Kauai surf lessons are highly advisable for anyone new to the sport. In fact, given the rigorous conditions on the island, anyone new to surfing in Kauai in particular should begin by touching base with an instructor. This person can not only provide instruction on technique, but can give pointers as to which are the safest spots to ride.

Like the other islands, Kauai boasts big, beautiful waves. Although always a pleasure to watch from land, they can present a formidable challenge to the aspiring surfer. Any remotely cautious person will begin with basic Kauai surf lessons.

What You'll Learn in Kauai Surf Lessons
Depending on your goals, surf lessons can teach many different things. For those looking for a one-shot deal, the goal will be simply to help you paddle out and then push to a stand when told to do so. More advanced surfers will learn to recognize the timing of sets and to discriminate well-formed waves from those that should be allowed to roll by.

Standing on a surfboard is not as easy as it might seem. Especially if you are interested in the flashy short boards that are used for eye-catching tricks, you can expect it to take a while before you are able to stand for any real amount of time. Long boards are, of course, much easier. Use your Kauai surf lessons to figure out which option is right for you.
