Beautiful day on the waves !
, Jan 2022
My daughter (10) and I had a great time out surfing ! The waves were great and our instructors were very knowledgeable. My daughter had never been out before and she rode tandem. The instructor did great keeping her calm and making sure she got some great rides!
Great instructor

Trevor was my instructor and he was such a great teacher. I just wish he had modified the lesson to match my skills, as I was not really a beginner and got the hang of it right away. He was very encouraging though and a top bloke.

Aloha Sanpreet, THANK YOU for your review, and we agree, Trevor is pretty great! We are very fortunate to have him as part of our team. We'll be sure to incorporate your feedback for future lessons. Mahalo!
Awesome time

James and Jill were so inviting and great teachers. It was very fun and the water was beautiful. Great mix of a workout and a good time. There was a photographer surfing in front of you taking photos which was pretty cool too and the photos were a good price and came out great! 10/10 recommend.

Surfing with Kaz
, Nov 2019
First time surfing. Kaz explained things perfectly, so was able to get up easily, and he was also great to hang out with for a couple hours.
