Here at Ohana Surf Project we believe our clients are like family, and we strive to provide the best service to every single 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. We have professionals in all of these activities on staff and are therefore able to teach anywhere from beginner to advanced levels. All of our staff members have been in the business for many years and are some of the finest instructors in the industry. We each bring a little something unique to the table but we believe in delivering a consistent product. 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. If you've ever dreamed of riding a wave or gliding across the water we can certainly help you... if you've ever felt that you wouldn't be able to do so, we'd love the opportunity to prove you wrong and show you that anyone was a little desire to experience the thrill of surfing can do it!Put Ohana Surf Project into our Honolulu trip planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Honolulu.
We offer group lessons for teens and up, private lessons and private group lessons for all ages, family packages for families with young children (under 13), and our lessons with a pro if you're looking to take your skills or level of understanding to the next level. We offer both 1 & 2 hour lessons and our pro lessons are available in 90 minutes and 2.5 hours classes.
We mainly teach on the outskirts of Waikiki in an uncrowded area that often has waves for all levels, but conditions pending we move around to the best spot for the student. We tailor our lessons to the individual.
Our biggest priority is SAFETY! First and foremost we make sure our students are safe, and having fun and feeling successful is a close second. 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), laughing, having fun and staying active.

Ohana Surf Project Reviews
Our instructor was fabulous and very positive. I had my 12 year old and 10 year old with me - none of us had ever surfed. We were all able to get up! The views from the water of Waikiki and Diamond..... more »
By far the best place to get surf lessons in Honolulu...they will get you standing up on a board in your lesson time. They are experienced and put safety above all else...look for yellow school bus... more »
What a GREAT kick a$$ experience! I would like to thank Matt and the entire staff for helping me check off a bucket list item. I would highly recommend Ohana Surf Project to anyone no matter what their skill level or age is. I’m 53 and they even got me up on a board! Better than that, they teach about waves, water, and respect the environment that they are in. Surfing right under Diamond Head...well... what else does anyone need. Spectacular! Do yourself and your soul a favor, just do it! Mahalo!!!
My girlfriend and I took a surfing lesson. The staff was awesome! They were really encouraging and friendly.
