Activity Highlights
Meet your private surfing instructor at a surf shop near Kahalu'u Bay, and begin your 2-hour surf lesson by picking out your surfboard. You’ll also be fitted with reef booties and a rash guard to protect your skin.

Then walk to the beach, where — if you are a beginner — you’ll stay on the sand to learn the basics before entering the water. Following your instructor’s directions, practice the proper techniques for paddling and popping up on your board. Before heading into the ocean, listen carefully to the explanation of surfing etiquette and how to wipe out safely.

When you’re ready, fasten your ankle strap and hop on your board, paddling out from the beach. Your instructor will be with you in the water, telling you when to paddle and when to pop up — and making sure you don’t go anywhere near the bigger waves unless you're more experienced.

If you need it, you’ll be given a little push from the back of your board to help you catch as many waves as you can! If you have experience surfing, your instructor can provide advice on how to read waves, how to turn and how to catch larger waves.

With each lesson tailored to your skill level, it’s a perfect way to hang loose in Hawaii!

  • I purchased this lesson for my son, and this was the highlight of his trip. Susie, his instructor, was wonderful and took her time teaching him. My son was up and surfing in no time!
