Surfing on the Big Island

By Team

Hawaii Island, the Big Isle, with its warm, clear waters and year-round surf attracts an endless stream of surfers.

Learning how to surf is a rewarding adventure. There are lessons, camps, and clinics available for those who want to try. Students generally begin their training riding soft long boards and are introduced to the necessary surfing fundamentals, safety, and ocean-awareness in a land lesson before entering the small surf to give it a try.

Kahaluʻu Beach Park is a well-used surf spot, and Honoliʻi Point near Hilo is also a popular site. With a surf lesson, you may be able to ride the waves at Honokohau National Park.
