I’ve always wanted to try surfing but never braved it until this trip. My Instructor was patient and upbeat even though I was scared to even try? He kept right next to me the whole time and the pictures they took turned out great. I loved it and am amazed I stood up several times my first time on a board.

We enjoyed this experience and are glad we gave it a try. Our guide was very knowledgeable about surfing and did an excellent job helping us get comfortable on the board. She gave us many opportunities to try and stand up on the board and helped us get back into formation to catch the waves. Part of the fun was watching the other surfers on the water who were amazing. We recommend this tour to anyone who wants to learn how to surf and experience it at the North Shore!

The instructors were very patient and helpful. An excellent activity for a first time surfer. The place was a little hard to find if you utilize the address directions on your navigation app. An excellent adventure

Would give this 10 Stars!!!! It was the best day ever!!! Our teacher Alexis was excellent! We were both able to stand and surf the waves immediately! Great remote location on the North Shore where they hold the lesson and easy to find. They were very friendly and gave us pointers to get better. It was for sure the highlight of our trip!

Wenn man auf Hawaii ist muss man surfen, dachten wir uns. Gesagt - Getan! Wir haben diesen Kurs gebucht und es hat sich die einen Riesenspass gemacht. Man bekommt eine kurze Einführung in die Grundlagen des Surfens und schon geht es ab. Mit Hilfe der Instruktionen haben wir alle die Wellen zumindest einmal stehend geritten. 2 Stunden sind mehr als genug, denn das Ganze ist auch für Ungebübte recht anstrengend. Am Ende es Kurses kann man Bilder von sich für ca. 75 USD als CD erwerben, muss aber nicht! Die Lehrer waren total nett und konnten einem alles gut erklären! Gutes Anfängergebiet. Gerne wieder :-
