Great First Surfing Lesson experience

We appreciate the owner keeping updating us the event’s situation before the lesson ( they kept checking if the wave is suitable for the lesson) and even notified us that we left our water bottle on the beach after the lesson and we already left the beach. The coaches are excellent in teaching. It was my 2 boys first surfing class and they learned how to surf during their lesson. Coaches are very friendly and teaches very well! It’s a great experience which inspires my sons to decide to continue this sport. We highly recommend this surf lessons on the North Shore of Oahu.

I had a blast with Ray for a one on one class. This was my second time surfing and I was able to stand up every time and had many long strikes. He was patient helpful and very encouraging. The other instructor Suzi was very friendly accommodating and patiently helped me setting up. Highly recommend!!

Matt was AWESOME! From the very beginning he made us feel like his friends and we were just going out for a fun day of surfing. He knew the best spot to catch the perfect waves for beginners and had us standing up in no time! I couldn't have imagined a better first time surfing. Me and my husband will always remember this time as a cherished experience we will never forget. Would book again just to surf with Matt!

Suzy and Matt were so funny and they looked out for us very well, especially for my girlfriend since she is a novice swimmer. They really cared about our progress and were so supportive the entire time. In the end we both got it, had so much fun, and are looking forward to continue surfing in New York!

Fun, fantastic, and just wonderful! The teachers were the best! It had been one of my bucket list items to surf in my 40's, and the instructors gave me confidence, showed great compassion, and were cheerleaders the whole way through! I was able to catch a wave on my first try! My whole family successfully surfed, and It was an amazing day! I highly recommend Sunset Suzy's Surf Camps and Surf lessons!

Zory was an excellent teacher, I'm 31 and have never surfed before and I was able to do it!! I had a blast!! I wish I would've done this at the beginning of my vacation so I could come back. Also, as a bonus I got to see a giant sea turtle!

David was awesome! Sweet, down to earth, and so easy to talk to/learn from. Genuinely enjoyed hanging out with him while we took our lesson. Felt like we were chilling with a friend while he was teaching us. Julie was also amazing with communication and text messages about important info. The whole experience was priceless. We would definitely do this over and over again. Mahalo guys, much love 🤙🏼

Had a private lesson and it was great. Full two hours, as stated and no problems. Training on beach for the first 15 minutes, which is essential and off they went into the water. Everyone was on time, professional and my son had a great time. Not as easy as the pros and locals make it look! Great time, great location, great business. Thanks!
