Surfing! It’s the quintessential Hawaiian activity, and can you really leave without at least trying it? Great—now that you’re convinced, let’s see what Island Watersports Hawaii has in store for you during your incredible Hawaiian vacation.
You will step aboard the company’s stunning 40-foot custom catamaran and head for a secret surf break, far from the frustrating throngs of would-be surfers all trying their luck in the crowded waters of Waikik! Your boat will escort you to Maunalua Bay, Oahu—one of Hawaii’s most scenic surf spots. The backdrop is stunning, with Oahu’s iconic Diamond Head volcanic cone looming in the distance. Once you’ve reached the wave break, you’ll unload, don your surf gear, and courtesy of Island Watersports Hawaii, learn a thing or two about the basic etiquette of surfing, paddling and well…actually getting up on the board.
The trained and friendly staff members will teach you to ride the waves in the very waters that were home to the original surfers; ancient Hawaiian royalty who first popularized the sport using wooden boards. The crowd-free location makes for a completely relaxed and pressure-free surfing experience, so first-timers will appreciate the lack of embarrassing collisions. It’s the perfect environment in which to learn, but even the more experienced surfers will enjoy riding the waves in Maunalua Bay.
Your excursion lasts approximately two and a half hours, and includes the lesson, a snack, and refreshment. Please be sure to wear a swimming suit, bring a towel and sunscreen, and perhaps a pair of sunglasses for the ride out and back! Here are some interesting facts about surfing to get you in the mood for your awesome experience ridin’ the waves, Hawaii-style:
