      Growth up kids had a great experience. Excellent coach makes a big difference in the beginner surfers
      Viator major scam, anyone...
      Angela_G, July 2022
      Viator major scam, anyone can sign up there business. The old co worker is still on the cover of his advertising, he said he didn’t even know he was still using his face for advertising The instructor doesn’t even have a legit place to run his business. The actual surf renting people say he shouldn't even be there.
      Fun first time family surfing!
      LAUREN_D, July 2022
      As a family this was out first experience surfing. Our instructor Paolo was on time and ready to get the lesson started. My son (age 13) and I had a quick beach lesson and then hit the waves. In 30 minutes we were able to ride about 6 waves each. The next 30 minutes my 10 year old daughter had the opportunity to spend 1:1 time learning to surf she was up and riding waves within a few tries! Younder kids definitely need the 1:1. 30-60 minutes is plenty of time to get the technique and enjoy the surfing experience in a beautiful spot on Waikiki Beach!

      The instructors was fantastic. Boys had wonderful time Would recommend to anyone to try these guys out
      Awesome experience!

      Addison was great and patient with the boys. They loved it and were able to pick it up so fast. They didn’t want to stop when the lesson was over.
      Fun, chill surf instruction - 5 star!
      Charles_R, June 2022
      Paulo was awesome! We had a great time, the guys were super friendly and informative. They led us out to the best spot, and were patient working us through the steps to get up and get going. It was a really fun experience, and they were the best!

      Had an amazing time surfing, because the water was so shallow, the fear of falling into deep open water was non existent. Would recommend a rash guard - a long sleeve surfing shirt (ABC stores should have some nice ones for affordable prices)
      Must do
      Kim_P, Apr 2022
      The instruction was quick and concise. We were in the water and on the surf boards within the first 15 minutes of the session, leaving us with plenty of time to have a go at standing up on the board to surf the wave. So much fun!
      Highlight of our Vacation!

      My husband and my three teens had a great experience in their small group lesson with Paolo! He clearly explained the steps while on land, watched them practice it, and then took them out in the water. He helped each one to successfully stand up on the board several times. My family had so much fun with the lesson and had a wonderful time with Paolo! The other workers who helped with gathering gear and getting everyone organized were also very kind and helpful.

      Max was awesome and a great instructor. He progressed us quickly and taught us more as he thought we were ready.
      Family surf lesson
      Kathryn_R, Dec 2021
      Great time! Hubby & I (50s), 21 yr old son & teen daughter did as our first surf lesson! They made it seem much easier than I expected. Both kids rode waves all the way in & all four of us “got up” right away with their assistance. Highly recommend!
      Great surfing lesson!
      Joselyn_A, Oct 2021
      Our two coaches were excellent. Really impressed by their work, I learned the surfing basics and had a ton of fun. Definitely recommend.
      Best Day Ever
      Sydney_M, July 2021
      If I could give 100 stars, I would! My daughters (15, 17, 19 and 20) had a blast with Paulo. My daughters had a serious conversation afterwards as to whether this is the best thing in Oahu or the best in the world. I think they settled on the latter. Paulo and team were efficient and clear in their instructions and they had great conversation with my girls. They laughed, joked and yes... they all got up on the first or second try. My youngest is certain that she wants to buy a surfboard now... but we live in Kansas City ;) We probably ought to just come back again some day... which we definitely will. I recommend you do too!!!
      Riding the Waves is Easy
      KevinR_S, July 2021
      Paulo was amazing! We had a blast trying to catch the waves but, watching out 12 year old finally stand up and do it was our highlight! We would absolutely recommend this excursion.
      We learned to love to surf
      Nikelle_J, July 2021
      My four girls picked up the fun and basics of surfing through this lesson. They were nervous but ended up loving it with the teaching and want to do it more on our trip. So this build confidence and love for surfing!
      2 months of practice at home with balance boards, waisted.
      Douglas_H, July 2021
      As me and the kids were dressed and headed to are long awaited surf lesson, got a call telling us it was cancelled due to injury. I understand things happen but kids were devastated. No alternative was offered, just a refund. We were unable to rebook.
      Response from Host, Aug 2021
      I'm very sorry but it happens sometimes. We called everyone and explained the situation. I hope your understanding.
      fun all around
      Samantha_P, July 2021
      Excellent tutoring - all 3 of my girls caught multiple waves. They enjoyed it so much that my youngest now wants to move to Hawaii for college so she can board. Lol. I would recommend booking before 11am as the beach gets EXTREMELY crowded!

      Paulo is great instructor. Excellent surf boards for students, outstanding character, and very experienced surfer. I would highly recommend .
      Great surfing lessons and instructor
      Haley_B, June 2021
      Three teens participated in the surf lessons. All enjoyed the instructor and were able to catch waves. Professional, prompt and a pleasure is how I would describe this.
