Learn to surf at Hanalei Bay with instruction from the professionals of Hawaiian Surfing Adventures. Hanalei surf lessons last for 1.5 hours; the first 30 minutes or so is spent watching the ocean, taking about ocean safety, and teaching proper positioning on the board. Once you learn how to stand up on the board when you are on the beach, you’ll take your board out to the ocean to apply your newly learned skills. Instructors will help you catch a wave and give further insight while on the water for the next hour. After a lesson, you may rent a board if you’d like more time out on the water.

Children do great in lessons, but they should be able to swim and feel comfortable in the ocean. It is recommended that children under 12 have a parent accompany them on a group lesson. If no parent wants to participate in a group lesson we recommend that you sign up a single child in a private lesson or if you have two or three chidren that you sign them up for a semi-private lesson.

Activity Tips

Kevin Ditamore – Owner / Manager

Learning to surf is surprisingly easy, but you can’t just grab a board and head out on your own and expect successful results. One basic lesson to summarize board balance, paddling, and standing technique is essential. These guys guarantee that you will stand up during your first lesson!

If you’re looking for a calmer experience than surfing, and you don’t want to rely on waves, check out Stand Up Paddleboarding lessons!
