Private Surfing and Stand Up Paddle Lessons

Location: Waikiki

Choose a Private Lesson and get the advantage of a private coach so you can learn fast and have fun! Our one-on-one surf and SUP sessions are customized to your individual skill level.

Or if you want a lesson with just friends or family choose Semi-Private and jump into some fun in a group surf session — meant for just two to three people. This custom experience is perfectly suited to your group’s abilities. You must book at least 2 Surfers for this lesson. We do not group together people from different parties.

Either way, all of our surfing and SUP lessons are private with just you, or you and your friends/family and the instructor. We do not mix groups of strangers.

All surfing and SUP lessons start on the sand with ocean awareness and safety. Then we get you right into the surf for a rush of wind and waves. Once in the water, we show you how to read the waves, position your take off, and the etiquette of wave riding.

  • Younger than 13 must book a Private Surf and SUP Lesson


We are a mobile company – bookings must be made in advance by phone or online. After booking, all the information on where to meet, what to bring, etc will be sent via email.

Most lessons will be held at “Pops” in Waikiki. It is a long rolling break, perfect for beginners and away from the crowds. Depending on your hotel, we will set up a meeting place easiest for you.
