What to expect
If you’ve always wanted to try surfing but didn’t know where to start, dive into Hawaii’s favorite sport with this fun introductory lesson. Spend 2 hours along the shore of Hawaii’s famed Hanalei Bay learning fundamentals of surfing.  With the expertise of your certified instructor, learn how to properly position yourself on a board, watch the waves and gain the confidence to stand up. Understand ocean patterns and safety practices to ensure a fun and safe foray in the endless summer of surfing. See the Itinerary below for a breakdown of the lesson. The gentle waves of the bay on Kauai’s North Shore are ideal for beginners. In the rare event that conditions are not suitable, your guide will take you to another nearby spot on the island.

Great beginners surfing experience
Jun 2021 • Family
We had a private lesson with Sean. It was excellent, very chilled and he made sure we were able to have a fun time and learn. Personalise teaching and tips and we were all standing on our first few waves. Came back again and hired boards.

A+ Father/Daughter Surf Lesson
Apr 2021 • Family
They took my 10 year-old daughter and me to surf by the Hanalei pier. We both caught waves and stood in the first 10 minutes. My daughter was grinning from ear to ear, and wants to keep surfing. Kay and Tapu are fantastic instructors.

Aloha. Thank you so much for taking your surf lessons. It is perfect to do together with your young one if you can cause they will want to get back in there and you can watch their backs and have good family fun. Kat and Tapu love what they do! Yours, Alapa's and crew.

Best lesson with Scott
Jan 2020 • Solo
I don’t often write reviews but had to mention my experience taking a private lesson with Scott. He is by far the best instructor I have had for surfing lessons (taken at two different places in Princeville and Australia). I am just past a beginner, and I returned for lessons with Scott because he offers a lot of advice, watches you when you’re standing up and after (instead of just pushing you into waves), and really is invested in making you get better. I had been standing up incorrectly for a year and he helped correct my positioning. Highly recommend!

TripAdvisor sent me the incorrect start time
Sep 2019 • Friends
I’m sure the surf lesson would have been excellent, if I actually had known the start time was at 9:30am. I booked through TripAdvisor, which sent me an email detailing two start times: 10am and 10:30am. Naturally I assumed the lesson started at 10:30am and I had to be at the surf shop to check in at 10am. I got a call from my surf instructor at 9:45am asking me where I was; apparently the lesson started at 10am and I had to check in at 9:30am. There was no mention of this whatsoever in my confirmation email. The surf instructor was sympathetic, but ultimately, the issue was with TripAdvisor since other people in my lesson group booked through the surf shop directly and showed up at the proper time. I was charged the full lesson with no hope of a refund. Very disappointed. Thankfully I was able to file a dispute with my credit card company; they are looking into the matter.

fun times!
Aug 2019
Our surfing was moved to Kahili the night before..we had a great time and got a lot of chances to catch waves with Miguel. He taught us a lot about the ocean and what to do. It was a little confusing at first to find where to meet on the beach itself because there were several other companies and groups going out but other than that it was a fun experience.

A must for first timers.
Jul 2019 • Couples
Our instructors were Evan and Noah,they did a great job. Definitely would recommend taking lessons, they can get you up surfing right away, making for a much better experience than trying to learn on your own.

Great experience...Highly recommended.
We booked this fairly last minute. We looked at lessons on the resort but wanted to venture off. The lesson was at Kāhili Beach Preserve, an amazing little beach with great waves. Pono was a great teacher for 4 new surfers. My crew was my 16 year old daughter, 14 year old son and 2 mid 40s adults. All were able to get up and ride a wave. We all are hooked and ready to try again.

Amazing lesson!
Jul 2019 • Couples
Me and my husband were first time surfers. Because of good tide, we were able to surf in Hanalei Bay. Sometimes the surf school has to change locations depending on conditions. Nate was our instructor and he killed it! We had a minimalist lesson on the beach then headed to the water for the remainder of the lesson. He answered all of our questions and made sure we spent as much time riding waves as possible. We caught tons of waves! Highly recommend!

Surfing with Nate
Jun 2019 • Couples
Love this family-run surf school. Our instructor, Nate, grew up surfing the waves of Kauai. He's knowledgeable, friendly, and calm. They have a permit to surf an alternate location when Hanalei Bay is flat. Gorgeous spot with no crowds and nice waves. Great experience!

Such a great experience! Highlight of my vacation!
Jun 2019 • Friends
Wow. all I can say is that I'm hooked! Had such an amazing experience! This company is particularly great because the ratio of student to teacher was low (4:1) so I caught a ton of waves and got a lot of attention. Thank you Miguel for being a great teacher! <3
