At Gone Surfing Hawaii, we live the motto, "Less Work / More Surf" because being in the ocean isn't just our job, it's a lifestyle and we love it. Our qualified instructors teach all ages fundamental techniques that can have anyone surfing in no time. So whether you're charging waves for the first time, or taking your skills to the next level, let us bring a little "More Surf" into your life. When you're ready to journey beyond Waikiki, join us for a full day's adventure along the North or East shores exploring surf spots, sights and local foods.

Gone Surfing Hawaii is a small, locally owned and operated company.

All Our lessons and Tours start on the sand with ocean awareness and safety. Then we get you right into the surf for a rush of wind and waves. No worries, our licensed instructors are trained in first aid and lifeguard CPR. Once in the water, we show you how to read the waves, position your take off, and the etiquette of wave riding. Whether you're a one-on-one type or you prefer fun with friends, our customized lessons and tours are built to make your adventure on the waves one to remember.

My wife and I had no prior experience, and felt that we got great friendly instruction in everything from how to try to stand to how to fall safely. Lesson started at the beach where we got the basics and then moved to the water. When we fell Trevor would point out our mistake to help us do better next... More

We booked this through our travel agent thought since four young adults were doing this, all would be together. When we called to confirm, wrong it was two different three hour classes. Eventually they decided to put all four together. When we arrived at the beach forty five minutes early, we looked for over an hour to find them on... More

I have been surfing once 9 years ago in Hawaii and coming back this was the only thing I wanted to repeat. I realized pretty quickly the company I used before kept me on the bunny waves before because these guys took me way out and we were in at least for me some big waves! I think it even... More

I was amazed at how fast my instructor had me up on my feet. I was definately concerned about my age(51) but my worries were put at ease when I met my instructor who was in his mid 50s. Everyone with gone surfing was kind and patient during the entire process, starting with my many questions during the reservation process.... More

My husband and I took a morning surf lesson on Christmas eve and it was fantastic. Our instructor Caz was very thorough with safety precautions and was a great teacher overall. We were both able to stand up on within the first two waves! I would love to take another lesson on our next visit

Really liked the instructor, encouraging and clear with the instructions. He will tell you when to paddle and push your board in the right direction so you're able to stand up from the first few tries. They normally teach off of "pops" a couple hundred yards out from the Outrigger Reef hotel, which is less crowded than the break in... More

Dad and daughter rode so many waves we were exhausted when we were done. Caz and Kevin were so much fun and gave excellent lessons. Our daughter was up on her first wave and rode everyone after that. Took dad a couple more tries then up and catching every wave. By the time we were done we could turn and... More
