Learning to surf in the warm waters of Kauai is ideal.

Surfing was a sport of the ancient Hawaiians and due in large part to the popularity of surf lessons on Kauai offered by a variety of Kauai surf schools it even more popular on Kauai today. Kauai's abundant coastline offers big waves for surfing veterans and Kauai surfing spots suitable for beginners

It is believed that the sport of surfing has been around for thousands of years as practiced by the Western Polynesians. Perhaps the ancient fisherman of those times used the waves to carry them back to shore with their catch. At some point however the art of surfing for the pure pleasure of it came about and the golden heyday of surfing was practiced on these very shores of Kauai in the years following the 4th century AD which was believed to be the timing of the first islanders to arrive from Polynesia. From that point forward surfing became a highly specialized Hawaiian sport and indeed the best surf breaks on Kauai were reserved for the "Alii" class and Kauai surfing became the "sport of kings".

Today Kauai surfers can be found riding various surf breaks with various degrees of difficulty throughout Kauai.
  • Some of Kauai's surf breaks can be enormous as the winter swells break on the northern sides of the island.

  • There are also waves that are consistently suitable to learn to surf and the many Kauai surfing schools offer surfing lessons to the uninitiated.

Many Hawaii surfing schools will boast that anyone can be riding the surf in just one lesson and that indeed, was the case when my son Jake tried surfing the first time. This, however, was not my experience on my first surfing adventure. I had a great time, but I was still "wave surfing illiterate" after my first attempts. Just recently on a visit to Kauai however, I gave surfing another try and indeed I was able to stand up three or four times during my two-hour surf lesson.

Kauai has many surfing schools and there is one that will suit your experience-level just perfectly. Some of Kauai's surf instructors have been on the professional surfing tour circuit and are great surf instructors providing surfing lessons on Kauai for both beginners and advanced surfers.

Kauai Stand-up paddle-surfing is probably the fastest growing of all the "action sports" on Kauai.
  • Stand-up paddle surfing is fun and is easy to learn. It is also one of the very best ways to get into and stay in shape. It works the core of the body as well as the arms and legs and is a great way to exercise.

Norwegian Cruise Line -Pride of America Cruise Ship: Surfing Lessons on Kauai will not pick you up at the cruise ship pier. Your best bet is to either arrange for a taxi to take you to and from the departure location or to have Tom Barefoot's Tours arrange for a rent-a-car shuttle to pick you up at the cruise ship pier. The best timing for most of these Kauai Surfing Tours is going to be on the Thursday or Friday of your cruise schedule.

Look for this symbol in the tour descriptions below to indicate if it is Pride of America compatible.
