Tehillah’s calm, patient and fun-filled teaching style has helped to inspire hundreds to engage in a lifelong passion for surfing. Tehillah loves introducing teaching first-timers to surf. She also revels in seeing the progress made by returning students. 

The number one goal for Tehillah and her team is to create an environment where students feel safe, at ease and comfortable enough to enjoy the water. After all, this type of relaxed and open atmosphere is how surfing should be experienced.

Every one of Ohana’s surf instructors are internationally qualifed. Between them they have decades of teaching experience, accompanying students of all ages and levels of ability. On top of that, they are all trained and qualified lifeguards. 

We can’t begin to express how blessed we feel to have chosen to surf with Ohana. With so many options out there, it’s difficult to know which one to choose. We were lucky enough to spend a week surfing with Tee, who is one of a kind and we truly felt like family. Her endless patience, encouragement and professional teaching was outstanding and we can’t wait to go back.
