Satisfied Client's Testimonials


Thanks Dan, board worked out really well with some great waves about.

Service was fantastic and board in great condition. I would highly recommend using Dan to anyone looking for a board in Hawaii. Everything worked seamlessly from my perspective.

Charlie R.

Dan has been fantastic to work with on our last 2 trips. His equipment is in good shape with great rates. He is always ready to exchange boards and is very accommodating.

Thanks for all your help making our trip memorable, Kim and Chris.

Dan is the Man!! I visit Oahu a couple times a year for work. This is the first time I've rented from Hawaii Surfboard Rentals. All I can say is what amazing service. I called them an hour after landing and in 30 mins I had a board to head out to the beach. I decided to try another board 3 days later; I called Dan, told him what I wanted and he said "be there in 15 mins". Awesome Service and Excellent boards!! Stop surfing the net and surf Hawaii with Hawaii Surfboard rentals.

Hey Dan,

Back in Oz at work (unfortunately). Just wanted to say thanks again.

I sent Dan an email at 11pm the night before and had my board delivered to my hotel by 10am the next day.

Great service and I would definitely recommend Hawaii Surfboard Rentals

Mahalo Mate,

Sydney, Australia

Thanks again for the board rental during my trip to my "second home" :-) I enjoyed it and it is great service you being able to pick up/drop off. I'm sorry I didn't get to talk to you before I left, but I trust you were able to get the board from the front desk with no problems? If you're on Yelp, I'd love to add a comment for you!? I'll use you again in the future as it all was a smooth process for me.

Aloha a hui hoa!


Was a great service, very convenient and the link on the website for weather reports were very useful too. Boards were delivered at the time agreed and appreciated the prompt text responses and ease to extend so that we had the boards for an evening surf on our last day. Good selection of boards.
Will be checking the site for booking on our next trip!


I have just returned from 3 wicked weeks on Oahu and would say to anyone thinking of using Hawaii Surfboard Rentals DO IT !! This is the easiest service I have ever used and HEAPS cheaper than the other guys in town. Select a board before you go, have Dan call your hotel meet you and drop it off to you. Surf your brains out and then have Dan call you to arrange a board pick up when you leave, How Easy.The cost of Dan's service was cheaper than bringing my own board from Australia and risking damage from angry baggage handlers. Unless your a Pro, save the hassle and use this service. Already planing my next trip and I will use Dan's service again.

Sunny Coast

Just wanted to say that renting boards from you was awesome! It was so nice to show up to the hotel and have the boards waiting for us in the valet area and then be able to just leave them with the valet when we left Hawaii. There was no waiting around for pick up and drop off which made things so layed back. We will definitely be renting from you again when we return! Much thanks again Dan!


I have used Hawaii Surfboard Rentals twice now and both times it has been a phenomenal experience. There isn't an easier way to select your board, set up the drop off/pick up, and most importantly- to have fun surfing in Hawaii without the hassle of bringing boards over on the plane. Every future trip I make to the islands will start with a Hawaii Surfboards Reservation!



I've had a bad experience taking my board on a plane, so my buddy suggested Hawaii Surfboard Rentals. I was able to pick the board I wanted online (a super versatile 7'6"), reserve it, and it was dropped off at my hotel for me exactly when I wanted it. The cost of renting the board for a week was far less than the airline fee's would have been to bring my own board. These guys understand the needs of surfers, and made the experience a breeze. Big props to Dan and HSR.

-Bryan Vermeeren (Vancouver Island, Canada)

Dan provided great service at a very very good price. I rented a surf board (9'2" NSP), a boogie board, and roof rack for a week. The surf board was in top condition and was great. I caught many good waves with it on the South and East Shores of Oahu. The boogie board was also in great condition. I caught waves on the East shore (Makapu'u Beach) and the North (Waimea and Sunset Beach).


Dan was very friendly and took time to help us pick the appropriate boards. He was very responsive by phone and e-mail. The boards were waiting for us at our hotel when we arrived and picked up as we left - not a moment of paradise time lost.

Jamie from New Jersey

Everything was great, the board was exactly what I expected and the scheduled times were perfect. Thank you for your attention and I recommend HSR.


Thanks again for the great service and quality equipment. Pick up and delivery was easy - as usual, boards were all in very good condition, and the price is a fraction of renting from the resort or retailer. I tell everyone about HSR - it's the best way to get a surfboard or SUP when you're visiting Oahu.


It was a great experience for my family at Waikiki beach. Super reliable stuff and delivery on time. Boards condition were good, way cheaper than rental at Waikiki beach. Next time at Hawaii, surely I will ask you guys again.

Thank you very much

Boards were great. Super easy delivery. I didn't have to lift a finger. SUP worked well on the south shore. Longboard worked well on the north shore. It was great that you allowed us to keep the boards for the extra night which allowed us to get an evening session in on our last night. That was sweet, thank you!


Thank you so much for making our surfboard rental in Waikiki easy and very affordable. We really appreciated that you dropped off the boards at the hotel and placed them all the way in the basement of the Royal Hawaiian. And your pick up on the lawn out in front was very easy also. The price is unbeatable compared to the daily price of the Royal Hawaiian. The boards you brought us were also perfect. Thanks so much.

Alice Lopes

Everything was great! The drop off and pick up service is wonderful! Highly recommend you, in fact already did.


Dan O!

just an email to say "Mahalo" again! This is the 4th time I rented from you and my entire family was STOKED!!! Your boards are great ( all 6 boards were a perfect fit!) and your service and aloha are first rate! I can not wait to call you again....I recommend you highly to all my friends! From the beginner (8' soft top) to the avid surfer (9'6" BREWER or HOBIE) Dan O has you covered and he delivers and picks up!!!!!!!!!!!!!! priceless!

Aloha, SHAKA Phil

Just a note of thanks for your efforts in supplying us with boards. This was our third consecutive year using Hawaii Surfboard Rentals and, as usual, it was a painless and efficient process. I was initially concerned that we had left our request too late (especially when I saw on your website that you were off for a few days) but you were able to come through (again) with flying colors. We'll be in touch again next Spring Break ... and for many springs after that!

Nothing beats great friendly and timely service ... add in good quality boards and good rates and you have a very happy customer. Wishing you continued success with your business.

The Dobbie Family
BC, Canada

Thank you so much for the rental service. The boards worked great and I caught very nice waves with them. This proved that board rental is definitely not just for beginners, but also a great alternative for more experienced surfers who want to take a more practical surf trip every now and then. I used the 6'9" in 6 foot Sunset and Lanis and it worked great.

Bruno Krause

I couldn't be happier with HSR’s service. I didn''t get around to reserving a board until the day before I was flying to Oahu, but Dan was still able to set me up with a decent stick. Flying from the mainland with my own board would have cost me at least $150 and I would have had to deal with the hassle of traveling with a board. Renting from Dan for eight days only cost $120, and Dan was very accommodating about pickup and drop-off! And there’s no comparison to renting from a shop; renting from HSR meant (1) I didn't’t have to wait for the shops to open, (2) I could go to where the waves were instead of where the shops were, and (3) I got to ride a decent board instead of a soft-top log. I scored some beautiful waves on dawn patrol that I wouldn't’t have otherwise. I will use HSR again, and I would recommend HSR to anyone traveling to Oahu. Thanks, Dan!

I just want to thank you for supplying the surfboard for my weeks stay in Oahu. Although I was staying on the North Shore, You were still able to deliver the surfboard and pick it up! Your prices for the weeks rental were more than fair and the board quality was great!

Brent Storm

This set up worked great! I reserved a couple of boards online @ Hawaii SurfboardRentals.com a few days before arriving to Honolulu. The surfboards were delivered on time and I was able to hit the afternoon surf session less than two hours after my flight landed. Both the 9'2" NSP and 10' Harbor were in excellent shape. Super stoked, see you next year!

Chad Herring - San Diego, CA

Thanks again for providing an excellent service. The stand up paddle boards that we rented from you worked great and were in excellent shape. I was able to enjoy a variety of surf conditions in Waikiki, such as flat to chest high waves. I look forward to working with your company again next spring.

Andy - San Diego

I want to thank you again for our boards. I have become fond of the 10'2" NSP. It caught many waves last week and works very well for a 65 year old. The board keeps me "in the game."
Paradise was just that. It delivered surf every day and was not crowded. 3's was dead and Pops was crowded. Go figure? We never surfed with more than 6 other people and it was consistent.
I hope to visit again this time next year.

Roger M.

Thanks for the great service you provided on my recent trip to Hawaii. You made everything so easy! I had a great board for the week and saved over $200 in baggage costs! Will for sure contact you again on my next trip that cant come soon enough!


