Do you want to learn how to surf or paddleboard? What better place to learn than in the surfing capital of the world, Hawaii!! At Joint Base Hickam-Pearl Harbor, you can learn to do both. The staff at Hickam Beach can give you an all-inclusive surf lesson where they will show you proper technique, gear, etiquette and methods to help you shred those waves. Classes start out on land and then on water near the shore. After you are comfortable, you can take the surf taxi out to the breaks for some awesome surfing. The experienced instructors will provide you with everything you need to have a good experience and make memories that will last a lifetime. You must be able to swim without a life jacket. For more information, call or visit the Hickam-Harbor office.
