In early 2000, we created our company with a very simple idea in mind: to provide our guests with not only a surf lesson, but a surfing experience that would rival the most memorable times of their lives. Our combination of the very best island firefighter surf instructors, a pristine secluded beach with perfect rolling beginner waves and the use of state-of-the-art safety equipment has been our recipe for success.We take great pride in our crew who really know the meaning of teamwork and the value of a quality experience. We've received hundreds of testimonial letters and emails telling us that it was not just the surf lesson, but also the instructors and staff that made their experience so special. Our team is rooted in the values of the Fire Service which translates to "taking care of people", above everything else. Thank you for taking the time to check out Hawaiian Fire Surf School, providers of the best surf lesson on Oahu. When you are in Hawaii, let us teach you to surf and give you the experience of a lifetime. « less

Our 11-year-old daughter and her friend took private surfing lessons at the Hawaiian Fire Surf School, and it ended up being probably the most memorable and amazing part of our entire vacation! The staff was great, very interactive and positive; thorough in their safety instruction while adding the right touch of humor; and obviously extremely knowledgable about their craft. The... More

Our first trip to Hawaii landed on my daughter's 10th birthday and her only request was we try surfing. The 1:1 lesson was perfect and Sean had her up and riding waves in no time. Despite a few laughs at my first attempts I was up and catching waves before long too. Many thanks Hawaiian Fire for helping me show... More

I'm 67 years old and always wanted to try surfing. My son who is 22 and I took the surfing lesson from Hawaiian Fire. The instructors were spot on with safety and technique. Lance really helped me to achieve my goal of showing my younger son that Pop could still do things at his age. I got up several times... More

I'm so glad we booked this experience for our recent trip to Hawaii. My family, including our daughters aged 14 and 10 had an amazing time. I was very impressed with how professional they were - I would highly recommend them! We were picked up at our hotel in Ko Olin and drove the short drive to the beach. After... More

The team really knows how to teach and get you up and riding. This is the 2nd year my family booked this excursion and it was better than the last year. After the safety introduction and quick instruction, off into the water with your board. They have training boards which they size to body size and type. Everyone on our... More

We are a 40ish couple with a 7 year old son and took lessons the first week of April. Due to my son's age, he had Noah teaching him 1:1. My little guy was very nervous so they rode together and despite a few initial tears, he did well. My husband doesn't swim so was nervous to do this but... More

We took 4 teenagers to this program over spring break. None of them had previously surfed before, and all of them were standing up on their boards in no time. The instructors were friendly and encouraging, and it was just long enough that the kids were not too tired out. They have a photographer who takes photos from the shore... More

If you are vacationing in Hawaii, then you must try the sport of Hawaiian kings and queens. Hawaiian Fire has great instructors! My kids (ages 10, 12 & 15) took lessons in the Ko Olina area. The beach HF used was awesome! Not crowded and the break was closer. Much better than the break in Waikiki. Don't forget to get... More

My 13 year old son and I took in a lesson during Spring Break and it could not have gone better. The team that taught us were so friendly, helpful and capable - I felt comfortable the minute we met up with them on the beach. We were staying at Aulani but we drove ourselves, instead of getting a ride... More

My 12 year old son took lessons from Hawaiian Fire and loved it! I watched the lessons from the beach and took lots of pictures. I was so amazed at how fast he picked it up and was surfing!!! I felt like it was safe and the firefighters were very experienced. For a mom, what more could you want than... More
