Excellent Private Surf Lesson at Waikiki Beach
, May 2021
Loved the private one-on-one surf lesson by Big Wave Dave Surf.  My surf instructor was very nice and a good teacher. He was able to quickly help me to learn basic surfing skills. Within about 30 mins following his instructions,  I was able to stand up on the surfboard and surf. I will highly recommend Big Wave Dave Surf.

The best experience.

Chris went above and beyond as an instructor. You can tell he was passionate about surfing and teaching, and he was extremely patient. As a bonus, he was also SO much fun to surf with!! I can’t wait to go again!
Private lesson worth every penny at this surf shop

Wow! What a great instructor. Diana is amazingly helpful, informative, and super friendly. She saw I was struggling with my padding and came back to fetch me and provided some pushing of my board which I felt was above and beyond. I’d been pretty out of shape in 2020 - didn’t realize it until I tried surfing for the first time. She got me up and balanced on my board after three tries. The private lesson is definitely the way to go if you get an instructor like Diana.
