What to expect
To start off your lesson, we come pick you up! Our knowledgeable staff will meet you at one of our convenient hotel pick-up locations. You’ll be stoked to ride in our air-conditioned and clean, easy-to-spot, orange-and-black "surf school bus." After our friendly staff introduce themselves, we will shuttle you to one of Waikiki’s best bodyboarding spots located just outside of the foot traffic. Once by the ocean, you will meet your instructor and talk about your previous experience, swimming strength or any other concerns or conditions. Finally, we gear you up with reef shoes and rash guard shirts and have you walk your high quality lesson boards to the beach. When you’re comfortable and ready, we leash ourselves to the board and into the water we go! After the lesson, retreat to the shade of our on-site tent to relax, hang with our instructors, or enjoy the perspective of watching the waves you have just been riding! You can check out photographs, videos, the work of our cameraman or buy some swag for yourself or friends. Then after your purchases are made, we drive you back to our convenient drop off locations.

5 star surfing lessons with Nick Morelli
What an awesome experience for my 15 and 17 year old. Nick Morelli was an outstanding surfing instructor and an all around great guy!

Lessons were excellent and both kids were able to successfully surf by the end of the lesson. Both kids are asking to do another lesson and were so thrilled with how successful they were in riding the waves!!

Couldn’t be happier!!

Great lesson
Jenna and the team provided a laid back, well-taught lesson. We assembled the basics to keep heading out and grabbing more waves during our stay.

Sep 2019
All I wanted to do was surf once before I left hawaii because god only knows when I'd get another chance. My "group lesson" which was totally by myself (thanks for saving me $30 guys) was to say the least INCREDIBLE. Did that enthusiasm come through the computer ok for you? I'll try again IIIIINNNNNCCCCCRRRRREEEEEDDDDDIIIIIBBBBBLLLLLEEEEE. Thanks Chelsea for putting up with me, my headache, my laziness and for being such a pleasure to chat with. If you can get me to stand up on a surf board you can do anything!

Teens learn to surf
Jun 2019 • Family
This is a super professional operation. We booked a semi-private lesson for my two teens, ages 13 and 16. Everything went like clockwork, from the first email inquiry I sent to receiving the pictures the day after the lesson. The staff was excellent! Our semi-private lesson happened in tandem with a group lesson, which actually worked really well. My kids had their own instructor, but were also helped by other instructors and enjoyed being part of a very supportive group. The group itself ranged in age from middle school to grandparents. Everyone was able to surf, and everyone came out of the water beaming and cheering each other on. My kids had a such a good time that in the following days we rented boards and they kept surfing on their own. They're hooked! I highly recommend the Ohana Surf Project.

Surf Lesson
Oct 2018 • Solo
THIS was the BEST time ever!! The staff was great. Organized. Laid back. Professional with that friendly feel. No pressure, just sun, sea, and surf. I would definitely recommend the 90 minute lesson. The shuttle picked me up VERY near my hotel, which made it so much easier. I would definitely go back to these guys again for further instruction. There's just not enough good things to say.

Thank you for choosing OSP! We're so glad we were able to get all 4 kids surfing that day, and it was great that all the parents were able to stand on the jetty and watch them all catch waves and have fun. We hope you all jump in the water with us next time. Lots of aloha from their coaches Matt, Troy, Chelsea and the whole crew!
