Learn how to surf in a fun, supportive environment, where the water is warm, and you have plenty of space to try out your new moves.
We offer lessons for both beginner and advanced surfers. And you can choose from semi-private, exclusive groups, or family lessons. We even offer professional coaching for the advanced surfer. Our goal is to help you enjoy the sport of surfing, whether you’re just starting out or looking to take your skills to the next level.
Our beginner lessons will teach you the basic elements of the sport, including surfing etiquette, water safety, body positioning, board handling, and paddling. You’ll also learn how to get up on your feet and ride the waves. By the end of the lesson, you’ll be able to paddle out and catch some waves on your own.
For our advanced students, we offer a more refined instruction that matches your riding style. We’ll help you correct any bad habits, identify strengths and weaknesses in your technique, and develop competitive strategies. We can also show you how to surf bigger waves safely. No matter what your goals are, we can help you achieve them.

We pick up from 4 locations in Waikiki (the Ilikai Hotel, the Ambassador Hotel, Don Ho Lane Van Depot, Hyatt Regency Hotel). The locations are within a few blocks of most hotels in Waikiki. If there is a special need and a request is made to be picked up directly from your hotel or another location within Waikiki, it may be possible to do so with at least 24 hours advance notice.
Customers will receive a full refund with 48 hours’ notice of cancellation during our high traffic seasons* and/or when we specify, and we offer 24 hours’ notice of cancellation during the rest of the year. Large group bookings may be informed of a 72 hour cancellation policy. You must contact us by phone to cancel or inquire about rescheduling. No-shows and decreases in the number of students will be charged the full price.

Rescheduled lessons are no longer eligible for refunds once rescheduled. Lessons may only be rescheduled once.
Our lessons can be customized to your skill level and to the degree of wave difficulty you desire in regard to size and power. From the North Shore to Waikiki, O’ahu has virtually every type of wave and surfing condition imaginable. All prices include surfboards and all the equipment you need to get up and ride. All you have to bring is your swim suit or board shorts, towel, sunscreen and change of clothes. So come join us for an unforgettable surfing experience!
Once considered the sport of kings, surfing has developed a culture of its own over hundreds of years. Our lessons are designed to not only teach you the basics of surfing, but also to give you a deeper understanding and appreciation for the sport. Most importantly, all students will receive instruction that acknowledges the mental, emotional, and spiritual elements that make surfing such a unique and beautiful sport. You’ll learn how to connect with the ocean environment, understand the lineup and the actions of surfers around you, and surf to express your personality.
We love capturing your progress during the lesson on camera! Our water photographer is also an instructor and provides an added service of helping the other instructors coach. We have photo packages available for purchase before and after the lesson. You will save money on these packages by purchasing your photos either in advance or on the day of your lesson. We take footage of all of our students whether they prepay for the footage or not. We do not share your photos with other parties. Additionally, we often have someone catching some of the action with a camera from the shore.
