Board Rentals



We don’t rent anything to our customers that we wouldn’t use ourselves!


We believe that you shouldn’t have to spend an arm and a leg to enjoy your time on the beach, so we price our rentals at an affordable rate.


Our job is not only to provide you with great Waikiki beach rentals and sales, but also to educate you on our products.

ere at Ohana Surf Project we believe our clients are like family, and we strive to provide the best service to every single person who chooses to join us on the water and we welcome their loved ones who come along to support them as well. We are passionate about surfing and specialize in three ways of teaching you how to glide across the water: surf, stand up paddle and bodyboard. We have professionals in all of these activities on staff and are therefore able to teach anywhere from beginner to advanced levels. All of our staff members have been in the business for many years and are some of the finest instructors in the industry. We each bring a little something unique to the table but we believe in delivering a consistent product. We love what we do and we enjoy working together, as a team and as ohana to make our students feel safe, comfortable, and successful!
If you’ve ever dreamed of riding a wave or gliding across the water we can certainly help you. If you have ever felt that you wouldn’t be able to do so, we’d love the opportunity to prove you wrong and show you that anyone with a little desire to experience the thrill of surfing can do it!  
We offer group lessons for teens and up, private lessons and private group lessons for all ages, family packages for families with young children (under 13), and our lessons with a pro if you’re looking to take your skills or level of understanding to the next level. We offer both 1 & 2 hour lessons and our pro lessons are available in 90 minutes and 2.5 hours classes.  
Our biggest priority is SAFETY! First and foremost we make sure our students are safe, and having fun and feeling successful is a close second. All our coaches and guides are professional, trained in safety (CPR, lifeguard, first aid), and friendly.
We look forward to welcoming you into our ohana and showing you the aloha spirit that has kept each of us here in Hawaii– enjoying life & good company, respecting the ‘aina (our mother earth), laughing, having fun and staying active.


We offer complimentary pick-up in our Surf School Bus™ vehicles from Waikiki!
