We are one of Honolulu’s top surf schools, founded by former professional surfer Hans Hedemann, and the perfect option to take surfing lessons when you visit Waikiki Beach.

As a family-owned business with over 25 years of experience, we offer surf lessons that are guaranteed to have you riding waves while staying safe.

We were awarded a certificate of excellence from Trip Advisor in 2019 and strive to maintain a premium service for you and your family year round.

Whether you are a beginner surfer or have some surfing experience, we’ll take care of you and make sure your surf lessons are up to what you need. If you have taken surfing lessons before, our instructor will evaluate your skill level and teach you accordingly.

  • You’re guaranteed to be surfing within a two-hour lesson
  • Equipment included in all of our lessons
  • Take the memory with you so you can watch yourself surfing at Waikiki with photos and videos from your lesson in HD for $75.
  • Our experienced surf instructors are trained to teach kids of all ages.
  • Waikiki Beach offers turquoise ocean waters with clear sand and warm waves
  • No wetsuit needed
  • One of the most popular surf hotspots to learn how to surf
  • We take care of analyzing the ocean conditions to ensure your safety and make you feel comfortable.
  • Since we are a surf school founded by a former professional surfer you can also sign up to get surf lessons with a professional surf instructor.
  • Kids, ages 5 and more are welcomed

Our typical surf lesson is 2 hours long and consists of a technique slide show, a safety briefing, a land lesson, and time spent in the water.

If you’re visiting the tropical waters of Waikiki, surfing is a must. Our experienced surfer instructors will make sure you get as many waves as possible by pushing the back of your surfboard, giving you a burst of momentum.

After we push you into the wave you’ll hear us yell excitedly “stand up!” You’ll then use the technique we taught you on land to stand up on your board. And just like that, you’re surfing! Smile as our cameraman and drone pilot capture your rides perfectly.

Some of our students can stand up right away and others take a little longer. Either way, we guarantee you’ll be surfing by the end of the first surf lessons, especially because you’ll be doing it with friends.


The perfect option for beginning your surfing career. Participants must be at least 14 years old and if you want to join a group lesson but are visiting on your own we’ll incorporate you to one. Perfect if you want to learn with friends.


Three people will be getting surf lessons with this option. No matter the skill level of any participant, your surf lesson will be adjusted to accommodate everyone and make sure instruction is provided accordingly.


A private lesson is the best option if you want more one-on-one time with the instructor. Private lessons are best for children between 5 and 14 years old, intermediate surfers that want to step it up, or even beginner surfers that require extra instruction.
