One of the most professional surfing schools on the island is the Kauai Surf School. These instructions are usually held in the Poipu area in surf that is usually fairly small but easy to learn on. Lessons taught by the Kauai Surf School are generally small and personalized with a small instructor to student ratio. Each lesson is two-hours in length and the first hour is spent on dry land going over the skills that are necessary for you to know in order to be able to stand up in the water. The second hour is actually spent in the water and your instructor will be right there with you giving you tips and encouraging you in the manner of a varsity coach. The results of these lessons are favorable to say the least as almost everyone will be able to stand before lessons end. In addition to just beginner surfing instruction, advance surfing instruction is available for those that want to develop beyond the basic skills.
Private, personalized surf lessons will give you much more attention from the instructor than you would have with a group lesson. The first half hour is a dry land lesson, followed by a half hour water lesson and then an hour of catching waves with the instructor.
Classes are small and personalized. There is a half hour dry land lesson, half hour water lesson and 1 hour catching waves with an instructor. Children 4 to 9 years old are able to take this lesson with their parent or guardian of at least 18 years of age and they must be in the water with them at all times.
