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.

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

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.

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.
