Full description
When in Hawaii, do as the Hawaiians do and learn to surf! With a private, 2-hour surf lesson at Kona's Kahaluu Bay Surf and Sea, learn how to surf safely and effectively under the guidance of an instructor who will teach you the proper skills whether you are a beginner or already have experience.   After being outfitted with reef booties and rash guards, you'll be taught how to paddle and pop up on land. You will also be given important surfing etiquette and learn how to wipe out properly. Once you're comfortable with getting to your feet on land, it’s off to the water to practice your skills on the long rolling waves of Kahaluu Bay.  During the entire surf lesson, your surf instructor will help you catch waves by letting you know where to be, when to paddle, and when to pop up. You will be given a little push to ensure that you catch every wave you paddle for. For the more advanced surfers, instructors will offer advice on how to turn and catch larger waves.
