You never forget your first wave, as surfing enthusiasts in Hawaii are prone to say, so make sure your first wave is a good one with a small-group surf lesson on the Big Island. This 2-hour Kona surf lesson starts with the basics, like surfing safety, etiquette and how to paddle and pop up on the board. Then take to the water to practice your newfound skills on the waves of Kahalu'u Bay! A knowledgeable surfing instructor will be in the water with you, telling you when to paddle and when to pop up. It’s a Hawaiian experience everyone should try at least once!

I really enjoyed the experience. The instructors were great! 3 students per instructor. I was nervous at first but there was nothing to worry about. They seem to love what they do. Make sure you wear ENOUGH sunscreen!

Booked 2 15 year old boys and 2 13 year old girls for this. They absolutely loved it!! The staff is the BEST!!!!! Wonderful location in Kona adjacent to a great beach for snorkeling afterwards. This was a highlight of our 10 days on the islands of Hawaii
