    • The transition from paddling to standing.Lessons are taught in a beautiful protected cove away from the bigger waves the North Shore of Oahu is known for . Upon arrival surf students are fitted with a surf shirt and a surf board and head straight to the sandy beach to start the beach portion of the lesson.
