My wife and I had a great time with our surf lesson. It was our first time going and the instructor still managed to get us both standing. We did the group lesson w/ 1 other couple and rarely had to wait to go (may have been b/c it was November). After 2 hours we were exhausted and satisfied.

We had a good time and Jason was a great instructor. The location was rocky and the waves dropped you on the rocks. You knew it was not that good of location as the only people surfing there were from the different surf schools. I know we are beginners but we have taken lessons in Florida and Waikikie and there...

My six year old daughter took a private lesson with Jason. Jason started the lesson by putting a surfboard on grass and teaching her how to lie on on her stomach and transition to standing position. Within a couple of minutes they were in the water. Jason showed my daughter how to paddle out on the board as he swam... More

Poipu Beach Surf School was a great place to get a basic intro to surfing. The surf on the south side of Kauai at Poipu Beach was very tame, so non-intimidating for beginners. My instructor (Alex) seemed genuinely passionate about his job, offered some good insider tips and enthusiastically cheered everyone on. I was hoping for a little more challenge... More

We had 1 adult and one 8 yr. old for a 8am surf lesson. We ended up being the only 2 in the class. The instruction was easy to follow and was relatively quick, so we spent over an hour on the water. My 8 yr. old was up and riding waves after only 3 attempts. The waves are mostly... More

Well last year my wife and i had a blast, so we came back for more fun this year at the stand up paddle surf school. This time we had a late evening lesson and we had a Blast at that little harbor that they took us to. We paddled around the beautiful calm waters of this lovely bay then,... More

One of our favorite experiences thus far in Hawaii. My wife and I went for surf lessons and our instructor Alex was the man - laid back but instructive, funny, and genuinely happy when we caught a wave! Would recommend this in a heart beat - beach and location are gorgeous also. Thanks for the amazing memory!

Our group of 4 adults and two kids (ages 9 &12) had such a fun day surfing. As first time surfers, every one of us were riding the waves by the end of the lesson! The kids were strong swimmers which is a plus for this activity. Our instructors, Alex & Eli were easy-going and helped us feel confident throughout... More
