We had a family trip to Waikiki. I have 4 daughters ages 13-22. Ivan at Hook-Up-Surfing is a fantastic Surf instructor. He provides the surf boards and spends much more time with you than the others. My girls all learned to surf and we loved Ivan. He is very personable and trustworthy. I would trust my girls alone with him. When we return we will "hook-up" with Ivan for sure. I guarantee you will love it.
