Kona Mike's Surfing Adventures is a top notch operation. Mike and his instructors are organized, experienced, knowledgeable and have great people skills. From Tara who takes the initial reservation, and Mike who briefs the students before they get into the water, to each of the instructors teaching the students, everyone is a professional - respectful, patient articulate and doing their best to provide a service they have a passion for. We had our four children surfing (three boys and a daughter), a 20 year old (who was very reluctant at first and jumped in last minute), two 17 year old twins, and a 14 year old daughter; each one had an incredible experience and couldn't say enough great things about his/her experience. Kona Mike's provides everything you need; footwear, shirts and the appropriate surf board for your weight and height. Don't miss out on this experience. My husband and I didn't join the kids and that has been our biggest regret.
