An invigorating 1.5-hour surfing lesson taught by native Hawaiian lifeguards. This instruction is for ages 11-years and up only. Instruction will be held in small Groups of 1-3 people per Lifeguard. On calm or flat water days, SUP equipment will be set.


Ditch the traditional way of learning how to surf and let the Hawaiian lifeguards give you a hands-on approach to riding the waves like a pro.

You will begin your surf experience with a 30-minute surf lesson in the classroom. You will learn surf etiquette, paddle techniques and be given lessons. Once you are armed with a wealth of surf knowledge you will receive all the rental equipment needed to stay afloat. Each student will receive a rash guard, water shoes, board and leash.

After you have learned safety and surfing fundamentals, you can travel to the Kahalu’u Beach Park to tackle the clear blue waters of Hawaii. The Beach Park is located about 3-Miles South of the office. The friendly stationed lifeguards will be awaiting your arrival and will have all your equipment ready for you.

You will start your water instruction with a lifeguard right by your side, every step of the way. They will even teach you about the fascinating Hawaiian culture. After 1 hour of surfing time with your private lifeguard, they will have you feeling like Ohana (family).

If in the event mother nature is not prividing us with adequate waves and wateres are calm- HLSI will provide you with Stand Up Paddle surfing equipment to enjoy the flat water and the smaller waves.

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Gig Harbor, United States on April 23rd, 2012 Hawaiian Lifeguard Surf Instructors (HLSI) was great! The instructors were friendly and attentive, from the initial orientation provided by Tifani to the actual surf lesson provided by Kelii. Another HLSI instructor, John, was at the surf location taking pictures of the surfing. So don't worry if you forget your camera, or you are in the water, they got you covered. Make sure to ask if someone will be there for your lesson, I didn't ask about photos, so I was pleasantly surprised. We actually booked for another lesson later in the week, however, they called us to let us know that it was "lake conditions" (ie no waves), so they weren't going to have lessons. We scheduled for the day after that, but lake conditions were still in effect....great for snorkeling bad for surfing. We were very pleased that they called us before our lessons so we didn't waste a trip down to the surf site. Like the summary states: I'd do it again!
