What Our Customers Are Saying

Great experience!! We were quite nervous having never surfed and barely swam in an ocean. We got a brief training on the beach and then we were in the water. The teachers helped us catches waves and reminded us what to do each time to get better. Highly recommend. They do offer a Groupon, but will honor that price for cash.

Great surf school with an emphasis on SAFETY! We felt completely comfortable with our instructors and they made our North Shore surfing dream a reality. If you want a REAL North Shore surfing experience, not that canned tourist crap, you need to go to Buttons!!

Our family went surfing for the first time with Buttons and it was a great experience! They were very friendly and all of us were able to get up multiple times. Our main instructor was Chad and he was great. Very personable and easy to learn from. Would definitely recommend and do again.

Stood up on the board first time surfing! They made it easier than I thought it would be. Loads of fun! Great for a beginner! They had a tent set up on the beach and as soon as we got there we were given rash guards and then off the boards for a land lesson. We got to practice a few times with positions as the instructor gave a brief and efficient lesson before we hit the water. I managed to stand up 3/4 of the waves and saw sea turtles while paddling out so this was all in all a great experience.

Cat C

Had a great time surfing. Jason, our instructor, is really patient and cool catching every waves. At first, we had to meet up at the Halei’wa Beach Park then drive down the road trying to find good waves. Then we had to head back to the Halei’wa Beach Park because the waves on the other side are much bigger. Recommend this surf school and will surf with them again.
