Ohana Surf Project Vision

Welcome to the Ohana Surf Project! We are excited to have you visit us. We have a passion for surfing and believe it can have a transformative impact on people’s lives. At Ohana Surf Project (“OSP”), we believe that not all surf instruction is the same. We tailor our method of instruction to the whole person and the entirety of the experience. Our team values respect for the ocean, our sport, and every single customer. These values drive the vision of the Ohana Surf Project: To improve surfers, the surfing community and the surf industry by reinvigorating the fascination, reinforcing the aloha and reconnecting us all to the essential magic of the waves.

Our Project strives to help non-surfers become surfers and to motivate existing surfers to higher levels all with the joy of the journey.  OSP was founded to make surfing accessible to women and men, young and old. We measure our success by the number of people who find or rediscover the power and beauty of surfing. We will not leave behind those with physical or mental disabilities who dream of riding on the ocean.  We know that whatever levels we achieve in our goals that the Project is a journey, an ongoing quest to improve – in our surfing, our company and our lives.

We view our company as “ohana” and strive to treat everyone with mutual respect and gratitude.  We are not simply employees, but part of a team working together with a common vision and towards common goals. We value our team’s opinions and encourage respectful, creative, and constructive disagreement. We seek new ways to improve the experience for our clients, new ideas to broaden our footprint, and new perspectives that will bring change and improvement to the style, service, and technology of the Ohana Surf Project. We know that teams acting together are exponentially stronger than individuals acting in parallel, and with our camaraderie and collaboration, we will prove that OSP is indeed “more than a surfing lesson…”
