We did this activity as a family, so we had two instructors for six people. The instructors were very patient and attentive. They clearly enjoyed surfing and were enthusiastic about teaching others. They were helpful in the water, and made getting up relatively straight-forward . My oldest son said he would now surf every day, if he could. I highly recommend the Royal Hawaiian Surf Academy. However, before you do this activity you must be aware that there are many other surf schools and many other newbies, and many of them are at the same beach as you are. So, despite the efforts of your safe and considerate instructors, you will be around others who are neither safe nor considerate. So, my surf school friends get a "5", but the area in which they have to work gets a "3".

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.

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.

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.
