To start off your surfing experience, we pick you up at one of our convenient hotel pick-up locations. You’ll be stoked to ride in our air-conditioned, clean, easy-to-spot, orange-and-black "surf school bus." We will then shuttle you to one of Waikiki’s best surfing spots located just outside of the foot traffic.
Once by the ocean, you’ll prepare in the comfort of our Mobile Command Center, a brand-new, luxury, custom, Mercedes Benz Sprinter Van. You’ll watch our safety video and talk about surf conditions. We’ll talk about your previous experience, swimming strength or any other concerns or conditions. We'll discuss what you hope to experience on the water and how our time together fits into your learning curve for surfing. Finally, we gear you up with reef shoes, rash guard shirts and surfboards and we are off to the beach!
When we get to the sand, we conduct our land lesson. We’ll walk through the basics of the surfing experience and then have you practice a few times before you get into the water. If you have mastered the basics or progressed in your surfing, we will instead work on the next step in your training. When you’re comfortable and ready, we leash ourselves to the board and into the water we go!
Our expert surf instructors have over 75 years aggregate experience. We chose coaches who are not only good at surfing but who have a passion for teaching. Our surf guides have spent hundreds of hours learning our instruction method so that you will can continue to learn every time you join us, regardless of instructor or your skill level. We will help you learn the fundamentals or help you to level up some specific aspect of your surfing. Safety is our top concern. All our instructors are CPR certified and most hold blue cards. We always have a minimum of two instructors in the water with one acting as a cameraman. While safety comes first, our team is also totally focused on helping you have an unforgettable experience - one that brings the aloha back to surfing.
After the lesson, retreat to the shade of our on-site tent to relax, hang with our instructors, or enjoy the perspective of watching the waves you have just been riding! When ready to go, we will take you back to our Mobile Command Center, so you can check out your awesome efforts (photographs and videos). You can commemorate your day with some swag for yourself or friends. Finally, we drive you back to your drop-off location.
The two (2) hour group lesson is a great option for the beginner surfer. Students must be at least 13 years of age and older and must be able to swim. Students will be grouped together with a ratio of one (1) instructor for every four (4) students. All instructors in the group lesson work together to maximize safety and fun.
