We are a group of 8 adults aged 25 to 66 years old and some of us had had a surf lesson before and some of us were completely new to the sport. Rick was amazing —he got every one of us up and even had us catching our own waves by the end of our fun two hour lesson! He focused on safety first and only took four of us out at a time to ensure safety and personal attention. My only advice—allow 20-30 minutes to find parking and the surf location as we were late which was super embarrassing.

We had such a great experience learning how to surf for the first time with John. He walked us through the basics, ensured we felt safe, and created a very personable, cultural, and fun lesson. We enjoyed our surf lesson so much, we signed up for another session with Rick. Rick was able to challenge our skills to the next level, providing us with further confidence, excitement, and camaraderie. Would definitely recommend this surf school to others.

This was our favorite part of our trip by far! "Uncle" Rick and John are truly amazing. This activity was much easier than we expected! They definitely know how to make surfing easy and fun! They also provided shirts and shoes for all of us to use as well. They made teaching very fun easy to understand. Our whole group were new to surfing and we all were able to make it standing up on our boards! Will definitely come back and recommend to anyone wanting a fun and easy surfing lesson!

Polu Lani is the absolute best. They took us to a less crowded beach where locals go and it was the perfect location to learn how to surf. I was scared for my daughter since the last time she surfed she got injured. However, Polu Lani made sure that she was absolutely safe. They took a lot of time to discuss water safety and made sure that her and her brother were ready before going into the water. My daughter told me she was extremely nervous when she got into the water and she kept saying that she “couldn’t do it” but her instructor gave her a pep talk and a hug which made her feel better. She was able to catch some waves and she loved it. They did a great job balancing my son and my daughter together in a semi private and surfing was the highlight of the trip for both of them. Also my husband did a private with them and he had a great time! He was able to get much better at surfing and get some restaurant recommendations from his instructor as well!

This was my third lesson with John. We met John on a prior trip to Oahu and booked with him again when we returned. John is a great instructor and person. We had two fab days of surfing with John on this last trip.
