Edison & Jenni were accomodating from the beginning. I made last minute plans to travel to the North Shore around the holiday season (busy time due to winter swells/vacations). While Edison & Jenni's camp accomodations were full, I still wanted to attend surf camp. They were nice enough to recommend me to stay with one of their good friends (who... More

I stayed there for one week doing the surfcamp and it was awesome. The accomodation is so beautiful! Really good standard including a nice view of the river, a jacuzzi and a hammock to relax in and it's only a ten-minute walk to Haleiwa, where you can eat and shop a little. That little town has so much charm! I... More

When I called to complain Edison lied, I threatened to cancel the rest of the lessons. Offered me a complimentary lesson since he was lying, which I reluctantly accepted.... More

It's already 3 times that I have been to this surfcamp and I could never ask for anything better! All teachers are amazing surfers and they will get you on your first wave with simple instructions. The place to stay (Jenni's) is nothing short of a paradise (includes a jaccuzzi at the terrace with a breath-taking view) and besides surfing,... More

He made sure we found the best location with the appropriate waves for our inexperience east coast family. Although I never could get up on the board, Edison was patient... More

I just came back from this 4-day hawaii surfing lesson with all the satisfaction of my dream realization. I have to owe my truly hearted thanks to Edision, who aided me with the conquest to my fear to the ocean and also with the enjoyment of standing on the surfing board, being chased by waves. Following Edison's instruction, surfing dream... More

I have spend a full week with Edison and Jenni. The accommodations are in super conditions and are located right behind Haleiwa on a small river. The house and backyard are just lovely and can be used for relaxing or maybe for a trip Stand-Up paddling on the river into the ocean. The main reason to come was to learn... More
