The only real surf school "Nancy Emerson Surfing is the only surf school I found that actually teaches you to surf rather than just has someone to push you into the waves. This is the place to go if you want to learn reading waves, understanding the break and catch waves on your own. I had 3-day surf clinic in Oahu and it was the most awesome and professional experience I've ever had on the island & it was absolutely awesome!"

If you want a beautiful relationship with surfing, spend some time with Nancy "Nancy Emerson pushed me into my first wave in 1986. I stood up on every wave and fell in love with the ocean. If you want a beautiful relationship with surfing, spend some time with Nancy in the water. Share in her expertise, her oneness with the ocean and her kind and joyful spirit. It’s what surfing’s all about."

I would give Nance ten out of five stars if possible!! "I would give Nance ten out of five stars if possible!! She is one of the most knowledgeable, positive, and constructive surf teachers both in and out of the water. As an avid surfer and traveler, I would recommend Nance and her surf school to anyone at any level: whether you're a seasoned professional or it's your first time ever paddling out. Nance will physically as well as mentally help you to the best surfer you can be. I am so blessed to have worked with her and truly believe she is the epitome of the aloha spirit."

The status and reputation of Nancy Emerson "I would like to comment on the status and reputation of Nancy Emerson in the international surfing community. I met Nancy for the first time in Hawaii. My friend and I took a semi-private surf lesson from her. I found Nancy’s surfing school from the Internet. Her web site attracted me because it was professionally done, informative and fun! I was impressed by her alumni, from famous movie stars to surfing champions. Being an instructor myself (since 1986, teaching in the computer industry) I value high quality instruction. Nancy’s surf clinics are high quality! She has vast experience, emphasizes safety, as well as respect for the ocean, and her instructional techniques are extremely effective. This experience motivated me to look Nancy up when I was in Australia for business reasons. I took a special trip up from Sydney to the Gold Coast to take another surf clinics from her. Nancy not only instructed me, but she also took me around the area, showed me different surf sites, and basically was a “tour guide” for me. I really appreciated that. I am looking forward to my next lesson with Nancy. Her talents, experience, and instructional techniques are a great asset to the surfing community. Nancy No Ka Oi!"
