Oahu Surf Lessons
Each of our surf lessons operate with its unique focus, however our beginner surfing lessons emphasize safety and the basic surfing fundamentals. The fundamentals are taught by a number system creating “muscle memory” skills in paddling and standing as essential to successful surfing.
Beginning Surf Lessons on Oahu
Our Beginning Surf Lessons school is targeted towards entry level or beginner surfers and we offer packages to teach up to 3 people per class. Small group surf lessons ensure each person receives the attention they deserve and will learn to surf faster and ultimately have the most fun.
This is a 2 hour surf lesson. We begin our surf lessons on the beach and learn important ocean safety as well as surfing etiquette. Subsequently we will familiarize you with your surfboard, paddling technique the strategy. Then we then hit the water at a beautiful small wave cove perfect for learning to surf. We will be in the water with you guiding you on to waves. We will help you catch waves as well as learn the correct positioning on the board once you are up and riding.
We supply all surfboards, but you will need to bring a light wetsuit or rash guard to surf in.
Our goal is to teach you the foundation of surfing. With good technique you will improve faster and have a lot of fun in the beautiful warm Hawaiian waters. The average adult takes two to four 3-hour classes and independent practice before moving up to the next class.
Intermediate Surf Lessons on Oahu
Intro to the North Shore! Begin surfing some of the easier intermediate surf spots, “duck diving” and develop fluid turning skills. These intermediate surf lesson classes focus on control in slightly more challenging waves and mastering the movements necessary to initiate pumping and complete turns. In our intermediate surfing classes we also examine the external variables that affect an intermediate surfer in their quest for speed, control and maneuverability. Work on adapting your bottom turn to the more varying waves and conditions encountered at the faster breaking wave surf spots.
The average adult takes four to eight 3-hour classes and independent practice before moving up to the next class.
