Hanalei Bay on Kauai's north shore is the most ideal place in the world to learn to surf with perfect waves and breathtaking scenery. The open ocean swells form into calm waves breaking over a sand bottom, making lessons safe and fun for everyone. Many visitors to Hawaii say that learning to surf on Kauai has been the highlight of their vacation. We have a staff that includes professional surfers as well as very experienced Kauai local rippers!

2 hour lessons include a beach practice and warm up practice familiarizing you with safety, how to paddle and maneuver your board, stand up and turn the surfboard while riding waves, how to read lineups and ocean currents,  plus a few considerations about proper surf etiquette. Then off into the water for the 1 1/2 hour surf session. Surfing lessons are available year round at either Hanalei Bay or Kahili beach near Kilauea depending on ocean conditions. 

Document your session with the board mounted GoPro HD Hero video/ still camera

How about getting the ride of your life and capturing it on HD video? With the addition of a lightweight GoPro camera mounted on your board you will not only be able to capture the thrilling experience of riding waves but view and share your session with family and friends. The GoPro camera?s HD quality is second to none and you will get great clips of the waves you ride plus unforgettable backdrop shots of the beautiful island scenery while you surf.

Many of you returning visitors will remember old Kauai Surf Hotel, the first hotel to open on Kauai at KALAPAKI BEACH in the late 1950s ... Since then, the Beach Boys have been teaching visitors and locals how to best enjoy what the ocean has to offer. These are professional water men, accomplished surfers, sailors and canoe handlers who make a living doing what they are best at and who are willing to share their knowledge of the ocean with a true spirit of ALOHA.

You will love their instructors Marlo, Summer, Charlie, & Aaron :)... little Christian is an instructor too.
He teaches the little ones--- he's a Jr. Beach Boy :)

The bay fronting KALAPAKI BEACH offers some of the safest waters in the State of Hawaii.  The conditions here are well suited for a wide array of Water Sports and Activities such as: Surfing, Kayaking, Snorkeling, Sailing and Canoe Paddling.
