The Twin Fin Hotel has surfing in its DNA and invites family travelers to hang 10 this year. With summer around the corner, there is no better time for travelers to test the waters in the birthplace of surfing. Located along Waikiki’s shoreline, this property just launched an epic new experiential surf school with the help of nine-time Pipeline champion, Jamie O’Brien.


Learn to Surf

In collaboration with the Jamie O’Brien Surf Experience and Beach Candy Waikiki, The Twin Fin Hotel is the home of the Oahu native, professional surfer and filmmaker’s latest venture. Surf lessons are designed to guide beginner and first-time surfers through Waikiki’s rolling waves. The Jamie O’Brien School of Surf Waikiki specializes in family and group surf lessons and experiences with personalized instruction on premium equipment. Every surf lesson is designed by O’Brien and taught by top-notch instructors.


Check-In, Paddle Out

With every stay, guests are rewarded credits for Beach Candy Waikiki, which can be redeemed for a variety of water sport activities including surfboards, SUPs, beach chairs, umbrellas and more. Real-time surf conditions are streamed throughout the hotel thanks to Surfline, the world’s leading company for wave forecasting and surf reports. Check out the Surfline in-room channel for surf content at the hotel and enjoy a one-month free trial of Surfline’s Premium subscriber experience.
