North Shore Surf Girls are amazing surf instructors. After having had a negative experience (poor instruction with sexist undertones) with another company, I called up North Shore Surf Girls and set up a lesson. Aimee provided great service (and a little bit of free therapy as I tried to shake the first experience) over the phone and then was also our instructor. My husband and I loved the depth of instruction and their company's process for helping people stand up. Unlike our other experience that involved a lot of rapid movements, their method is calm and intentional and above all, works! I went from not standing up at all to standing up on almost every wave (at least briefly). I also liked the vibe that standing up isn't everything. It's ok to just have fun, enjoy the ocean, and go at your own speed. Aimee gave great feedback that felt kind and neutral (i.e. not like a drill sergeant and also not coddling or pandering). You could tell that Aimee loves helping people get into the sport and what we overheard from their other lesson going on next to us, she's not alone in that. I would (and hopefully will) go back for another lesson and would recommend others to check them out too!

Caroll and her fantastic team at North Shore Surf Girls really went out of their way to make our group of 5 kids aged between 4 & 12 have a sublime, once in a lifetime experience. All of our group were beginners and by the end each had many successful stand up rides. Caroll and the team were brilliant at teaching and making us feel confident. She expertly navigated the crazy storm which was happening at the time and rescheduled based on her instinct for local weather and swell patterns. It was a genius move and worked perfectly. Can't recommend enough!

The staff was awesome here! Everyone was so helpful and made the experience so enjoyable. They were patient and knowledgeable but also knew how to have a good time with us. There is a lot more to surfing than we thought but by the end of it the crew had us up and moving. It was such a cool experience and a huge plus is their flexibility to switch beaches. They did ask us to move our reservation but our time on the island was very booked and they were still very accommodating even when we couldn't switch our time. Definitely would recommend learning to surf with this team, we had a great day! Nice and close to all the food trucks and the fun and beauty of the North Shore
We would have loved if they were able to take pictures of us on the boards, totally would have purchased those!

If you’re looking to take a surf lesson look no further than North Shore Surf Girls. The instructor was awesome and thanks to their technique I shocked myself and caught more waves than I ever expected on my first time surfing. Would totally book again should I find myself back in Oahu.

Cora and Carol were fabulous! None of us had surfed before. They took us through an on land tutorial and then escorted out to the waves. Through expert instruction and a lot of encouragement, every single one of us were up on a board and riding a wave! The surf was perfect for beginners. We felt safe and had such a great time.

Had a very dangerous/bad experience with NSSG. I did a group lesson with them. While we were waiting for the wave, a big wave came and the instructor let go her surfboard and the surfboard/fins slammed right on my head. Fins are sharp and could've cut my head open. I was wearing a low profile helmet so I was ok fortunately, but I can't imagine what would happen if I weren't wearing a helmet. This was not my first time surfing and Ive gotten hit in the head before so I always wear a helmet when I am surfing. Any surfer should know not to let their board go especially there's someone close by. I still can't believe the instructor let go her board and hit me in the head. The worst part was that she did not even apologize.

They advertise 4:1 student to instructor ratio, but my group ended up to be 12 people. Yes there were 4 instructors but two were just waiting with us and we had to wait to get pushed one by one. After the incident, I didn't feel safe and the wait was worth it so I just left the class.

Our family of 5 booked a private family surf lesson with Carol and Kai from North Shore Surf Girls yesterday. The whole family was able to get a lot of waves in and thought said it was a must do activity. Carol and Kai were thorough in explaining what to do and were fun to hang out with. We all recommend surfing lessons with North Shore Surf Girls!

My Wife and I had a great lesson with McCall. She was helpful getting us both up on waves and continued to coach us throughout the lesson. I’ve surfed before and I felt like I still learned a lot and my wife has surfed a little bit before, but definitely felt like this was the best lesson she has had. McCall was also very friendly and gave us some good tips for other things to do on the North Shore. We’d both recommend North Shore Surf Girls!

We had surfers with a very large range of experience levels. Not only did they accommodate, but were able to help each of us have a unique experience. They made us feel safe in the water and taught us much more than any less than any of us had had prior. They also went above and beyond teaching our children about safety, marine life and the ocean in general.

11/10, highly recommend my favorite North Shore Surf Girl, Aimee. She made me feel SAFE, which is almost impossible when you are terrified of the ocean and everything under and around you. She is knowledgeable, encouraging, patient, and so funny!! With her help, I caught tons of waves and had the best time!!! I can’t wait to surf with Aimee again, you will love her too ❤️🤙🏼
