Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your Kauai surfing lesson takes place on the North Shore in the waves of Hanalei Bay, where a professional instructor will teach you the basics of the ancient Hawaiian sport.

Your expert instructor is a big-wave surfer who is dedicated and passionate about surfing, and who can easily teach you the skills required for learning to ride a wave. During this 2-hour private surfing lesson, you’ll learn the proper place to sit on the board and the best techniques for paddling, as well as how to choose the best waves and what to do if you fall.

For beginning surfers, the soft-top boards that are used for lessons are safe, wide, and stable, and are the best boards for learning to surf in the warm waters off Kauai. Winter often has the largest waves, but the protected conditions of Hanalei Bay make the area perfect for learning. If there’s ever a day where the water’s too flat or the ocean is simply too rough, you’ll head to another spot on the island where conditions are a little bit better.

This private Kauai surf lesson has one instructor per participant, and a semi-private lesson features one instructor for a group of two or three. Read the Itinerary for more lesson details.

Excellent for 13 year old!

I was nervous but didn’t need to be. Kiara was awesome with my 13 year old. He loved it. Beautiful of course scenery…. And lots of little waves. It was a bit crowded for my liking…with a lot of beginners but she kept him safe and helped him find good waves. He was spent the rest of the day!

Everything we were hoping for! We were nervous to try surfing for the first time but our experience was nothing but amazing. The view alone from the bay they take you to is UNREAL. It was a very easy morning, quick and fun! Shoutout to our instructor Luca, he made it fun and “carefree”(because let’s be real I fell a lot). We left our lesson though so happy to have done this awesome activity for our trip to Kauai!
