If you’re ready to learn, the calm waters of Waikiki Beach are a great place to get your feet wet. You can still find real Waikiki Beach Boys showing visitors a great time and giving surfing lessons today. Sign up for a lesson at the seaside booths along Kuhio and Waikiki beaches. Some of these instructors have been teaching surfing and outrigger canoe paddling for generations.
Learning How to Surf on Oahu
You'll find surf schools taught at gentler breaks in town at Ala Moana, the North Shore and various other spots around Oahu. Lessons run between 1-2 hours and are taught by more experienced surfers. Longboards are used to make it even easier for first-timers and a push from your instructor will help you get started. Lessons are highly recommended for your safety and the safety of your fellow beachgoers.
To see the professional surfers in action, take a drive to the North Shore during the winter and watch surfers from around the world ride Hawaii’s most famous big waves. The North Shore’s legendary winter waves attract the best surfers in the world. The Vans Triple Crown of Surfing, considered the Super Bowl of surfing, is held on its shores every year in November and December at Waimea Bay, Haleiwa Beach and Ehukai Beach (Banzai Pipeline).
Watching Big Wave Surfing on Oahu
"The Eddie" is considered the ultimate Hawaii big wave surfing event since it honors legendary Hawaiian waterman Eddie Aikau. Unlike other competitions, “The Eddie” does not have a set date, but rather, a holding period from December through February and occurs on one day only if the waves hit a face height of 40 feet or more. Since its inception in 1984, this invitation-only event has only been held a handful of times. The opening ceremony brings together surfers from around the world in celebration of the aloha spirit of Eddie Aikau, the legendary lifeguard of Waimea Bay and one of the best big wave riders in the world. He was a legend on the North Shore, and the phrase “Eddie would go” refers to how he pulled surfers out of the raging waters when no one else would—or could. Visit Waimea Bay and you’ll find Eddie’s memorial watching over the surfers as he did in life.
Note: Always heed warning signs about dangerous swells and currents, and be mindful of current conditions and your own abilities.