I just want to tell you how happy we were to have two surfboards delivered to our hotel room promptly as was promised and delivered. I would recommend everyone and anyone to call Dan and make your reservations. The service was excellent and the prices are very very fair. Before I saw this site I was only going to Oahu if I could take my own board. The prices given here for two new surfboards was less than what it would cost to ship one of my own boards. Thank You Dan! You made our vacation a the best ever.

Shaka Brah !! - Clyde

This is the second time I've used HSR. The board was delivered on time, it was exactly what I ordered and it was in great shape. HSR takes all the hassle out of getting a board you like to Hawaii. Thanks!


Everything was fine with the rentals. I liked the delivery and pick-up options. It was a really easy process.


Had a wonderful experience with Dan and Hawaii Surfboard Rentals. Our boards were waiting for us at our hotel upon arrival. The boards were in great condition. Dan and his team traded out our boards mid trip at our request and provided us directions to a pristine beach off the usual tourist path. Employees at our hotel all knew Dan (his team) and pick-up and drop-off of our equipment was extremely easy and timely. Dan and his team at Hawaii Surfboard Rentals are great to work with. Definitely will rent from them again and recommend Hawaii Surfboard Rentals for anyone's trip to Oahu.

Justin (Houston, TX)

This is the first time I've rented from anywhere on Oahu after coming to the island many times over 20 years. I wish I'd found you sooner! I've thrown a lot of money away to airlines through board travel fees. Your boards are fantastic and well priced and your service is outstanding. I'll be sure to find you again for my next trip, probably 6 months from now.


Outstanding service! Our 3rd year renting with Dan. Our boards were waiting for us at the Hyatt when we checked in. 2 days in, one of our group decided to go with a bigger board and Dan went out of his way to meet us to switch out boards. Could not recommend more highly. Will always be renting with Dan on our annual trips to Oahu.

~Eric P

Just wanted to follow up on all the other great testimonials regarding HSR. They allowed me to switch boards twice with no hassle at all. This made our already awesome surf trip to Hawaii even better.Very professional, great service. I highly recommend HSR to anyone.

Rob F
Vancouver B.C

Thanks Dan, for another awesome rental experience with your company! I always get the board I’m looking for, delivered and picked up at my convenience. Thanks for going out of your way to make my visit fun!

Aloha Liz

Your service was excellent and the boards first rate. Much better than the trash available on the tourist strip. I would gladly use your company any time I come to Oahu.


I have been to Oahu twice in the last year and have rented boards from Dan both times. I was more than satisfied with both the service and the board I received. Don't waste your $ renting a board from one of the beach shacks that will probably be covered in duct tape and will make you stick out as an obvious tourist. Dan is extremely friendly and accommodating and very well liked by the staff of the Hotel where I stayed. When I come to Oahu my #1 priority is surfing, after two awesome experiences I totally trust Dan to set me up with an awesome board. ~Mike

Just would like to thank HSR for there outstanding service to get me my board in Makaha this past week. Dan was very friendly and was able to give me some great info on other surfing beaches. There customer service is one of a kind an their service is even better!

Jonathan D. S

This is the second year I have rented from you and Hawaii surfboard rentals. We come to Hawaii once a year for two weeks and some of the highlights of our trip have been while we have been surfing or boogie boarding.

We always seem to rent the surfboards or boogie boards longer than expected and it is always appreciated you can accommodate us.

We look forward to next year when we will rent again from you. Maybe we will have to try paddle boards next time.

Thank you again,

David N. and family

Really appreciated your service. The quality of your surfboards and your service make coming to Oahu to enjoy the surf easy. This is the second time I used your rentals and I plan to use them again. The pick up and drop off services are particularly convenient for my busy schedule and I would recommend you to anyone.

Sincerely Dr Todd S.

Dan -cheers mate ---

The boards were great --- although the waves on the south shore could have been bigger !

Your service was awesome - as well as the local advice ...

thanks again!


Hawaii Surfboard Rentals is great, and Dan is awesome! I've rented from him two winters in a row now, and had a lot of fun. He let me switch boards twice on my most recent trip, which helped a lot when I started going to the North Shore.

Joe, Chicago

I first learned of and used your company three years ago and had an amazing experience. And this December, my experience was just as good, if not better! Your delivery of the board at the airport, at my car-rental place was very cool. I cannot wait to come to Honolulu again and rent through Hawaii Surfboard Rentals!

Keep up the great work and Happy New Year!


Thank you very much again for providing us with 3 surfboards on such short notice. The tips for us rookies as well as hints on where to go were fantastic! I will most definitely utilize your services in the future and won't hesitate to recommend you to others.

Bob and Kathy H.

As always, Dan, I return home a very satisfied customer. The board was waiting for me in the hotel's pen, which is a blessing for those anxious to surf the moment the plane lands, and the pickup was handled without my lifting a finger. Timely and cheerful service at a price that is a bargain. I'm only saddened I can't rent from you more often.

Thanks again and all the best,

Thanks for the whole package, quick, efficient and a friendly personality.


U guys rock. Thanks so much. Would wholeheartedly recommend u to anyone needing a board on Oahu!

Best rental board service around.. I loved surfing my fish and they would even let me trade up boards half way through my rental A+++++

Thanks guys!

Anthony L.
Vivo Headwear Inc

I DID IT!! Surfed my first wave! Thanks for delivering the boards on short notice, and offering a few tips on where to go and how to "make it happen". We will definitely reserve boards with you next time we visit. You are the man!!


Thanks again – glad I chose to get boards from you instead of paying the $35 for 1-1/2 hours that the beach-front rentals charge. The SUPs were ideal in the tiny Waikiki-winter surf. We’ll be staying at Turtle Bay in the Spring – I’ll make sure to give you a call for that trip too.

Roy W.

Thank you for the quick and very responsive service. Hawaii surfboard rentals truly express the Aloha spirit through the quality of your customer service. I made a same day reservation and Dan was able to deliver the surfboard quickly. In addition, I was unable to meet Dan for the original date of the return and he rescheduled it for a later day without any problem. I'd definitely rent from HSR AGAIN. They got the best rates and they have quality boards compare to other shops. Pleasure doing business with you guys!

John T.
San Diego, CA

I've honestly enjoyed your service immensely. And your substitute board was a board I wanted to demo back in California (Walden Magic) so it really worked out perfectly.


What a great surprise to discover your services during our stay at the new Aulani resort. You had a nice selection of boards and you were able to deliver on such a short notice. You made the trip for my kids who were able to cram in three sessions over two days. The fact that you delivered and picked up from the hotel made it all the more amazing. I have already recommended your services to the hotel concierge and also to a few friends who will be flying over in the next month. Awesome.

Mahalo, the Apodaca’s

The whole HSR experience was great. I received advice via email regarding conditions and the best board. The delivery was spot on for time, I was able to exchange my board after a few day with no hassle, and collection was all organized. This is the second time I have used HSR and will not be the last. The boards are great and in the long run this is a far better solution than spot renting

Sydney, Australia

The service provided by Hawaii Surfboard Rentals was beyond my expectations. They were more than happy to change boards once I realized what I really needed. It was brilliant that I could organize it all on line before I went and the surfboard was there ready for me when I wanted it. The crew were all friendly and on the ball. Thanks guys for the excellent service and I would suggest that it is a lot easier than lugging a board and paying excess luggage on the airlines.

Adelaide South Australia :)

My daughter and I just recently went to Hawaii and rented 2 boards from Dan. Dan was very friendly and delivery was prompt. My daughter had someone run through her and broke off part of her fin which we reported to Dan who fixed it extremely fast. It was also nice to receive a block of wax which was extremely handy as you use a lot due to the wax melting in the hot sun even if you don't leave your board on the beach. I would definitely use Dan again for a hassle free holiday as we already had enough baggage. I also would recommend Dan to anyone as he has a wide variety of boards and so much cheaper and convenient then hiring off the beach.

Sharon O.

Thanks for your great service which made our stay in Waikiki that much easier - especially the pick up via the hotel Bell Hop. Thanks also for the late pick up - which gave us a chance to surf some exceptional waves last week from Queens to Publics; much appreciated. Hiring at a fair rate and door to door service is a great service. Mahalo!!

Florian G.

Dan has always come through to make sure that your experience with his company is the best.
If other companies had the standard of customer service he provides, we would all be a lot happier.
Drop offs and pickups happen when he says they happen, will switch boards if conditions change and they are available (no later than 24 hours after request). Reasonable prices.
I challenge any other competitor on Oahu to match his service and value.


