Hook up Surfing was started with the goal of getting people REALLY surfing longboarding, shortboarding and improving as quickly as possible in the water; meaning surfing new breaks and exploring new aspects of the sport. We offer safe and informative surf lessons/coaching from our expert instructors and pride ourselves on having a loyal clientele who love to surf whether they are in Hawaii or are back at home dreaming of their Hawaii surf sessions.
People often ask about the name “Hook up Surfing”. Actually the name came from one of Ivan’s inventions that is still in the process of being made, so we cannot disclose too many details. However the name also implies that our customers feel like they got an excellent service and feel like they got hooked up, like when someone hooks you up with free gear or good food. When you are done with a Hook up Surfing lesson, coaching, or photo/video session, we want you to feel like you got more of a lesson, coaching, or photo/video session than you paid for.
Our team is comprised instructors, photographers (who also assist with lessons) and videographers.
All of our instructors are certified by the State of Hawaii to teach surfing and are certified in CPR and Lifeguarding. Photographers also help keep an eye on and interact with surf students when they are out in the water.
