Are you a surfing beginner looking for affordable surf lessons in Hawaii?
On top of a sunset cruise, snorkeling, kayaking and canoeing, luau dinners, parasailing, helicopter ride, ATV adventures, swimming, and ziplining, riding waves is an all-time favorite of tourists and locals alike. Most of the time, you will also see many people relaxing, simply watching pro-surfers display their surfing tricks. Also known as “The Gathering Place” because it is where tourists usually gather, Oahu offers a variety of wave breaks for every level – from Waikiki Beach to Banzai Pipeline. Whether you are a novice, intermediate, or a pro, there is always an ideal spot for you on the island.
Located 20 minutes east of Waikiki in the Koko Marina Center across Hanauma bay, Hawaiian Surf Adventure ensures that you will have a remarkable surfing experience. Before checking in, it’s best to bring your own rash guard and reef shoes if you have them since they are available but in limited sizing. Good news for the US active duty military because they are offering discounts, as well as Kama’aina discounts. They provide both private lessons and group lessons. If you have small kids who are younger than 8 years old, it is recommended that they have a private lesson. With their certified and professional coaches with extensive First Aid training, you don’t have to worry about safety because it has always been their priority. All you need to do is sign a waiver and watch your children enjoy this fun water sport.
Are you an advanced surfer who wants to hone your skills further? You can hire one of their best coaches for one-on-one lessons, and they can take you to different breaks the island offers. You will be learning about turning, large-sized waves, duck-diving, smaller board techniques, and other surfing strategies only master surfers know.
