Surf Lessons

Oahu Surfing at its Best

Group Lesson
Private Lesson
Private Charter

Our exclusive surf lesson location is in a secluded bay. This allows you to experience the great waves on Oahu in an environment that is conducive for learning. Other surfing schools or surf lessons in Hawaii are held in the aggressive crowds/lineups of Waikiki or other similar spots on Oahu.

Why surf with us?

There’s no carrying a heavy surfboard for blocks to get to the beach, no crowds arguing over who owns the next wave, and no long paddle to leave you fatigued before you have a chance to catch your first wave! Plus, if anyone in your group just wants to go along for a beautiful boat ride and watch your lesson, they can sign up as a rider or rider/snorkeler.

Whether you’re a seasoned surfer or want to try surfing for the first time, Hawaiian Surf Adventures is here to ensure your Hawaii surfing experience is a great one. We look forward to showing you a unique Hawaiian Surf Adventure that you’ll never forget! We are located 20 minutes East of Waikiki in Koko Marina Center (right across from Hanauma Bay).

What to Know

Lessons are approximately 2 hours long and are held throughout the week; see our live interactive calendar for availability. Minimum age is 8 – anyone younger than 8 requires a private lesson and a parent must be present. Participants under 18 years old can attend lessons, but a guardian must be present prior to the lesson to sign a waiver. We offer US Active Duty Military and Kama’aina discounts.

Each surfer must be able to tread water and keep calm in the water, as life jackets are not used while surfing, and must be able to follow directions in English. Please also note that reef shoes and rash guards are available in limited sizing; if you have your own rash guard and reef shoes you should bring them. Board shorts are NOT provided but are highly encouraged.

Interested in going along for the boat ride to watch friends or family surf? Sign on as an observer for only $45.

Please note that we will take you to the break either via boat or by van to the beach where an instructor will tow you out; based on availability.

Private Surf Coaches

We also offer private SURF COACHES! If you’ve got the basics down, but want to get to the next level of surfing, hire one of our surf coaches for one-on-one lessons! They can take you to different breaks around Oahu (extra charge for transportation may apply) to hone in on more advanced skills – turning, duck-diving, larger sized waves, smaller board techniques, etc; Call us to arrange scheduling – offered 7 days/week at varying times.
