I love to teach kids how to surf! They are all so excited and have so much fun learning. If they are really young and not so confident, my instructors and I put them on the board with us. This is called tandem surfing. We catch the waves for them and they stand up on the board in front of us. For the older children who want to try surfing on their own, we stay by them the entire lesson and help them catch fun small waves. Each lesson for the kids is taught in a small wave cove with perfect easy beginner waves to learn on. The cove is filled with Hawaiian sea turtles that come up to the children to say hello!
Surf lesson for kids on Oahu focus on ocean safety, getting kids comfortable with being in the water, around surfboard and on waves. In particular with the timid children we spend a lot of the time during the surf lessons for kids simply acclimating them to the surfing experience. Once they have experienced the thrill of riding a few tiny waves on the board with us, they’re pretty much hooked and get super excited to take the next steps of learning to ride a wave by themselves.
For the older children who want to try surfing on their own, we stay by them the entire surf lesson and help them catch fun small waves. Oahu surf lessons or kids can vary greatly based on where the surf lesson takes place. Each lesson we give is customized to their level of comfort and always in the safety of a small wave cove with perfect easy beginner waves to learn on.
An added benefit of Oahu surf lessons for kids at the particular locations we teach at, is that the cove is filled with Hawaiian sea turtles that come up to the children to say hello. The kids always get a kick out of surfing a swimming next to sea turtles!!
