Owner description: Hawaii Lifeguard Surf Instructors are born and raised in the islands. Who better to visit when in Kona but the Natives! Surf with actual Hawaiian Lifeguards, take a Kayak Tour or learn how to Stand Up Paddle. HLSI is a family owned and operated Big Island Surf School. Come surf with our OHANA! Located in the Heart of Kailua-Kona On Ali'i Drive. South of mile marker 1. Situated between the Kona Reef Resort and Ali'i Cove. Across the street from Honls Beach Park (Wai'aha Bay).

My boys are 14 and 17 and this was their first trip to the Big Island and swimming in an ocean as we live in Colorado. I never imagined they would try surfing on this trip. But no.....they had their hearts set on it. I felt totally comfortable with Hawaii Lifeguard Surf Instructors. The dry land orientation was instructive and Kalani made the experience fun, safe, and successful. They were so excited after their one hour lesson, we signed them up the next day for a 2-hour one. It was the highlight of their trip!

My daughter has had lessons for HLSI for 2 years in a row. She is 11 years old and was booked both times in private, 1 on 1 classes for 1.5hrs. She had so much fun, she can't wait to back and do it again next all day! HLSI makes the learning experience very simple and accomodating. Any type a fear a child or adult has about doing lessons is gone when get in the presence of these awesome instructors. Mahalo HLSI team for the memories of a lifetime, especially Tiffany and Uncle K.
