About Oahu’s Surf Schools:
Surfing is one of the most popular Oahu Things to do, and attending a Surf School is a chance to try this Waikiki Activity for the very first time or for intermediate and advanced surfers to hone their skills. Several surf schools are offered near Ambassador Hotel - A Waikiki Hotel, and many first time surfers are amazed at how easy it is to catch their first wave.
Most Waikiki Surf Schools offer group, semi-private and private lessons. For those who are just starting out, a group lesson is a great choice. If you prefer to have an instructor to yourself for a semi-private or private lesson then there are some advantages. In a group setting, the lesson must progress at a specific pace. With a semi-private or private lesson, however, the instructor can tailor the lesson to suit your skill level.
Intermediate and advanced surfers should book a semi-private or private lesson. Most Surf Schools allow you to bring your own board, but rental boards are also available. Rash guards are typically included in the cost of the lesson, but other gear usually is not.
If you have never even seen a surfboard, you can still be riding a wave by the end of your very first lesson. Some are surprised to know that you don’t even have to know how to swim in order to enjoy this Waikiki Activity. Some spots feature shallow water where you can surf and still stand easily, so just about anyone can enjoy this Oahu Things to Do.
