as our main instructor. He was patient and gave simple easy to follow directions. We throughly enjoyed our morning! Would highly recommend them to everyone. Mahalo.

Coming to Hawaii for a school trip with 30 teenagers who have no surfing background, made me initially wary of any surfing company willing to take us on. I could not have been more impressed by the Kona Surf Company! They were more than capable of handling our numbers, knew how to ensure that each participant worked at their own... More

The guys are so chill, they teach really well and they even allow us to try on our own and it was so awesome of them to take us to the bigger waves and even teach us more. They are truly great guys and amazing experience with them.

Very thorough semi private lessons. Surf boards in Good condition. Very personable instructors for our large group. Most of our group rode a lot of waves. I would recommend them without hesitation.

There are no words to describe how amazing this experience was with Kona Surf Company!!! I had no experience at all and I am not athletic. Austin was so patient and encouraging and genuinely excited when I got up! Yes, I got up - several times. Absolutely the best experience!! Mahalo Austin!!!

We originally had a group of 3 booked but ended up with 5 the day of and they were very accommodating. Austin and Duane were awesome instructors! They made it fun, but they also teach you quite a bit. It was a great time. They also take pictures which is cool.

Instructors were the best!! Outfitting you with surf socks and water shirt, giving you land instructions with a board, taking you out to surf site. Biggest help was telling you what waves to go on which was a big part of actually being able to surf. Actually caught over 20+ waves and was able to stand and surf the wake.... More

Dominic and his crew were very helpful, but a little difficult to track down! You won't find Kona Surf Co in the tourist brochures and flyers. Fortunately, you just need to find their website, book your time on line, and get ready to surf! Located south on Ali'i Dive, the Kona Surf Co van appears every morning at Kahaluu Beach.... More

Had originally signed up for a 1x1 surf lesson for my daughter. On the day she went for her lesson, there were too many surfers and the wave conditions were not too great. Thankfully we were staying in the island a few more days and she got a free 2 hr surf lesson. Great and super friendly instructors. Couldn't ask... More

I booked a semi-private lesson for my husband and I on the day of his birthday. The semi-private or private lessons are best as you get a lot of time with your instructor and many waves! We had Charles as instructor and he was fantastic! My husband had surfed before and had lessons in other countries and told me 'we'll... More
