Ride the perfect wave with the Surfing Intensive, which provides you with an experiential, immersive journey into this iconic Hawaiian sport. By the end of the three-day Intensive, you will have the skills and confidence to paddle into a wave on your own during a full-fledged surf session.
Led by expert surfers selected from the Huaka’i Outfitters team, this Intensive uses land- and water-based lessons to give you a strong foundation, including knowledge about different surfboard types, how to wax and carry a board, and how to pick an optimal surf spot based on swell and wind direction and wave height. The Intensive also covers paddling techniques and essential surfing techniques, such as how to pop up and how to control the surfboard in the lineup.
The lessons of the Intensive also cover complementary subjects, including surfing-specific ocean safety and open-water swimming. In addition, to help you with your physical recovery, the Intensive offers a Spa Wet Ritual at the end of each daily session at Hi’ilani Spa, The Lodge at Kukui’ula’s extensive on-site wellness complex.
