Our instructor the basics and had a good attitude throughout. I was able to ride some waves for the first time. The location and atmosphere was perfect.
Amazing time and would highly recommend!

Was an amazing experience, Suzy was so attentive and made sure we felt safe. We ended up going out to the higher waves and had a blast! Would highly recommend and the private lesson was top-notch as well.
Hawaii Supreme
Wendy_D, Nov 2022
Watching my daughter and grandson do something they have never done before and when they finished they said it was the highlight of their whole week spent in Hawaii was very satisfying. Suzy was the best and got these two up on their first and second try respectively. I would highly recommend this activity for everyone whether old or young.

We had an awesome experience with Zory! We both tried surfing for the first time, and she made the experience great! She was there guiding us and helping us catch each wave!
Great private lesson
Tanner_K, Aug 2022
It’s shallow water which was great for us newcomers. Andy did a great job teaching us and correcting our mistakes. It’s nice because it’s away from crowds and the waves started to pick up by the end of the lesson which made the last few more fun. The only thing I wish I knew beforehand was that this spot has a lot of rocks but if you don’t have equipment they provide reef shoes. Overall, it was plenty long and we were tired afterwards and had a lot of fun.
Fun experience!
Rebecca_K, July 2022
Suzy’s team was so friendly and awesome! Andy was the instructor and really gave great advice to the teens. Both were up and trying tricks in the first 30 minutes. Andy was knowledgeable and so kind. Jon, the photographer got great pictures! Matt was there too, instructing smaller kids and is so patient and friendly too! Suzy was easy to communicate with. Great experience. The teens LOVED it!!!
Surfs up!
Colin_G, July 2022
Suzy and her team were great working with my daughter and her friend on a semi private lesson. They had a blast and would definitely want to do it again. Suzy was also very accommodating with being a boogie board to occupy one of the other kids in the group not taking surf lessons. Thanks Suzy!!
So much fun!

It was fun. Zory was patient and very welcoming. Had a good lesson for beginners like me. Wish we had more time in Hawaii to take more lessons.
Great First Surfing Lesson experience
Chung_T, June 2022
We appreciate the owner keeping updating us the event’s situation before the lesson ( they kept checking if the wave is suitable for the lesson) and even notified us that we left our water bottle on the beach after the lesson and we already left the beach. The coaches are excellent in teaching. It was my 2 boys first surfing class and they learned how to surf during their lesson. Coaches are very friendly and teaches very well! It’s a great experience which inspires my sons to decide to continue this sport. We highly recommend this surf lessons on the North Shore of Oahu.
Awesome Experience!!!!
Brandon_B, June 2022
Our instructor, Zory, was great, she was friendly, patient and continually provided encouragement and feedback the entire time. The waves were not too big but big enough for us beginners. Beach, water and setting was amazing. Highly recommended!!!
Had a blast
Mali_P, Apr 2022
I had a blast with Ray for a one on one class. This was my second time surfing and I was able to stand up every time and had many long strikes. He was patient helpful and very encouraging. The other instructor Suzi was very friendly accommodating and patiently helped me setting up. Highly recommend!!
Mark_B, Apr 2022
My husband and I had never surged before and we had a really exhilarating experience!!! Would definitely book again!
THE best surf lesson you can get on the North Shore
Ryan_P, Jan 2022
Everything from the clear directions on how to meet up, to the enthusiasm we were greeted with, to the knowledgeable instructor who made this surf lesson fun and rewears makes booking with this group the best decision you can make when visiting Hawaii!
Matt gave us the experience of a lifetime!
Hailey_G, Jan 2022
Matt was AWESOME! From the very beginning he made us feel like his friends and we were just going out for a fun day of surfing. He knew the best spot to catch the perfect waves for beginners and had us standing up in no time! I couldn't have imagined a better first time surfing. Me and my husband will always remember this time as a cherished experience we will never forget. Would book again just to surf with Matt!
