Amazing instructor!!
, Oct 2021
Keel (our instructor) was amazing!!!.. it was my first time doing surfing, and he was very patient explaining the process , and the safety measures need it. I could tell he had a lot of experience and was able to share that with my daughter and I. I loved the fact that he made us feel like family, taking about how fun the activity was, and how much they care about the ocean!!!.. I just have to say THANK YOU Kele!!!

Bad deal all around
, Aug 2021
Showed up at 8:00 AM per schedule. The Address provided was a Marriott property….we checked in at desk and were told to proceed to back of property….and wait at grassy area. Went back to desk at 8:15 and were told the lessons did not start until 9:00 AM. Saw a surf lesson going on at the adjacent property …and waded out to speak with instructor and was told that they were a different surf school….really bad directions and we were given the wrong instructions by the Marriott property! All in all a bust! Requested a refund but so far no reply!

I'm sorry you had difficulty finding us. Unfortunately, you went to the wrong location. We are located at the Ko'a Kea Hotel right next to the Marriott. We share the same entrance so you were in the right area, you just needed to go 50 yards further. I'm also sorry that the Marriott staff miss directed you. A refund is in the process of going through. I hope this helps clear things up a bit.
Memorable Experience
, Jul 2021
My 18 year olds nephew and I had a wonderful time taking these lessons. Our instructor, Alika, was very personable and helpful. He gave great instruction to get us both standing, confident, and enjoying the experience. Keep in mind, you’ll be paddling yourself out after each wave and there are lots of people getting lessons at the same time, so it’s crowded. I recommend being confident in your swimming abilities beforehand. My nephew was knocked over a couple of times by others getting lessons, so you also have to go into it with a good sportsmanship attitude. With all that said, it was a fun and memorable experience that I would definitely recommend.

Great instructor! Kids 18, 17, 14 had a really fantastic experience! My husband and I got drinks while kids had lessons on land. Strawberry daquiri was the best! Would definitely do this again. Kids had a blast!
Great first surf experience

Alika was a great instructor. This was my first surf lesson and I was able to catch a wave my first try! My husband and I were both able to catch a few more waves with Alika’s coaching. Would definitely recommend!
Surf's Up!

Watching our daughter get up on the board for the first time was precious ☺️ She now appreciates the skill needed to surf. Mahalo!

Great instructor

Good knowledgeable instructor, good spot and fun time. Finding the location was a little tougher than it should be , we were late as a result but the instructor allowed extra time for us. It was well worth the money.

I'm sorry you had difficulty finding us, we are a little secluded. I'm glad that you enjoyed your surfing experience and had nice comments for your instructor. Mahalo.
