To start off your lesson, we come pick you up in our courtesy shuttle!
Our knowledgeable staff will meet you at one of our convenient hotel pick-up locations.

You’ll be stoked to ride in our air-conditioned and clean, easy-to-spot, white shuttle with our logo on the side. After our friendly staff introduce themselves, we will bring you to the Ohana Surf Center where we will show you a safety presentation so you know what to expect once you are in the water and get you geared up with long sleeve rash guard shirts and reef shoes!

Next, we shuttle you to one of Waikiki’s best surfing spots located just outside of the foot traffic.

Once by the ocean, you will meet your instructor and talk about your previous experience, if any, swimming ability, and any other concerns or conditions. We have you walk your high quality lesson boards to the beach.  We then demonstrate on land what you have learned and how to get up on the board. When you’re comfortable and ready, we leash ourselves to the board and into the water we go!


Out in the water, it is time to catch some waves! Our instructors will be there to coach and guide you both before and after each wave so you can improve with each wave.

After the lesson, we’ll shuttle you back to our shop to check out photographs and videos of your lesson or buy some merch for yourself or friends. Once you are ready, we drive you back to our convenient drop off locations.
