I took lessons from Kai with my 14-year-old son, and we had a blast. Kai's surfari shuttle picked us up from the resort and took us to a great secret surfing spot for beginners. The beach was a rock beach, but they had reef shoes for participants. I was surprised to learn that they even had some in my size... More

My wife and I had a blast with our first surfing experience. This surf school gives you the tools and confidence you need to know that it is not so hard to get on a board and catch a wave. Thanks for the experience!

My 12-year old son and I took a group lesson with Kai and his instructors last week. It was the best part of our entire trip to Hawaii! We got up on our boards right away and couldn't stop smiling. The focus on safety was especially important, from the lesson to the location. We want to go back to Hawaii... More

Kai Sallis surf school was a great experience! I had the pleasure to use them on2 separate trips. The instructors were fantastic in that they made the experience painless - they had us up and actually riding most waves! They were professional and fun. I will use them every time I go back

Everyone in the group was successful. It isn't hard. You're in Hawaii, don't miss out on learning to surf. Totally worth every penny. Go, don't hesitate. Give them your money and go home to tell your friends an awesome story. Barrack was great. Lesson was great. So much fun.

We had a great 3 on 1 lesson with Gerald. He was personable and thoughtful in his instruction. The format of an in shop briefing, ride over to the beach and getting situated was perfect. All in All a very professional operation and appreciated the discount for guests of the Marriott. Also great that they provided rash guards and booties... More

We took our 5 year old out for a first lesson and it couldn't have been better. The one on one attention was exactly what she needed to feel comfortable. While she was on her board my son (10 yrs old) and I had an instructor working just with us. Great ratio of instructors to learners makes this a top... More

My teens were both up on the boards within 15 minutes, and spent several hours surfing after their lesson. Great instructors. Although there were many surfers nearby, they were able to keep everyone safe.

Barak rocked it!! He was very personable. Awesome instructor for both my 12 year old son and myself. This was one of the highlights of our Hawaii trip. I would personally recommend this company to anyone, especially because of our experiences with Barak. Ryan, the photographer, caught some excellent footage, and even took time to offer some expertise on surfing!... More