THANK YOU! Dan at Hawaii Surfboard Rentals provides an amazing service and even better customer support. He helped me pick out the perfect board and even exchanged boards halfway through the trip. The 2 boards I rented were in great condition, the hotel drop-off saved me time and hassle - I couldn't ask for a better experience. Mahalo!


Mahalo nui for the great service you provided. $120 to have a board during my 8 day visit back home delivered right to my front door is an incredible value considering what I would have had to pay in airline baggage fees and the hassle that comes along with transporting a board along with the rest of my family's luggage. The website offered a great selection of boards. Although my first choice was not available at the time, Dan suggested a 9'6" Walden that he had available, which worked well for me. I'll definitely be renting with Hawaii Surfboard Rentals for my next trip back home. Mahalo!

Seattle, Washington

Your prompt and attentive service helped make this one of my best Island surf experiences ever.
when The big South swell hit you were right there to exchange the small wave cruiser for a performance nine footer. I was even lucky enough to win the bronze statuette of the Duke at the 2011 Duke`s Oceanfest! Mahalo, and aloha till next year!

Jack Ellis

Thanks again for the excellent service and great board. My experience with your company exceeded my expectations and I will certainly call on you again the next time I’m back in oahu.

In particular, the fact that you made the extra effort to deliver the board earlier than expected was a pleasant surprise and an unusual gesture these days.

I travel quite frequently in my job, and I’m often disappointed at the result of goods and services that I book on-line in advance of my arrival. My experience with hawaiisurfboardrentals was very positive and tremendously appreciated!

Keep up the great work and the good vibes!

Best regards from Canada ,


I surf in Oahu about 3 times a year and have stopped flying my own boards over because of Dan. He defines "service". The boards are always at my hotel before I arrive, he is always keen on swapping out boards if I wanna change up my ride, and most importantly, he is incredibly flexible. I took my daughter and her friends this last week to Waikiki and after 3 days they were done surfing. With 2 days to go, and 2, too many boards I called Dan and without hesitation, he suggested he pick up the boards and refund back the unused rental days on both boards!

--Loyal Customer, Mimi

True island Spirit. Hawaii Surfboard Rentals is the place for your board. Economical and the board was there in perfect condition, with wax and right on time. Best choice I made prior to arriving on Oahu for a family holiday. 2nd time with HSR. Great longboard, great service and very friendly. home is sweet, but the only thing that makes it ok to be home after the islands is we are planning our next trip!


Denno Crispin

For the past five years I have had the pleasure of renting my surfboards from Dan at HSR and I'm always impressed with the quality and selection of boards provided. Having the boards picked up when arriving and then leaving is a big part of Dan's exceptional customer service. Dan and HSR have always served with Aloha and I can't wait till my next surf trip to Hawaii.


We were very happy with the service that you provided. In particular it was great for the boys to have access to the boards early in the morning when they wanted to go out. If we had used the boards at the Royal Hawaiian they would not have been available until after 7 am every day which would have been frustrating for the boys. It was also really great that you were able to switch to a smaller board really easily. The boards were in great shape! We found your pricing very reasonable and made getting a board for all three of my children very affordable. We also found the pick-up and drop-off to be convenient and reliable.

Thanks for helping make the boys surfing experience a great one!


Thanks so much, this is how easy it should always be for surfers not wanting to pay the high price of shipping. On line payments, excellent communication, on schedule, front door deliveries and nice performance boards made our first trip to the South Shore perfect. My son and daughter are ready to get the 9-0 and 9-4 Bongas back here in Cocoa Beach! Too much fun, I will highly recommend HSR to all my friends and family. Super stoked thanks again and see you next time!

The Broughtons, Cocoa Beach

This was the 4th time I rented a board from Hawaii Surfboard Rentals in the past few years. No doubt, your service provides the most economical way of being able to travel and hit the waves from the day you arrive to Oahu until the day you depart – can’t beat that. The selection and quality of boards, as well as the customer service, was outstanding. I look forward to seeing you again next year.

Take care,
Art Toehlke, Virginia Beach

That was way too easy for me! I arrived at hotel and board was waiting! When I check out I just leave it with bell desk! Awesome! Got some great surf at threes right out front! Great service! Thanks again!

Chris McKee
San Diego, CA

Thank you. Your service is awesome. You were super accommodating, reliable, and very friendly to work with. There is no reason to even think about traveling with boards given the great selection of quality boards you have to offer. You service really made the trip for us. We will definitely be giving you a call on our next visit.

All the best,

JP, Rehoboth Beach Delaware .

I had great fun with your surfboards during my stay in Honnolulu. I really liked the Bonga 8ft, but it's so long to paddle out in Waikiki. Thanks so much for switching my board to 10 ft one so quickly. I should rent out bigger board or bit high performance one from the beginning. I'll definitely rent your surfboard again when I come up to Hawaii again next time. Thanks so much for your great service!


I used Hawaii Surfboard Rentals during my first visit to Oahu. The service was excellent and the board arrived on time, I was out surfing within minutes of the board arriving. Dan then picked up the board on the day I left. The HSR service was unbeatable, friendly, and punctual. I will use Hawaii Surfboard Rentals next time I'm back in Oahu .


Had a great time and your service was so easy!! With what the airlines now charge for boards ($150 to $200 each way) I do not understand why more people would not use your service. I have traveled with and without my board to numerous locations, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Hawaii, Cali, etc. and it is always a guess on what the condition your board will be in when it arrives. My son and I were very pleased at the process of renting your boards, the quality of the “rentals”, and the ease of drop off and pick-up. I would definitely use your service again and tell my friends. Thanks for adding to a great trip!!

David McFarland

Renting a board through Hawaii Surfboard Rentals was great! Dan delivered my boogie board and fins at the agreed upon day and time and I was ready to hit the waves. Enjoyed a week shredding at Makapuu, Sandy Beach, Waimanalo, and Waikiki. Dan then picked up the gear as promised and it was off to the airport. Now that I've found Hawaii Surfboard Rentals I will never lug a board on the airlines again. Mahalo Dan for such great service!


Dan always delivers! I have used Hawaii Surfboard Rentals for 6 years now! No other company can give you the great service that Dan offers!!! Take my advice and use this company! Dan will always go out of his way to work with you. He wants all of his customers to enjoy their Hawaiian experience! Mahalo Dan!

The surfboard you rented to me worked great. I think I'm going to have one shaped just like it here.
See you next year!


Thank you for your excellent service. I love how I can always count on you to have quality surfboards at an excellent price. You have so many surfboards to choose from and its nice to try out a different surfboard on each trip. I have rented from you four times and I keep coming back because of your friendly, professional manner. I am already looking forward to doing business with you again!

John Lloyd, MD

It was a pleasure dealing with you and your service was top rate. The boards were great and your advice was very helpful. I would recommend your company to friends.

Thanks again,

A+ Service!!!

Dan at HSR was incredibly helpful and an overall awesome guy to deal with. I initially rented one of the 7'6" NSP funboards. It was delivered on time to my hotel in great condition. After a few days in the water I chose to switch it up to a 9" Robert August longboard. With one days notice Dan came and swapped out the boards. I didn't even have to be at the hotel, and that board was in great condition as well. Awesome board selection, on time delivery, easy communication. I will definitely tell everyone I know to give him a call. Thanks Dan!

Sean L.
Los Angeles, CA

Thanks for the great service! You brought us good boards, when agreed upon, at a fair price. With the airlines charging so much to carry boards, it is nice to know we can get quality boards when and where we need them. Thanks Again!

Chris A.

Thanks for the boards. Pick up and delivery made it easy since this was a working trip and we needed to squeeze in some surf time.

Attached are some photos of us at pipeline and gas chambers in North Shore.


As always, you have set the bar high with your Island-wide service and wide selection of quality boards. The Arrow was perfect for me and Tyler ripped on his 8-6 NSP! You have made our past surf trips griefless and we will definitely be in touch for future ones. Keep up the good work...you are truly Ali'i Kane among your peers ...although I don't see that you have any!

This is the second time I have used your company, your service is EXCELLENT! The quality of your boards is great, and the convenience of renting from you is very easy. I recommend your company every chance I get, and I will be using your service in the future. Thanks again.

Maholo, Brian

This is my second year renting from Dan and the crew at HSR, and each time has been painless. You make the reservation online and Dan keeps you informed from there on. This year the board was waiting for me when I arrived at the hotel, and adding an extra day onto the rental was no problem. Thanks to HSR it was dawn patrol every day on a board I wouldn't’t be able to get at the rental racks. I wouldn't’t even consider bring a board from home.

