Of course not all Oahu surfers compete. In fact some don’t agree with the competitive spirit… they just love the shear joy of the ocean, the thrill of riding waves and freedom! It’s an awesome way to stay in shape and affordable too… once you buy the board!
Get in on the local fun, try surfing Waikiki. Look for surf lessons on Oahu at surfboard stands along Waikiki Beach… most rent surfboards and offer surf lessons. Some North Shore surf shops teach surfing too.
WARNING: Do not attempt surfing Hawaii at Oahu beaches without lessons and advice from lifeguards and locals. Even expert swimmers and surfers can and do drown in rapidly changing ocean conditions. The waves are much stronger than they look from shore. Stay safe and heed warnings!
I recommend surfboard rentals at QSB Hawaii owned by former pro surfer Jason Gantz. QSB has awesome prices and is conveniently located across from Hilton Hawaiian Village next to Wailana Coffee House. QSB also offers surfing lessons.
Jason coached the Campbell High School’s Kalaeoloa surf team in the late 1990s helping them take 2nd place in the nation.
Catch some waves and see what surfing Hawaii inspirates in you!
