About Oahu’s Surf Schools:
Most people have watched a surfing competition either live or on TV and admired the way the surfers seem to be able to catch a huge wave so easily. While the pros might be able to make it look easy, the truth is that it takes some work to learn how to ride the big swells. Attending a surf school is a popular Oahu Thing to Do that can teach you what you need to know to catch your first wave.
Courtyard by Marriott Waikiki Beach is located near several businesses that offer this Waikiki Activity. No prior experience is needed, and lessons are available for most ages.
Surf schools offer lessons for beginners and for more experienced surfers who want to further develop their skills. You can choose from private, semi-private, or group lessons. The advantage of a private or semi-private lesson is that the instructor will be able to tailor the lesson to your skills and your pace.
Did you know that you don’t even need to know how to swim to take your first surf lesson? It’s true! Some of the surf schools hold lessons in shallow water where surfing is possible, but where you can stand anytime you’d like. These shallow water surf lessons are also perfect for families or younger students.
You can bring your own surfboard when enjoying this Waikiki Activity, or rental boards are available. The school will usually have rash guards on hand, but you must plan to bring any other gear. For most students, it doesn’t take long to be ready to start enjoying the popular Waikiki Activity of surfing. You could be catching your first wave after just one lesson.
You’ll find this Oahu Thing to Do being offered both in Oahu and at the North Shore. The North Shore schools are a better option for a more experienced surfer who wants a bigger challenge. Reserve your place in one of Oahu’s Surf Schools during your next stay at our Waikiki Hotel.
