  • My sister-in-law is so happy that he can stand in a short time and enjoy the waves, and we look forward to the next time we light Up in Hawaii and learn more about the tricks of the waves here!

  • We reserved a semi-private surfing lesson for three of our family members in late June. I reserved online the day before and we showed up at their location (easy to find!) about 15 minutes early. Chec...  more »

  • Great teaching! First 20 minutes on ground is a great help to get ready and prepared, useful tips and tricks, then in the water! Great chats and help on how to take and get up on the wave! Love it now, gonna ride some waves now! ;)
  • Aloha! Here to spread the gospel! I booked Gone Surfing after researching the different breaks in the area and saw they go to Populars ("Pops") which has really long mellow rights. Sounded perfect for learning. The paddle out was about 3 times farther than the other schools so the waves are actual waves! I go to the spot in the directions a little early, pop a seat, and after a few minutes a guy walks up and asks if I'm there for surf lessons. We chat for a sec about some stuff, I tell him I do a lot of wake surfing and paddle boarding, and how I predict it will be different (like my shoulders likely dying in 30 minutes, the art of finding waves, and turning with weight shift instead of leaning). He took that info, shortened the land demo, and popped us out on some boards. My jaw hurt so bad after that two hour lesson because I had the biggest smile on my face the entire time! I'm telling you, it was freaking awesome. My instructor, Caz, had all the strength in the world to tow my kook shoulders around and would give me an extra little push to make sure I'd catch each wave. It was exactly what I was looking for. I went back this morning to rent a board and ended up catching some waves with Caz again while he was out for his morning bday surf. That guy just lives it. I've only been here for two days and this is already my favorite vacation ever. First time in Honolulu and I definitely want to come back. Big shout out to Gone Surfing and a huge shout out to Caz for making some seriously memorable moments! Sean (sp?), another instructor who was out while we were out too, was also incredibly friendly and helpful. This is definitely the highlight of the trip and I can't wait to go rent a board from them again. Mahalo! Dave
