Attended a lesson this morning. Small groups, my two teens and I for our part. The school provides special t shirts when needed. Had a great instructor, Sparky, very dedicated, calm and so nice with us. We all loved the experience. This first time for us was wonderful. Being able to stand up in the wave is so cool ! Mahalo Sparky !

Our two teens from NY were pumped to try surfing for the first time while we stayed at the Sheraton Poipu beach. After asking around who was best, we walked over to the black tent of Kauai Surf school and booked a two hour beginner group lesson. The instruction was excellent and our two kids were up and surfing the beginner waves within the first hour on 9 ft lightweight boards! Our instructors Kurin and Nick were awesome and stayed with our kids in the water and helped them learn how to time the waves. Then the kids got to hang onto their surf boards for a half hour to 40 minutes after the lesson to practice what they learned. All in all a great experience !

Sparki and his crew are the "greatest". My two grandsons are three years apart in age. Both have surfed before and they have different levels of surfing ability. Kauai Surf School was able to accommodate both of them. All of the surfing instructors with whom they worked were wonderful. They both learned a lot, improved a lot, and had a fantastic time to boot. Since their return home, they have not been able to stop talking about their awesome surfing experiences with Kauai Surf School. It doesn't get any better than this.

This was the first time for my son and I to surf. Our instructor, Kyle was great. There are 4 to a group so there is a lot of personal instruction. We both got up after a few tries and we loved it. Must call ahead and make reservations because they are busy and only have classes a few times a day.

Our instructor Kyle was so patient and sweet. Our group was mixed from dads in their 60's to kids in their teens. I'm 33 and was joining the group as a single--stood up on my third wave! The guys made it a great experience-super simple instructions and got us in the water almost immediately. Was great how encouraging the instructors were-they cheered when we stood up. These guys are most likely really amazing surfers and they are so patient. Note to any other people prone to sea-sickness-the swell will get you! It sounds ridiculous but do yourself a favor and take a non-drowsy Drammamine or wear a bracelet so that you'll be able to finish the lesson.
