Frequently Asked Questions FAQ

What happens after I buy?

After you buy you’ll receive an order confirmation email and we’ll ask you where to pick you up and drop you off.

Can I (the parent) join the surf lesson?

Absolutely! Parents can ride along for free on every kid surf lesson. The ride along includes riding in the van and watching the lesson from the beach. If you (the parent) want to learn to surf, we’d love to have you! Just be sure to also pay your lesson.

How can I know if I'm a good swimmer?

This is a common question. Students do not need to be expert swimmers — but every student must be able to swim. You are a good enough swimmer if you feel confident in water over your head and can tread water for at least 1 minute.

Where will we be surfing?

Students will mostly be surfing in Waikiki. Occasionally conditions will warrant having the lesson at other south shore locations.

What if the weather/conditions are bad for surfing?

On days when there is no surf or bad conditions we will cancel lessons and notify customers. If we can predict poor conditions in the future, we will notify you sooner to reschedule.

How many students will be in the class?

All surf lessons are private lessons. You or your group will be the only people on your lesson.
