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.

We're in Waikiki... what better place to take surfing lessons for the first time? My husband and I booked a two hour lesson with Caz. Since I had never surfed before, I was a little nervous, but we both wound up catching many waves. Caz was knowledgeable and patient, and made sure we had a great experience. I admit, it... More

So essentially we had 2 instructors between the 3 of us. They took great care of us, made it heaps of fun, explained it in a way... More

Me and my partner had a private lesson with Trevor on 8th November and absolutely loved it. We've never surfed before but will definitely do it again after this experience. You feel like and band of brothers out there waiting for your wave and Trevor made it all fun and his knowledge of the island is great too. Even had... More

Me and my girlfriend we both never had an experience before, but we had a great time with Gone Surfing. We had a private lesson with Sohn for 2 hours, and it was obviously one of the most fun part of our trip. The reservation was quite easy through online, and we met the instructor in the exact place that... More

I surfed a lot on Oahu growing up and quite a few times around the world in the last 60 years. I don't surf regularly as I am not near to surf places, but I am active in many other sports. I prepared for my 2 hour Gone Surfing session by swimming a couple of times a week through the... More

I booked with Gone Surfing after a former local recommended THEM when I'd "missed out" on a lesson through the Outrigger Reef hotel. I'm SO glad I missed that OTHER lesson!! I booked a private lesson for later in the week. Well, Caz was a FANTASTIC instructor, and Bailey was encouraging as well! I really wanted to LEARN, so I... More

Since way back in the day of watching the old 60s Surf movies, I always wanted to learn to surf. I came to Hawaii to celebrate a mile-stone birthday. This was going to be the trip I got a board in the water. Now, I realize that I am an older woman that could use some work on her upper... More
