Surfing Lessons

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 surf adventures. Kona Boys is proud to work with our friends, Bear of “Surfer Bear Hawaii”, and Ossian of FBI Surf School, to provide our customers with the best surf lesson experience available on the island.

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. For reservations, please call 808.328.1234.

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