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

First time surfers my 14 and 11 year old. Plus my husband. Awesome experience. They want to surf at home on Long Island now. They loved Kyle and took 2 lessons in one day. The Beach is great from the grassy elevation. Took many videos. Awesome beach and my kids favorite memory.

Kauai Surf School introduced my entire family to surfing and I can't recommend them more highly. Years ago Allan taught me and my husband to surf and this trip he taught our kids. He is a great instructor and made both of our older kids feel safe and confident in the water. Our 3 year old was an eager observer... More
