First, there is Hanalei Surf School. Taught by professionals, you can have fun and learn to surf all in one session! Enjoy perfect waves and beautiful scenery while you learn to surf, while getting taught by local pros. They have fine-tuned their teaching techniques and guarantee you will learn to surf. To come prepared, make sure to wear bathing suits and rash guards if you have them to prevent any rashes from the surfboard. Also make sure you stay hydrated throughout the day and wear reef-safe sunscreen.

Next, you can try surf lessons with Titus Kinimaka’s Hawaiian School of Surfing. Enjoy a surf lesson on the beautiful beach with no rocks, reef, or coral to worry about. The waves are very beginner friendly as they only go up to waist or chest high. The surfboards used here have a soft top, and they will also provide rash guards for everyone to use too!

Another option you can try for surf lessons is Hawaiian Surfing Adventures. They have a unique system for surfing instruction that has proved to be very successful! They also use soft top surfboards for their lessons. The best times for surf lessons are usually in the mornings, when wave quality is best and there is less wind. The last lesson here is 1pm so that kids getting out of school can enjoy the beach as well.

Last one we are going to highlight is Kauai’s North Shore Surfing School. You can expect to be up and surfing on your first time, or improve your surfing if you are already experienced. Another option that offers soft top surfboards as well as rash guards that are included with the surfboard rentals.
