Surf's Up! And on Kaua'i there is always perfect surf to learn on. Kayak Kaua'i was founded by Caribbean surfers in quest of the perfect wave. They have surfed little "iki" waves to the biggest that the Hawaiian reefs have to offer.
From long board to short board surfing, small wave "hot doggin" to big wave riding, the water beasts of Kayak Kaua'i are more than happy to find an excuse to get in the water and teach their stuff.
You are guaranteed to stand during your first lesson. On our lessons we use safe, soft foam boards and emphasize safe surfing and wave dynamics.
For the more experienced, we have a selection of short and long epoxy/fiberglass boards. Each lesson takes about an hour and a half and includes board and instructor.