I will be renting from HSR again!

Yorba Linda, CA

Thanks for the exact board, delivered at the agreed time, picked up when arranged and without hassle. Much better than carting a board around while traveling. Great service, great price and great equipment.

John Boehm
Western Australia

After several trips to Hawaii where I either spent too much money flying my board over or wasted time and money searching for the right rental board, Dan was the perfect call! My board was waiting for me at my hotel as promised and was picked up one week later exactly as promised. The board was exactly what I was looking for and I was stoked to get right in the water instead of driving around Oahu looking for the right board. I will definitely dial up Dan on all of my subsequent trips to Oahu.

Dave G.

It has to be said! We have always used HAWAII SURFBOARD RENTALS and always will. Every single time it is the same. Order the board, get a great deal. Showd up on time and with wax and a leash. Surf and have fun. Then they pick up the board. easy! affordable! fun! did I say easy!.. :) Thanks Hawaii Surfboard Rentals!!!

Chris N.

Wanted to thank you for a great SUP rental service!! It was like having a friend dropping a board off for me to use. You run a good operation – reliable, friendly and good equipment. People are asking where I rented and I am letting them know that HSR is the way to go. Hope to see you next year!!

Paul W.

Aloha Dan!

Attached are two pictures, one of me and one with our daughter who rented a boogie board from you as well. I figured we'd all get in on the fun! I keep referring you to all my buds who visit so hopefully the word is spreading well.

Take care and we all hope to see you soon!

An email sent a few days ago to my buddy Dave:


Here is the link to an awesome board rental service. http://www.HawaiiSurfboardRentals.com
While I was there we swapped out boards, and even added an extra one for free.
Nice friendly courteous service, it worked out perfect for us.
Give him a try, I know you will be pleasantly surprised.

This is a must use company! It was such a relief to see my board at the hotel when I arrived. The board was just as described with a stick of wax included. Don't waist your time with the overpriced junk rental boards on the beach when you can have quality... no hassle... cheaper board!

WOW! For surfers planning a future trip to Oahu, call Hawaii Surfboard Rentals first, don't mess with anyone else. Can't beat their service and pricing. Surfboards were delivered upon our arrival to the hotel and picked up again on our last day, 9 days later. We even got out for an early morning surf, the day of departure.

Dan provided excellent service for my family and I with the right boards. Don't mess with the hassle of bringing your own boards to Hawaii. This was painless.

We surfed everyday at different south shore spots and believe it or not, a 1-3 foot North Shore swell in the summer during the week we were there.

Thanks again.

Forgot to thank you guys for great service you have there.


Want to say thanks for the great service and excellent surfboard you provided during my stay on Oahu. Surfboard was both delivered and picked up on time as scheduled. Surf spot recommendations were a big help. Thanks again and see you next time.

Gonna tell all my surf buddy's when i get back, thanks again for the excellent service and help with different surf break locations. That 9'6" Brewer is one heck of a noserider.

Let me start things off with the day I arrived. Dan was punctual and met me at my rental car agency as planned. Strapped the roof racks to my car in under 5 minutes and sent me on my way in no time, even got to surf within the hour of landing. Pick up was exactly the same, except by a different driver named Louise who helped me with my surfboard from the bell desk. Highly recommended company!!

Don Massir

After two days of getting ripped off at other surf shops in Waikiki, I'm glad I found you. See you next year!


The best choice I made prior to arriving on Oahu for a family holiday. Great longboard, great service and very friendly.

George G.

Totally stoked on the brand new Surftech stand up paddle board I rented from HSR during my recent vacation on Oahu. Got to surf a little on the north shore plus cruise it on the south shore.

Thanks again,
Ama H. (Australia)

I couldn't have asked for anything more, the surfboard I rented from Hawaii Surfboard Rentals was in excellent condition and there delivery/pick up timing was on schedule. Very accommodating and helpful. See you next year!

Vanessa M.

Forgot to thank you guys for the great service you have there.


Your service is great and I'll be recommending you to all.

Chadd @ Island Trends

Great service all around, I found Hawaii Surfboard Rentals.com to be everything I hoped for. Very informative and friendly, and the best way to rent a surfboard while in Hawaii. I'll be seeing you in five months.

Thank you,
Jose Silvia

These people rock, Dan HOOKED ME UP again! I rented from Hawaii Surfboard Rentals and it was what everyone talks about as being convenient and accommodating as possible. Just leave the surfboard rental process up to them and they'll take care of you. Dan and I even got to surf together so he knows what's up and he's full of good advice too!

Much Mahalo,

I have nothing but great things to say about Hawaii Surfboard Rentals! Dan Lopez is friendly and helpful and the board (Southpoint Schaper/Bonga 9'1") was delivered and picked up promptly and according to schedule. I had an awesome time surfing the board at Ala Moana (Kaisers), White Plains Beach and Haleiwa - it performed well up to expectations, and my experience was completely positive. After my first long distance surfing trip in 1999 (when my board was somewhat mangled), I decided to try renting when I traveled. That was a great decision and should I ever travel to Hawaii again, I will most definitely rent from Hawaii Surfboard Rentals. You can trust Dan Lopez to make your renting experience an exceptional one!! Mahalo Dan!!

I spent a week in Hawaii last year to do some surfing and Hawaii Surfboard Rentals was the best deal. They helped me pick out the right board for my skill level (I had never surfed in Hawaii before) and gave me recommendations on where to go. They dropped the board off at my hotel along with the car roof rack. I spent the week driving up and down the North Shore catching waves. Then at the end of my last day they pick the board up at my hotel. It couldn't have been a better experience. I will rent with them again the next time I go to Hawaii, which I hope will be soon.

Ronald Pruse

I just wanted to thank you for the use of the surfboards. This is a great option to bringing our own boards that get banged up in flight and cost more to bring than to rent. Great service, nice flexibility, and a nice first time experience for us.

Look forward to renting from you again next year.

Dean Rogers

For a week of surfing at Waikiki Beach I found hawaiisurfboardrentals.com via google. Booked a board at 11 pm in the evening in San Francisco.The first call I got when I arrived at the hotel 10 hours later was Dan, delivering my board. Had a lot of fun on Oahu and left the board with the hotel when I left. Don't hesitate to ask Dan for the right board for the actual conditions- he knows best! That's business you will remember- Thanks!

Stefan K.
Hamburg, Germany

Really impressed with the service. Landed in Hawaii, the board arrived on time as promised & within hours of landing I was catching a few. Initially went for an 8ft, but thought I might need to go up to a 9ft. Called Dan, no problem. Next day, new board, more waves. Returned home the following week, back in the office - in Australia - picked up a phone message from Dan from a week ago telling me he'd just dropped off the board at the hotel. A courtesy call across the dateline ! Felt like heading straight back over there & then. Don't know when I'll be coming back but I know who'll I'll be using & telling everyone else to use.

Nathan, Sydney, Australia.

Thanks for your great, friendly service ....especially when changing out the board. We had a great time surfing Canoes, Queens and White Plains Beach. See you next year and all the best!

Ron and Brigitte

Super big thanks for the great time we had! We got home yesterday and again, I had to thank you for the killer surfboard, the ease of renting and the money you saved us. I figured I was saving money renting from you, although I didn't know how much! I realized that several places on the beach rent for 20 dollars an hour. Paying extra for the Surftech was well worth it! Thanks for helping make our vacation fantastic; we had fun waves every day!


Excellent service, great surfboard and completely painless. Renting a surfboard from Hawaii Surfboard Rentals.com save the hassle of bringing my own board from California, plus cost me less than renting a beat up surfboard on the beach. I had a great time surfing Waikiki, thanks a bunch.

Amber D.
San Diego, CA

I recently went on a 4 day trip to Oahu hoping to score some surf while there. I was greatly impressed to find that some smart local dude figured out how to beat the burn caused by airlines who charge about $300 roundtrip to bring your boards to surf destinations--he lets you rent boards from him (about $40 for the first two days and then about $10 after that), and the best part, brings them right to you. It's sweet to check in at your hotel and have your board waiting for you there. He has a selection of online options you can choose from and a fair pricing system that lets you get more value from your rental than had you brought your own boards along. Boards mostly cater to beginner and intermediate riders, but he does have a couple of locally shaped advanced boards. Importantly with proper heads up he lets you switch out boards to meet the proper conditions. Need a longboard tomorrow instead of the fish you have? No problem, he brings it right to you. I considered it a real plus to my trip as it took all headache of lugging a board around, and I found Dan the owner to be the real deal when it comes to Aloha. Big ups from me.

