Pricing & Availability


Ancient Hawaiians invented surfing (believed to be on the Big Island), and it is as big a part of Hawaiian culture today as ever. Learn how to surf, or take your skills to the next level, with a 2-hour lesson at Kona’s Kahalu’u Beach Park, usually ideal for beginners with gentle waves and less current. You are guaranteed to stand and ride a wave, or your session is free! Surf board (beginner or advanced), surf shirt, and booties are provided. No experience necessary.
