Overview

Nothing is more iconic to Hawaii than surfing at Waikiki Beach. This is arguably the place where surfing was born, and the spot where watermen like Duke Kahanamoku helped introduce surfing to the world. The reason why this south facing coast is so perfect for learning to surf, is the fact that the bottom is soft, sandy, and the water is relatively shallow. During this surf lesson in Waikiki, you'll also notice the way the waves have a steady and gentle roll, which makes them far less intimidating than other waves on Oahu. Add in a long, stable board and a professional local instructor, and before you know it you'll be surfing a wave like ancient Hawaiians of old.

Nick and the other coach (sorry forgot his name) were very patient with me, pushing or dragging my board throughout the class.

Josh and Nobi were our surfing instructors. They were beyond wonderful. Both were very patient and gave excellent instructions and advice. We had them to ourselves (family of 5), so they were able to give us individualized attention the whole time. This was our favorite activity of our entire trip, and probably ranks in top 3 vacation excursions ever in my life. The reception at check-in was great. I didn't catch the gal's name, but she was friendly. Be prepared to bring water shoes and rash guard so you don't have to spend more money buying these items while you're there.

These guys are the BEST! When you get to the surf shop they give the lesson inside, which I love. No distractions from the outside or the heat. They let each student practice and show them the technique to get on the board. They where very thorough in explaining all the details. We had a great experience and where able to get up several times. Felt like real surfers! The instructors are very fun and encouraging. Definitely bringing the entire family back next time. Make sure to inquire about the photos/video. There is a guy there that will do a video shoot while you surf. He uses a drone and it’s super cool. Wish we would have done that. So worth it!

We had the most amazing experience. As first time surfers, we found the instructors to be so helpful. They were enthusiastic and encouraging. The group size was small enough that we all had the chance to catch several waves. Great for all ages! We will definitely do it again!

Really great outfit. They take the time to teach before hand and handle the logistics of getting the surfboards into and out of the water. They are really helpful, friendly and supportive in the water. This is my second lesson with them and I will be going for a third !

You should do smaller groups, kids had to wait too long to go in a line and try to get a wave. Your front desk personnel was so rude and hung up on my daughter when my daughter was trying to ask for directions. Trying to get there and not being a local and knowing where everything is, she was of no help. I would never come back here again the customer service was horrid !!! For the amount of money that I spent, I would never recommend this to anybody it’s not worth it.

The whole experience was fantastic. Perfect for first-time surfers. Chris, our instructor was great! He was very patient and made sure we all had fun. Waikiki is the perfect place to learn how to surf- the water is clear and the waves are on the smaller side. One of my favorite activities while in Oahu and I highly recommend trying it out.

My sister and I booked three days of lessons, and the instructors (Paul, Lee, Nick) were very helpful and skilled to teach surfing beginner. Not only they give good tips for the beginner surfers, but they also took a great concern about the safety. The staffs are very welcoming and friendly. Super recommend for all aged groups, family, friends and couples. Mahalo!!:))
