We had a great time learning how to surf at Waikiki Beach! The activity was done in a small group with multiple instructors and we didn't stay far from the shore. My instructor, Adam, was amazing and patient. He stayed with my sister and I...More

We really enjoyed our lesson. I was a bit nervous that I wouldn't be able to get up on the board, but turns out I got up the first time. The instructors were great.

2017年8月15日~19日、毎日通いました。というかこのスクールの為にハワイに行きました。初めて訪れたのは2011年1月。いろんなインストラクターがいたけど、今のスタッフは本当に充実しています。グループレッスンに参加すれば、ほぼ誰でも一回は立つことができ、そしてそれを写真におさめてくれています。それをインスタグラムやフェイスブックに投稿することができるだけでも75ドルの価値はある。その時その時の波の良い場所を探してくれて、その人その人のレベルにあわせて波を選び、プッシュと合図をくれる。じゅうぶんです。これで教えてもらっていない、と書くような人はプライベートレッスン受けましょう。あ、朝9時は混むので、早め早めに予約した方が良いです。Thank you Mr.Hans, Seth, Freddie, Duke, Adams, James, Joey and two lovely girls at Front desk !!! Hope to see you again in near future.More
