    Dane and llama were fantastic. They got them up quickly and were super with us. We will be signing up for another one this week and hope to get same people.
    If you've never surfed, try Stoke Drift with Taylor. You will not be disappointed.
    Alan_D, Mar 2023
    Taylor was an amazing instructor, and she helped me actually surf a couple of waves. Overall, very informative, exciting, fun, and just a total blast of an experience. Taylor absolutely knows what she's doing and it shows. She's also fun to get along with, and her teaching style & mannerisms made the experience better. We would've booked a second class with her if we were staying in Oahu for longer; it was that good. If you've never surfed, try Stoke Drift with Taylor. You will not be disappointed.

    Joey was a great surf instructor. It was my girlfriend and I’s first time surfing, and he taught us the basics and got us up on some waves
    Unique experience and opportunity!
    Lois_R, Mar 2023
    Unique experience and opportunity. Great instruction and safety. Professional picture options. Tons of fun!
    Absolutely Wonderful Experience
    Emily_L, Feb 2023
    We booked an 8am surf lesson with Joey. He was all in all a great surf instructor. Paddling out to the surf area was a big help from him. Would love to do it again when we get a chance to visit Oahu again!
    Fun to do but hard to do
    Daniel_C, Jan 2023
    Kayson was the best! He helped teach us all the tips and tricks to surfing and helped us get on our waves! If it wasn’t for him we couldn’t have done it for sure!
    Must do surf lesson on Waikiki Beach
    Lewanne_N, Jan 2023
    We booked this lesson for us and our older teenage sons. It was awesome to get out there and learn the basics of surfing. Our instructors Joey & Lama were great and super encouraging! Physically it was much more strenuous for my husband and I than we anticipated, and we’re in pretty good health, but being able to be out there doing this together was the best!! We caught some great rides and the photographer caught every moment for us!

    These guys and gals are really down to earth and easy to feel comfortable with they provided an amazing experience with pictures and videos for a nominal cost for the quality to add to your memory of experiences.
    Great experience. Would definitely book again

    Taysom could not have been nicer if he tried. Very sweet young man who took great care of us. There were no waves on the day we scheduled so they moved us to the next morning. Very much appreciated it.

    My two boys loved the experience. The instructor was knowledgeable and fun. I would highly recommend this for those looking to give their kids a great time.
    Fun time with my daughter
    Kevin_C, Oct 2022
    We had a great time with Kayson, he taught us all the basics, and even talked to us about some of the more advanced things. We both caught multiple waves for our first time ever surfing. Thank you so much!
    Best experience !!
    Peter_L, Oct 2022
    We searched a lot to find this company and so glad we did! Right from the start the staff Are super friendly and helpful This company gives you A rash shirt to surf in which a lot of companies don’t offer The best part is you are only two people with an instructor We lucked out and got Dane Who was a lot of fun and put you at ease in the water and was incredibly Attentive and enthusiastic encouraging He was determined both of us Would stand on the board before the end of the lesson It was a lot of fun And never felt pressured to end the lesson So glad that we found this company and would recommend it to anybody

    Loved it!! My daughters 17 and 14 had a blast, and want to do it again for sure!! Instructor was super friendly! Note remember lots of sunscreen!!!
    Fantastic experience
    Jocelyn_V, Aug 2022
    Stoke Drift personnel were gracious enough to reschedule our class to another day and time to make our experience more enjoyable and we did! Ua our instructor was the best…respectful, thorough and very patient. He really encourages you to push through and never give up. The only downside was no pictures by the surf boards were offered and I ran into a VERY RUDE staff of Waikiki Shore Services. He deliberately took the rented umbrella that Stoke drift provided. Staff never apologized.
    Awesome class & experience!
    Carlis_D, Aug 2022
    Great teacher Dan! Great patience in showing techniques! Friendly staff and great perks with regards to renting additional gear or equipment!

    It was exciting for the kids. Our instructor was amazing. Not sure i got his name right. It was either cason or casey. He deserves a raise.
