Our Story

Carol Philips founded North Shore Surf Girls with the goal of providing an inclusive, fun, and safe experience for people of all ages, from all over the world, to learn how to surf.

Growing up on the North Shore, she fell in love with surfing and discovered it to be both thrilling and intimidating. North Shore Surf Girls are here to take away the intimidation factor and focus on fun by teaching you what the protocol is for board responsibility, how to look for currents, and, most importantly, how to get up on your feet and ride a wave!

Time is our most precious gift. Make the most of your visit to Oahu by learning to surf with instructors who care and love to share Hawaii’s heritage with the world.

“Best surf lessons in the best location!”

I was nervous about learning how to surf– not sure why! It ended up being a great day. Stood up on my first try. Carol explained things well and even helped students from other surf camps because their instructors weren’t doing a great job explaining things. Carol and her colleagues were very professional yet laid back. Highly recommend Surf Girls.” -Jamie A

Tripadvisor reviews of Oahu surf lessons
Well worth the trip up from Waikiki! I booked a tour with North Shore Surf Girls with less than 48 hours’ notice. The booking process was super easy and I was sent very specific details on where to meet at the lesson time. Carol was a great teacher, really helped my technique, improved my confidence, and went above and beyond what I would have expected for a surf lesson. I would definitely return and book with these girls again, I had an absolute ball!

We had our two teenage kids take lessons with NSSG and they absolutely loved it! They had never surfed before and were up over and over again. Our daughter 16 felt like she was surfing with good friends. Our kids loved the twin instructors they had the first day and both our kids loved having Carol as a teacher the second time around. Our 13-year-old son was unsure about surfing but was totally hooked by the first lesson. Thanks so much for all of the great information and teaching. We would highly recommend anyone to NSSG! They are the best.

Carol and her assistant were great teachers. They were very clear during training and gave great instructions while out in the water. I really liked that the lesson was quick and we were out in the water immediately. They were really friendly too based on other instructors I saw out in the water. We were a group of 5 ladies and 2 guys, and we all surfed successfully. Thank you so much for the memories, Carol!!! Mahalo!
