Enjoy a 2-hour surfing lesson with an experienced guide who is also a professional lifeguard in Hawaii. Learn to read the surf and ride the waves during a lesson that includes instruction on the beach followed by practice in the warm waters of Oahu’s North Shore. This family-friendly experience provides plenty of customized attention and fun, along with the chance to view the sea turtles that are commonly found in this area.
What to Expect
Meet at the indicated location on the North Shore at your selected time to meet with your surf instructor.

Your instructor and her dogs will first give you some on-shore instructions and safety information, and then you will head out into the surf. The waves will be small and fun perfect for beginners, children, and entire families; or come alone and receive personalized attention.

if you've always dreamed of surfing, now is your chance to get surf stoked for 2 full hours of instruction. If the fun of surfing isn't enough to entice you, most people encounter sea turtles and other beautiful ocean life while in the waves.

We offer multiple options to accommodate groups or opt for a more  personal experience with our private and semi-private options.
