Learn to ride a wave in Oahu away from the Waikiki crowds! This private surf lesson takes place in the waves of Maunalua Bay, about 25 minutes away from the jam-packed beaches of Waikiki. The 2-hour lesson begins on land, and you are then transferred out to the surf, either by boat or by car. Spend the next hour with your personal instructor as you pop up and ride the waves, and even experienced surfers will learn some helpful new techniques.
With departure times throughout the day, it's easy to meet your surf instructor at the shop in Hawaii Kai, and get "sized up" for your surfboard and gear before heading out to the waves. When your group is ready, your instructor will give you a short lesson on how to pop up on the surf board, and you'll then be taken out to the surf break for the ocean portion of the lesson. Hop in the van for the short drive to the beach, where the instructor can help you out to the break or shuttle you out by boat. Once in the water, your instructor will coach and guide you in learning or refining your surfing skills. The water portion of the lesson will be roughly 60 -75 minutes, and at the end of your lesson, you'll be transported back to the shop to view some photos from out in the waves.Please note: You must be able to swim in order to take this class.
