The only destination on Oahu’s fabled NorthShore immerses you in authentic Hawaii. Watermen thunder from Pipeline and Waimea, and in placid bays paddling. Welcome to the 7-mile miracle.
The Hans Hedemann Surf Center is conveniently located just footsteps away from the main Turtle Bay Resort, the surf lessons are just over by The Point – Sunset & Pool Bar. While we cannot control the waves, wind and weather, we have a backup spot just minutes away from the resort to guarantee the best surf for the day. Even if North Shore conditions are ripping at overhead waves (which North shore is known for), you can still catch some waves perfect for beginners.
The two-hour Hawaii surfing lessons go out three times daily at 9 am, noon, and 3 pm. It starts with a 20-minute land lesson where students learn proper water safety and etiquette, paddling technique, turning the surfboard, maneuvering over waves and positioning to stand up and ride your first wave. The rest of the time, about an hour and a half, is spent in the water learning to stand and ride waves!
