Tour Highlights

Group Surf Lessons:

One of our most popular lessons, the group lesson is perfect for first-time surfers.
We start with basic water safety principles and a land lesson before going in the ocean. If you don’t have a group, no worries! We’ll put one together for you. Must be 14 years or older for group lesson.

Semi-Private Surf Lessons:

The semi-private lesson accommodates up to three students. It’s perfect for couples, friends or family members who want to learn surfing together and get personalized coaching from one instructor. You’ll be able to catch more waves than the group lesson. Even better, your instructor will adjust to each person’s skill level.

Private Surf Lessons:

We recommend private lessons for children between the ages of 5 and 14, intermediate to advanced surfers, beginners and those who just want the extra attention. Your instructor will be able to guide you and teach you whatever you want to learn—whether it’s mastering the bottom turn or learning how to carve the wave.

Included Features

- Reef walkers
- Rashguard
- Leash

What To Expect

Most importantly we want you to have fun while learning how to surf and make the most out of the beach instructions before heading into the water.

Our typical surf lesson is 2 hours long and consists of a technique slide show, a safety briefing, a land lesson, and time spent in the water.

30 minutes on land.
90 minutes in the water, roughly, catching waves.
If you’re visiting the tropical waters of Waikiki, surfing is a must. Our experienced surfer instructors will make sure you get as many waves as possible by pushing the back of your surfboard, giving you a burst of momentum.

After we push you into the wave you’ll hear us yell excitedly “stand up!” You’ll then use the technique we taught you on land to stand up on your board. And just like that, you’re surfing! Smile as our cameraman and drone pilot capture your rides perfectly.

Some of our students can stand up right away and others take a little longer. Either way, we guarantee you’ll be surfing by the end of the first surf lessons, especially because you’ll be doing it with friends.
