What you'll do

At the onset  of the lesson we begin in the sand. We start warming up using yoga which assists in stretching your body and preparing your mind for surfing. Once you are ready, we teach the techniques of Pilates to improve your balance. Just before getting into the water, you will learn about the equipment, and your security in the ocean which is fundamental for beginners. Then the moment you have been waiting for, ocean water practice. We will guide you to an area with waist high water where you will be ready to catch your first wave.

My name is Frank and I am an experienced surfer and owner of Blue Ocean Breeze Surf School in Waikiki. We have all required licenses, certificates, permits and insurance to teach lessons. I have been teaching surfing and shaping boards for 16 years. I am a certified in CPR/First Aid, surfing instruction and APNEA. I grew up surfing and am lucky to be able to call it my profession.

With every person that I teach, ocean awareness and safety is the foundation for success. You will feel safe and comfortable on land prior to getting into the ocean.

I truly enjoy watching surfers of all ages and experiences fall in love with the ocean. I can't wait to share my passion with you!

Frank is very sweet, knowledgeable, and patient - an amazing coach! In my first private class I was able to catch 100% the waves! Strongly recommend this experience to anyone who genuinely wants to learn about surfing. Y’all have lots of fun in the water!

We really enjoyed our experience with Frank! Both of us had a fantastic time and will definitely book another lesson with him again. Frank is an experienced surfer and very skilled at reading waves which is key is helping beginners get to the perfect spot to catch their first waves. We got a work out being out on the water for the full duration and we appreciated the warm up exercises beforehand. Can’t wait to take another lesson with Frank!

Frank is an amazing instructor. His lesson plan is very well structured and process very effective. I took a private lesson with my girlfriend and we were very comfortable with the way we were taught by Frank to use our boards and position ourselves to catch the waves. All of this is covered on firm ground before heading to the water so by the time you are in the water you feel super safe and empowered by all the knowledge you have just acquired. It was so good that I was able to stand up and ride on my first attempt and my girlfriend on her second. His equipment were great and the boards had gopro mounts and Frank even went the extra mile to lend me his attachment to screw onto my gopro’s case. In total I was able to catch about 20 waves and able to stand up and ride on most of them. I cant recommend Frank enough for being a great guy and a great instructor. If you fail at a particular wave, he will tell you exactly what you did wrong in order for you to correct it next time. Hence, we were learning more with each wave. He is not the type of the instructors I read about that teach you the basics and then send you off on your own watching from distance, Frank will be right there with you guiding at each wave. The lessons were super personalized and you will be super exhausted after but you will have a lot of fun. Our only regret was not doing it even earlier into our trip so we could have surfed even more.

The one must-do activity I had for my Hawaii trip was to learn how to surf. Not only did I learn the correct leg position, stretches, and procedure...I actually got to ride a few waves! With Frank’s teaching expertise, I have been given the confidence to go surfing again some time. I especially appreciated Frank’s positivity, encouragement, and professionalism. 10/10 would recommend. Mahalo!

Coach Frank was super supportive, friendly and helpful. It was my boyfriend’s first time surfing, and by the end of the lesson he was catching waves by himself! I recommend booking a session with Frank. He has been surfing forever!