GOOD TIMES !! One week went by so fast. I just loved surfing the surf break behind the Sheraton Waikiki. Great service and very easy to work with. See you next year.

Gabe R.

Just home from 2 fantastic weeks in Waikiki. Rented a board for the 2 weeks from Hawaii Surfboard Rentals, which was delivered and picked up on time. Excellent service all round. Highly recommended. Mahalo Dan !

Shaun, Sydney Australia

What a blast I had this past week! I have to thank you guys once again for the excellent service you have provided. The surfboards worked perfectly and were practically brand new. The waves were perfect on the North shore, just like on my surf videos back here at home. I can't wait to be back, see you in a couple years or sooner.

Everett K.
Pacifica, CA

Mahalo for your excellent service, which was prompt and flexible, even during an island-wide power outage. Having the board all week took out all the hassle of daily rentals and gave me more time in the water. I'll certainly recommend you to friends visiting the islands.

Bill C.

Hawaii Surfboard Rentals were awesome. Delivery and pick-up of boards were right on schedule, and the quality of the boards was great. Not only were the costs much lower than renting those sponge board "buses" from the beach rental stands, yet was great to have a performance board that felt like riding my own stick. Both my son and I had a great time, and we owe it all to the great service that Dan provided. I will definitely be a repeat customer.

Faron C.

I'm so stoked I came across the Hawaii Surfboard Rentals website. My board was delivered when promised and the waves were awesome. I will be recommending HSR to all my friends.
Mahalo Dan!

Kevin Ferguson
Capistrano Beach, CA

Totally stoked on HAWAII SURFBOARD RENTALS!!! Dan absolutely went ABOVE and BEYOND for my family and I ! This was my 2nd time renting from Dan and his boards are perfect! From the advanced longboard for myself or the beginner boards for my kids- HSR has the right board for you. AND you will not find better SERVICE!!! I will be back next year for sure!

Mahalo Dan.

Best place to rent your surfboards for first timers to Hawaii. Awesome service from Dan! Will definitely recommend this company to my friends.

Julian P

Thanks for the photo. Sorry I missed you on pick up of the boards, I wanted to thank you for changing the fin for me, the board was gangbusters after that! Cheers mate, we all had a great time and good waves.

Much Mahalo,
Kristin Brinkworth

Dan at HSR provided the best service and super boards! 1000% satisfied. Made my trip easier and I saved money and time. Got some of my best waves ever on the north shore! Mahalo nui loa Dan!

Mike N.

Thanks for your excellent service, advice and reliability. It's great going to a new place and having everything fall into place as it is planned. The 9 footer you recommended for Waikiki was on the money and in excellent condition. I changed to an 8 footer and struggled early but got it going before I had to SOS you to change back.

Hope to return and if so I will contact you again. I will definitely recommend you to all I meet.

Mahalo to you,

Jim Green
South Australia

Hawaii Surfboard Rentals is the perfect way to rent a surfboard while on holiday. Dan replied almost instantly when I submitted the online board request. The board was there when I checked in and Dan even traded out with a longer board when I finally accepted I would not be standing up on the short board I rented. Everything happened just when I asked. I highly recommend this bloke and his company. I'll be using HSR next year when I return!


We wanted to send a message thanking you for your great service. My husband and our son had a wonderful time surfing in Hawaii. Our son surfs here in the state of Washington, but it's always freezing cold and/or raining. Some of the "die hards" even surf during a snow storm. My son thought it was wonderful to surf without having to wear a complete wet suit and hood.

Thanks again for helping to make our vacation a special one.

Susie Shepherd

I'm so glad my buddy recommended Hawaii Surfboard Rentals.com to me. I made a reservation on the HSR web site, it was replied to promptly, and two days later upon my arrival I had a killer board waiting for me at my hotel, in better shape than my board back home:) The Bonga 9'1" M2 just totally ripped on the North Shore this past weekend. Chuns was firing double over head this past Sunday and Monday so having the performance of the M2 was crucial. To anyone looking for a performance 9'0", try the Bonga boards by South Point, you will not be disappointed. Oh yeah, back to HSR, the drop off and pick up were on time and the entire experience was five star. I've got your number logged in to my phone so I'll be calling you guys in two months, thanks again.

Casey Moniz
Huntington Beach, CA

I just want to extend from Georgia a belated "GRANDE' MAHALO" for the two Sunset long boards you provided for my wife and I while in Waikiki. Even though the swell was small, I was able to teach her how to surf and she was instantly addicted. Your guidance on the local spots helped also. Next time I am in Hawaii I will definitely give you a call. Your professionalism is No.1!! Thank you so much!!!

Jake Brindle

Thank you again for such a great experience in renting a surfboard. The surfboard recommendation was great and I was really impressed with the quality of the board.. even got some compliments out in the water! Anyway's, I will continue to refer friends and family to your business and wish you continued success.


John Tesoriero

Quick message to say mahalo for your great service and surfboard. You and your business are exactly like all your testimonials describe -fantastic. Looking forward to contacting you in 12 months when I return.

Laszlo P.

Once again thanks for the uncompromising service that you provide! Tyler was pleased to see that his board was waiting for him when we arrived at the hotel. He was even able to catch a few waves that night! As said many times before but can't be emphasized enough, the convenience of your delivery/pick-up, very reasonable rates and high quality boards (Tyler loved the 8-2 NSP) you provide, makes your mission second to none. I am referring you to everyone I know going to the Island and plan to surf. Even if they don't plan to surf, I'm telling them about you since you make it way too brain-damage-free ...I only charge a 20 percent commission too...kiddin ya man!

Mahalo My Friend!

Bryan and Tyler

I'm back in Rio and I'd like to thank for your services that let me have the chance to surf Waikiki. All the best, and until the next opportunity,


Mahalo to Dan and Hawaii Surfboard Rentals. His service and board selection absolutely cannot be beat. We really feel that he went out of his way to provide helpful service, from meeting us at the airport rental car parking lot to deliver us our boards, to dropping by our hotel mid-week, to the friendly and prompt pickup at our hotel a week later, everything went perfectly. Board selection is excellent, much better than what we found in the past on Oahu "taking our chances" by dropping by any other surf shops or rental stands - we could see what we wanted in advance, and choose from a good selection of high quality boards in all size ranges. In particular, if you aren't a beginner, I think you'll find this very important - we did - he's got a great selection of high quality epoxy and fiberglass boards to suit most surfers and surf conditions. You'll also find Dan's "insider" advice on breaks and local crowd conditions to be very helpful and right-on-the-money!! Finally, consider that Dan does all this for a very good price, comparable to what others charge for inferior boards and lesser service.

Will we use Hawaii Surfboard Rentals again? Absolutely! In fact, we're already making plans to return!

Mahalo again, Dan.

Doug Ruhlin
Lanoka Harbor, NJ USA

Once again excellent service, good communication, punctuality and a good board ..surf on South Shore quite good.

Paul Despas

As a surfer and frequent traveler to Hawaii, I was really stoked to learn of your company. In the past, I brought my longboard from the mainland but it has become too expensive and challenging. I've also tried renting a board from a different company on Oahu, but was not impressed by their service or board selection. From our initial conversation you were helpful and professional. You took the time to discuss the pros and cons of each longboard, and helped me pick the perfect board for my riding style and the waves on the south shore. You delivered the board and racks when you said you would, and picked everything up on time as well. I had a great time surfing on Oahu, and will absolutely use your company again when I next visit. Thanks Dan, great service!

Mahalo, Marc Rich

This July 2008 was my first trip to Hawaii and Hawaii Surfboard Rentals was fantastic. My aunt has rented boards from Dan for years and highly recommended him. I was not disappointed. Dan had my board ready at my hotel before he was even expected!! He was willing to swap out boards and even gave me a few tips. The board was in excellent condition and I truly enjoyed surfing on it. Renting my board from HSR took away all the hassles and worries plus the board was delivered and picked it up for me. HSR's rates were much more reasonable than the beach rentals!! I'll be returning to Hawaii next summer and will only rent from Hawaii Surfboard Rentals, and highly recommend that anyone rent from Hawaii Surfboard Rentals. Thanks so much Dan, it was great to finally meet you after hearing my Aunt rave about you and your business for years. Looking forward to seeing you next summer!!!


Bonnie Zanker

Once again I have to thank Dan at Hawaii Surfboard Rentals for making my vacation not only awesome but so easy. What do I mean by easy? Well, I never have to worry about bringing my own boards to Hawaii as Hawaii Surfboard Rentals has the board selection that I like. I usually get a performance long board of which they have a good selection. There boards are also in great condition, not like the rental stands on the beach. Since I have my board with me I can surf dawn patrol and glass off, not waiting for the beach stands to open. I don't have to trek my boards thru the airport as they have my board waiting for me in my hotel room the day I arrive. All I bring is a back pack and when I am ready to leave they pick up the board from my hotel...this is service! No one else comes close.

