Alan was my instructor and he was a super chill dude. This lesson was a highlight of my trip. 2 hours of warm water waves as the sun was setting on Poipu Beach. By the second wave I was standing up ( Thanks for the push, Alan!) and "feeling" like a pro! I'll definitely back for more when we visit... More

In early June my kids (12 and 9) did a semi-private 1 hour lesson. Their instructor was fabulous! He picked out a spot that wasn't intimidating to my kids and helped them be successful. They rode waves to shore many, many times during the hour. It was absolutely the highlight of their trip (and ours too). It was well worth... More

I signed up for a lesson after seeing all the fun people were having. From my first phone call everyone I interacted with was super nice. The instructor was patient and made sure the other kid in my group got up. It was a blast! Sign up on-line and you might score a free hat :-)

My two kids and I took a surf lesson on our last day of stay in Kauai. They were great and very patient. We actually managed to stand up on our boards a few times and enjoy surfing.

My 8 and 11 year old girls loved learning to surf and their instructor, Curran, was knowledgable and encouraging. They signed up for a group lesson, but there was only one other student, so the lesson felt private. The surf school meets at the surf shop next to Brennecke's at Poipu beach and you are taken to the beach next... More

I booked this for our three teenagers - 18 & 15 yr old boys and 12 yr old girl - they had a blast! We were met by the instructors, driven to the beach, where the instructors provided rash guards and boards. Due to the size of the group, my three kids were with one instructor - Curran (sp?). He...

This was an awesome experience! The class size is kept to 4 per instructor, so you'll get more personal attention and advice. I had doubts that I could actually stay on the board, but because of the great instructor my husband and I had no problem!

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

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!

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.
