Best Surfing Lesson Ever

We had an awesome time surfing with Arsenio and his family!!! My daughter caught 7 waves and stood up all within the first lesson. They even took pictures of all of the waves we caught. Next time we go back to Hawaii we will definately be surfing with SideSliders again!!!!

Great first surf lesson

We were not expected to learn so much in a single lesson! Arsenio is a great teacher!! He introduced us to surf basic concepts and we could ride our first waves. Everything was captured by his wife's camera, so we will be always able to remember our greatest falls :-) We had a lot of fun and it was quite safe to start learning in Waikiki. Really recommended!!

Best Surf School in Honolulu!

For anyone looking for a great surf lesson, we cannot say enough good things about Arsenio and his company SideSlider. Do not waste your time booking through a hotel or on a busy beach because you truly are simply pushed on a wave and you will learn very little about the sport of surfing. Once you meet and surf with Arsenio, you will quickly know what we mean and you will have the time of your life!
