What To Expect During Your Lesson

Private Beginner Surf Lesson

Beginner surfers will learn to surf in an atmosphere of fun and understanding through the promotion of proper surfing form, technique, and etiquette. They will learn about water safety, ocean awareness, and wave conditions. You will catch your first waves as a surfer in warm Hawaiian waters.

Typical Private Surf Lesson Plan

The first 20 minutes you and the instructor will spend together on land. You will:

  • Watch the ocean and the waves together and talk about ocean safety.
  • Get instruction on how to paddle and position yourself on the board.
  • Learn how to read the waves. 

Remaining Time

Time to get wet! You will paddle out to where the waves are breaking. Your instructor will be by your side to help you and guide you the whole time.

  • You will get out in the ocean and learn to stand up.
  • You will work on correct wave etiquette, style, and technique.
  • Your instructor will talk with you about the world of surfing, some basic rules of surfing, and answer questions.
  • After that, you will use our board and practice on your own.

Private Intermediate / Advanced Surf Lesson

For more advanced students, the surf instructor will choose the surf spot with the best conditions for your skill level, then tell you all about the particular aspects of that break. Once you paddle out together, he will help you improve your wave judgment and surfing techniques by observing, giving you pointers and tips on new maneuvers.
