    Had first surfing lesson and staff was patient, and knowledgeable. I managed to stand up 4 times to surf which was way beyond my expectation. I highly recommend these guys for beginners. check in was easy and they supplied everything including rash guard and you get a discount if you want to rent a board.

    Britt was our instructor. Excellent communicator and disposition for learning. All 4 of us had various experience and he tailored his comments to each resulting in everyone having great rides. Excellent day.

    I had a private lesson and the instructor was more worried about getting back to the beach so we didnt miss the shuttle (It would have been an 8 minute walk to the shop) than catching waves. The waves were not great and he was knowledgeable.

    My husband and I had an awesome time learning how to surf with our instructor, Yom. He was ever-so-patient especially with me--I'm uncoordinated and have zero balance, but miracle of all miracles, he got me up on at least a handful of waves!

    Great way to learn to surf in a easy beach. Instructor Luan was really informative and patient. A very good person to learn from. The other people at Hawaii surf adventures were laid back and easy to work with! I would recommend.
