LEARNING TO SURF from a Waikiki Beachboy is a must-do while visiting Waikiki.
Surfing in Waikiki is a unique and fun experience: the waves in Waikiki are gentle rollers that offer a smooth, long wave ride. There are also no vicious undertows or rogue waves in the protected bay.
Waikiki Beach Services offers a variety of surf lessons for all skill levels. All of our Waikiki Beachboys are lifeguard and CPR trained and are also licensed by the State of Hawaii to perform surf lessons in Waikiki.
