Take to the waves at the famous Waikiki Beach during this private 90-minute surfing lesson. Learn how to paddle and pop up from your longboard, first on the sand, and then test your newfound skills in the Pacific. Already know the basics? No problem, you receive tailored instruction based on your skill level. Want to introduce your little one to the sport? This surfing lesson is great for kids too!
What to Expect
Once you've checked in at the shop, you will be directed to the complimentary lockers. It is highly recommended that any removable items such as hats, jewelry, eye wear and bags, towels etc are left in the locker while surfing as they will be very difficult to recover if lost. You will be introduced to your instructor and fitted with a rash guard. In regards to apparel, only a rash guard and swimsuit/board shorts are required.

Your instructor will give a demonstration to help quickly master the techniques needed to take on the legendary Hawaiian surf. You will get an opportunity to show off their skills and practice the process before heading to the beach. Take your time and ask questions! This process is a big key to success!

Next you will walk across the street to the beach, don't worry about carrying boards, there's a cart that does the work for us. Once you get to the beach the instructor will set the boards up on the beach and help you strap on the leash. Off into the beautiful clear warm water you go. You will paddle out to where the waves are breaking, with your instructor by your side to help you and guide you the whole time.
