Tony provided excellent instruction during a private and first time surfing lesson for our 12 year old daughter. She really enjoyed it and my husband and I felt Tony was very careful and placed a lot of importance on safety. Amazing place to surf! Highly recommend this company and experience!

We came to HNL recently for my work trip and decided to take surfing lessons. My wife and I are 50 years old and my niece is a senior in college; we had never been on a surfboard before. Early in our trip we took our first lesson at another school on the island and were satisfied. But in talking with locals they kept recommending this school called Faith Surf. Later in the week I found myself with a couple hours free in Waikiki and decided to take another lesson to reinforce what I had learned in my first lesson. I called Faith in the morning and had pleasant conversations with Tammy who was able to squeeze me into a group lesson later in the afternoon. When I showed up I learned that our instructor was none other than the legendary Tony Moniz. Tony gave a very thorough safety briefing on the beach. He also gave some insightful coaching on how to handle ourselves in the crowded Canoes area where we would be surfing. In addition, he taught a pop up technique in detail that seemed easier for me to execute. We then headed out to paddle to the surf. Once there, Tony set me up on several waves that were just sweet; all I had to do was pop up and I was surfing. I also noticed my fellow students were consistently standing up and surfing with Tony's coaching and positioning. I was able to chat with Tony while we sat on our boards waiting for the next set. Tony was friendly, pleasant and very humble. He never mentioned his many accomplishments as a pro surfer. He just said he was born and raised in the area and had been surfing all his life. Tony personifies the Aloha spirit for which Hawaii is famous, and has a big generous heart as well. I'm so grateful the locals pointed me towards Faith Surf School. There's no better place to take your first surfing lessons in Waikiki than Faith.

Our 2 daughters (22, 20) had a blast with FSS! Caught lots of waves (2nd time surfing), and available pictures taken with high-end telephoto lens were a bonus (though not inexpensive). Would absolutely recommend!!

If you want to learn to surf this is the place to start! They keep it fun and simple. Making it easy to catch your first waves. I followed Tony’s instructions and I was up on my feet the first wave, and he continued to give great pointers and made sure that it was an amazing experience. Everyone one of the staff were polite and extremely helpful.
