This lesson for our kids (12 and 6) was a total success!!! They have had few ocean adventures. The Ohana Surf group is exceptionally well organized and managed. The instructors are top notch, and we were so pleased with the precautions they took to keep our youngest one safe. The kids had a GREAT time. We could not have asked for a better first surfing experience.

When I first booked the lesson, I was planning to take a one hour session. my instructor Alana attended to my care. The way the entire staff worked with me (a guy with learning disabilities), they were empathetic, compassionate, patient, through, and accommodating. I really appreciate how they showed me different techniques to maintain balance on the board. Their professionalism encouraged me to take the two hour session on the same day. On my second session, Kevin gave some analogies that allowed me to visualize the steps needed in order to ride the wave. I’m forever grateful for this experience.

Amazing Instructors

The last time I surfed was 20 years ago in Costa Rica. The Instructors knew how to work with the muscle memory I had to get me up on the board and stay up longer. You do need to be a good swimmer for this. But I do highly recommend it. Also, don't skip arm day leading up to your vacation. Paddling out is harder than it looks. I did get seasick from being on the board bobbing in the waves, including blacking out. The team was fantastic taking care of me but also working with their other clients. My husband was doing so good with them! If you do have vertigo problems, take some Dramamine before you surf and take it easy. Props to them for getting me out of the water before it got bad and telling me it was OK to not muscle through. Will give them a call next time I'm in the area.

Never to late to learn (Surfings the source)
Casey_K

I have never surfed before and I was so nervous. My two instructors “K” and I believe Taylor was the other one whom also filmed. K showed me on land how to stand up properly and than how to sit down. They also showed how to land in the water in case of a wipeout to prevent from hitting rock or reef. I have no balance or flexibility at all and when it felt like surfing was not for me both my instructor kept on helping no matter what, they never gave up on me and said it takes time and you have to want it and just be patient. After words of wisdom and great instruction I was finally able to stand properly and ride my first wave, and I assure there is no feeling I have experienced on earth. I was able to do it more times and it felt life changing. None of this would have been possible without these instructors. Great for beginners.

Chelsea was very encouraging which helped build confidence for first time surfers. I was able to ride half of the waves I caught which is about what they said to expect! I’d recommend that my instructor call out louder when I should pop-up on the surf board to help with timing. Overall, I felt safe despite the shallow reef.

All coaches are so friendly, funny and good at teaching. My sons all fall in love with surfing right after the class. My husband and I are not good swimmers but we also had good time and even suffered a few times. It is safe and fun! Highly recommended. Can’t wait to see the photos Kevin took for us.

I had a fantastic experience with Ohana Surf Project. Everyone involved was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. This was only my second or third time surfing and first time in over a decade but I felt at ease with the OSP crew. Highly recommend.
