Make your way to your chosen location at your lesson time. This surf school was founded by legend Hans Hedermann and has been teaching surfing for years. These 2-hour lessons are available on both the North Shore and Waikiki, at 9am, 12pm, and 3pm. You'll meet your professional instructor and your small group of 4 people or fewer of a similar skill level, then get sized up for a surf board and reef shoes (optional).
Get a basic safety overview and participate in a discussion of surfing etiquette, then practice on your board for about 20 minutes before you head out to the surf break. Learn paddling technique, how to turn, stand up, and how to maneuver around the waves. Your instructor will be nearby the whole time, making sure you get plenty of guidance and feel comfortable.
After 2 hours, cruise back to shore.

We had an excellent instructor Duke...

We had an excellent instructor Duke and there were 2 instructors between 5 people. Watched a brief video about the rules and then straight to the beach. Instructor was very patient and gave loads of encouragement. You will end up standing by the end and will ache the next day!
