1 Hour Private Surfing Lesson in Honolulu
This private one-on-one surfing lesson is specially designed for your precious keikis (kids) between 3 and 11 years old but adults are welcome too! Having the undivided attention of an experienced surf instructor is guaranteed to be the safest and most effective way for you or your young keiki to surf real Hawaiian waves.
You'll start with a land demonstration at Ala Moana Beach Park and then move the lesson into the ocean. Depending on a child's weight and ability, instructors will go tandem surfing with the keiki or surfing alongside the youngster. No matter which option is determined best for your child, the instructor is with the child every step of the way as they learn how to surf on Oahu.
For adults (ages 13+), there also is a Group (non-private) Lesson. For that option, please order: 1 Hour Group Surfing Lesson in Honolulu

SURFING IS AN EXTREME SPORT!
Please read this section before booking your surf lesson.
By booking this surf lesson, you do hereby affirm and acknowledge that you will be fully informed of the inherent hazards and risks associated with surfing and understand that injuries, shark attacks and drowning may occur during participation. You understand that there are inherent risks involved in the sport of surfing, that injuries are a normal and ordinary occurrence, and fully recognize such hazards and understand the nature and existence of inherent risks. Your lesson provider and its sales agents do not accept liability or responsibility for accidental death or personal injuries caused for any participants, except that the lesson provider may be liable in the case of proven negligence by its employees.
You also understand that surfer’s paralysis (myelopathy) is a non-traumatic spine injury. It usually affects beginning surfers who arch their back too often or too long paddling on their board. The constant arching reduces blood flow to the spine. It occurs due to mild weakness, sensory problems and back pain. Some surfers afflicted with this condition recover completely, some never do, some only do partially. It depends on the severity of the injury and each individual person. Your are hereby warned to stop immediately and head back to the beach if you are feeling the slightest back pain. Include many breaks during your first surfing lessons. Some signs and symptoms include: Back pain, a tingling sensation in the legs, loss of feeling in legs, inability to walk, paralysis and urinary retention.
