Activity Tips

Kevin Ditamore – Owner / Manager

Learning to surf is fun and easy – if you are at the right place and have the proper instruction and guidance. Most people think that the hardest part is “standing up on the board.” In reality the hardest part is “catching the wave.” This is where an instructor really comes in handy your first time. Just a little push on the tail end of your board can make a huge difference in helping you catch the wave.

Waikiki is a famous beach, with its signature view of Diamond Head and its short walk to dozens of high rise hotels.  This will be the backdrop to your lessons!  The staff at Ohana Surf Project is friendly and committed to ensuring you have a positive experience. Want to learn to surf? This is your best shot!

Best time of day to learn to surf? It is typical the first thing in the morning is the least windy, and the wind often builds throughout the day. Our suggestion is to do the 9am time slot if you aren’t going to be out late enjoying nightlife the previous evening. 12pm would be our next choice … some days it is pretty windy by 2:30pm and some days the wind starts tailing off by then. The late afternoon sun does make it a pretty time to be out on the water.
