Guides made it very easy to learn to surf...Tobias was helpful and encouraging...waves got small near the end but that's mother nature.

The people at Surf Shark was very helpful and confident that we (Family of 4) all can surf after this class. And they were right. They teach a technique that help to do this almost at first try. They take some pictures and you can buy those after the class. Over priced in my opinion, but is up to you if you want the pictures.

Our instructor was personable, clearly an expert, efficient, and most charmingly, careful to ensure EVERYONE had the best experience, no matter their age and capability. Highly recommend.

More of talking and less of teaching . Yes they have a good coaches but need to understand when there are kids with you they have no patience in just standing in water waiting for you to finish chatting with other people around . They say it’s 2 hours but it’s not.

First time surfing for all and we all successfully got up. Fabulous instructions. Great bonding, Teen daughters had a blast. Photos available to buy as an add-on, very professional. Highly recommend this activity for fairly active families.

Foolproof surfing

Ok, I can see why they guarantee that you will stand. They use HUGE surfboards, 12ft, big enough to paddle board on. There’s no way that you wouldn’t be able to surf that. It was way too easy, but it gave me time to practice my form and learn to turn and catch my own wave. It was over all good. Uh and I think the surf instructor was drinking or smoking weed before class because he was quite stinky and kept forgetting stuff. But he was a nice guy and did his job of pushing everyone at the waves. He even pushed another girl who came with her own surfboard. Not sure if he was being nice or forgot she wasn’t in the class. LOL. If you want a for sure surf, you can try this course.

Okay Experience

Friendly and supportive crew. The surf area was right in front of the shop, however one need to watch out for the rocks in the water. Not a lot of instructions for beginners were given.

So fun! Tobias was very helpful. I took a beginner's class once before in Costa Rica, but I was able to stay on the board longer with Tobias's help. If I can do it, anyone can!

Amazing but rocky landing

From start to finish a great experience. There were unfortunately a number of beginners all congregated in the same area and because we were shallow we were hitting a number of rocks when falling. Instructors were fabulous.

Great day surfing!

Four of our family, including kids aged 8 and 17, signed up for lessons near Kehei. They equipped us with swim shirts (chafing) and boards. Though some of us were a little apprehensive, the confidence of the staff and the small waves eased any concerns. All of us got up, and the kids got up on their first try, all thanks to pointers and helpful pushes from Mike. We had a great time and the 2 hour lesson was there perfect amount of time!
