This is the absolute best surfing class I've ever taken. "Al" or Albert is an excellent instructor who is certified. This certification means a lot since there are many hazards on the water. This became extremely evident when someone with another surf school lost her 2 front teeth because the instructor had not discussed proper safety. Albert was excellent, professional,... More

I signed up my 3 athletic children age ranges from 10 - 22. They had an absolutely fabulous time. Albert made sure they were very ready to enter the water. They loved the first time so much that they had to go back for another day. Instead of souvenirs, they opted for another lesson which they paid for. Each of... More

Super fun. Went early in the morning and enjoyed some waves and it was not crowded. They have super experienced teachers. It was our first time and we both caught a wave by ourselves by the end. These guys are SUPER AFFORDABLE too!

We booked surfing lessons for 6 people through Al for our family vacation. Two adults and four teenagers. We all had such a great time surfing and were able to catch several waves with Al's help! Because there were 6 of us, Al had another great instructor along to help him. He was careful to teach us about safety and... More

We had a really fun time for the whole lesson! The instructor was calm and patient. Both of us had a really great time during the lesson! If we come to waikiki again, we will take more lessons!

I dragged along four friends who had little to no surfing experience and Al took care of ALL of us in the water. He even brought out another instructor to ensure that we'd each get a fair amount of instruction and supervision. The lesson was tremendosly fun and yes, we stood up! Al and his team were genuinely caring, patient... More

Over the course of two trips, I've taken four lessons with Al and his team. I cannot imagine having a better surf instructor. Having never been before, I was unsure of whether I'd be able to get up at all. Al had me popping up and catching my own waves by the end of my first lesson, and in each... More

Al provided a great lesson for myself and my two daughters(aged 12 and 13). He was knowledgable, patient and tailored the lessons to our different abilities. Al provided all the equipment including boards, water shoes and rash guards. We all were able to catch some waves and had some good rides on the waves. A great time! Thx Al.

Al is a great teacher. Very patient and good with all age groups. There were several texts and calls from Al to make sure that the date and time of the lessons were correct. Al moved.our lesson back a day to avoid a local holiday that would have made for.crowded waves.

Al and Mooch offered a great lesson at a local surf break, near to Waikiki, but away from the crowds and other lessons. I appreciated that it was not too "touristy" and definitely had some local flavor. Al was great about staying in contact regarding the weather and surf conditions and rescheduling our lessons to accommodate these factors. As a... More
