Overview

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.

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.

Loved riding the waves!

Big Wave Dave's is a great local surfing shop with friendly and talented staff. The waves were rocking and all 5 novices of us got up multiple times. They especially took care to make sure we felt comfortable with conditions and safety was a priority!...More
