  • My 2 sons and my husband decided at the last minute to get a surfing lesson. We couldn’t have been happier with Shawn. He was able to adjust to the different levels of experience and ability. All 3 ha...  more »

  • Aloha! Here to spread the gospel! I booked Gone Surfing after researching the different breaks in the area and saw they go to Populars ("Pops") which has really long mellow rights. Sounded perfect for learning. The paddle out was about 3 times farther than the other schools so the waves are actual waves! I go to the spot in the directions a little early, pop a seat, and after a few minutes a guy walks up and asks if I'm there for surf lessons. We chat for a sec about some stuff, I tell him I do a lot of wake surfing and paddle boarding, and how I predict it will be different (like my shoulders likely dying in 30 minutes, the art of finding waves, and turning with weight shift instead of leaning). He took that info, shortened the land demo, and popped us out on some boards. My jaw hurt so bad after that two hour lesson because I had the biggest smile on my face the entire time! I'm telling you, it was freaking awesome. My instructor, Caz, had all the strength in the world to tow my kook shoulders around and would give me an extra little push to make sure I'd catch each wave. It was exactly what I was looking for. I went back this morning to rent a board and ended up catching some waves with Caz again while he was out for his morning bday surf. That guy just lives it. I've only been here for two days and this is already my favorite vacation ever. First time in Honolulu and I definitely want to come back. Big shout out to Gone Surfing and a huge shout out to Caz for making some seriously memorable moments! Sean (sp?), another instructor who was out while we were out too, was also incredibly friendly and helpful. This is definitely the highlight of the trip and I can't wait to go rent a board from them again. Mahalo! Dave
  • Awesome. Staff were super friendly and took great care of us, big thanks to Neil for helping us catch our first waves! Would 100% recommend.
  • Excellent surf school, supa friendly staff, made me feel very comfortable out in the water. You will be standing up first lesson for sure! A big bonus I thought was the fact that they take you out to what seemed to be a quieter break (by comparison to the mega crowds closer to shore).
  • Awesome staff, very knowledgeable and can find you a nice quiet break. We had Trevor and had a blast, the 2 hours flew by.
  • Excellent team, coaches are exceptional, they made us feel comfortable and passionately taught surfing to kids. My children did great in just one session and they wanted to go back to the classes again.
