I'm amazed that absolutely every review on every surf lesson or surf school in Hawaii is five stars. Maybe only the positive experiences are being written about. Anyway, here's a different perspective. My two hour lesson was on a Saturday in mid/late March at 8...More

John gave us great instruction and picked the perfect waves for us to ride into shore. We were first timers at 56 and 16, but we got up on the first wave. Private was the way to go for us.

Nick was very encouraging and calm with me, took me 4 times until I was able to stand. He would tell me exactly what I needed to change and do differently to be successful.
