Aloha and thank you for checking out our World Surf League Lesson.

Our lessons are an hour and half and can be scheduled at various times throughout the day depending on prior scheduling, wind and tides. Please contact us prior to scheduling to ensure everything will work as you would like.

For the beginner surfer, we'll start with a brief land lesson to cover the fundamentals of getting into the ocean, where to position yourself on your board, paddling technique and how to get through the waves, as well as how to turn your board, catch a wave and most importantly stand up and surf!

For those that already have some experience we'll talk about your surfing goals before heading into the lineup to cover the fundamentals of weight transfer, turning, cutbacks and floaters.

We had zero surfing experience, and so new to surfing. Thomas is a great teacher! He walked us through every single fundamental of being a good surfer; how to get in the ocean , hop on the board, and ride the wave! He is an amazing surfer himself, who knows the mother ocean! I would come back and take more lessons from him! If you are a beginner or want to learn how to surf, I recommend Thomas and his crews! We had a whale of time being in the ocean!!

My sister and I took a private lesson and had an absolute blast! We had a fun time with the employees and truly felt like we learned how to surf. We had fun laughing and we were definitely tired afterwards from paddling and working hard learning to surf. They gave us really great feedback in a kind way. We loved being out in the ocean with them. Zack (the surfer we were with most of the time) is CPR and EMT certified. They have lots of experience and are good with little kids too. Thanks for a great experience! We had a blast!

My girls ages 22 and 24 had never surfy before. Within short time they were on the board riding the waves. Their instructor was a seasoned and communicated well the skills necessary for surfing. When I asked my girls if they could have done it without him, they said absolutely not. They are looking forward to do it again.
