Reviewed July 23, 2013

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.

This was our very first time surfing and we had a ball. The instructors do a great job instructing and obviously love their job (thanks fuzzy). For newbies 2 hrs is a long time especially one on one but get great experience and this company is one of very few that has permit for an area known for its breaks when the usual place is flat. This gives you as a new surfer a great advantage.

This was my first lesson and I'm glad I did an indivdual session. Kona Mike was actually my instructor and he was very patient and helpful in getting me to ride my first waves. A great experience and one I would recommend to anyone interested in learning to surf or even experienced surfers looking for an awesome wave. I'll certainly use Kona Mike on our next trip back!!!!

Mike was wonderful and we felt so at ease with his instructing our grandsons. They will never forget this experience. Our oldest grandson went back for a second lesson and loved it even more. Thank you Mike for helping our family make such great memories.
