Learn to surf on Oahu with a private surfing lesson at the North Shore. During 2 hours on the sand and in the sea, you’ll receive one-to-one attention from your dedicated surf instructor. Slip on a provided rash guard and head to the beach with a top-quality surfboard. Your lesson is geared toward the fundamentals of surfing, including paddling, popping up and — of course — how to catch a wave!

What to Expect
Lessons are geared to instruct the student in the fundamentals of surfing.
Instruction includes:
  • An explanation of the playing field
  • Reading the surf zone.
  • Surfing etiquette.
  • Timing and catching the wave.
  • The transition from paddling to standing.
Lessons are taught in a beautiful protected cove away from the bigger waves the North Shore of Oahu is known for . Upon arrival surf students are fitted with a surf shirt and a surf board and head straight to the sandy beach to start the beach portion of the lesson. While in the water, your instructor is right there with you to help, assisting you in catching waves and paddling back while, providing constructive feed back after each wave, answering your questions and keeping you safe.

Great time for the family!

This was our first trip to Hawaii and we really wanted to take our girls (ages 11 and 5) surfing for the first time. Carol (and Matt) were really knowledgeable and made the learning process so much easier. Their spot on the beach was easy...More

Outstanding in Every Respect

We booked a private lesson for my 8 year-old son and it was his favorite activity of the entire trip. The owner, Carol, took him out herself and rode tandem with him for more waves than we could count. It was a perfect combination of...More

Made it fun, easy, and safe!

I called in the morning and was able to schedule a time for the same day. At their recommendation, we chose the private lesson instead of the group lesson, because we had two children (6 and 8 years old) with us. Neither kids are swimmers....More
