At Gone Surfing Hawaii, we live the motto, "Less Work / More Surf" because being in the ocean isn't just our job, it's a lifestyle and we love it. Our qualified instructors teach all ages fundamental techniques that can have anyone surfing in no time. So whether you're charging waves for the first time, or taking your skills to the next level, let us bring a little "More Surf" into your life. When you're ready to journey beyond Waikiki, join us for a full day's adventure along the North or East shores exploring surf spots, sights and local foods.

Gone Surfing Hawaii is a small, locally owned and operated company.

All Our lessons and Tours start on the sand with ocean awareness and safety. Then we get you right into the surf for a rush of wind and waves. No worries, our licensed instructors are trained in first aid and lifeguard CPR. Once in the water, we show you how to read the waves, position your take off, and the etiquette of wave riding. Whether you're a one-on-one type or you prefer fun with friends, our customized lessons and tours are built to make your adventure on the waves one to remember.

My wife and I (literally) just took our first surfing lesson with them. What an amazing time! We were able to "catch our first wave" on our first try! Thanks to all the wonderful people we met at GSH, especially Trevor! Aloha!

My son and I had an unforgettable experience with the crew from Gone Surfing. When you're on holiday it's sometimes hard to find somewhere that doesn't deliver an experience like a Tourist Sausage Factory. Gone Surfing was a great find! We felt like we'd met some cool locals who took us out for a wave. The instructors were easy going... More

Gone surfing hawaii located near Sheraton Waikiki is the best surfing shop I've ever been to. After about 5-10min of training on the beach you can go ahead to the line-up. Thanks to the instructor I could stand up almost 95% and paddle back to the line up. Also great pictures taken by photographer - you can get cool pics... More

My 3 children aged 13 to 21 experienced their first surfing lesson with Gone Surfing in Waikiki. Fantastically friendly staff who managed to get them all surfing and extremely quickly. So much so that they insisted on going again . A big thank you to Bailey , Caz, Alehandro and Jeremy. We were offered the option of having photos taken... More

I suggest you to pick the 8am session since it is getting more people at a later time. Gone Surfing was a really nice experience with my instructor Shawn who was really patient and willing to improve my skill. I was able to stand up and surf like 6-7 times in the two-hour class. The most tiring part was paddling... More

We SO enjoyed our afternoon with Gone Surfing! We had four kids, ages 10, 11, 12, and 14, along with four 40-something parents. We all got up on the first few tries, and continued to ride waves as our instructors positioned us and gave us that essential push that allowed us to catch waves. There were folks right next to...

My boyfriend and I booked a private lesson. I ended up sitting it out due to health reasons (the team were great at arranging a partial refund and had a shaded area for me to sit on at the beach). My boyfriend had an awesome time, got up on his first try and had several more successes afterwards. As a... More

I'd highly recommend Gone Surfing and we had a very memorable experience with them. We had a 2 hour family lesson ; my wife and I, our 7 year old son and 2 instructors. Shawn got both of us 40 somethings standing up and surfing in no time at all; such a great feeling riding a wave towards Waikiki with... More

You might be hesitant to believe that you can manage to get on a board as a complete surfing novice and also otherwise not sporty person, like myself. Gone surfing really delivers!
