Solid basics taught and all about getting up on the big North Shore waves. More of an immediate run than a walk-then-run experience so I would suggest watching surfing tip videos online before heading out if you're new to the sport. Matt is a good patient teacher and really only cares about getting you up on the waves after he... More

It was really easy to find the meet-up location. Matt (the instructor) was very friendly and extremely informative. After a brief "how to get up on the board" lesson, we hit the water and had a great time. In total, the lesson lasted around 90min, but he was willing to go out a little longer, we were just too tired... More

My partner and I had so much fun! It was a whole new experience for us but with some great teaching, we managed to learn how to surf before we even hit the water. Thanks again guys, unforgettable experience!

For the price that they charge, to me, this is an awesome deal. Very minimal time spent on the beach, just a quick orientation and then straight into the water which is great and makes the most of your time. Matt is a great guy and its very laid back. We had an awesome time, my wife and I were... More

My family of 6 took surf lessons over 2 days. Gutu and Stephanie were patient, kind and knowledgable. They took me, my husband and 4 kids ages 15, 12, 12, and 6 and go everyone standing. Their patience with my crying 6 year old was beyond anything I expected. They were wonderful in every way and definitely one of the... More

Saw a Groupon for this whilst we were on vacation in Hawaii. Looked fantastic value for money for our family of four but I didn't know if there would be availability when we were on Oahu so I called Matthew first and spoke with him. None of us had ever surfed before and I wanted to make sure that my... More

Private lesson with my family of 4 (2 kids - 18 and 16) and couldn't be happier with the decision to go with Blue Rush! Matt and Stephanie exceeded our expectations. They were very thorough and so calm and relaxed. We never felt rushed, they just wanted us to enjoy ourselves and have great memories. We were all standing on... More

Found these lessons on Groupon and was a little worried since there was no website. I texted Matt to set up the appointment and everything went smoothly. Matt and Stephanie were great and very friendly! We were all up on the first try and they were very patient and always concerned with safety first!
