Incredible time surfing - it was my first time, but the instructors were super patient and made it very fun. There’s also a member of the team taking professional photos the entire time (for sale after) - so you’ll definitely get a good shot!

Polynesian cultural center is a "Must Do!" Be entertained by natives of the different islands, the 15 minute movie of the Beauty of Hawaii, the Buffet and the "HA" show, It's Awesome!!!

It was so good. Good instruction, long lesson, great pictures. They made it fun. Can’t wait to do it again on our next visit.

Very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive to each surfer’s ability.

Nice equipment and the teacher was friendly and supportive
