Big Island: Kona Private 2-Hour Surf Lesson

1. Big Island: Kona Private 2-Hour Surf Lesson

When in Hawaii, do as the Hawaiians do and learn to surf! With a private, 2-hour surf lesson at Kona's Kahaluu Bay Surf and Sea, learn how to surf safely and effectively under the guidance of an instructor who will teach you the proper skills whether you are a beginner or already have experience.   After being outfitted with reef booties and rash guards, you'll be taught how to paddle and pop up on land. You will also be given important surfing etiquette and learn how to wipe out properly. Once you're comfortable with getting to your feet on land, it’s off to the water to practice your skills on the long rolling waves of Kahaluu Bay.  During the entire surf lesson, your surf instructor will help you catch waves by letting you know where to be, when to paddle, and when to pop up. You will be given a little push to ensure that you catch every wave you paddle for. For the more advanced surfers, instructors will offer advice on how to turn and catch larger waves.

My 3 daughters had a surf lesson and it was fantastic! The instructors were so nice and did a great job of teaching them the basics before they got into the water. The instructors were also very good at helping them catch a wave! Very professional. I would highly recommend!

This was a really great experience! Steve, Max and Santi were great! Steve really took the time to explain the basics and safety while we were still on land so that we felt very comfortable once we were out on the water. So happy I was able to catch some waves!!!

Gentle waves, massive board and Santi was a great instructor. He was super patient and encouraging. It was awesome!

So much fun! Rob our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful with the lesson. Great introduction for beginners!

Excellent staff! Thanks again for a terrific experience
