What Should I Expect at My First Surfing Lesson?
Some first-timers are nervous that they will be immediately sent out onto the water. You will hit the water during your first lesson, but that doesn’t happen until you have been taught the basics of how to handle the board, how to properly stand, and basic surfing safety.

Expect to fall in the water. You will fall. It’s normal, and even the best surfers take a spill. If you expect this to happen then you will be less likely to panic when it does. Just remember what you’ve been taught, and get back on your board when you’re able.

Expect to catch your first wave. Many visitors who participate in this Hawaii Activity catch a wave during their very first lesson. Why sit on the beach and watch others catching waves when you can be part of this exciting Activity on Hawaii?            

What About Intermediate or Advanced Surfing Lessons?
Surfing lessons aren’t just for beginners! If you already know the basics and just want to improve your form and learn how to catch even bigger waves, then a Surf School can help you out. The instructors have years of experience, so they will be able to teach you what you need to know to take your surfing to the next level.

It’s a good idea to reserve your spot at a Surf School in advance, because it’s not uncommon for instructors to be booked, especially during peak times. Most of the schools that offer this Big Island Activity will let you make reservations online or by calling the numbers listed above.
