Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your private Kona surf lesson begins at a surf shop near Kahalu’u Bay, where you’ll meet your expert local instructor and get properly fitted with a board. You’re also provided with a rash guard and booties to protect your feet and your skin, before strolling across to the nearby beach for an intro lesson in the sand. 

Before you even enter the waves, you’ll learn the proper technique for paddling and where to sit on the board, and how to keep the board from flipping while paddling out towards the waves. Once in the water, your instructor will be there right by your side to help push you into the waves, and provide instructions on how to get from your stomach up to your feet. 

Unless you’re already an experienced surfer, your instructor will help keep you safe from waves that either too large or powerful — focusing instead on the smaller waves where it’s easier to get up and ride. If you have some experience and are trying to hone your skills, the instructor can help provide some tips for maximizing your time on the wave. 

Since every lesson is tailored to your skill level, this Kona surf lesson is the perfect way to get out and enjoy the waves, and see why everyone is completely hooked on surfing in Hawaii.

I purchased this lesson for my son, and this was the highlight of his trip. Susie, his instructor, was wonderful and took her time teaching him. My son was up and surfing in no time!
