Itinerary
Your tour begins after you make your way to Haleiwa on the North Shore of Oahu, roughly an hour’s drive from Waikiki. Meet your instructor, grab a board, and begin to practice the basics of popping up and paddling on shore. Instruction is broken down enough that beginners can do it for the very first time, while more experienced surfers can get pro-tips to strengthen their moves.

Once you’re comfortable, gear up in your wetsuit and reef shoes and strap on your leash. In a protected cove, catch gentle waves with your instructor by your side. Many beginners pop up or even catch a wave by the end of the lesson!

When you book, choose among three options:
  • Small-group lesson of three students per instructor; ages 8 and older
  • Lesson of two students per instructor; no age restriction
  • Private family lesson limited to three students per instructor; no age restriction

This lesson takes you to a gentle cove and is conducted with small groups of at most three students per instructor, making it an ideal choice for beginners to catch their first wave. Plus, all equipment is included so you don’t have to find the right gear.

Great instructors, great price, beautiful location!

Carol and her team of instructors are fantastic! They are enthusiastic to share their love for surfing! Our teenage daughter signed up for two days and she is now in love with surfing! I would recommend it to kids, teens and adults!
