So much fun! I had a blast and was able to get up on the board on my first try thanks to a great and patient instructor. Highly recommend Kauai Surf School.

My kids did a lesson and LOVED it! The instructor was awesome, the spot perfect and they had such a good time! I like to surf so I really want my kids to like it too and they both were asking to surf again today. Thank you Kauai Surf School! They have also been super helpful and great about renting boards.

Really great instructor, easy to follow, I got up and rode a wave in on the second try! Very fun and definitely worth the time and money.

Two 13-year old girls, one a little too sure of herself and one a little too timid. Esiah got them both up on their boards by the end of their semi-private lesson. He was gracious and professional. I was surprised and pleased that 2/3 of the 90 minutes was spent in the water (I’ve heard a lot of complaints about some surf lessons being more land-based instruction than in-water experience). Yes, the beach is a little crowded but the instructors seemed to communicate well with each other and establish lanes with each other each time they had students in the water. We had an afternoon lesson in October, which we were concerned would be difficult due to the high winds, but it ended up being great. It is impressive for one instructor to handle two completely different early-teen learners and send them both away grinning ear to ear. Priceless.

This is a very fun thing to do in Kauai for all ages. I was worried I might be in a lesson with a bunch of kids (I am over 50) but there were more people my age than kids in the class. Esiah our instructor was very patient and helpful. Everyone in the class got up on the board several times, even if only for a few seconds. I highly recommend this class!
