Learn to surf in Hawaii!

If you are coming to Oahu to learn to surf, you are in the right place. There are plenty of surf schools and surfing instructors here to teach you how. There are also several breaks that are perfect for beginners with easy rolling swells that are small.

Starting out on a longboard, and taking a lesson is a absolute best way to go if you have never done it before.

These are just a few of the best beginner breaks:

Waikiki Beach- One of the most forgiving places to learn. Lots of people, and canoes in the water make it a bit crowded at times. Plenty of surfing instructors and longboards on the beach to help get you going.

Chuns Reef: Famous North Shore break that is well known for it's gentle, tapering walls, and high percentage of beginer surfers in the water.

Puena Point - Puena point on the North shore is another great place for beginners to learn how to surf. Gently rolling swells that peter out in a beautiful bay at inside Puena Point make this place perfect. There does need to be a decent size swell on the North Shore, because Puena Point is always about 1/2 the size of anywhere else. There are actually several surf schools who have classes here.

Cockroach Bay - On the East side just past Sandy Beach. Another perfect learning spot, slow, rolling swells that aren't too big. Perfect for longboarding and learning.

Inside Haleiwa - Who hasn't seen the videos of parents pushing 50 lb keikis into the tiny rolling shorebreak? Please note: this is the area where the waves roll for the last 30-50 feet or so onto shore. I am NOT referring to the outside break.


John Severson: "In this crowded world the surfer can still seek and find the perfect day, the perfect wave, and be alone with the surf and his thoughts."
