My 13 year old wanted to try surfing in Hawaii. Kauai Surf School was perfect for her first time on a board. Had a two hour private lesson, instructor was patient and really made her feel comfortable. She was surfing well before the lesson was over. The beach is small with very small waves which made it easier to learn.... More

Summary: Friendly, professional coaching for a range of beginning surfers. KSS provides a very safe, enjoyable atmosphere with a focus on getting you standing and surfing within the first lesson. Group lessons are a good value and add a memorably authentic experience to your Hawaiian vacation. Details: I came to Kauai Surf School with a slightly more aggressive set of... More

We booked this surf school while on a cruise. The instructor was great. The beach/waves were perfect for begineers. Two of the three teenagers I brought to the lesson rode their first waves to the beach. Awesome time, awesome instructor, great beach.

Kyle gave us a great 90 minute lesson in surfing. All five of us were able to get up on the surfboard once out on the water. This school comes highly recommended, especially Kyle!

Kyle was the best. I am 53 years old and have never surfed. I chose the private lesson and on my 3 rd try I was surfing and am hooked. He was a great instructor and grew up on the island and his background and education is in teaching. A real people person. The waves are not to big and... More

My ten year old son and I went out for a private lesson and had a great time. Asher and Sparky were our instructors. They had us up in no time.. I look forward to doing it again. Go with this school, also if you book online, you get a free hat! And try to go early as it gets... More

If you travel by the adage, when in Rome.... when in Hawaii you have to give surfing a shot. We had read the reviews, and were staying Poipu, and decided that the Kauai surf school was our choice to try out surfing for the first time. While many of the students in the various schools on the beach seem pretty... More

My 11 and 14 year old girls attended the 10 am group lesson. We were staying at the Poipu Sheraton, so this was a very convenient location. Kyle was the instructor, and the girls were very happy with him. The group size is 4, so its almost as good as an individual session, especially for a beginner class. We were... More
