"Incredible experience! Matt is an amazing instructor. He stepped us through the whole process and pushed us into waves. The feeling of surfing my first wave is one I’ll never forget. Highly recommend to anyone!"

Hi, I'm Matt!

Your Waikiki surf instructor. 

I have been teaching surf for over 15 years and am certified in surf instruction and CPR. I have a huge love for the ocean and surfing the big waves which I have sought all around the world. It brings me absolute joy to teach others my passion and to watch my students enjoy their experience in the water with me. I am located in Honolulu and can't wait to catch waves with you!

WHAT TO EXPECT

Surfing is a really fun sport that requires some basic knowledge.  At Shaka Surfing Academy our lessons are all formatted the same way and depending on your skill level we will adjust the class.  To get you ready for the water in Waikiki, we follow a few steps before going in!

Land Lesson

Our lessons always start with land training where we'll go over everything you need to know from laying on your board to the pop-up!
