Overview
Surfing can be quite a dangerous sport if you hit the water before you know what you’re doing. This private surf lesson in Honolulu makes sure you get the training you need in a group of up to three friends or family members. Plus, a rash guard and surfboard are provided for you, and your instructor is CPR-certified.
Highlights
  • Feel safe during this surf lesson in Honolulu with CPR-trained instructors
  • Practice your surfing skills with up to three friends or family members
  • All equipment—a rash guard and surfboard—are provided for you
  • Choose from multiple lesson times to best suit your schedule
What to Expect
This private surfing lesson in Honolulu happens in the Waikiki Beach area. Once you meet up with your guide, you and your group of up to three people get suited up in rash guards. Your lesson starts on the beach. Find a surfboard you’d like to use for the day, and listen as your instructor teaches you the techniques of surfing while you're safely land. After each person in your group feels confident and ready, take to the water and ride the waves. Your private surf lesson ends on the beach, and you can choose to stay and enjoy the atmosphere, if you’d like.

Well worth it. Experienced instructors went the extra mile to make the time productive and enjoyable. Sean ensured that we learned the proper way to surf and we spent more time getting up than wiping out. Highly Recommended.

First off, their shop stand is located right on Waikiki Beach, parking on the streets out in front of US Army Museum. Shawn is our preferred instructor. Laid back, cares about you getting reps in, reading the waves (though we're still pretty bad at it). We've worked with
