John takes you away from the crazy Waikiki beach area, which is so smart. I couldn't imagine my kids (15, 14, 12, 10) learning how to surf with so many people and other obstacles around. The place he took them wasn't crazy busy at all and the waves were great for learning. Rick also helped and both of the instructors did an amazing job, with all 4 of my kids getting up and absolutely loving surfing. Communication was excellent and John went above and beyond the lesson with offering help with future surfing tips. I took my big zoom lens camera to get pictures from the beach, but they were too far out to be any good. It didn't matter, John and Rick took great pictures (and alot) and sent them to my email. Highly recommend.

We had a great time with Polu Lani Surf. We were a first time family with younger children and John and Rick took care of us. We have family members who are afraid of water but it went much better than expected and everyone had fun surfing. We would love to return when we come back to Hawaii. Thank you again.

It was such a great experience. John was really great and patient. He explained everything before we got in the water. I was a little nervous as I’d never surfed before but John was right there the entire time and I got up on the first wave. After that, I was addicted. The whole experience was just amazing

I had been paddling out beyond the break at my home beach, but hadn’t made it from “paddler” to “surfer” - until January on Oahu. I had such a great time! Totally patient and professional. Mahalo!
