oA good land lesson when learning to surf will include the following steps. How to be safe in the water How to be safe in the water it’s important to understand that the water is fluid. Well, this may seem an obvious point the fluid nature of the water means that things are changing all the time in the surf. One has to learn to have “situational awareness in the ocean. Always watch the waves and the surf zone. Be ready at any time to jump off your board and duck underwater to avoid a wave or another surfer. Never pedal directly below another surfer and never sit directly in front of another surfer. This is what we call the lineup. Surfers will sit in a row next to each other so that they do not get washed on top of each other when a bigger wave rolls in. There are many other little safety hacks that we will go into greater detail with you on the beach.

From time to time a potential surf student asks the North Shore Surf Girls Surf School what backs us better then other surf schools on the North Shore of Oahu? My response is that we don’t know, because we have never taken a surfing lesson from one of the other surf schools on the North Shore. We can tell them that with our surf school we focus on the individual needs of our surf students. For example some people are more athletic then others and may learn to surf very quickly, other people need more hands on surfing instruction. Young children also need to have more attention to keep them safe while learning to surf. One question to ask when deciding which surf school to learn from is “are they licensed and do they have insurance?”. Only a few surf schools on the North Shore are actually licensed and insured. Happy surfing!
Actually the surf is mostly bigger on the North Shore of Oahu then in Waikiki mostly in the winter months. More specifically when the winter is in the Northern hemisphere. During this time there is a lot of storm activity in the North Pacific which turns up the ocean and sends swells across the pacific. Some of those swells reach the North Shore of Oahu and create waves. Fortunately for our surf school and our surf students there is a protected cove near Haleiwa town on the North Shore where the waves are always small and safe.
