  • Amazing experience, made my holiday the best one ever! I had only ever had one surfing lesson in my life before, so started as a complete rookie. By lesson three I was able to stay on the board most.....  more »

  • I’ve been going to Surf HNL for years. Without exception these guys know what they are doing and are absolutely fantastic with kids. Quite honestly, they’re also great with big “kids” like me and have shared helpful pointers that have improved my own surfing. They are incredibly accommodating and are flexible as situations constantly change with family life. My oldest son was initially apprehensive about paddling out but the Surf HNL team was so patient and helpful that he quickly overcame his fears. He initially rode tandem with an instructor and eventually learned to surf on his own board. Jon has worked with my son and daughter for years and it’s been fun to build the teacher/student relationship over time. This past trip my son also worked with Chase at the Eisenhower beach location and had a blast. I can’t recommend these guys enough as they are terrific instructors and just good down-to-earth people. They teach at two locations: a break called Concessions at Magic Island near Ala Moana shopping center and Eisenhower beach which is close to Ko’olina. Both locations are fun. Ask for Raynette to book a lesson or even a weeklong set of lessons like what we normally do. You and your family will be thrilled!
  • We went to this location looking for another surf school that we discovered is now closed. SurfHnl was so nice and accommodating. They took my two girls, ages 10 and 16, as a walk up. They had the best experience. I wish we had done it earlier in our visit so we could do it twice. You have to option at the end to purchase the photos and video that they took during the lesson. The instructors work very hard to give each person plenty of attention. The younger kids are 1 on 1 riding tandem with the instructor. The guy with my oldest daughter would bounce between two students. It works out fine, because while one student is riding a wave in, he’s helping the others out in the water get ready to catch a wave. I would recommend this surf school, and we would definitely do it again.