Michael- Huntington Beach,Ca.

Thank you very much for the excellent service. The board was awesome, and the delivery was within a minute of the stated drop-off time. We had a wonderful week on Oahu, and we can't wait to return. Thanks again.


What can I say? Dan is amazing! I have rented boards from Hawaii Surfboard Rentals the past 4 years now. Dan has my board ready the very same day I arrive!! Dan prides himself with great quality boards and prices. He is always willing to swap out boards with me if I want to try another board. I live on the east coast and we do not have any type of surfboard rental company like Hawaii Surfboard Rentals. For any of you that are looking for QUALITY and SATISFACTION, this is the place to rent your stick. Dan, thanks for your help and guidance throughout the years. I will see you next spring!


Tina Bryant
Alexandria, Virginia

Thank you again, everything went absolutely perfect. The boards looked great and your delivery/pick up was right on time. Waikiki is such a fun place to surf especially when you have a good stick to ride. The cost was far below than what it would have cost me to bring my own board over from California. See you next summer !

Blake R.
Huntington Beach, CA

This is the third year in a row we have used Hawaii Surfboard Rentals. Dan and his team provide the BEST service with boards ready to go when you arrive. The quality of boards is excellent and nothing is too much trouble for the team at HSR. We'll be back next year Dan! Mahalo.

Derek Sydney
Tom Melbourne

Just wanted to let you know I really had a great time with the surfboard. Timing was perfect! It got there just before I arrived at the hotel, and the board was probably still wet from my morning surf session when it was picked up at the end of my stay. It worked great for me alone, and I even caught some waves with my 5 year old twins (one at a time) on the nose.

I will certainly be recommending you to other surfers I know headed to Hawaii and will use you again in the future.

- Peter Bond

This is my 2nd time using Hawaii Surfboard Rentals and I was very stoked on the 8'6'' mini-long board that Dan selected for me! I took it to Diamond Head twice when there was an overhead southeast swell running and the board was able to make some steep drops and also easy to turn. Perfect for my 197 lb weight. Dan also goes the extra mile to recommend surf spots AND provide printed directions, such as White Plains Beach on the westside. The other people at HSR are real friendly and the delivery service is really prompt and accommodating. Last winter when I weighed less I got barreled on an inside 10ft. face at Sunset on one of HSR's surfboards! Much Mahalo!

Jim Sparks

Dan was responsive in a timely and courteous, professional manner. He delivered exactly what I had order, when he said he would. If more businesses operated the way he does, they would all be great experiences. Thanks again Dan. Hope to do business with you and your organization again, soon!

JT, South Lake Tahoe.

This is my second time using Hawaii Surfboard Rentals services, and just like the first time, the service was outstanding. I landed in Honolulu at 11 AM, got to the hotel at 1 PM. The board was already waiting for me, along with wax and leash. By 3 PM, I was paddling out. The boards are like new, and there are many different models to choose from. There is no time wasted looking for a board, just like if you had your own. The board was picked up right before my departure. Service couldn't be better ! I highly recommend! Mahalo Dan!

I hope to be back to Oahu some day!

Big time ALOHA!! Thanks for everything, from help with board selection to board drop off to board pick up and even nice south swell. Keep doing what you're doing. Call me any time you're in the Hilo area.

Kaniela K.

Been said a million times, but Dan is the man! I really appreciate your willingness to reach our needs in every way. Surfing and boards were right on.

JBH - Houston, Texas

Thank you for the great customer service we had recently renting your boards. Our stay in Honolulu at the Embassy Suites Waikiki was fabulous. My kids loved the island and surfing. My little one really had fun on the boogie board. We took a family photo with the boards, this will be our Christmas photo for cards this year coming. Thanks again for making our board rental so easy.

Marilyn Gillespie

Just a quick note to say that your rental service is awesome! My wife and I recently returned from a stay at the Park Shore and our rental boards were waiting for us the moment we arrived. The equipment was in great shape, and everything we needed and expected was there. Far more convenient and stress-free than bringing our own boards from the mainland. Thanks again for such high quality service. Aloha!


I have used Hawaii Surfboard Rentals twice now & will continue to use them and recommend them to all my friends visiting Oahu. Dan is just the nicest guy - super easy-going & accommodating. Before I discovered Hawaii Surfboard Rentals I struggled with the crappy, water-logged, over-priced rental boards on Waikiki beach. Never again. Hawaii Surfboard Rentals offers a wide variety of high-quality boards from well-known shapers. The prices are very fair especially if you rent for the whole week. With so much left to chance on vacation (bad weather, no swell, flight cancellations) know you can rest easy with your board rentals - just leave it up to Dan!

Los Angeles

The service was awesome. First I need to say how accommodating you were with my schedule and situation, that was first class bro! I know I was a little crazy changing plans on you a couple times. I said I was going to be in Waikiki Monday for the pickup, now I'm going to be in North Shore; (2 days later) nope, now Waikiki, and you rolled with it. It was the best, seriously. The Takayama was an AMAZING board, loved the big hatchet fin. Beautiful rides, perfect memories. I'm not a novice who was just learning to surf in Waikiki. I've been at it a while surfing for over 10 years here in Florida, so hopefully that gives a little credit to my words. You definitely exceeded my expectations. Thanks for making it so easy. I will definitely use you again when I'm back in Oahu.

Mark N.

I am so glad I found www.HawaiiSurfboardRentals.com . I traveled to Hawaii for a company incentive trip but knew the number one thing I wanted to do was surf. Since I am familiar with the hassle and prices of renting at the beach in Santa Cruz, I loved the idea of a surfboard being dropped off and picked up right at my hotel on Waikiki beach, and the price was right. The first day on the waves I ran into a surf instructor who noticed that I would probably do better on a longer board. I called Dan in the afternoon and he delivered a new board to me, no problem! Now that is service! Mahalo. If I am ever lucky enough to travel again to Hawaii, I will call Hawaii Surfboard Rentals!

Lisa Gampel
Chico, California

My recent Hawaii Surfboard Rentals experience was even better than I expected. Not only did I save money and hassle by not shipping my own boards but also Dan's friendly, enthusiastic advise on where to surf and what to expect made the whole experience a real pleasure. We both agreed on the best boards for current South and North Shore conditions and the boards selected, along with soft racks, were waiting for me at each hotel we stayed at. Upon departing for home , I simply left the board with the hotel baggage manager for later pick up by Dan's crew. Doesn't get any easier than that!

Mahalo Dan and we will be doing business again real soon.

Terry Siviter

The board(s) were awesome and the service was awesome, (as usual). I cannot think of renting through anyone else. Talk to you next time we're on the islands.

~Chris & Darci

And a new online board rental service, HawaiiSurfboardRentals.com, makes ferrying cumbersome board bags on and off planes a thing of the past. I reserved a board online before I left and it was waiting at the Beach Club when I arrived. When I was through, they came to my door and picked it up - all for less than it would have cost to bring my own board on the plane.

Coast Magazine Feb. 2008
So close, Yet so far away

Staying all the way up at the North Shore we were wondering how we would find affordable surfboards to rent. Also, as semi-experienced surfers, we weren't interested in soft-tops or other low quality boards. Hawaii Surfboard Rentals solved both those problems with a click of the mouse! Our boards arrived at our cottage right when we did, they were completely affordable, and they were perfect for our skill level. Renting boards through Hawaii Surfboard Rentals allowed us to surf all over the island with ease. When we come back to Oahu, we are definitely renting with them again.

- Rob

If your renting boards on Oahu this is the only way to fly. Hawaii Surfboard Rentals has a great selection of boards and they were cheaper than the other places we checked that don't deliver. Having boards waiting when we arrived at the hotel was awesome, we were in the water less than an hour after our plane touched down .Thanks again Dan for a great experience!

Kevin and Markas

I was really impressed with Hawaii Surfboard Rentals. Having a surfboard waiting for me when I arrived at the hotel made me feel like some kind of multi-millionaire. When the waves got smaller, and I wanted a bigger board, a quick call was all that was needed to make a new board appear in my hotel's surfboard rack. The boards seemed almost new, and it was nice to avoid the hassle of renting on the beach -- most days I paddled out before the beach rentals were even open.


