There are few better places to learn to surf than the gentle, rolling waves of Waikiki Beach. Learn the basics or refresh your skills in a small-group lesson (four students to one instructor) that’s tailored to your skill level. Relax in shallow water with a soft, sandy bottom on a stable board. These Waikiki Beach surf classes are perfect for anyone looking to gain surfing skills and confidence.
  • Learn to surf on Hawaii’s Waikiki Beach
  • Get personalized surfing instruction in a small-group lesson
  • Hassle-free round-trip transport from select Waikiki hotels
  • Surfboards and rash guards provided
What to Expect
Begin your surfing experience with pickup from select Waikiki hotels. Check in at the surf shop and meet your instructor for an introduction. Get suited up in provided rash guard and choose the right surfboard for you. Next settle in for the dry portion of the class. Learn the basics of balancing on your board while still on land and get comfortable before venturing into the water. The classes are suitable for all ages and all skill levels. Whether you are just starting out or want to build on your experience, small class sizes of no more than four students per instructor guarantee plenty of personalized teaching. Next head to the beach where your instructor gets you set up your board. Then it’s time to dive in, paddle out, and catch some waves. The tour ends with a return to your original pickup location.

We did a surfing lesson with Josh. Great experience, we were two people who had never surfed before. He helped us learn step by step, making sure we were safe during the lesson. We were a bit tired from other activities, and the guide helped us paddle when we couldn't do it

Terrific experience! The teacher's gave great instructions. To my surprise I got up on the board a few times for about 10 seconds!! This was a big deal for me. My daughter went back another day for a private lesson. So much fun!!
