Surf’s Up

Hawaii is home to surfing and the perfect place to paddle out for your first time. Kona Boys offers group and private lessons as well as custom packages for multiple day lessons or Big Island surf adventures.


As with all water sports, safety comes first so all lessons begin with an onshore orientation covering equipment, ocean awareness, etiquette, and fundamentals. Once in the water we’ll take time practicing basic skills such as paddling, turning, and sitting on the board to assure that you have a level of control before we hit the surf.

Lessons include: instructors, surfboards, booties and rash guards.

We do recommend making reservations in advance, and for the best experience, it is good to have some flexibility so that we can time the lessons to optimize conditions.

If you are interested in taking a series of lessons, or have a large group please call us to make arrangements.

For reservations, please call 808.328.1234.
