Great time!

Had a great surf lesson! Instructor was very friendly and helpful, location was super convenient, and price was cheaper than other places. Definitely recommend! There was even a photographer who took tons of great action shots!

4 years of satisfaction!

We've been turning to Faith Surf School for family surfing lessons for the past 4 years. Their instructors are professional and knowledgeable, and most importantly, they are safe. It is a family-run business and the staff is friendly. They also have some great photographers working for them. I highly recommend Faith for surfing lessons and your beach needs. Good fun, good people!

First time surfing

I surfed for the first time this week! I was so nervous! Tammy put my mind at ease, gave me pointers and got me surfing! It was so fun an exhilarating! She had really good pointers and helped us pick out the right wave to surf. I will definitely come back and can’t wait to bring my kids here for lessons. Never in a million years did I think I’d ever be able to ride a wave.

Awesome lessons

This was the second time we sent our kids to Faith. They're on the younger side and just learning to swim so we opted for private lessons again. We continue to be impressed by their focus on safety and ensuring that the kids not only feel safe but are comfortable.

Awesome experience!

This was an awesome lesson with Kenny, at an affordable price right on Waikiki . I went for the group lesson but didn't honestly believe I'd be able to stand up and surf, but I did on the second wave! We then had around 7 waves each and I properly stood up and surfed about five of them. Such a high. Now wanting to get more surfing in my life!

First time surfer

My husband and I booked our activity online in advance of our trip to Hawaii. We both are strong swimmers but have never surfed before. We had booked a group time but ended up getting a private lesson for the same cost. We received very good instruction from our guide. We were both able to get up on waves multiple times during the hour long lesson.

First-class experience

This is the second year in a row we have gone to Faith Surf School. We did 3 private lessons during the week for my 8 year old son and they had him riding waves all session long from the outermost breaks basically into shore. Three different instructors (Kenny, Lauren, Tony) were all excellent. Will definitely use them again next trip
