Evan was fantastic. My 9 year old was very apprehensive, but Evan listened to her and took it slow. By the end of our lesson she was shredding it up. Now she wants to surf every day!!

Great experience! Evan and his crew made us feel very comfortable, especially considering it was our first time surfing. After abiut 10 minutes in the ocean they had us both up and surfing our first waves. If you want a great experience without the great cost, Island Surf Academy is the way to go.

From Our Editors

Evan Duffin-Barnes first took to a surfboard at age two, sporting floaties and a diaper. During his childhood on Oahu’s southeast side, he spent his entire life learning to longboard, shortboard, and bodyboard on the area’s intense shore breaks. His love of the water continued throughout his youth as he was both a high school swimmer and embarked on a college surfing career. Nowadays, Duffin-Barnes, a semi-professional surfer and avid big wave rider, enjoys tow-surfing and owns Island Surf Academy, where he passes on surfing expertise and the other topics he has studied since before he was potty-trained: safe ocean exploration and respect for the environment for future generations.

Novices slowly gain the confidence to ride in the zen-like curl of a wave as instructors show them how to paddle and stand atop their board. More advanced boarders use the lesson to hone their competitive edge, and surf camps bolster kids’ confidence on a board and foster environmental awareness. As the sun rises each day and old fishermen stretch their arms in preparation for exaggerated gestures, the academy’s team of locals lead custom surf tours, guiding participants to the area’s choicest swells on jaunts that can include hikes, snorkeling, and picturesque views.
