My husband and I honeymooned in Hawaii over 20 years ago. It was our goal to be able to return with our three kids. Our family made it to Oahu just before the world changed to respond to the COVID19 global pandemic. We planned with Surf HNL the private surf lessons at Ko'Olina

Amazing experience, made my holiday the best one ever! I had only ever had one surfing lesson in my life before, so started as a complete rookie. By lesson three I was able to stay on the board most of the time. I took 6 lessons in total and have definitely found a new passion

Excellent. My instructor picked me up from my hotel and took me to a uncrowded beach. After some instructions he took me out. I got up and rode several times. Had a blast. My instructor was great.
