It’s the 3rd time we take lessons with Ohana Surf Project. They’re simply the best! You’ll see it for yourself when you’re out in the water, getting up and surfing and having the best time ever. Meanwhile the other surf schools don’t come even close to the level of instruction and attention we had in the water. We’ll always come back when in Hawaii!

I took a private lesson with Keola and it was an incredible experience! He was attentive, patient, so friendly and even got me up on the very first wave (and many many after- I slept like a baby that night!) The entire team all around was just dynamite. Chelsea immediately makes you feel like family. They all care about your experience and safety and make it the most memorable experience! So grateful I did it, hope to come back again!

About This Deal


To start off your lesson, we come pick you up! Our knowledgeable staff will meet you at one of our convenient hotel pick-up locations. You’ll be stoked to ride in our air-conditioned and clean, easy-to-spot, orange-and-black "surf school bus." After our friendly staff introduce themselves, we will shuttle you to one of Waikiki’s best bodyboarding spots located just outside of the foot traffic.

Once by the ocean, you will meet your instructor and talk about your previous experience, swimming strength or any other concerns or conditions. Finally, we gear you up with reef shoes and rash guard shirts and have you walk your high quality lesson boards to the beach. When you’re comfortable and ready, we leash ourselves to the board and into the water we go!

After the lesson, retreat to the shade of our on-site tent to relax, hang with our instructors, or enjoy the perspective of watching the waves you have just been riding! You can check out photographs, videos, the work of our cameraman or buy some swag for yourself or friends. Then after your purchases are made, we drive you back to our convenient drop off locations.
