Private Surf Lessons in Hanalei

Learn to surf with professional surfers at the world famous Hanalei Bay. We have daily private lessons for singles, couples, and families. All sessions are private party bookings which means you will receive superior attention as you learn first hand from instructors who come from a lifetime of surfing and are passionate about sharing their knowledge and technique with you in each lesson.

What to Expect

Hanalei Bay on Kauaʻiʻs 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 Kauaʻi has been the highlight of their vacation. We have a staff that includes professional surfers as well as very experienced Kauai local watermen who have dedicated their lives to ocean knowledge.

We will start the lesson with an informative beach lesson where we will go over the basics of balance and form while riding the waves. During this time we will participate in a 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 out into the water for your surf session. Surfing lessons are available year round and, depending on ocean conditions, will take place at either Hanalei Bay or Kahili beach near Kilauea.
