Cliff was awesome! One of the best activities on the island. My wife and I had a great time. Highly recommended!

Had read great reviews about this group and now understand why they are all 5 star. We met Cliff at a beach they had been surfing that week (location changes according to conditions) and he got the 4 of us (including 2 kids, ages 9 and 12) started quickly and surfing within 30 minutes. He even let the kids surf... More

My husband and I had the time of our lives. Cliff made surfing fun and easy for the both of us. Plan to bring extra cash, you will want to tip him more for such an amazing experience.

While staying on Kauai I wanted to take surf lessons. I picked Learn to Surf because of the excellent reviews and I can just add another one. It was an excellent experience. I was lucky to come back for 3 more times. We always had small groups, the guys always picked great spots, nice sandy beaches, very comfortable for beginners.... More

The best advice that we gained from the blue Ultimate Kauai Guidebook-surfing lessons from this school. We took our first lessons from Cliff and Wesley last August. When you take your first lesson, they tell you that you can come back anytime and rent their gear for $15. (Lessons are $45) On our recent return trip to the island, my... More

1st time surfers who had a great time learning to catch a wave. They meet you at a local beach with the best conditions for beginners. Cliff was very helpful and more reasonable priced than the competition. We didn't have to bring anything as Cliff had it all.

The staff at Learn To Surf were great! They returned my phone call quickly and got me in the same day for a lesson. They gave me great directions - important on Kauai, as many of the little beaches can't be seen from the main road - to a beach where the waves were just right. This group gives lessons... More

Cliff was my instructor, and he was amazing. I had a great time learning to surf for the first time and did way better than I expected. I really wanted to take a 2nd lesson, but it didn't work out. I will definitely come back to these guys next time I'm in Kauai. One piece of advice I would give... More

These guys were fantastic, patient and professional. Cliff was great at explaining the safety tips on shore and quickly got us up and at em in the water. Wesley (I think that was his name) was great with our kids and took his time and even let them use the SUP equipment after surfing. Great experience overall.

Called these guys based on the review in the Ultimate Kauai travel guide. Definitely the right call. Nephi and Cliff really know how to get us out of shape old guys, as well as the young ones up and surfing. Try to hang with Cliff or Nephi if you have a choice. They pick the spot where the best surfing... More
