Luxury surfing trips - advice

Hi everyone, I've been reading through these forums for a while but this is my first post. Hope to stay more involved

Basically, my fiancee and I have one last holiday (in April/May) before we have kids and we want to go on a properly amazing surfing trip.

We don't surf but want to learn, and want to go somewhere where there is other things to do as well. We'll need a decent surf instructor/school.

We also want it to be super easy, comfortable and relaxing - walk to beach, amazing hotel etc. Can be anywhere in the world

Has anyone been on a package surf trip such as Tropic Surf? Or are we better off finding a great hotel near a surf break?

Would love any advice or tips!

Learning to surf in a week is always tough. For easy waves with decent options for lessons I'd look on the south shore of Oahu. I've surfed all over and for true beginners it's hard to beat Waikiki beach. Orange County,CA has some decent slow rolling breaks but it's typically less tropical than Hawaii. Tons of places like the maldives or even Indonesia are going to have some waves that are alright for beginners but overall are better for folks with experience.

Don't know how it compares to other breaks but you could consider Dominical Costa Rica for ease and availability of other activities. Check out Dominical Waverider. Looks like they arrange some nice lodging and everything should be walkable.

Thanks guys, will check those out. With Zika in Costa Rica it makes things tricky... Waikiki sounds quite cool

Waikiki is cool, Hawaii in general is really unique and has tons to do. Last time we did 3 days on Kaui and 3 on Oahu which let us see a bunch of different aspects in a short amount of time.

Depends on one's definition of "cool" I suppose. I see Waikiki as a fake beach and a massive shopping mall, not a cool place to relax or explore. YMMV.

Anyone been on an Australia trip? Are there good breaks for beginners there?

Also what about Maldives?
