About
Here at Ohana Surf Project we believe our clients are like family, and we strive to provide the best service to every person who chooses to join us on the water and we welcome their loved ones who come along to support them as well. We are passionate about surfing and specialize in three ways of teaching you how to glide across the water: surf, stand up paddle and bodyboard. All of our staff members have been in the business for many years and are some of the finest instructors in the industry. We love what we do and we enjoy working together, as a team and as ohana to make our students feel safe, comfortable, and successful. Our biggest priority is SAFETY! All our coaches and guides are professional, trained in safety (CPR, lifeguard, first aid), and friendly. We look forward to welcoming you into our ohana and showing you the aloha spirit that has kept each of us here in Hawaii-- enjoying life & good company, resecting the 'aina (our mother earth), having fun and staying active.

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 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.

Phenomenal instructors! Book now!
May 2021 • Family
I cannot say enough good things about our experience! Tim and Mark were patient and wonderful instructors! My 17 yr old was up on her first attempt! My 13 yr old is not athletically inclined and somewhat timid but the instructors were incredibly patient, kind, and nothing but positively encouraging...my son was THRILLED when he was able to do it! The memories will be cherished forever. Don’t hesitate to book with this group! My kids are already wanting to do it again:). Thank you, Tim and Mark!

Jan 2020 • Friends
I highly recommend the group lessons. I’ve surfed a few times and went with a friend who had never surfed. They did a great job adjusting for experience levels and making sure everyone had a fun, safe time. No complaints. It was a great experience!
