Visited Oahu with a big family... 18 of us! The teens and young adults... and 1 adult went surfing for the first time. Suzy was a pleasure to talk to and very patient. Her assistants were also very friendly and mindful of our young ones. All the participants were able to stand on their surfboards at least once! The price... More

Suzy was amazing. She was a kind and highly experienced professional who made our beginners surfing experience awesome. We were surfing basically straight away! Her dogs were also super friendly and cute which really topped off the experience. Highly recommend!! From two happy Australians :)

We live in Honolulu and often have visitors that have never surfed before. We always use Suzy and her instructors because they are absolutely the best! They are patient and fun for the young kids and good enough to get our older, out-of-shape friends up and surfing every time. We have never had a bad session, even when Suzy was... More

I had Lindsey as an instructor and she was awesome! I felt really comfortable with her right away and we had a few good conversations about swimming and living in Hawaii. I'm a lifeguard and swim instructor back home but don't have a lot of experience with the ocean and have never surfed so I was a bit nervous. She... More

I was up and surfing very quickly. Suzy and Rusty were excellent teachers that encouraged me to go for it and I felt very comfortable. Learned a lot. Great time.

So, I never write reviews, but I had to express my appreciation for the excellent experience I had. Rusty was my instructor and he was patient and positive. The location was perfect. The waves seemed to last forever, so you didn't have to get in a huge rush to stand up. I wouldn't say I am in the best shape,... More

My family and I had a blast with Sunset Suzy! She was very conscientious in wanting to make sure that everyone was safe and had many chances to surf, which was especially important with our younger daughters. We were all up surfing pretty quickly, and enjoyed the experience immensely. A must-do!

Earlier this week, husband & I tried out Stand Up Paddle boarding with Chance along a calm river in Haleiwa earlier this week. He pointed out the beautiful, old sea turtles all along the river way. Then today we surfed with Suzy & Lindsey at great spot known by the locals. Hubby & I are returning customers. Four years ago,... More

My friend and I have never surfed before and were really looking forward to giving it a shot while visiting Oahu. Neither of us necessarily thought we'd stand up but to our surprise we both got up on our first tries! Suzy is super warm and friendly and was very encouraging the entire time. I highly recommend getting lessons from... More
