... we just didn't have the opportunity to do the lesson, only losing money. All I want to share is the very poor understanding of service and customer relations. Here is our story: we booked a lesson for two (via groupon if this matters to you) based on the good reviews. Trying to fix a date for the lesson was... More

Matt was a great teacher! Great for beginners for surfing, he made me feel safe and comfortable in the water. I would definitely do another lesson with him. His little dog Rabbit is very cute too.

Matt is a fantastic teacher. We were visiting Hawaii from Phoenix and were looking forward to spending a lot of time in the water. We thought it might be great to have our kids take surfing lessons. After reading some online reviews, we decided to go with Blue Rush Surfing School. My two girls had a lot of fun surfing... More

Solid basics taught and all about getting up on the big North Shore waves. More of an immediate run than a walk-then-run experience so I would suggest watching surfing tip videos online before heading out if you're new to the sport. Matt is a good patient teacher and really only cares about getting you up on the waves after he... More

It was really easy to find the meet-up location. Matt (the instructor) was very friendly and extremely informative. After a brief "how to get up on the board" lesson, we hit the water and had a great time. In total, the lesson lasted around 90min, but he was willing to go out a little longer, we were just too tired... More

Managed to get up twice so was stoked , reasonably priced for what your getting compared to other companies, well... More

My partner and I had so much fun! It was a whole new experience for us but with some great teaching, we managed to learn how to surf before we even hit the water. Thanks again guys, unforgettable experience!

For the price that they charge, to me, this is an awesome deal. Very minimal time spent on the beach, just a quick orientation and then straight into the water which is great and makes the most of your time. Matt is a great guy and its very laid back. We had an awesome time, my wife and I were... More

My family of 6 took surf lessons over 2 days. Gutu and Stephanie were patient, kind and knowledgable. They took me, my husband and 4 kids ages 15, 12, 12, and 6 and go everyone standing. Their patience with my crying 6 year old was beyond anything I expected. They were wonderful in every way and definitely one of the... More
