Surfing, Paddleboarding, and Kayaking on Oahu

Surfing, Paddleboarding, and Kayaking on Oahu

You can’t visit the Hawaiian islands without getting your feet wet in the Pacific Ocean. Pair your beach lounging time with a surfing, paddleboarding, or kayaking experience on Oahu—whether you’re a beginner or an expert, here are your options.

Surfing The gentle waves in Hawaii make it a good place for beginners to hop on a surfboard and test their balance. Sign up for a lesson with a local to learn the basics and you'll be riding the waves in no time.

Paddleboarding Stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) is one of the United States' fastest-growing activities, and it all started here in Hawaii with a couple of visionary surfers. Rent a board or take a lesson and join the stand-up movement.

Kayaking For those who want to get in on the action and enjoy the scenery, kayaking is the best option. Spend an afternoon on a guided excursion for uninterrupted coastal views, close looks at sealife, and opportunities for snorkeling.
