I would have never dared to try surfing... but this lesson had been booked by my partner so I went along! I had so much fun! After the explanations on the ground, I thought it'd be much harder in the water and I wouldn't be able to stand up on the board... but with tips from Kyle, our instructor, I... More

Fantastic experience for first time surfers. I really appreciated the small class size and the one-on-one instruction and corrections. It was a relaxed atmosphere but I really feel like I learned the basics. I highly recommend this school! I observed the other schools around us in the water and in a completely biased and unscientific study, our class got up... More

Unfortunately, we sucked at surfing... but we had a lot of fun trying. Forker (his last name, we can't remember his first. Sorry!) was a great instructor. Also had a lot of local knowledge that he was more then happy to share with us about the island. Take his advice on restaurants, he was spot on!

Fun for the entire family. Bring sunscreen, snack and a cold drink. A wonderful day to be in the ocean.

Awesome Experience!!! Kyle, our instructor, was great. We had 3 in our group and all 1st time surfers. We took 3 lessons and by the third one, we all wanted more!!! Kyle made it fun and challenging...based on what we wanted to get out of the class. This was one of the highlights of my vacation to Kauai...I highly recommend... More

I did one two-hour lesson, just because I was curious. The teacher told me that I would end up getting up on the board by the end of the lesson. I was skeptical, but he was right. By the end, I at least got to surf a little bit and that's exactly what I wanted. If that is your goal,... More

You gotta go with this company if you've ever wanted to learn to surf. Our coach Kyle taught us the basics (we were first-timers) and we stood up on our boards within the first couple of tries. A miracle! We fell a lot too, but duh, we'd never tried surfing before. Kyle was patient and fun, and he taught us... More

My boys and I (14, 11, and 40something) vacationed in Poipu this summer. We scouted out surf lessons for beginners and I am thrilled that we chose Kauia Surf School. Alan - the best surf instructor ever! - gave us each the attention we needed to make sure that we all had a great surf experience. We were all surfing... More

My son (15) and I (let's just say older than 15) both had a great experience at Kauai Surf School! Booking was easy online and the staff was very helpful. Kyle was our instructor and he was fantastic... very patient with this old gal! The class of 4 was a perfect size to make sure that we all had individual... More
