Frequently Asked Questions FAQ

What happens after I buy?

After you buy you’ll receive an order confirmation email and a registration email with next steps.

Can I (the parent) join the surf lesson?

We don’t recommend parents attend surf lessons because it will make children nervous. However, parents may wait on the beach and observe the lesson in progress. We do NOT allow parents to join students in the water or during the land lesson.

How can I know if my child is a good swimmer?

This is a common question. Children do not need to be expert swimmers. A child is a good enough swimmer if they feel confident in water over their head and can tread water for at least 1 minute.

Where will the students 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 parents

How many students will be in the class?

Class size will vary between 1 and 4 students per instructor.
