Learning to surf on the North Shore when the surf is big is easy with the North Shore Surf Girls Surf School because we teach you to surf in a protected cove. On the North Shore there are many many different waves to surf on. Fortunately for us and our surf students Puaena Point located on the far East side of Haleiwa Bay is super protected from the larger surf and a super easy wave to learn to surf on.
Teaching children to surf on the North Shore of Oahu is one of our very favorite activities. The North Shore of Oahu is a wonderland for any child or adult who is a child at heart, especially in the surf. The North Shore Surf Girls teach surfing to children as young as 3 old. One of the many benefits of learning to surf as such a young age include instilling in a child a lifelong love of the ocean.
Summer time is almost here and the North Shore of Oahu’s famous huge waves are going to sleep as the Winter moves to the Southern hemisphere. Not to worry though the North Shore is blessed with trade winds that generate a wind swell that provides beginner surf students with the perfect size waves to learn to surf in. (Note in the Winter when it’s big we teach surfing lessons in a cove protected from the larger surf). While a surf lesson is a must do on the North Shore, there are many other fun activities to enjoy as well. For starters there are miles of beautiful white sandy beaches to explore which in the Summer are perfect for snorkeling, sea shell collecting and turtle viewing. Feel free to ask one of your surf instructors after your surf lesson for suggestions and directions to some of our secret off the beaten path beaches.
For the more adventuress type you can go on a shark tour , deep sea fishing or take a sunset cruise all out of Haleiwa Harbor. The Harbor is located on the North-East End of the town and is easy too find. If your super brave or just wanting […]

Surfs been super small….especially compared with the 10 plus 20ft swells the North Shore surf community enjoyed last Winter….No problem for the North Shore Surf Girls, we can teach surfing on small or big days because we know all the secret spots on the North Shore….Speaking of secrets there’s been some talk on the blogs about how the surfing world protects each other….this is very true…sometimes, well actually often me and my girlfriends laugh so hard at the reality of what’s “really going on” on the North Shore that is. Mostly it’s just funny, funny stuff and some pretty classic moments too! For me the longer I live this life of surfing everyday the more I feel an obligation to try to make the world and our community a better place….Because I’ve found if you take the time to look under the water out here you will find a lot of Aloha.
Pro surfer Andy Irons passed away on November 2, 2010 on his way home from a surfing contest. He was suffering from Dengue Fever and had pulled out of a contest because he was to sick to compete. Andy lived a life most of us can only dream of; traveling the world and surfing perfect waves. He won 3 World Surfing Championships, the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing 4 times and is the only surfer in the world to win events at every stop on the ASP World Tour of Surging. North Shore Surf Girl memories of Andy include watching him pull into barrel after barrel at Pipeline especially Back Door. He was an amazing surfer, super late drops, sick turns and incredible timing. He will be missed by many people. Condolences to his family and close friends.

When people think of the North Shore they think of gigantic waves only for professional surfers. The truth is that there are many good surfing waves for beginners and intermediate surfers, you only need to know where. For example the North Shore Surf Girls give lessons during the Winter surf season at a place known as Puaena Point. The wave located on the far right side of Waialua Bay just outside of Haleiwa town is perfect for first time surfers. If you know where to enter the water and how the currents flow you can surf there pretty much everyday during the Winter surf season on the North Shore of Oahu.
With Stand Up Paddle Boarding being the hottest thing going on the water these days in Hawaii, the North Shore Surf Girls is stoked to have Ms. Beccy Cravins on the team. She’s been winning the women’s division of many of the inaugural SUP races this year and is an excellent surf instructor, SUP competitor as well as a fitness coach.

Like most girls who grew up learning to surf at Pipeline on the North Shore of Oahu, I surfed with Jack when he was just a kid. He was one of the top chargers at Pipeline back in his day. I became a fan of Jack’s music when I read a story in Surfer Magazine about it. I promptly surfed on over to Napstar and down loaded some of his songs and was amazed with the soulfulness of it. Below is a music video from his new album To the Sea which should be a big hit.
Lucky for us North Shore people, Jack or rather “Majic Jack” as my mom calls him, cares a lot about our community and especially children. He and his beautiful wife Kim started the Kokua Foundation to teach all of us to recycle, reduce and reuse. While the foundation focuses on children the Johnson’s hold a concert most years at the Waikiki Shell to raise money and stoke everybody out. This year’s concert was awesome, there was an insane line up of local talent and some legends including Taj Mahal and Ziggy Marly along with Jack. Lots of good energy at the concert, […]
