    We caught a wave!

    We had Jacob as our instructor and he was phenomenal. He taught us all the basics we needed to know to be able to surf. It was myself, my fiancé, my 15 year old daughter and we all caught a wave and had a great time. He was so informative about the water and waves and I would definitely recommend booking with him. We had such a great experience.

    Great one on one experience. Jason was super supportive and helped me catch the wave everytime (and did most of the paddle 😂😂). Super individual experience. Jason really adjusted his help level and the degree of difficulty through out the session to give me the best experience!

    Jacob (instructor) was very flexible and informative. My mom doesn’t speak English so we knew it wasn’t going to be very easy but he was being so patient with us, and we actually felt safe even with the language barrier.

    Jacob was responsive when messaging about the meeting area. Informative without taking too long to get straight out there and try it. Calm and even paddled me out to the waves when I was tired. Good experience.

    Had a fantastic time surfing with Jacob at Puaena Point! After 10 minutes walking through the basics on the sand, Jacob helps you put everything into practice, helping you catch wave after wave. Can’t recommend this experience anymore.

    Our instructor was late and just seemed like he just woke up. Was not very energized. It was fun because of the waves but the instructors energy and tardiness was not very satisfactory

    Our instructor (Micah) kept our spirits up & it helped boost our confidence & will to learn despite the unfavorable weather conditions. Highly recommend. I'd go for another lesson if I had more time in Hawaii.

    Surfing Lessons on the North Shore, Oahu

    I went to the lesson by myself and felt a little apprehensive about being alone in an unfamiliar place. However, as soon as I notified them that I had arrived, I received an immediate response and the instructor came right after I received the response. She was the most patient and encouraging instructor EVER. She gave me a thorough lesson on the shore and a safety brief (which was greatly appreciated). What impressed me the most was every time I wanted to quit, she encouraged me and validated that I was brave enough to get out in the rough ocean especially since I am over 50 y/o. Because she was so encouraging, I kept trying and I never felt defeated. For me, her empathy and expertise gave me the opportunity to cross surfing off my bucket list after waiting 30 yrs. to do it. I left the lesson feeling awesome about myself.💗

    My sister and I came to Oahu for our first time just the two of us. She had some surfing experience but I did not. I didn't have any high expectations for myself as a beginner to actually stand up and ride a wave. Our instructor Jacob was excellent, kind and patient with us and his instructions were clear and concise. I ended up catching quite a few waves during our lesson! I highly recommend this as an activity despite your skill level. As a fun bonus, my sister had a random encounter with a sea turtle while waiting for a wave. Such a cool experience!

    Jacob was great! He worked so well with our 5 year old who was hesitant to go out but then didn’t want to stop surfing! He also accommodated our family since we had a baby and had to switch out. Thank you for an incredible experience!
