Bucket list nabbed - What an incredible experience! I’m a 42 year old who has dreamed of riding waves ever since seeing Point Break as a kid. I finally got the chance to learn the basics in Kauai. Kele was exactly the kind of instructor I hoped for. He made the process fun, memorable and safe. I was able to get up by my second wave and ride to shore. Hoku has big stable boards to help beginners like me. Awesome!

Great instructions and a great instructor - Great attitude and instructions from our teacher, Kele. We both were absolute newbies and by the end of our session, we were successfully riding waves all the way into shore. Well worth it!

Surfing Fun for Everyone - Surfing (or at least attempting to) quintessential when in Hawaii. I mean, you HAVE to try it. Even if you think you won't even make it up on the board. We checked in at a small hut on hotel grounds and the process was simple enough. This was truly a small-group as there was only one other couple there with us and, despite the fact that they had a little more experience than us, our instructor, Kele, never made us feel neglected or behind. In fact, he was positivity personified. Definitely the person any first timer would want out there with them, guiding and encouraging every step of the way!

Fantastic surf lesson - My 15 yo had a great time learning to surf with Kele. Friendly staff at the check in area. Poipu is a great area for first time surfers. My son is planning to go back today and rent a surfboard.
