Such an awesome lesson in the surf with Paulo!! Jordan and I were standing on our boards within 10 minutes of entering the water! Amongst providing the training, he brought humour and even spotted a sea turtle for us! Highly recommend the crew at Moku!
Great service! My boyfriend and I were new to surfing and tried out a few different boards. The guys that were helping us out were very nice about letting us exchange our boards 3 times! The owner said he wants us to have a good time and was extremely accommodating and they were very busy too and still helped us and didn't rush us at all. Recommend!
Had a great lesson for three with Derek. Photos and videos taken were great quality with the GoPro. Also received a discount for rentals the rest of our stay. They are a strong supporter for the local youth surfers. Would strongly recommend them over Dive Oahu. Moku is just 1 block away, has better service and better prices.
Rad place rad people!
Paulo was an incredible instructor. Could not of asked for a better experience. Definitely worth the money. Memory that will last a life time.
I did my first surf lesson ever with Derek and it was the best thing I have ever done! It was something I have always wanted to do but was very scary for me. Derek was great, he is a very good instructor and very fun! If you are in doubt, just do it! You will not regret it!
Extremely friendly staff. Much nicer than the surf board rentals on the beach. And considering that they're literally a block away from the beach I recommend here better.
Awesome place. Guys are friendly. Best surfing lessons that I have ever taken.
Awesome place. The guys are all friendly. Best surfing lessons I ever took. Paulo you're the man!!
Great place for surfing lessons, we manged to stand up and enjoy waves :) great instructor!
Love this place! Amazing lesson from Derek and love the shop vibes it’s really fun and already came back again for a second visit! Def coming back on my trip! ��
Great staff with the aloha spirit just 1 block away from the beach. Surfboard rentals are $7 compared to $20 per hour on the beach. Boards were easy to pickup and walk it a block to the beach.
I just have to say after a rocky start it ended amazingly well 😀 My children, 13 and 9, wanted to learn to surf while in Hawaii, so I purchased a semi private lesson for them and they were paired with Josh. It was a very rocky start, especially with our 9yr old DD, who is definitely head strong and, as Josh stated, "full of attitude." We had lots of fun moments with the lesson inside (looking back, probably not at the moment I'm sure) and then definitely out on surf. Both kids were able to get on the surf board after a couple of tries I believe at most, no tears, lots of smiling and laughing, and even Josh enjoyed himself despite his initial distress in the beginning. Overall, I'm impressed with how busy the place was and how smoothly it ran. The choices in boards they had and the fact both of my kids were placed in full size surf boards (😜!). I'm also impressed that the manager came up to me during the inside training to make sure everything was going ok when I walked away since my DD was giving her attitude to Josh and I explained everything was ok and nothing that wasn't deserved, just surprising and caught her and myself off guard. If my DD didn't get injured later during our vacation we would have totally come back to rent boards and surf some more but things happen. Highly recommend, next time we are there we will totally visit and mahalo for everything! My kids will never forget the experience!
Had my first ever surfing lesson at this shop. Paulo was the ideal instructor: patient, to the point and no frills. Instructed/demoed moves and then had me practice in the shop first; then again at the beach... Once we paddled out, I was able to get up on the board the first time! It was awesome! Highly recommend Moku Surf if you're in Waikiki.
Special thank you to our instructor Paulo! I appreciate that he took his time teaching us the basics of surfing before we headed to the ocean. My husband and I both succeeded with standing up on the board and riding a few waves thanks to his expertise and patience. Can't wait to do it again!
I had an amazing experience with Moku Surf Shop! I went to them all three days of my vacation, and was able to fit in two lessons and rent a board to show off what I knew in the water afterwords. My teacher, Paulo, was so patient with me throughout the lessons, and I recommend him to anyone who wants to seriously learn how to surf. If you're looking for someone to teach you, or just rent surfboards, Moku Surfboards is the place to go. Hang ten!
This Spring Break 2018, I wanted to take my daughter somewhere to relax and to have fun after working so hard at school and maintaining straight 'A's'. I asked her what she wanted to do. Without second thought, she blurted out she wanted to surf again. So I made a decision to go back to Oahu Hawaii and find the instructor at Moku Hawaii with friendly staff who taught her how to surf and gave her the undivided attention I needed her to have 2 years ago. His name was Isaiah. I prefer to keep his last name confidential but if someone ask us again who we would recommend to teach surfing, I will simply say, Isaiah of Moku Hawaii located near Waikiki Beach.
Moku Hawaii Has Supper, Ultra, Mega, Aloha!
We had Paolo as a surf teacher. We had an amazing experience!
My husband and I took a private lesson with Paulo and thoroughly enjoyed our class. We got up on our boards the first time and really got a feel for surfing. Thank you Paulo!
