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!

My husband and I took a surf lesson on one of the first days of our honeymoon. Our instructor was Kyle and we only had 4 people total in our group. Kyle was super nice and patient! He is also a local so if your instructor is Kyle he can give you some good Kauai tips! The beach was also... More

Kauai Surf School is the best! Only 4 people in a group. I saw other companies with 6-10 people per group and it was a mess! I sat in the water with a teacher from another school while I was waiting for a good wave and he hardly spoke with the family he was giving lessons to! Not my kind... More

I took a 2 hour group lesson with 2 friends. The guys did a great job training us on what to expect when we got in the water, how to get up & how to fall correctly. They were super patient and helpful with everyone in the group when we got in the water. I was able to stand up... More
