Great day! - All staff were super friendly and helpful. The online check-in and online release forms made everything smooth. OG Nate was a great instructor and helped our daughter and friend stand up and surf numerous times during the lesson duration. They both can't wait to rent boards and surf all day in Hanalei Bay!. Thanks Hawaiian surf Team!

Sean was our instructor.... - Sean was our instructor. He did a great job instructing us. Both my husband and I were able to ride lots of waves. Even helped me figure out what side look right for me. The lady infront office was very nice too. Was able to borrow a wet suit top. We went back for rentals a few days later and she was supper honest with us. Told us storm was coming in and probably would be a waste of money to rent board.

Overcame the rain for a fun day! - The weather that day was absolutely awful, so I thought my daughters would hate it. QUITE THE OPPOSITE — they can’t stop raving about the experience and the teachers (Tapoo and Nate). They’ll never forget their day at Hanalei surfing!

Awesome surf lesson and experience - A wonderful experience from beginning to end! Everyone we interacted with from this family owned business was delightful, and our instructor was skilled as well as personable. The bay in which we surfed couldn’t have been more beautiful. Highly recommend!!!

You'll be surfing in no time - Went with Jack, had a great time and got up super quickly. Great spot, though it has many local beginners, but that can't be avoided in that bay. Great price for the time. Some instructions from Jack were a little hard to understand his intent, like when to come to him and when to do our own thing, and he missed some bits of information that were given only once I got toppled by a wave. Regardless of that though, great energy, local knowledge, friendly and informative. Stellar experience to end our trip on
