    What to Expect
    Once you've checked in at the shop, you will be directed to the complimentary lockers. It is highly recommended that any removable items such as hats, jewelry, eye wear and bags, towels etc are left in the locker which surfing as they will be very difficult to recover if lost.  You will be introduced to your instructor and fitted with a rash guard. In regards to apparel, only a rash guard and bikini bottoms/board shorts are required.

    Your instructor will give instruction to help quickly master the techniques needed to take on the legendary Hawaiian surf. Everyone in your private group will get an opportunity to show off their skills and practice the process before heading to the beach. Take your time and ask questions! This process is a big key to success!

    Next your group walk across the street to the beach, don't worry about carrying boards, there's a cart that does the work for us. Once you get to the beach the instructor will set the boards up on the beach and help you strap on the leash. Off into the beautiful clear warm water you go. You will paddle out to where the waves are breaking, with your instructor by your side to help you and guide you the whole time.

    Now the real fun begins, paddle-paddle, paddle-paddle, stand-up and ride!

    Wonderful lesson for beginners in Waikiki, highly recommended. Just a little disappointing that the photographer didn't come at work.

    We had 4 kids - ages 9,10,11, and 12 take their 1st surf lesson. From our initial phone call to the lesson with the instructors, and getting the pictures after, I was very impressed with Big Wave Dave's-- the staff was super friendly and helpful throughout. Troy and Johnny

    We got a surfing lesson for our sons, 22 and 17. They had a blast! They were both able to get up on the board multiple times throughout the lesson. Aleka (not sure I am spelling it right) was a fabulous instructor and was very personable. Everyone at the shop was very friendly
