There are a lot of places to sign up for surf lessons but I was happy I chose Kauai surf school in front of the Sheridan. Asher instructed us on land first. Explaining how to properly position our bodies on a board. We each practiced on land and he critiqued our form with kindness. You could tell he wanted us... More

Booked the 3 day Da Trio surf clinic online for the 8 AM start time for 3 surfers (1 adult, 1 teen, 1 tween). Kyle and Alan both are very experienced surfers and were excellent instructors in all respects. Highly recommend this surf school for lessons. They provide foam surfboards and a rashguard to wear for comfort. Da Trio was... More

Booked a last minute semi-private lesson for 2 of my children (ages 12 and 7). Asher was great with them, patient, very straightforward and quick to teach basic skills and help the kids try and catch some waves. The "lesson" was 1.5 hours long, and we all felt it was the perfect amount of time - there was lots and... More

My minor age son joined a group lesson during our stay. The surf instructor was so fun, and made it so easy for him to learn. It was affordable and the staff was fun and wonderful. Highly recommend this school!

Great place to start as a beginner! I took a lesson years ago, and had fun but didn't learn the skills I needed. This school is big on teaching you the basics and on making sure that you get as many opportunities to practice as possible. Asher (that's a guess on the spelling) was a perfect instructor, walking us through... More

Alan was a great instructor and the beach conditions and location ideal for learning to surf. We picked 8am session because of the other reviews and that was the perfect time for surf conditions - very easy to find a park nearby then too.

This is my 3rd time using Alan and Kauai Surf School for surfing lessons. Our family always has a great time practicing our surfing skills with these guys. They really break it down so it's easy to learn and you will "get up" on a board!! I know we will be back for more good times.

We did "Da Trio" because we are a family of 5 (3 teenagers and 2 adults). The 2 adults shared the 3 days which was very flexible of them to let us do. We had Asher the first day and Kyle the other 2 days. Both were great teachers and got everyone up on the board and by the third... More

Kyle was the instructor for our girls. They took a group of four lesson. Kyle was very helpful and encouraging! They were surfing in no time at all! He was the perfect teacher for our daughters! They couldn't wait to go out and shred again!

Great instructor! Things could have been better, or they could have been worse. Parking is slim and the hut is hard to find so give yourself an extra 45 minutes for parking and walking. Turn off Poipu Road at the Sheraton sign, drive all the way to back, turn left drive about 0.25 mile to Kiahuna resort, buildings are white.... More
