The team at OSC is really great: I took a private lesson with Jayden and he was awesome. It was my first time surfing and I was pretty nervous . He taught me the technique but also shared some Jedi mind tricks to understand the psychology of surfing which did the trick. After that I was able to stand on each and every wave. I even go invited to the team barbecue. Jayden, Matt, Troy, Jenna, Kevin and the whole team are all really nice people and make you feel welcome and safe. Highly recommend!

I never thought of surfing as I was scared of the ocean my whole life. A friend convinced me to give it a try and I couldn't believe what happened in the following 4 weeks. The surf lessons not only took my fears away but they made me fall in love with the ocean. I owe this to the wonderful team of the Ohana Surf Project. Each lesson I had was a highlight. They taught me a lot within a short time. Their team spirit is outstanding and you can feel that they love to share their passion of surfing with people of all age groups and all experience levels. They teach with a lot of patience, fun and motivation. Quickly you feel like part of their family. Even when i started to go surfing by myself, they were still helping and coaching whenever they saw me in the water. I can't imagine that I could have had better surf instructors. Thank you from my heart to the whole Ohana Surf Project Family! Maria xx

My 11 year old son had a 2 hour private lesson. From the booking, registration to the lesson it was easy to work with them. Professional and efficient but also friendly and fun. They spend most of the time in the water and had him up on the board for a few seconds right away and for 15 or 20 by the end. I would definitely recommend them.

My granddaughter's wish was to surf at Waikiki, and so we both went out with Troy. It was a beautiful day, and the location down toward the aquarium is great- away from the crowds and refreshments nearby. We were set up with great equipment, instructed in the basics on dry land, then paddled out to the waves. Troy timed the runs perfectly, and we were both standing up on our first attempts. Great coach, great organization, and flexible pickup and drop off anywhere around Waikiki. Highly recommended.

As parents of an 11 year old daughter we were initially nervous and only selected the 1 hour package. We were not sure how she would do. The instructor offered the 2 hour lesson if she was confident and wanted to continue. It was a nice and non-sales pushy atmosphere.
The picture deal was great for us because of the one on one instruction there were a ton of good pictures and several videos.
The family package is also a great deal and will try that next time.

I have a one on one 2 hour surfing lesson with Chelsea. The lesson was a fantastic experience and Chelsea's instruction was helpful and insightful. I've surfed before and had lessons previously but nothing was a good as Chelsea and Ohana Surf Project. It was clear that Chelsea cared and was totally committed to helping me improve on the water. She was patient and kind and I felt well looked after and importantly to me, that I mattered.
After the lesson on the water, we sat down and reviewed the video and photos from the session. These offered even more insight into what was working and the areas where improvements could be made. I was not originally going to purchase the pack but decided on the spot it was well worth it. They quality is excellent and it makes for a great memento of your time on the water.
On days when I rocked up to rent a board from OSP, I was always welcome, the crew chatted and shared tips and this extended to out on the water too. It really is a true ohana and I am so happy that I chose OSP for lesson and rentals. I'd absolutely go back to them again and I totally recommend them. Professional, helpful and friendly. Aloha and mahalo!

My son, Ted, took surf lessons with Ohana Surf Project in August 2017 and had wonderful experiences. OSP's surf coaches are the best! Also, they take really good pictures (extra charge) for their customers.
