Bud was our captain and Nobi was our surf instructor for the day. Nobi is amazing surfer/teacher. He was able to teach us how to stand up on a board and ride a wave. First we did a land lesson and then went on the boat which was a 10min boat ride out to the wave/reef site. Bud had already... More

Dave was our captain and Nobi was our surf instructor for the day. Nobi is a very experienced surfer and was able to teach us how to stand on a board and ride a wave in simple terms.

My family and I were in Waikiki for my daughters Make a Wish trip and one of her wishes was to learn how to surf. Nobe was her instructor and he did a great job with her lessons. She felt very special and had a great time. The owner spent some time talking with us and was fantastic. I would... More

What an impressive operation with equally impressive people. I reached out with a last-minute request for a lesson and Mir responded almost immediately then took the time to understand my current surfing ability and my goals. She arranged for private lessons with two instructors (Nobie and Rachel) who were not only experts in surfing skills but also well-informed locals able... More

Admittedly I have not had lessons elsewhere, but there's no need to try anything else when you hit it out of the park with the first one. We decided on a whim for a Stand Up Paddle (SUP) lesson during our recent trip back to Hawaii. Since we were staying in Hawaii Kai, we went with Hawaiian Surf Adventures, right... More

Loved it! Secretly I never thought for a minute I would even try surfing, I told my wife I would try it, but i didn't really mean it.

This was our first time surfing, anywhere and Nobie was the best. The instructions where straight forward and we all managed to SURF. We had a fantastic afternoon and even manage to see a turtle hanging out in the surf. I would recommend this shop to anyone coming to Honolulu. Ask for Nobie, he'll get you riding the waves.

Cant say enough nice things about Nobie our instructor. Besides being and all around funny guy, he knows the sport and the Hawaiian culture inside and out. He is meant to be a teacher an instructs you in a way that gives you confidence to handle situations on the board. Wind was blowing about 15-20 mph which made it quite... More

That is what my 11 year old daughter and 10 year old nephew exclaimed after spending a couple hours out surfing. They were exhausted and had a smile from ear to ear. I even had an opportunity to reconnect with the ocean - what a beautiful, fun experience. Thanks to the team at Hawaiian Surf Adventures!
