Our family of 4- with two kids ages 7 and 11- had a blast learning to surf with Alan. He was patient and encouraging and great with our boys. We were all riding the waves in no time. Do it!

These guys are great! We booked an 8am tour on a Saturday morning. I would recommend booking the morning because there are less tourists/snorkelers/people in the water at that time and so they won't get in the way. I was able to ride twice all...More

Hi! We will be coming to Kauai in early March and have 3 teenagers who want to surf a lot on our trip. They have each surfed maybe 6x in the last 5 years but I would not consider them intermediate surfers. What part of the island will be most ideal for their skill level at that time of year? Thanks in advance!