Northern California

Hawaii Surfboard Rentals IS the way to go if you need a board on Oahu! We were staying in a private residence outside of Haleiwa on the North Shore and Dan found it no problem. We had an 8 a.m. to noon delivery time and Dan was there first thing! It wasn't like the cable guy showing up at 11:59. In fact, Dan was even willing to drop off the boards the night before so we would have them first thing in the morning. Unfortunately, unlike Dan, we had trouble finding our rental house and couldn't coordinate a time to meet.

Not only that, but Dan was extremely flexible with us while we were on the island. On our pick-up day we had a noon to 4 p.m. pick-up slot and we asked to shoot closer to 4 to allow more time with the boards and Dan was glad to accommodate. Plus, the equipment was great. I actually had a brand new 9'2" NSP that was hard to give back. There is just a certain pride a surfer gets from waxing a brand new board. It was the blank canvas we needed on which to paint our perfect Hawaiian vacation!

All in all, an A+. Thanks for making our trip seamless!


Paul E.

Totally awesome, I couldn't ask for more. I can't believe I lucked out with that south swell that hit during my stay in February. Surfing Waikiki is just so much fun and having a good board for a good swell made my trip to Hawaii one that will be remembered always. The service that Hawaii Surfboard Rentals provided made renting a surfboard 100 times better plus the board I rented was better than my own back home. Much thanks and I'll see you next winter.

Dr. Derick K.

Thank you so much for your awesome customer service. The board and the surfing was outstanding. Now, I'm going to have to get used to wearing a 4-3 wetsuit again. Looking forward to another Hawaiian vacation.

I've been surfing the island of Oahu for over 30 years and have never come across a surfboard rental company on the island that can provide quality products, superior service and personable customer service like the family business of Hawaii Surfboard Rentals. I send this testimonial in hopes to convince anyone out there researching surfing on Oahu that as far as surfing equipment goes you're fully covered with HSR. My wife's and I longboard was delivered on time by HSR driver Sean, was picked up on time by HSR driver Manny and the 10' Bear and 9'0 Hobie we rented was in better shape than the shop in Honolulu I used to rent my Surftech's from. Dan, the owner, was top notch and super friendly from beginning to end from reservation to surf report and secret surf break scoops. Thanks again for everything and I'm glad I found you.

A.J. and Ashley B.

Dan the Man!! You are the man and I had a great time surfing the island of Oahu with Hawaii Surfboard Rentals 10' South Point DK Comp. The board rips and I was able to take the biggest bottom turns at Velzy's and Kammies plus throw in a few nose rides at Diamond Head during the February south swell I lucked out on. I'm also super stoked I ran into you at Pupukea, I had an awesome time catching waves with you and the waves were going off. Definitely looking forward to giving Hawaii Surfboard Rentals a ring when I come back to the islands next winter. Take care and keep up the good work on this biz.

Jenson Kane

Thanks again for all your help last week! We were a bit apprehensive at first ordering surfboards over the internet but your advice, service, and the quality of the boards were more than we ever expected. Many thanks for swinging by our condo and fixing the fin on one of our boards that we broke so we could hit the beach again first thing the next morning! All the best in the future,

Matt F

Thanks again Dan for your excellent service and knowledge. Your flexibility and willingness to accommodate our schedule AND allow us to upgrade our boards made our surfing experience that much greater! I would recommend your service to ANYONE interested in a fun, effortless surfing journey in paradise. The prompt board drop-off and pick-up, free board wax (shark bait tropical with sticker that my son has on his locker at school) and quality boards with leashes makes it so convenient for visitors especially in the Honolulu/Waikiki area! All we had to worry about is waiting for a wave (which is MUCH better than waiting for an e-mail or phone call) and catching it. I'm not sure when we will get back, but when we do, we will definitely give you a ring for more boards and surf!

Mahalo, Aloha and A hui hou my friend,

Bryan and Tyler C.

I wanted to drop you a quick THANK YOU note. Traveling with kids can be a nightmare when bringing boards with you. Thanks to HSR, I was able to ride some super fun waves on a great board without the hassles or expense of bringing my boards with me. I will absolutely refer everyone I know who's headed to Oahu to HSR in the future.

Todd C.

I am ever so grateful for the rental. I had the most amazing time on the 10' Robert August board. I mostly surfed between Sheraton & Halekulani, I think its called Three's. It was so much fun. What was great about my rental was the convenience of having a surfboard available to me at anytime,the reasonable rates and the great condition of the surfboard was primo. Thank you so much for your services.

Another Satisfied Customer

Thanks so much for the rental this week. The drop off and pickup went really smooth, and I enjoyed the board at seven different breaks during the week, from knee high junk to clean overhead.

Just wanted to say thanks for the great service. Dan was at our hotel on time and had everything we needed. I will definitely use you guys again and recommend you to all my friends. Until next time, Mahalo

What a great service!! The surfboard was in tip top condition and the HSR experience was five star. I'll definitely be calling you guys up for my next trip. Thanks for dropping the board off at the hotel prior to my arrival.

The service from Hawaii Surfboard Rentals was a hassle free experience. All that was promised was delivered and the condition of the board was first class. If I were to return to Waikiki and needed a longboard, I would not bother taking my own and would quite happily rent one from HSR.

Thanks and Regards

The service was outstanding - you managed a brand new Bear 10' within 2 hours of my arrival at my hotel (quicker than they managed to get the room ready!) and my hair was still wet from my last surf session when you arrived to get it back. The board rode like a dream. Outstanding service from friendly, knowledgeable and totally reliable surfers. Even managed to arrange my first experience of hurricane swell ... Thanks for everything - I'll be recommending you to all of my mates coming over.

I never thought I would be surfing in one day, but you guys made it happen. I let my ego talk for me at first and you guys let me, but you knew what I really needed and provided me with the right board and lesson. In no time I was up and and surfing.

I just want to thank you for the great service, HSR delivered the boards on time and picked them up at my convenience. Renting from HSR also gave me the opportunity to try an epoxy board for the first time. My family and I really enjoyed the boards we rented, and I enjoyed your Aloha spirit as part of the package. The price was right and your business is a service that is un-paralleled. Good luck with your company and I hope I will be back soon as a returning customer.

I've reserved surfboards from HSR for the past 3 years. It has been a wonderful experience dealing with Dan. The boards that HSR offers are in great condition!! If you are not happy with the board you rented, Dan will gladly come and swap it out for something else. Dan, you are the bomb!! Thanks for making the whole Hawaiian experience wonderful! Anybody that reads this testimony,please do not get your boards from any place else. You won't regret renting your stick from Dan and his team.

Qantas are now charging $146 aus. to transport a longboard from Sydney to Honolulu and that includes business class passengers..add the cost of transportation from airport to Waikiki and the hassles and concern about damage or loss it makes good sense to book a board thru the internet.The service provided to me by Hawaii Surfboard Rentals left nothing to be desired. I would certainly follow the same approach in the future and in particular with HSR ...Thanks.

Dr. Paul Despas

You guys were truly great, from communication to delivery, the change out, the quality of the boards, the pick up and payment all were done on time and correctly. Aaron and I had a great time surfing small waves on longboard's at Canoes. It had been 36 years since the last time I surfed Canoes.

Thank you very much!

Working with Hawaii Surfboard Rentals created the most odd experience I have ever had while going on a surf trip. It was the first time where getting a board I liked to surf on was actually one of the easiest things I did on the trip. Normally, I am jamming my boards through LAX airport, paying ridiculous transfer fees, then praying my boards return home in one piece (which they rarely do).

With Hawaii Surfboard Rentals I had nothing to worry about. They delivered and picked up the board I chose on time, as promised, and with no worries. They were also way cool at providing information on the types of breaks my buddies and I wanted to surf and which ones we should probably avoid. Any time we hit Oahu they will for sure be our first call for the surfboard hook-up.

Aloha! Once again HSR had our boards ready to go at our hotel for our early morning surf session. The boards were new, had leashes and performed great. Thanks again for some good boards and a good deal.

Mahalo's - Team Tiger

Thanks again for everything! This was a great experience from the start when you somehow found a way to deliver and store the boards even before I arrived. You swapped a board mid-week for us, always called when you said you would, and were just totally first class. It is rare these days to find such high level, friendly service.

Thanks again for a great experience!

Matt G.

Thanks again for your great service. The boards were what you promised and delivered on time. Not having to worry about bringing my boards on the airlines and getting damaged takes the stress out of traveling.



My daughter and I just rented a couple of boards from you for our two week stay in Waikiki. Glad we made the right choice. Nice folks, great service and equipment.



