Instructor Kalani was hitting on my girlfriend and that was very rude and disrespectful to us. No to this place.

This was the BEST experience. We did a semi-private lesson so it was my daughter and I with the instructor. Conor was AWESOME! He coached us through each wave and was very personable. We were able to stand up every-time (maybe not stay up) 😂. The bulk of our lesson was in the water. This is a must do on your vacation.

My kids, 8 and 12 year old had private lessons. WOW did they have SO much fun!!! My 12 year old wanted to cancel after finding out that she had a private lesson. She ended up going and absolutely had the time of her life! My 8 year old now wants to buy a surf board he loved it so much. EXCELLENT Instructors and they were so good with the kids. Hands down highest recommendation!

Although we did not get to surf for the whole 2 hours, we enjoyed the surf lessons at Hans Hedemann Surf School. The staff were friendly and supportive. The instruction at the school before we moved to the beach was helpful. I wish that a sort of instruction was given again a bit more at the beach before hitting the water.

Hans Hedemann Surf School is right by Waikiki Beach. Park at the Honolulu Zoo, walk across the street to grab your board, then walk across the other street and you are ready to jump in the ocean and start paddling to the surf. The surf instructors were awesome - patient, friendly, and ready to go above and beyond to make it a great experience. Definitely recommend.
