Instructors were the best!! Outfitting you with surf socks and water shirt, giving you land instructions with a board, taking you out to surf site. Biggest help was telling you what waves to go on which was a big part of actually being able to surf. Actually caught over 20+ waves and was able to stand and surf the wake.... More

Dominic and his crew were very helpful, but a little difficult to track down! You won't find Kona Surf Co in the tourist brochures and flyers. Fortunately, you just need to find their website, book your time on line, and get ready to surf! Located south on Ali'i Dive, the Kona Surf Co van appears every morning at Kahaluu Beach.... More

Had originally signed up for a 1x1 surf lesson for my daughter. On the day she went for her lesson, there were too many surfers and the wave conditions were not too great. Thankfully we were staying in the island a few more days and she got a free 2 hr surf lesson. Great and super friendly instructors. Couldn't ask... More

I booked a semi-private lesson for my husband and I on the day of his birthday. The semi-private or private lessons are best as you get a lot of time with your instructor and many waves! We had Charles as instructor and he was fantastic! My husband had surfed before and had lessons in other countries and told me 'we'll... More

I had a great experience with Kona Surf Company. I've surfed before and Austin was there to help me quickly get the cobwebs off and get me out back! I would recommend to all my friends planning a trip to Hawaii. Mahalo Austin!

I turned 50 today 10/17/16 and I have always wanted to surf. This company and the two men that took my sister and I out to learn to surf were GREAT!!! It was a perfect day and I learned to surf and road the waves several times. These guys were patient, helpful, fun and professional. I would highly recommend this... More

I was a bit leary when my granddaughter said she wanted to learn to surf. Dom and Austin put me right at ease. Austin did a great job working with her, and yes she succeeded at getting up on the board and riding the waves. Kahaluu Beach has great waves for beginners.

Steph and Steven made my 11,13 and 15 year old so comfortable and confident that I wasn't surprised when the kids had almost instant surfing success. It was like being with long time cool friends. The surfing conditions were great for them. Steph and Andrew have instilled an instant love of surfing for 3 kids from Arkansas. I regret not... More
