Aloha Taylor,
The place for you is called Kahaluu, lots of surf lessons are given there. Be humble and respect the aina and the culture and you will have fun. Only the obnoxious ones have trouble, like anywhere else.

Aloha!!!I am moving too honolulu at the end of jan from Vancouver island Bristh columbia for a year , im very scared after reading all these posts about how locals are so hatefull too visiters i hope that it is just the few that have posted!, i dont no how too surf at all i have only been twice in my LIFE. Of course i want too learn im just wondering if maybe i should wait till i come home and learn in tofino, cuz it seems pretty scary and it seems noone wants us "new be's" in the water, i just dont understand, dont people remember when they had too learn something?..my question is... im 21 and 110 pounds and i dont feel like getting a "BEAT DOWN" the second i arrive, please let me know a safe area, friendly area with small swells that me and my girlfriends can learn on!!thank you much!!!

Diamond Head (Ewa) has consistent waves, but not too punishing; just need to have paddle biceps; locals seem cool, but carry some pakalolo in your fanny pack to placate aggressive transplants from San Fernando. Aloha

Diamond Head is nowhere near Ewa.  Bring a six pack of beer, it's legal and the locals will suck 'em up.  Just set it on the ground near some surly types and back away slowly.  If they shake a shaka at you, you are in, brah.

Thinking about what Nvder said, maybe he meant Ewa side of Diamond Head.  Locals give directions like this, sorry for my earlier misunderstanding, I'm losing it.  I've been away too long, gotta get back home.

RE: the best places in kona to surf as a beginner

Ill be working on the NCL cruise ship based out of Honolulu. After I finish my time on the ship I plan to live in the Honolulu area. Ive done a little surfing on the east coast where we have maybe 4' waves if we are lucky :) It was on a long board, but I want to start on a shortboard in Hawaii...are there any area's on Oahu that are good for learning to surf on a shortboard? I have heard there are similarities with surfing/snowboarding, and I snowboard...can anyone shead light on my questions?

Thanks in advance.
