A surfing lesson adds a great workout and a lot of fun to your Oahu vacation. Learn the art of how to hang 10 with a lesson from a qualified instructor at Ala Moana Beach, just minutes from Waikiki. After some practice, get up on the board and catch some waves. Choose either a private or small-group surfing lesson that starts in early or midmorning, depending on your preference.
After pickup from your hotel in Waikiki, take a short drive to Ala Moana Beach located just minutes away. Meet your surfing instructor, and get equipped with a surfboard and other gear for your lesson.
You get the choice of a morning or afternoon start time for a private or small-group lesson (limited to four people).Start on the sand to get familiar with your gear. Whether you're a first-timer or someone looking to freshen up on your skills, you'll warm up with the basics: how paddle out and pop up on your board. Learn proper techniques as you practice on land, and hear some of the history of surfing in Hawaii. After getting comfortable with your dry run, grab your board and dip into the warm ocean water. Your instructor goes in with you to coach on paddling and when to get up on your board. After your surfing lesson, your minivan returns you to your Waikiki hotel at the end of your tour.
