Had a fantastic time with Ivan during a recent visit to Waikiki. Very knowledgeable about surfing and provided plenty of tips to get me surfing real quick. Definately recommend.

Had an excellent group lesson with Jen and Ivan. Good conversation, practical advice, coverage of all the safety essentials. Would definitely return for more if trip were longer!

My 15-year-old daughter and I had a great surf lesson with Ivan. He is a great teacher and coach. We surfed numerous waves and will always remember our enjoyable experience. Surfing on Waikiki beach, with Diamond Head mountain in the background, was excellent.

We spent a wonderful two hours with Ivan learning to surf. A quick but informative land session was followed by plenty of time in the water. He had us (athletic 60 year olds) up on waves many times and our smiles lasted long after we finished the lesson. He was knowledgeable, patient, and always safe. We would absolutely return to learn again! "Just breathe and be calm."

Jenn was an amazing instructor! It was my first time trying my hand at surfing. She was able to help me translate 8 years of skateboarding to riding waves in short order. I was up and riding after only one wave! It was amazing. We had great conversations in between waves. She was hands down one of the best instructors I’ve been aquatinted with. I will be taking another lesson next time I’m on the islands.
