Learn to Foil on Oahu
If you are thinking about learning how to foil, you are in for a wild ride. You will feel like a total kook again and like a little grom catching the first waves. Before you jump in, inform yourself as much as possible and learn from someone that already went through the hard lessons.
We get asked almost daily about SUP foiling lessons. Unfortunately, for liability reasons, Blue Planet does not offer foil lessons, rentals or demos.
We highly recommend taking lessons. It makes the learning curve much safer and easier. We refer customers to one of our four talented foiling friends who offer private lessons. We only make the referral and are not receiving any compensation or have any affiliation with these independent instructors:
So: start with a lesson behind a boat or jet ski with a good instructor, you will not regret it. Jeff and Greg have the right equipment available to make it easier to get up on foil and get the feel for it, it will save you days of flailing in the surf.
Jeff Chang also offers wing foiling lessons. Click here for a playlist of wing foiling videos with countless tips.
We do have lots of foil videos on our youtube channel that are helpful to watch, see below for some instructional foil videos, but nothing beats a one on one lesson with someone who went through the learning process, has mastered foiling and can guide you. It's not just that but they will take you to the right place to learn safely on the proper gear.
Good luck and enjoy but watch out, you might get hooked.

It really depends on the conditions, a small, uncrowded crumbly wave is best. Kahului harbor is popular but best to find a spot that is not crowded.
If you had to pick one spot to learn to prone and sub foil in Hawaii and you could already foil behind a jet ski, what would it be ?
