"100% recommend"

Jason is the nicest guy who is very good at what he does. The yoga instructor Sarabeth is the absolute best. Location is 10/10. Jason showed us around the island, had us try the best foods and gave us lots of recommendations for our time on the island after the retreat.

"The most amazing experience!"

Going to this surfing & yoga camp was the best decision! It’s a fantastic option for solo travelers, but of course not only. We had a small group of 6 solo travelers and everyone got along wonderfully (some of us even continued traveling together after the camp). Jason truly went above and beyond to make this experience exceptional. He’s a really great instructor who makes everything fun. You can really relax here. Zero stress. We experienced amazing food and I couldn’t wish for more. It was my birthday during the stay and Jason surprised me with a charming celebration. On day 1 I felt like being with friends. The house was very charming with a surfing vibe. I couldn’t thank Jason enough for being such a great host and friend! And for his recommendations after the camp as well! I would definitely go back if ever in Hawaii.

"Surf & yoga camp "

The above & beyond experience!

Jason ensured I had everything I needed to feel comfortable during the retreat which included: accommodation, equipment, individual instructional strategies for surfing, even remembering which type of açai bowl I liked best for breakfast!

"Never thought I would be surfing in 4 days!"

The instructor Jason is really excellent. I was standing up on the board and surfing after the third wave during the very first session! His method of instruction is very effective for beginners. He believes in you more than you believe in yourself and he helps get you out of your head. I talked to other people in town taking surfing lessons with other instructors that said they had yet to actually stand up on the board after 3 sessions! Jason also has a very mellow attitude and is just fun to be around. He was an excellent host!

"Jason ist vermutlich der beste Surflehrer überhaupt"

Das Camp vermittelt einem, einen schönen hawaiianischen Vibe. Das Zimmer war sauber und chic hergerichtet. Alle konnten von Jasons langjähriger Surferfahrung profitieren und alle Teilnehmenden konnte ab den zweiten Tag bereits im Wasser auf dem Brett stehen.

"Best vacation I have ever had!"

I cannot say enough good things about my experience at this surf camp. If you're looking for a cute little camp where you get pushed into baby waves and they take your picture and that's it, this isn't the camp for you. If you actually want to learn to surf, improve FOR REAL, and push yourself both physically and mentally, Jason is your guy! I had the time of my life surfing everyday at the beautiful North Shore, and I was able to take my skills back home with me to San Diego :) My confidence as a surfer has greatly improved and it's all thanks to Jason.

"You'll get fomo if you don't do this"

This retreat exceeded my expectations. I really had no idea what I was in for when I booked with Jason, just that I hoped to confront my fear of being in the ocean. I felt like his program thoughtfully packages technical instruction with the mental preparation and physical restoration that guarantees a sense of accomplishment by the end of the week, beyond that of just getting on the board. The yoga instructor, Sarabeth, is incredibly sweet and mindful to our needs (and has the best taste in music). I've always wondered what someone who loves his job looks like -> Jason. Cool dude, easy-going and responsive to requests. As an instructor, he meets learners where they're at, is patient and encouraging, and provides constructive individualized coaching. Bonus: he makes a mean chicken quesadilla.

The house itself is conveniently located near shops and restaurants. House vibes are relaxed and comfy, more "my buddy's place" than the typical sterile Airbnb feel. Bikes and snorkel gear available. Towels and rash guards provided. Crucially, has AC! Bring earplugs for noisy roosters. Highly recommended for anyone seeking a perfect blend of wellness and adventure!

"Awesome Surf and Yoga Retreat"

I had such a great time in Haleiwa. The town is so pretty with lots of things to do. Jason was a great surf teacher and the food was also amazing. He made everything so easy for us. The surf lessons were so much fun and I really enjoyed it. On the adventure day it was really bad weather but he did his best to make it a good day for us. And it was a great day :) I would love to come again in this retreat :)

"Idealer Plan von Montag bis Freitag"

Super Mischung aus Surfen, Yoga, sonstigen Aktivitäten und Freizeit! Jason und Sarabeth sind zwei sehr freundliche und erfahrene Lehrer in ihrem jeweiligen Bereich. Die Planung der Woche war flexibel und den Teilnehmern angepasst. Das Essen war abwechslungsreich und hat mir sehr gut geschmeckt. Danke für die erlebnisreiche Woche!

