Friends had been here 2 years ago and recommended Hawaiian Surfing Adventures. We scheduled a semi-private lesson for the 3 of us with 1 instructor. We took a 9 am lesson time... More

Mitchey did a great job with my 8 year old! I would like to go back and take the camp myself! Great, safe location to learn to surf. Great instructors.

First time surfing at the age of 42. I went with my wife and was pretty sure I wasn't going to be able to get up on the board. I am 6'7 and 230 pounds so they gave me the "cadillac" which is an extra wide and long board. After a 30 minute beach lesson out of the water, we... More

Everyone was so friendly and really cared about our surfing experience right from Lynn, the booking agent, to Evan & Yuam on the water, and even Uncle Mitch driving us down to the beach and giving us dry land advice. We loved surfing with HSA and can't wait to come back and keep progressing.

We booked on the phone. We got a lesson the next day. The price was reasonable. The office was easy to fine with ample parking. The staff were helpful and friendly. Each participant gets a rashguard top and is shuttled to the beach. The surfing teacher (Yom) was attentive, helpful and a great teacher. All four participants got up and... More

We gave my 14 year old twins surfing lessons here. We appreciated Lisa who gave us all the information we needed and helped us pick the right kind of lessons convenient to our schedule. Luan was a kind and patient instructor. Gave the kids a wonderful experience, got them up on the surfboards, and watched them in the water. We... More

We had 2 days of surfing with Hawaiian Surfing Adventures: one for the guys and one for the girls. Our teacher, Yam, was great! He had all of us up and surfing right away. Hanalei Bay is the perfect place to learn to surf: the waves aren't too big and break near enough to shore that the swim back to... More
