Family Surfing on Oahu’s North Shore
Oahu’s North Shore always has waves so it’s never a bad time to surf—especially for beginners. Surf schools are very aware of wave sizes and degree of difficulty. If it turns out that the swell is strong that day, there are some coves that they can move you into.
If there isn’t a surfer among your family this is more fun to do together. Since you are all rookies and because surfing isn’t exactly easy, it’s fun to watch and support each other get better.
Most surf schools that I have found won’t take on more than 4 students at a time, but arrangements can always be made. Don’t be afraid to negotiate with the instructors if they are being resistant. The most important thing to do during your surf lesson is keep trying and just have fun!
