Things to do in Oahu, Hawaii (HI): The Best Water Sports

October 16, 2021 Flossie Demartino

The Hawaiian island of Oahu is a surfer’s paradise, with swelling waves that can reach epic heights. No wonder, then, that it’s the site of one of the world’s premier competitions, the Triple Crown of Surfing. If hanging ten isn’t your thing, you can still enjoy the beautiful beaches – particularly famous Waikiki Beach in Honolulu. Art connoisseurs will appreciate the annual Hale'iwa Arts Festival, a celebration of local crafts, painting, jewelry, sculpture, dance, and music.

Pacific Soul Surfing

GUARANTEED TO SURF OR MONEY BACK! Pacific Soul Surfing, Learn to Surf, Waikiki, Oahu, Honolulu, Hawaii. Includes the surfboard with instructions. Pacific Soul Surfing is only a 5 minute walk to Waikiki Beach. We are located in Duke's Marketplace next to the Waikiki Beachcomber across from the Royal Hawaiian Hotel. Surf Lessons are for anyone who knows how to swim. We learn at the stand on how to stand up on the surfboard, and then we walk down to the beach to catch waves over a mostly sandy bottom. The waves are considered relatively safe and easy, as there's no major current, lifeguards are on duty, and you can sit off to the side when you're tired out of the way from other surfers without drifting away. Please talk with your instructor about staying out in the water with your surfboard after the surf lesson if you have the time and energy. Please note paddling is very exhausting and the hardest part of the whole thing.
