What you'll do

This private surf session will be broken down into three parts. First we will cover the current surf conditions. How waves change depending on swell type, wind direction and tide. Next we will cover ocean safety, how to spot rip currents and surfing etiquette. Finally before we hit the water, go over all the proper techniques for paddling out, being able to line yourself up to catch the best waves on offer and successfully riding them in. Whether you are complete beginner looking to catch your first wave or an experienced surfer looking to improve your skills. You will have a fun, safe, rewarding learning experience for everyone!

My husband and I booked a surfing session with Shane hoping to get an authentic experience from a pro. Our session turned out to be more than our expectations and one of our favorite things during our trip to the Garden Island. Shane was flexible with us as there was some rain coming and we were able to meet up in a convenient location. He gave us a thorough but understandable overview of everything we needed to know. He made the whole experience fun and easy, we felt right at home on the boards and in the water. We both were able to successfully catch waves while enjoying the beautiful scenery of Hanalei Bay. Thank you Shane for this awesome experience!

Perfect time for a couple. Wife and I had a blast watching each other ride some waves in and Shane made sure we caught some great waves. Thanks Shane!

Fantastic experience in an incredible location. We were the only ones out on the water the day we went. The views from the ocean of Hanalei and the mountains behind were incredible. Shane pushed me but not too far outside my comfort zone. The surfing instruction was great. I learned a lot.

Shane is a great teacher. He took me to a nice, easy spot for my first time out. It was my first time surfing and after showing me what to do onshore, I was able to stand up on my first wave! I highly recommend his services and would definitely go to him again for future lessons.

The surf conditions didn’t live up to the surf report I saw on surfline.com but Shane made sure I got my money’s worth. He was very accommodating and I’d recommend surf lessons with him no matter if you are a beginner or have some experience.
