About Hanalei Bay

Hanalei Bay on Kauaʻiʻs north shore is the ideal place in the world to learn to surf with perfect waves and breathtaking scenery. The open ocean swells form into calm waves breaking over a sand bottom, making lessons safe and fun for everyone. Many visitors to Hawaii say that learning to surf on Kauaʻi has been the highlight of their vacation. We have a staff that includes professional surfers as well as very experienced Kaua'i local rippers!
