“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

Had a great experience at RHSA. We went in Lahaina where, we were told, the waves are a little better. Our instructor was Ikaika and he worked with the whole family to make sure we got up and stayed up for a little chaka style time. He even showed us a headstand on his way in! Really fun. Go early to avoid the crowds.

“Highlight of our kids trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

First of all convenience of having it right next to our hotel/lMarriott Ocean Club. Kalonii (sp) was awesome with our kids as was Bear. They offer them shirts and shoes to wear. Kaloni goes farther out, pushes them at right time and tells them when to stand up. Bear waits in the shallow part and helps them get out on board and guides them to go back out. Our kids looked like they had been doing this for ever by the time their session was up. Highly recommend this group!!!

“Best experience for surfing with Josh Riccio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014

My dad my friends and I did not know if we would like surfing until we met Josh Riccio. It was by far the one of the best things of my trip. Josh would always cheer us on and help us if we needed it. If you want a great day and surfing experience visit Josh Riccio at the Westin on Ka'anapali. We will always ask for josh when we go.

“Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2014

We've surfed here 3 times and have loved it every time. We had Tavner every time and he was great! I would totally recommend the Royal Hawaiian Surf Academy to anyone over any other surf school in the area.
