Surf Lessons

Lesson 4

"E HEʻENALU KĀKOU!" (Let’s Surf!)

Surf lessons in Waikiki are without a doubt one of the most popular activities in Hawaii. One of our missions at Waikiki Beach Services is to introduce everyone to surfing. Learning to surf in Waikiki is a unique and fun experience, and we offer a variety of surf lessons for all skill levels. If you have never been on a surfboard in your life, or even if you have some experience in surfing, our surfing lesson instructors have the skill and experience to work with you to give you the best surf lesson possible.

If you want to learn how to surf, there really is no better place than Waikiki. The waves are normally gentle rollers that offer a smooth, long ride. Also, there are no vicious undertows or rogue waves in this protected bay.
