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.

They were amazing! The whole family got up and surfed! They were amazing with our 10 and 12 yr old boys as well as our 60 yr old mother. The best!

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

A wonderful experience for the kids and adults alike. The waves were small and therefore very manageable. The smaller waves also made it easier to get out into the surf even for those of us who weren't very good swimmers. The instructors ensured that everyone had the opportunity to get up on the board multiple times with a modicum of... More

Our 2 kids and my cousins 2 teens had never surfed before, but all of them felt safe and comfortable out on the waves with their awesome instructors, Dom and Forest! They were standing up and surfing in no time! Our kids had Dom as their instructor and was fantastic... Patient, knowledgable, and an all around great guy! This was... More

My daughter (7, almost 8) had a private lesson. She is super shy and was scared to go. Forrest and Mamma Ky were amazingly patient. Eventually she got up her courage and had an amazing time tandem surfing with Forrest. We went from tears at the start to a grin from ear to ear by the end. She said her... More

I got lessons with my two cousins and family friend. We started with Andrew who showed us the technique on land. He was very fun and helpful. Ivan was our main instructor in the water and was very informative and constructive. While we were out on the water there were many instructors who also offered coaching- Austin and Dom (the...

This was our very first time surfing. Our instructor Andrew gave clear instructions and made us feel confident even before we even got into the ocean. In the water he seemed genuinely excited when any of us caught a wave. There were two other instructors, Austin and Steve who would cheer us on and were very friendly and personable making... More
