The surrounding beautiful property is situated on a river that flows into the sea close by. Most of the days we enjoyed our surf lessons... More

His week long surf camp starts with 5 star accommodation in an idyllic setting that allows you to relax and prepare for great surfing. It could be dawn patrol or late afternoon because Edison makes... More

Edison’s surf camp (Surf Hawaii) is by far the most professional, fun, and exciting surf camp that I have ever experienced. Edison takes a very personal and proactive approach in his surf lessons, while demanding nothing less than excellence in his instruction. His passion to teach surf lessons, water safety, and surf etiquette supercedes the local competition by far. Surf... More

I stayed at the surf camp for a week. Was looking forward to meeting lots of new people, but it was just me and one couple staying there. And they left before me so the last couple of days I was the only one there. The property was under construction, but the facilities are very nice, and the location is... More

Seriously, though, I can't say enough great things about Edison & the surf camp! I booked a week rather last minute and stayed at the camp. It had recently been renovated and it was beautiful, clean, and comfortable. It didn't take long for it to feel like home. It's also walking distance from town. I highly recommend spending some time... More

We booked a 3 day surf package with Eddison being absolute surfing beginners. Eddison was a great instructor, we spent maybe 10 minutes doing theory at the beach and then went right into the water. You immediately notice that Eddison is an expert in surfing and loves the ocean and lifestyle. He picked the right waves for us and already... More

I stayed at the school for 7 nights and had a blast. Edison is an excellent instructor and I really enjoyed my time out on the water. The camp was beautiful and relaxing. The only change that I would rent a car next time. I will definitely be returning.

I had a very good time at Surf Hawaii! Jenny and Edison are soo nice and friendly. The camp was clean, everywhere grow papayas, coconuts and mangos! And it's near the town of Hale'iwa. Edison is a very good instructor, we were a small group and he had enough time for each of us! Someday, I will definitely be back... More
