While visiting, cross ‘learning how to surf’ off your to-do list! Learn surf techniques, safety rules and surf-break etiquette under the guidance of certified lifeguards and surf instructors.

A bit easier than surfing, it’s still a great way to enjoy the beach while you’re on Oahu.

Fantastic! I was a bit nervous for my 4 kids but didn’t need to be. The staff were excellent, positive and encouraging. They did a great job and helped my kids feel comfortable and have a great experience. Beautiful spot; good waves. Totally recommend.

We did private surfing lessons at Kapolei with SurfHNL. We are first time surfers. The instructors were patient and pleasant and helped both of our sons get up several times. They actually spent more time with our sons than we had paid for, making sure they each had a great experience. SurfHNL was clear in its communications to us regarding time and location. We’d book with them again anytime!

Easy access but nearly private beach. Nice waves for beginners and not intimidating. The instructors were very personable.
