Spent a week in the Big Island and signed a group of us to go surfing with Barry. Most of us were novice but Barry and his instructors made us all feel comfortable and confident. Some of us, me included, only got up for a...More
I want to start by saying Bear is the most kind and giving person, he radiates Aloha and positivity. Taking surfing lessons with Bear is so much more than a tourist experience, you will not be stuck in a large group of 10+ people getting...More
My daughter and I came to visit the Big Island for 3 weeks in June 2018. My mother is a resident of Hawaii and I grow up there. Left years ago. I wanted my daughter to experience the true feeling of Aloha and time with...More
WHATEVER YOU DO DON'T MISS TAKING A LESSON WITH BEAR and his crew(Jeff and Jay)! They ARE EVERYTHING you imagine HAWAIIAN spirit of "OHANA" (family) to be. Kind, patient, attentive, calm and best of all - they KNOW what they are doing! My son never...More
Firstly, I would like to say that my wife Cindy and I are not the best swimmers out there; we’re pretty bad, actually. However, that did not stop us from wanting to learn how to surf. Right from the get-go, I told Barry abour our...More
Surfer Bear was absolutely awesome! First time trying surfing and they had me up and surfing 🏄 within half and hour.... a few rides, some spills, great instructors and totally worth it. They provide everything for you, just show up with a good attitude and...More
Awesome experience with Jay and Barry. Very good instructors, my son was getting up on almost every attempt. Jay was very mindful of safety as well, especially when it got crowded with other surfers. Going early (as they recommended) was very nice. Great instruction and...More
I can honestly say from the bottom of my heart, that Barry and Jay are by far the best teachers on the island! They took our small group of 4 and showed us how to catch some awesome waves in less than 2 hours. They...More
We'd been satisfied with only one ride on the waves, but with Surfer bear's guidance, support and enthusiasm we stood on our boards within 15 minutes and rode more (small?) waves than imagined possible.
Off course we fell off our boards aplenty, crashed miserably and/or...More
My 63 year wait to surf in HI was well worth it! It was a beautiful morning for my first surf and Barry, the Surfing Bear chose a great time to go out for good waves based on the tidal times. Barry's instruction had me...More

Hi , if you tell him he will bring every stuff for surfing. But as other told a vest is not comfortable. The instructors are very caring. They are really great, they follow you in everything, are always focused on you and make you really comfortable in the water.
The location is very easy too. Hope your kid will enjoy the surf. It's a great experience.
