We had a great time learning to surf. This is a definite must-do when in Kauai. The instructors are really friendly and extremely patient. It was tons of fun.

I took two group lessons here, one with Alan and one with Kyle; my father-in-law took a group with Kyle; and my daughter and nephews took a group kids' lesson with Alan.
These guys are great, super patient, and with lots of good insight on how to improve from wave to wave. Great with the kids - my daughter (6) was a total newbie but is now a full on grommet. Alan told her "you're a surfer now!" and she believes it! One of my nephews (5) was also new - and a weak swimmer - but he did great and really enjoyed himself. My other nephew (7) has been surfing for about a year but said he learned a bunch and had a wonderful time.
My father-in-law did well too and got up on a few waves.
For me, I'd taken a private at Huntington Beach that was fine, but the waves here are a lot more forgiving. At Kauai Surf School I felt great, learned a new way to stand, and even got up a couple of times as well. Now I know what it means to be stoked. :)
A great experience and one I'd strongly recommend to anyone who's thinking about surfing around Poipu.

Kyle was the instructor for our girls. They took a group of four lesson. Kyle was very helpful and encouraging. They were surfing in no time at all. He was the perfect teacher for our daughters. They couldn't wait to go out and shred again!

Great experience! I went with my wife, her brother and sister-in-law. Be sure to ask for Kyle. He's super helpful and gives simple to follow instructions. Board rental and nice rash guard to wear during the lesson were included in the price. Incredible experience! This was well worth the price. P. S. Book online and get a free hat! The camo one is awesome.

My husband and I had never surfed before, but always wanted to. This was the perfect introductory lesson! They don't book more than 4 people at a time which made it really personalized. We didn't spend much time on the shore at all, before we jumped right in and started surfing! Our instructor was great and shared a ton of knowledge.I would recommend going as early in the morning as possible to avoid it getting too crowded. We booked the 8 a.m. class, which was perfect. It rained on us a bit during the lesson, but that almost made it more fun... surfing in Kauai in the rain... how cool is that? Definitely recommend trying this out!

We were lucky enough to snag a lesson with Kyle. He was patient, helpful and extremely nice. We weren't sure how having three of us to one instructor was going to work out, but Kyle spend one on one time with all of us while keeping an eye on everyone. Couldn't have been better. We had great waves, great weather, and a great teacher.
