Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your Kauai surfing lesson takes place on the North Shore in the waves of Hanalei Bay, where a professional instructor will teach you the basics of the ancient Hawaiian sport.

Your expert instructor is a big-wave surfer who is dedicated and passionate about surfing, and who can easily teach you the skills required for learning to ride a wave. During this 2-hour private surfing lesson, you’ll learn the proper place to sit on the board and the best techniques for paddling, as well as how to choose the best waves and what to do if you fall.

For beginning surfers, the soft-top boards that are used for lessons are safe, wide, and stable, and are the best boards for learning to surf in the warm waters off Kauai. Winter often has the largest waves, but the protected conditions of Hanalei Bay make the area perfect for learning. If there’s ever a day where the water’s too flat or the ocean is simply too rough, you’ll head to another spot on the island where conditions are a little bit better.

This private Kauai surf lesson has one instructor per participant, and a semi-private lesson features one instructor for a group of two or three. Read the Itinerary for more lesson details.

We had an excellent surfing lesson...

We had an excellent surfing lesson with a young instructor named Evan. Having had one lesson already with another company (we were somewhat unhappy) we were amazed at how technically astute Evan was, and how patient he was getting us up on the surfboards. There was just the right amount of on-shore instruction, then plenty of time out in the water. The beach town of Hanelei was beautiful and serene, making this one of the most perfect days of our vacation. We could not have been happier! And we surfed until we couldn't surf any more!

This was one of the most fabulous adventures we had! We had so much fun learning to surf. We had an excellent instructor and made it seem less like a class and more like an afternoon of friends catching some waves. By the end of the day we were way past the beginners stage and we had made a great local friend.