Thanks again for the great service you provide. Delivery and pick-up was right on time, even with Waikiki traffic! The 10-2 NSP worked excellent. I had nice rides from Canoes all the way to the inside, right to my hotel! My daughter even got her first surfing lesson on it. I'll recommend you guys to all my friends.

Mahalo from So Cal, see you in a few months!

Mitch I.

Just wanted to say thanks for the good service you provided for us, getting the second boogie board and fins on short notice. The equipment HSR provided was excellent. And although the surf was small we still had a great time. Next time were in Hawaii we know where to go for boards. Keep up the good work.

Take care...

Tim, Tim & Mike

Again I wanted to thank you for helping make my time on Oahu truly great. By going through Hawaii Surfboard Rentals I was able to get a board delivered and picked up where I was staying, what can be more customer-focused than that!
But the thing that I wanted to make sure you (and anybody else who cares to read) know was your level of professionalism in dealing with me resulting in meeting all expectations I had. You always responded when you said you would, did what you said you would do, be there when you said you would be there. And you always kept in communication and available for any questions regarding the status of things, etc. The peace of mind this gave me as a customer was a great relief; especially for a surfer who wants to get in the water. We are all surfers, and renting boards can be a really shaky proposition, but the way you operate dispels the unease and apprehension.
I will make sure to let all others know of your business when they decide to go to Oahu.


The board was great - new, in great shape, modern tech, and a great way to try a board I've been thinking of buying. The service was top notch - friendly, easy to engage, timely and convenient. Now - here's my unique part - if you have a little surf experience under your belt, you're thinking of staying in Waikiki and renting a board - don't let the rumors of a ugly locals scene in the water deter you. I was on a popular break with a mix of short and long boards. Most of the crew of 20 to 25 in the line-up knew each other to varying degrees. The surf was good and getting better. Guys and gals went out of their way to ask me about my background and if I was having a good time. On a couple of occasions - some of the older guys said; "Hey - Arizona (that's the nick name I got), paddle into this one. Don't miss it!" The message was clear to all the grommets - share it up a bit. It was way cool. Also - watching the young talent put on their show from the channel was a real treat.

Had an epic time in HI. The waves were off the hook the first two days, and as HSR promised my board was waiting for me at the hotel along with wax, directions to a surf spot I had not been to in a few years, and roof racks for the rental car. This allowed me to be in the water no worries at 6:00 am that first day, and the next, and the next, and the next. And unlike previous rental experiences I was on a high quality board. Can't wait to rent from you guys again. Mahalo


Just wanted to say thank you to Hawaii Surfboard Rentals. I got in a little late to my hotel and was worried that I wouldn't be able to get the boards in time to surf the next day but that was not a problem. The boards came the next day fast and were in excellent shape. Thank you for the great service. Will rent from you again.

-Keith W.

Thanks again for the great service you provide at Hawaii Surfboard Rentals. I was a bit unsure about hiring a surfboard over the net (what would I really get? Would it turn up? Would I get ripped off? Would I get stuck with no board and have to hire some junk?). I have usually brought my own from Australia in the past.

It was really refreshing to experience some good old fashion service. Everything you said you would do – you did.

- The board was a very new Takayama 9’6”.
- You met me at the hotel on time as promised.
- The free block of wax and leg rope was a great touch.
- Your Aloha is genuine.
- Somehow you even managed to arrange some swell for the 2 weeks I was in town.

I will be telling all my buddies here in Australia not to bother lugging longboard's half way around the world in future. It really makes the traveling much easier and is very wife friendly to boot.

I will most definitely be seeing you again for Hawaii trip number 8 – the planning has already begun.

Thanks again mate.

Best regards

I just wanted to thank you guys again for getting me a great board for my honeymoon. You had it waiting for me at our vacation rental just as promised, and I saved almost $100 renting a board through you rather than bringing mine from Florida.. It was also nice to know those epoxy boards are almost indestructible, I surfed everything from big Sunset to fast and hollow Off The Wall and the board performed perfectly without worry. I wish there was a service like this at all the places I've surfed on vacation!


Chris, Florida

Great board … great service … no worries … Thank you!


What can I say!. I came to the Islands hoping the board I had reserved on the internet turned up at my hotel. Not only did it turn up on time, it was straight out of the box, brand new, not even being waxed up for the first time. This was the 9'6" Walden Magic Model, the same board I have at home. You told me this was the board you would have for me and even called me on my cell in Florida to tell me the board had arrived. You said you would be at the hotel 2.00 pm Friday to pick up the board and you were. Great service, great board, great trip. If you are going to Oahu and need a board call Hawaii Surfboard Rentals, if you don't you are making a big mistake.

Aloha and Mahalo

Stay wet

Mac, Florida

Hi there!

I really enjoyed the board, service and price when I rented from you in November. I was the first person ever to get to to ride the Takayama Model T that you got in. Coming from Japan where it is expensive to take your own board on a trip, your service is perfect.

I told my friend Matt about you and he should be placing a rental order for his honeymoon trip.


I'll be sure to use you again on my next trip as well.

- Jordan W.

Just a quick note to say thanks. Boards were in tip top condition, delivery service was great.
Will definitely be calling you again next year.

- Jamie D.

I just wanted to thank you again for the fantastic service while I rented my surfboard from your company. You made it a great experience and I appreciate all your help. I will definitely recommend your company and refer my friends to you. Mahalo!

- Nicole V.

Thanks for the help, you have made our trip a whole lot easier for us.

- Tyson

Two other teachers an I recently brought our surfing club to the North Shore. We rented our boards through your fine organization and everything went extremely well. The boards were in excellent shape and delivered when promised. We even asked for them to be picked up later than scheduled (so we could surf pipeline on our last morning) and you accommodated us! We will be back next year and plan on reserving our boards through Hawaiisurfboardrentals.com once more. Thanks for the great service!!!

- Rich M. Jr., Sturgis Charter Public School, Cape Cod, Massachusetts

Thanks! It was nice to rent boards from you. You truly carry the aloha spirit. We'll be back.

- Mark K.

I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for your help with the lesson and the surfboard rental.

We had a great time in Hawaii and the surfing was a big part of it. I have friends who will be vacationing in Hawaii later this year. I will definitely give them your name as a contact for all of their surfing-related needs.

Thanks again.

- Regards, Sean

Our trip to Oahu went flawless and having surfboards delivered to our resort around our schedule was a big help! Thanks for the flexibility, great boards, and friendly service.

- Sincerely, Jason T.

You guys are Aces! Your service was superlative! I arrived, made a call, you showed up within an hour! I was out of my mind surfing Kaisers, 3's and Pops on a solid South swell! Thank you, thanks and mahalo to you!!! I will always rent from you guys when in Oahu. If you guys are ever in San Diego and need a hand, please call.

- Aloha, Roger E. R.

Thank you so much for helping to make our stay in Oahu such a blast! Our “simple” vacation turned into a surfing vacation that will be cherished forever. Your service – from board selection to board delivery and pick-up was simply outstanding my friend. The fact that the boards were new and not beat-up old slabs was simply wonderful as well. You even brought the wax! Hawaii Surfboard Rentals is simply the best and most economical, easy to use, service on the Island. See you next year!

- Sincerely, Scott

I was happy to find a surfboard rental company on Oahu who rented good boards at good rates. What I paid for an entire week of rental would have only covered a few hours from one of the "on-the-beach" rentals. The delivery to and pick-up from my hotel was great because I didn't have to waste any time looking for a board while on vacation. I am recommending your services to anyone who is planning to travel to surf on Oahu, but doesn't want the hassles of flying boards with the airlines. Thanks for helping me with my surfing needs.

- Mahalo and aloha, Judd S.

Your service was great. Before I could unpack my luggage, you arrived with the surfboard and the racks. I was able to go surfing that very same afternoon. The surfboard and racks where in GREAT shape - they looked brand new to me. Anytime I visit Hawaii, you'll be one of the first calls I make.

- Thanks, Bert

Thanks a million for your great service. We had a blast in Waikiki and your rental made it super.

- All the best, Bill L.

Awesome service !! I'm coming back to Hawaii next year so I've got you added to my favorites.
Take care of that 6'4" for me. Thanks a bunch and I'll see you soon.

- Sincerely, Autumn H.

Luckily using the Internet technology I quickly found an outfit called Hawaii Surfboard Rentals and I called them up. They not only dropped off the board at the hotel but also will be picking up the board on the day of departure at 6:00 AM. Perfect! I can do a DP before taking off back for SFO for the noon flight! So I got 9'2 NSP board. Now I can go surfing in anytime I want and as often as I want! This is very great.

The board rocks.. it's perfect.
