What to expect
To start off your lesson, we come pick you up! Our knowledgeable staff will meet you at one of our convenient hotel pick-up locations. You’ll be stoked to ride in our air-conditioned and clean, easy-to-spot, orange-and-black "surf school bus." After our friendly staff introduce themselves, we will shuttle you to one of Waikiki’s best bodyboarding spots located just outside of the foot traffic. Once by the ocean, you will meet your instructor and talk about your previous experience, swimming strength or any other concerns or conditions. Finally, we gear you up with reef shoes and rash guard shirts and have you walk your high quality lesson boards to the beach. When you’re comfortable and ready, we leash ourselves to the board and into the water we go! After the lesson, retreat to the shade of our on-site tent to relax, hang with our instructors, or enjoy the perspective of watching the waves you have just been riding! You can check out photographs, videos, the work of our cameraman or buy some swag for yourself or friends. Then after your purchases are made, we drive you back to our convenient drop off locations.

Best surf experience I could hope for!
Aug 2019
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

Jul 2019 • Family
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.

Grandpa and granddaughter surfing on first try!
Apr 2019 • Family
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.

First time surfing
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.

Brilliant Instruction, Fantastic Experience, True Ohana
Jan 2018 • Solo
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!

Great Lessons & Lots of Fun!
Aug 2017 • Family
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.
