Will you still be offering lessons at Turtle Bay and how will School of Surf be different?

Jamie O’Brien Surf Experience will continue to offer premium experiences at Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore as well as at the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego. Jamie O’Brien School of Surf at Twin Fin Waikiki is a new brand that focuses on family and group surf experiences at a more affordable price point vs the private premium-priced experiences on offer at Jamie O’Brien Surf Experience locations. Guests are encouraged to visit both locations while on vacation on Oahu to experience the best of both worlds – the iconic and easily accessible gently rolling waves of Waikiki Beach at Jamie O’Brien School of Surf as well as the exclusive and powerful breaks of the world-famous North Shore Oahu at Turtle Bay Resort.

Does Jamie teach the lessons, or do you work with other instructors?

While Jamie isn’t available to reserve a lesson with, he makes regular appearances both in the shop and in the water surprising guests and sharing their experiences with them. We employ a select group of top-notch LOCAL surf instructors handpicked by Jamie for their ocean knowledge and surfing prowess and trained to his exacting standards.
