Whether you want to take a lesson or rent a surfboard, Hans Hedemann has you covered. Our award winning staff will guide you through the waves and teach you all the necessary  skills.


While visiting Hawaii, a surf lesson is a must. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced surfer, our lessons will benefit you. You are guaranteed to be surfing within the two hour lesson.


Waikiki Beach and North Shore are some of the most iconic places to take your first surfing lesson. You will enjoy the beautiful backdrop of Waikiki or TurtleBay Resort. Your friends and family can watch you from the beach. For those who are not joining us in the water, grab a drink or a bite to eat. It is going to be a great show!

SUP Lessons & Rentals

Standup paddling is an emerging watersport with a Hawaiian heritage. Standup paddling provides a good workout, for both the muscles and cardiovascular system. Come and enjoy the sport with the instructors of Hans Hedemann Surf School.

Other Activities
