About your host

Aloha, I've been teaching surfing on Waikiki Beach for over 20 years. I'm blue-card certified by The Dept. of Land & Natural Resources / State of Hawaii, and Red Cross Lifeguard Certified for First-Aid & CPR. I'm fortunate with the opportunity to have learned from original Waikiki Beachboys on the beach since the 1960's. I was trained from some of the best! Prior to only offering surf lessons, I…

What we’ll do

We'll meet at a scheduled time in the center of Waikiki in Duke's Marketplace. This is where we'll practice techniques on a surfboard prior to paddling out into the waves. We'll also go over safety instructions, keeping you and others safe. After the land demonstration, it's only a 5 minute walk to the beach with the boards. I have lockers to keep your things while we're surfing. Once we get to…

What else you should know

Must be able to swim back to your surfboard! Arrangements can be made at a time with comfortable conditions according to your ability. Please book in the beginning of your trip in case conditions aren't favorable due to lack of waves or if it's too windy.

What I’ll provide

Sports equipment and Outdoor gear
Includes a longboard / surfboard. Rashguards are available and optional, I use one to protect from the sun. Only certain boards require them to prevent a rash. Free lockers available for your valuables.

What to bring

Beach towel
swimwear: boardshorts, bikini, or a one-piece

Where you'll be

We'll meet in Duke's Marketplace, one of the last open-air markets in Waikiki tucked away in the middle of the block (Map Pacific Soul Surfing). We'll be surfing surrounded with iconic landmarks like the Royal Hawaiian Hotel, Diamond Head, and the Moana Surfrider Hotel. While Waikiki Beach is no secret, the view from the waves is only experienced by a few who visit Hawaii. I highly recommend to seek a view from the ocean any chance you get.
