Awesome time!

Had a great time with these guys! Me and my wife both took the lessons and we were up in five minutes. They were super friendly and positive and provided an awesome experience!

I booked my husband and daughter for their first ever surf experience with Kauai Surf School during our vacation. They were provided with rash guards and beginner boards and received some quick instruction on the beach, then headed for the water. I booked a regular lesson with four students and one instructor. The instructor was kind and enthusiastic. Each student... More

Thank you to Kyle for providing a great surf lesson. You could tell his priority was to actually teach you to surf and not just stand up. We appreciate the enthusiasm and helpful tips. It was a great lesson.

Kyle gave us a really great lesson. My teenage daughter never thought she'd like surfing, and at the end of the class was up on the board and having a great time. We took a group lesson and Kyle gave us a good heads up of what to expect on the beach, then coached us individually in the water. Loved... More

Kyle's lesson was stellar!! First lesson ever and it has turned out to be my favorite part of Kauai. I will be back and I will be in the water again with Kyle at my side. He's patient, brilliant and locally grown :-). Surfs up buddy, see you soon!!

Can't say enough positive about our experience with Kauai Surf School. We have taken three lessons with them and each has been a highlight our of trips. The instructors are calm and confident, They are patient and give helpful tips on how to improve your surfing. We are certainly beginners, but have seen improvement in our surfing after three lessons.... More

We did the 3 day surf lessons for our family (2 adults + 2 kids - age 11 & 13) and it is worth the time and $$! With the 3 day surf lessons, the best part is that you do not have to have the lessons on consecutive days - fit it into your plans! We had an amazing... More

Surfing with Sam was fabulous. It was an experience that I would only give up for shave ice.(which is next door) Still Sam was an excellent teacher and hilarious. And was good at picking up vibes.Put people who never got on a surf board before to ride waves into the beach. Damnit DeSean

Booked the 3 day lesson, for our trip. The lessons never had more than 4 people, and to be honest, that is the perfect class size. The school was flexible, with scheduling dates and times, that were not back to back, something I recommend for those who might be in good physical shape, or just want a small break, but... More

We found this to be a great value with the semi private surfing lessons for the 3 men in our family. The instructor Sparky was awesome and incredible job with teaching them to get up in the waves right away. Would recommend this company to anyone looking for lessons!
