The photographer was an hour and a half late. My teen son was freezing after an hour. Not sure how to remedy this but wet suits would've been a start. We basically missed having good photos taken which was my reason for the lesson. We had a much better experience with Big Wave Dave a few years ago.

This is simply the best surfing lesson you can take. We've gone 2 years in a row and love it. I'm 41 and my daughter is 9 and we both learned to surf and had many great rides. Easy pickup and drop off from Aulani and the staff is fantastic. They also take amazing Go Pro pics in the water... More

Very nice people and feel safe for them to have your children surfing with them. It will be better if have more pictures taking and another half hour in the water.

As travellers from the UK we felt that surfing on Waikiki was a must do and we enjoyed the activity more as an event than as something we'll do much of. We were staying at Hilton Waikiki and thanks to Chris Barzman as the Local Expedia Expert in the Hotel for acting as Concierge. We walked to the Marriot and... More

This was my 15 year old son's first surfing experience and it could not have been better! The pickup from Aulani (Ko Olina) was on time and it was easy to spot the big orange van. Dino (or Deano?) was great fun! Lots of energy, very knowledgeable, and put my son (and his worried mother) immediately at ease. Wife and... More

It's never to late to learn.... This experience was AMAZING!!! I've wanted to learn how to surf since I was a little kid. Josh was our instructor and he did a fantastic job walking us through each step to prepare us for the water. Throughout our land training and even in the water, he also gave us feedback to improve...
