Surfing & SUP on Kauai
Surfing is a hailed water sport on Kaua‘i. Schools that teach you the basics are located around the island. Island Roots Aloha Surf School provides lessons at Hanalei Bay, Po‘ipū Beach Surf School gives classes on the sunny south shore and Kalapaki Beach Boys sets up shop at Kalapaki Bay in Līhu‘e. Most schools are in areas where waves are smaller and ideal for beginners. Only professional surfers with extensive backgrounds should even attempt getting in the water at any unsupervised locations.
A relatively new water sport that’s gained massive popularity on Kaua‘i in the past decade is stand-up paddle boarding (SUP). Many of the same places that teach surf lessons also have lessons for SUP, as well as boards available for rent. This activity can be difficult in a rocky ocean however, so if you’re seeking a more relaxing cruise, drift along one of the rivers with fantastic scenery like Hanalei.
