Make your way to Haleiwa on Oahu's North Shore, about an hour's drive from Waikiki. 

Meet your licensed instructor to start your lesson at Haleiwa Beach Park, beginning with the basics on dry land. Learn how to paddle and how to stand up and catch a wave. A variety of small group lesson options ensure you get personalized attention.

We enjoyed this experience and are glad we gave it a try. Our guide was very knowledgeable about surfing and did an excellent job helping us get comfortable on the board. She gave us many opportunities to try and stand up on the board and helped us get back into formation to catch the waves. Part of the fun was watching the other surfers on the water who were amazing. We recommend this tour to anyone who wants to learn how to surf and experience it at the North Shore!

Would give this 10 Stars!!!! It was the best day ever!!! Our teacher Alexis was excellent! We were both able to stand and surf the waves immediately! Great remote location on the North Shore where they hold the lesson and easy to find. They were very friendly and gave us pointers to get better. It was for sure the highlight of our trip!

The instructors were very patient and helpful. An excellent activity for a first time surfer. The place was a little hard to find if you utilize the address directions on your navigation app. An excellent adventure
