Kids Surf Lessons in Poipu

Give your kids the thrill and excitement of learning how to surf in the gentle waves of Poipu during our 1 hour Private Surf Lesson for Kids. We offer surfing lessons year round in Poipu on the sunny and warm South Side of Kauai.

Our instructors teach hundreds of children to surf every year. The reward of seeing your kids up and riding, and sharing the Aloha Spirit with them, is the reason why we began our surf school many years ago.

Poipu Beach Surf School is owned and operated by professional waterman and former pro bodyboarder Doug Muraoka. Poipu Beach Surf School is committed to providing each of its guests with a safe, fun, friendly surfing experience.

Doug and his expert staff are all experienced watermen who have been surfing and teaching for years. For your added ocean safety, an official county of Kauai lifeguard station is located right at Poipu Beach in Kauai and is considered amongst the safest beaches in Hawaii. Where we teach our lessons is perfect for beginner surfers with beginner-friendly waves.

Important Requirements: Children must know how to swim in order to participate in our Kids Surf Lessons on Kauai.

What to Expect

Recommended for Kids ages 6-9, our surf lessons take place at the Sheraton Beach in Poipu. Instructors stay with the child surfers for the full lesson, never leaving them alone in the ocean. Our instructors are dedicated to making safety our number one priority!

Instructors start out with a brief instructional video at the Nukumoi Surf Shop (2100 Hoone Rd. in Koloa), educating surfers about the surfboard, how to paddle the board, how to stand up, and closing with ocean safety tips. The rest of the lesson is spent in the water catching waves.

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your lesson to begin the check in process. Printed vouchers are not required. Upon check-in, please provide name on reservation or booking number.

Transportation to the surf shop and beach is not included. After meeting up in surf shop, all guests will need their own transportation to the beach for the lesson. After initial meet up, guests will follow the instructor down the road, to the beach that we use for instruction (behind Kiahuna Plantation).

Kids 1-Hour Semi-Private

Our Semi-private one hour lesson just for kids is our most popular option! We teach surfing lessons to siblings, friends, cousins, and other extended family regularly. The bond created between the children and the ocean will have a positive impact that will last a lifetime.

You children will receive the full attention of the instructor on just the kids, making sure they are learning technique, understanding the ocean, and of course having fun!

Kids 1-Hour Private Surf Lessons

We designed our kids private lesson specifically for those who are learning solo or want that extra special attention from our instructors. The One-on-one with an instructor gives the kids more hands-on time, which guarantees more waves, more fun, and a greater experience!
