They were up on the boards right away and catching waves for and hour and a half. He kept it fun and entertaining for them.... More

The surf instructors were great teachers. My kids had a lot of fun learning how to surf. We can't wait to do it again.

Waves at Kihei is a great beginner beach! My wife and I caught our first waves here in our 50's. 🏄🏄‍♀️ Kaylin had fun and we got some great pictures. Aloha!

After googling a bunch of surfing companies, we came across Waves Hawaii Surf School and they were awesome. My wife and I both ski/snowboard/wakeboard but have never been surfing. We did the semi-private lesson, and Ashley and her co-worker were super patient and gave us great coaching cues. We both got up on our first or second try and the... More

Ashley was excellent with my ten year old who had taken surf lessons before in San Diego. She was encouraging and motivating which allowed my daughter to flourish under her instructions. She was even doing some tricks! Thank you Ashley!!

I went with the three day surf progression, I'm loving every moment of it and I'm only on day two!!! First day was the main learning experience but was able to stand up and keep my balance, second day was even better, from beginning to end was able to stand and ride the waves for all it had. Really looking... More

Our instructor, Ashley, was great. Friendly, professional, patient and knowledgable. We started out on surf boards set up on foam rollers in the park so we could get used to the feeling. It was a great idea. We then moved so small waves, and Ashley would give us a push to get on top of them.....I got up on my... More

My girlfriend and her best friend joined me for a private surf lesson and ALL of us were up and surfing in no time! The amount of time and support they afforded us was amazing! Matthew, Eddie and Ashley were incredible instructors and supporters! We loved the photos that we purchased after our 2 hour lesson!
