At Manawale'a Surf School Waikiki, I am dedicated to sharing my knowledge of Ocean Safety, Surfing & SUP Paddle Surfing, and personal surf related experiences. Over the years I have cultivated a unique and effective teaching method that makes learning to surf easy.
Your safety & well being while in the water is most important to us. Paying close attention to your surf instructor when they are giving safety & surfing instructions.
Our goal is to share our Aloha, knowledge & wisdom of ocean water and tides to currents, and the dynamics of surfing. We are here to make sure you have the safest and most enjoyable surfing experience ever.

My Experience, My Passion

Surfing is a passion I grew up with. While kids go to a park to play, for myself, it was the beach to surf. I travelled the world competing in the pro circuit in the 80's, competing with some of the greatest surfers in the world.
In 2019 I started my own surf school, Manawale'a Surf School Waikiki. With all I learned throughout the years, I have developed my own unique and effective teaching method, focusing on ocean safety, surfing and stand up (SUP) paddle board safety  & surfing etiquette. I feel it is my responsibility share my knowledge & wisdom by teaching the proper way that inspires the next generation.  It's all about safety and having fun.
