Fantastic experience with North Shore Oahu Surf School. Kane was great with the family. Very supportive when out in the water. He and the other instructors really tried to create a positive surfing experience for our family. I definitely recommend this crew to anyone looking for a great family experience! Mahalo!

Incredible experience with our instructor Lawrence. He was on time, professional, super patient with beginner surfers and encouraging the entire lesson. Knowledgeable with 25 years of surfing would highly recommend taking a surf lesson with Lawrence.

Great guys. Explanations on how to surf were clear and easy to understand. They were super patient with my boys and very encouraging. They were cognizant of my youngest and kept an extra eye on him. By the time we were done my two oldest were consistently riding waves in.

One of the best experiences I’ve had while on my trip to the island.

My 17 and 12 year old sisters and I went out once with Kekai and ended up going back a day later because of how much we enjoyed it the first time. Kekai was friendly, helpful, patient, and encouraging as it was our first time ever surfing. He met up with us at the most perfect secluded beach with the best waves. Overall we had a wonderful 2 hours in what basically felt like a private lesson because it was just us and keiki the entire time. I would 100 percent go back to this surfing company and recommend to family and friends.

Kala was our instructor and the person I spoke with over the phone when booking the reservation for my wife, older teen daughter and myself. My wife is not comfortable in the ocean and really needed convincing to join us. From the start, Kala was calm, thorough and clear in teaching us the basics from paddling to standing, and turning. He explained that we have plenty of time and there's no need to rush -- just follow the basics and it'll cover 90% of the job. Before paddling out he explained the safety paths for returning to the after catching a wave in to avoid colliding with oncoming surfers. In between sets, he continued with tips on what needed correction. My daughter was standing on the first wave, and within a few waves so too was my wife. It was a good time. I'd highly recommend this school and plan on booking again on our next visit.

Mahalo Kala!

Our instructor Kala was awesome! My family and I (age 13, 17 and 46) took lessons and we were able to surf very quickly with all of us having little to no prior experience. Kala was very good at preparing us by providing instructions and practice before we got in the water so we felt comfortable. He was encouraging and friendly. Kala was very knowledgeable about surfing and safety. I highly recommend his company and I would use North Shore Oahu Surf School again for future lessons. We had a beautiful and fun time surfing!

We had a wonderful time. It was a family experience we had adults and little ones (6 years) and all of us loved it. Kala was amazing and made you feel so comfortable. He took great care of us and took his time with all of us. I 100% recommended them, and we will for sure do it again when we come back. It was a great experience between Kala and Steven I would not go anywhere else.

Brett & Fielding had all the gear set up for us at a calmer surf bay near Haleiwa (ha-lee-va). We got the basics on shore & we to to the water to test. Learned so much! Surfing is like fishing, it’s a waiting& hoping game. We had a blast taking turns & caught waves each of us - such an incredible feeling for the wave to pull ur board! Brett is a master at spotting which waves to try & setting you up with the timing to paddle & stand. It takes practice like anything so keep that in mind ;)
