Mahalo an Toby, ich hatte meine erste Surflektion mit Ihm!! Es war einfach super und hätte nicht besser sein können!! Wenn du eine Surflektion auf Oahu suchts, du hast die beste soeben gefunden. Nicht mehr länger nachdenken und buche eine unvergessliche Zeit an den wunderbaren Stränden der North Shore!!

Kalani is an awesome teacher with a lot of energy and enthusiasm for surfing. He was incredibly supportive and kept encouraging us even when we kept falling face first into the waves. Eventually I was able to catch a pretty big wave and rode it all the way! He got lucky that we were the only ones in the session but he made sure that we caught as many waves as we could. Definitely would recommend this experience to anyone who wants to learn how to surf!

Toby was a really good instructor and he also shared his knowledge about the ocean with me. I had a really good time, and it was awesome! I highly recommend the surf lesson. Thank you so much! Mahalo

Had my first surf lesson ever lesson with Toby and loved it. Super knowledgeable and super chill. Made it up on a few waves and saw some turtles as well. Can’t think of a better first experience.

Kalani was my instructor for my lesson and I wouldn’t have it any other way. The passion and expertise he exerted stretched far beyond just a simple first-timer surf lesson. I could tell that he really cared about what he was doing, and wanted me to learn to surf rather than to just stand up on a wave. After running into a few other surf schools at our location, I was more than happy with my choice to book with Kalani. He went above and beyond to make sure I had the best surf experience possible: teaching me the basics, selecting the best waves, introducing me to other surfers, teaching me surf etiquette, making sure I was always alright, and even going above and beyond to give me a ride when there was a location change. Although there were plenty of other experienced surfers out that day, I still felt like I belonged out on the waves too. I honestly couldn’t have picked a better surf school than the North Shore Beach Boyz. If you’re on the north shore, or even if you’re not, the experience is 100% worth it and I couldn’t recommend them enough. It was my first lesson, but it definitely won’t be my last.

Kalani is a great surfer! It was fun to surf with him - he took things at the right pace, while still making sure we were able to catch some waves
