Ko'Olina Surf Lessons

Location: West Oahu, Oahu

Immerse yourself in the Hawaiian lifestyle by learning one of the most exciting sports around with our surf lessons in West Oahu! The art of surfing is known as “He’e Nalu,” which means “wave sliding.” For Hawaiians, surfing is a central part of our culture, and we would like to share it with you!

What to expect

Learn how to surf in ideal conditions—where the waves are warm and inviting and there’s never a crowd! Kalaeloa Beach Park is a secret gem on the west side of Oahu, close to the Aulani Disney Resort in Ko'Olina. Round trip transportation not included in lesson price.

Group Lesson

Our most popular option for beginners to intermediate surfers, this group surf lesson in Kapolei delivers high-quality surf instruction at an incredible value. Your class never has more than four students for each instructor, so you’re sure to get plenty of personalized attention. We start with a 30-minute land demonstration and the rest of the time surfing in the ocean. Participants must be at least 13 years old or at least 100 lbs. in weight.

PLEASE NOTE: Group participants are required to paddle their own surfboards back to their instructor with little or no assistance. Men over 230 lbs./women over 200 lbs. or those requiring a life jacket should book a Private Lesson for safety reasons.

One-Hour Private Surf Lesson

The private one-on-one lesson is specially designed for your precious keikis—or kids—between 3 and 13 years old. Having the undivided attention of our experienced surf instructor is guaranteed to be the safest and most effective way for young keiki to surf real Hawaiian waves.

We’ll start with a land demonstration and move the lesson to the ocean. Depending on your child’s weight and ability, we’ll have the keiki surfer go tandem surfing or surfing alongside the instructor. No matter what, the instructor will be with your child every step of the way.

Exclusive Adult Lesson

This is a great option for our lovely couples or groups of two. Our 2:1 student to instructor ratio makes this a great option for siblings, honeymooners, couples, or best friends wanting to share the experience in a setting more private than our traditional group lesson.
