This was one of the coolest experiences I've ever had. Matt was our instructor and he was so friendly and encouraging. My mom started to get sea sick and he was kind enough to have some one paddle her back to shore. They got some amazing pictures of us and the package was only $40 for pics and videos. They provide you with a pair of shoes and a rash guard shirt as well as the boards. Definitely the highlight of the trip and would love to return in the future.

Domonique, thank you so much for the review, and we hope you had a wonderful 30th birthday!! We're so sorry to hear that your mom got seasick, but we're so glad that Matt and the team were able to help her! If you both decide to surf again (which we sure hope you do!), we'd recommend taking a remedy about an hour beforehand to help with any sea sickness, with the approval of your doctor of course! Mahalo from the OSP team!!

Hands down the best surfing lessons you can get. It was the highlight of our trip this time in Oahu. Our instructor Nick was excellent, super experienced and patient. His coaching style was easy to understand, very pleasant and also extremely fun as you're learning. I could stand up right away after following his instructions which I was never able to do before. Definitely worth the experience! Highly recommend!

GREAT experience. So, for my first surf experience in my 60's you were the best. Keola was amazing--patient, funny, great stories of the island and history of surfing. You helped me learn, Mark documented and my husband and I had a great time. Thank you so much for a memorable experience. I highly recommend this team.

Excellent experience for our two 14 year old granddaughters. Their instructor was Mark and he was great with them. The two hours was so much fun and he made sure they got plenty of waves. They’re hooked surfers now! Highly recommend Ohana Surf Project!

This was the number one requested activity by our kids (ages 12 & 15) on our vacation to Oahu. They had a few lessons prior on the Texas coast which helped them dive right into the Waikiki waves. The coaches were amazing and they absolutely enjoyed the surf lessons. The location was great for us to watch the kids from the shore of Queen’s Beach. The staff takes cameras out during the lessons so there are photos and videos available to purchase after the lesson. The prices were very reasonable and we are so glad to have these memories. The shuttle pickup from our hotel was very convenient. I highly recommend Ohana Surf!

First time surfers and already planning for the next time! From first to the very end, we enjoyed every minute of the lesson. Our instructor was Damian, super friendly, helpful and fun. All of the instructors were super friendly and really great teachers. Everyone in our group was able to get up and and surf! They made it super easy and fun. Our 2 hrs lesson flew by so fast. Wish we have booked 2 days, but they are fully booked for the rest of our stay here in Waikiki. Mahalo! -AL and Ava

My teen boys LOVED this experience. They were up on the boards within minutes. The staff was friendly, communicative and helpful. So helpful that they had the gear needed. The whole experience is so well organized. My kids felt safe and had so much fun. They wanted to go out again with Ohana Surf but we ran out of time.
Highly recommend.

What an awesome experience for my 15 and 17 year old. Nick Morelli was an outstanding surfing instructor and an all around great guy!

Lessons were excellent and both kids were able to successfully surf by the end of the lesson. Both kids are asking to do another lesson and were so thrilled with how successful they were in riding the waves!!

Couldn’t be happier!!

All I wanted to do was surf once before I left hawaii because god only knows when I'd get another chance. My "group lesson" which was totally by myself (thanks for saving me $30 guys) was to say the least INCREDIBLE. Did that enthusiasm come through the computer ok for you? I'll try again IIIIINNNNNCCCCCRRRRREEEEEDDDDDIIIIIBBBBBLLLLLEEEEE. Thanks Chelsea for putting up with me, my headache, my laziness and for being such a pleasure to chat with. If you can get me to stand up on a surf board you can do anything!
