I had a great time learning to surf! Kevin was my instructor and he did a great job at explaining the basics as well as answering other question you might have! I loved making small talk while we waited for the next wave as well as before and after the lessons. The equipment was well maintained and the location was fantastic, they also take photos that you can purchase after to show everyone you new found skill! They also have some sweet merchandise you can purchase as well, I had to snag a sweet hat! I appreciate the fantastic time and I 10/10 would recommend to anyone who wants to learn to shred some waves!! Mahalo
About 7 years ago, I tried a surf lesson in Australia and never got up on the board. With Kevin's help, I rode an entire wave in on my first attempt! According to Kevin, a state champion surfer, the area where these lessons are held is one of the best in the world. My friend, my dad, and I were all shocked by how many waves were able to ride - we each rode at least 6 full waves. If you have 3 or more in your party, I highly recommend the semi-private. It was the best semi-private rate I could find on the island (at least among the top rated companies). I also highly recommend Kevin! We splurged on getting pictures ($25/person) and they were definitely worth it if you have the means to do so.
