Great surf lessons!

My family took surfing lessons with this shop, and we couldn't have had a better time. All three of us including my 13-year-old son all were able to get up on our surf boards and... read more

As our first surfing experience, Hoku Sports was a wonderful entry point. John was a lovely and kind instructor who effectively taught us basic techniques and was flexible with our skill set. I really appreciate Greg and his warm and considerate customer service skills.

My family took surfing lessons with this shop, and we couldn't have had a better time. All three of us including my 13-year-old son all were able to get up on our surf boards and ride the wave all the way into the beach. The instructions were really clear and informative and we got lots of rides during the 90-minute... More

We had such a great time kayaking in the morning. It rained and we just went to get cover underneath the trees on shore. It stopped and we just had a blast. Later that day we snorked and saw so many different fish that I can't remember. The instructors and gear were top notch. Triple Forks Hunting

My kids (ages 17 & 14) took surf lessons from Hoku Water sports in Poipu. The owner, Greg was very nice and helpful. The instructor, Ziggy, was great with the kids. The lessons take place in front of the Kiahuna Plantation and it is a perfect spot to learn. After some brief instruction on land, the instructors stand in the... More

Last week my kids took their first surfing lesson while I watched from the shore and took pictures. The conditions were less than ideal for novices (high tide, strong current parallel to the shore, challenging waves, middle of the day heat) but their instructor (Ziggy) was patient and focused on safety. Greg (the owner) was very friendly and knowledgeable. All... More

From the Koakea, you can get their service and they come to the hotel to help your prep, then onto the Poipu Beach for the lesson. We did 2 hours of stand-up paddle boarding, neither I, nor my wife are in great shape and the instructor was cautious to make us go at our speed. We got to stand on... More

Chris, our instructor was amazing! We stayed at the Koa Kea so we were right by their office but I would seek them out even if we were not staying there. They have a great location near Poipu Beach for surf lessons and reasonably priced rentals of any water activity you can imagine. We did not learn about their outrigger... More

There are a number of surfing schools on Kaua'i and several of them are terrific. But as far as I know, there is only one company that offers outrigger canoe surfing: Hoku Water Sports. They have a web site and an inconspicuous yellow brochure available at the airport in the carousels of pamphlets advertising for your time and money. Canoe... More
