Surfing is my life, so when I signed my wife up for lessons with Mike and Lahiki, expectations were high! She stood up on her first (and 30 other) times, and, more importantly, loved her intro to surf culture as Lahiki and Mike treated her as a true local :) I even got some tips and pointers for my own...

I had an amazing lesson with Larry. He gave very clear personalized instructions that made surfing surprisingly easy and very fun. I would highly recommend Kona Mike's Surf Adventures.

Selected Kona Mike based on other reviews and the total non corporate feel they seemed to give off. Our group of 4 took the private lessons (highly recommend) and were paired up with Mike himself and another instructor Craig. These guys are great and as promised by the end of the two hours we were riding waves. Could not have... More

We recently took our daughters for a group surf lesson while on vacation in Kona. We booked a couple of weeks ahead, and the process was quick and easy. Compared to the price of most everything else we did in Hawaii, I felt like this was a great value at a little more than $30/hour which included everything they needed.... More

Our whole family, 2-nine year olds, a 13 year old and 40-something Mom and Dad, went surfing for the day with Mike and his crew. I was expecting to get water up my nose and sunburned - but I didn't expect to have so mush fun and to learn a new skill. Mike and his guides take all of the... More

My four teenagers and I had three lessons with Mike and Lahiki during our week stay on the Big Island. The waves were just the right size for us as beginners and we were even able to start catching a few waves by ourselves on the third day :) Mike and Lahiki were great teachers and were very entertaining while...

This was a fabulous adventure for the whole family. Lauren, Mike and Lihiki taught us all the skills we needed with confidence to surf. Without a doubt one the the Top things to do while in Hawaii. I was timid at first , really not sure if I wanted to do it.... But Mike and Lihiki made the experience so... More

My wife and I decided to book Kona Mike on our visit to The Big Island and having seen that almost every single review was"Excellent" we hardly bothered to look at other companies. We were both trying surfing for the first time and so we wanted to book someone who was rated very highly. We booked a semi-private lesson which... More

Mike is the best surf teacher on the islands! He taught my 14 yr old twins to surf the 6 footers with confidence within an hour! He spent time explaining how to read the waves, how to understand other surfers, how to respect the water, the sport, and each other.
