“Great instructor Tehlvi”
Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

An awesome way to learn how to surf. They made it super easy and they will get you up on your first or second wave. Highly recommend.

“Very very good !”
Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

Went there today with our group of 7.

Took a semi private lesson with 2 great instructors for our group ( Mike and Travis ... I am not sure about Travis's name, sorry ). Both were great.

Easy to find, easy to park, nice set-up facilities to change and get ready, great instructions. Decent pricing on the photographies.

All school seems to be doing their lesson pretty much in the same area which become a bit crowded. To bad they can't spread out to have more breeding room between the groups.

Go early ! We went at 10:30 and it was getting crowded !

One note to Royal : I know you are getting something back from Captain Jack restaurant for referring your clients there but you should refer somewhere else. If our experience with you was great, Capitain Jack was well below average.

“Great Fun and We learned to Surf”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

This is a great surf school. I highly recommend it. My husband has surfed before, but our children and I never did until this trip. It was an awesome experience. My son's instructor, Evan, was so patient and fun, our son wanted to go back the next day and do it all again. I highly recommend this company. All the instructors seemed great, but Evan was wonderful. Also, the waves are perfect for beginners.

“Spectacular Experience”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

We booked a private surf lesson through Royal Hawaiian Surf Academy for our 11 year old daughter and it definitely was worth every penny. Kea, her instructor was very patient and attentive. He had her surfing (and this was her first time) in a very short time.

They also offer group lessons, but it was nice for her to have the one-on-one guidance. Definitely would recommend using this company. They are flexible and easy to work with and everyone was so pleasant.
