Why Choose Us?

Over 20 years experience. I caught my first Hawaiian wave at Waikiki beach when I was 15 years old! I had a permanent smile across my face as I rode the wave all the way to the beach and surfing changed my life forever. I decided to become a surfer girl and travel around the world looking for surf and adventure. I traveled to places like South Africa, Costa Rica, Mexico, Tahiti, Samoa and all of the Hawaiian islands. I found perfect waves, adventure, and made memories that I will never forget!

soulsurferMy experiences led to being a surfer girl in the movie Blue Crush and a stunt double in Bay Watch Hawaii!

Surf on the famous north shore of Oahu where the movie “soul surfer” Was filmed! Starring the amazing Bethany Hamilton! Soul Surfer was an amazing movie about a very brave inspirational young surfer girl, and was filmed all along the beautiful north shore!

“Suzy has a team of fantastic instructors who do an excellent job of teaching you to surf and assisting you with catching a wave. We were provided with three instructors who would push our board to help us catch waves and answer any questions we had. They were a tremendous resource and extremely helpful.”

“Suzy and Gracie were the best!! Booked a surf lesson online for my wife and I and our two daughters. Everything went very smooth and Suzy was great communicating by email. After a short lesson on the beach we hit the water and my two girls were up on their first wave.”