"Awesome experience and just what I needed"

The whole retreat is very personal and you can feel that Jason puts his heart and soul into it. The surf lessons were fun. The instructions are clear and Jason is responsible and tries his best to cater to everyone's needs. The yoga lessons with Sarabeth are in a beautiful setting and the perfect complement to the week. If the weather and surf conditions are too bad, Jason has a Plan B and you don´t get bored.

All in all I can definitely recommend the retreat :)

"Hawaiian Surf and Fun Clinic "

The best part of this surf camp is it's structure. Jason designed the week to build the students into picking up the skills of the sport. I have surfed before and had some experience but wanted to hone the fundamentals and I successfully rode several waves with lateral movements during the week. With effort and persistence, a student will surf and feel amazing doing it!

There are yoga sessions added to the course which is absolutely crucial for injury prevention. Waves of Hawaii is quite brutal and getting into the water can be unforgiving. I stayed injury free except for some skin scratches. Having done yoga in the past but had a big gap in its practice has given me an opportunity to work on existing injuries and ambition to get back into the practice. The instructor Sarabeth is very knowledgeable and will get the students ready for the surf sessions.

Jason provides a very clean place to stay and cooks incredibly delicious and healthy meals in the morning and evening. He is wise beyond his years on this planet to speak freely and heal the soul. He's an inspiration to his students to go beyond the limits of our daily grind and pursue living a productive and exciting life. Though I am a few years older than him, I soaked in his life stories to learn anything I could.

As someone who has aspirations for exciting trips but hates creating itineraries, this trip is built for anyone to simply follow and augment it with side options to have a memorable Hawaiian vacay!

"Best Surf Instructor and Best Retreat"

Everything was great. Jason cooked up amazing food and the accommodations were cozy and inviting.

Mostly tho, the surf instruction was top-notch.

Jason really has a knack for seeing exactly where you need to improve and explaining it to you in a friendly, understandable way.

I improved so much over just one week and had a blast doing it. You really get the feeling that Jason wants you to love surfing as much as he does, and by the end he succeeded for us.

Couldn't imagine a better value for the experience that we had. Highly recommend!

If you want to experience not only surf and yoga, but also Oahu’s north shore and the aloha lifestyle like a local, then this is your retreat to book. I had THE BEST TIME! And to be honest, even with all the information on the website, I still didn’t really know what I had booked. :D But wow, I was not disappointed at all.

Let’s start with Jason: He’s an amazing host. I could tell from the very first minute he picked me up from the airport that he puts his heart in this retreat. It shows in a lot of ways: He's so much fun to be with, he creates a very safe space for surf beginners, his home is lovely and the food was sooooooooo good! Plus: the schedule of the week is well balanced and leaves time for activities to recover from surfing and discover other adventures on the island.

Aaaaw and then there's Sarabeth, the yoga instructor! She and Jason are such a good match. Yoga helped to improve balance, strength and mental readiness for the surf board and to relax the sore muscles afterwards. I can affirm, as a yoga teacher myself, that she teaches her creative and fun classes in a very high quality.

I would TOTALLY come back - anytime! Mahalo Jason :)

"Just what I was looking for"

I wanted to travel to the North Shore and experience it like a local (or like a friend visiting). No big groups, close to the action, insider access. Initially, I was traveling solo but at the last minute had two others join me for a few days. Jason was the perfect ambassador! We enjoyed the attentive beginner surf lessons in the safe-feeling environment of the bay, while later watching the totally awesome pros at the Banzai Pipe Masters. I needed the restorative beach yoga with the beautiful SarahBeth. I loved our adventurous hike on Ka'ena Point with albatross, napping monk seals, and whale spottings! Ended the trip with an unforgettable Haleiwa sunset, a glass of wine, lightning in the distance, and new friends! Just what I wanted for this vacation. Also, thank you for the lift to the airport, Jason!
