Can’t speak highly enough! Our surf instructor Corey was so personable and encouraging. He helped us successfully ride almost every wave we caught and cheered us on the whole time. Chris in the office was also so funny and helpful. We enjoyed our experience with Kahalu’u Bay

I booked a private surf lesson and it was great! As I’ve been surfing before, we could cut the introduction short and went directly into the water. My surf guide Ben gave me many helpful tips so that even the “waiting time” for the waves was useful. Everybody was really nice

My 8-year old granddaughter had a great time, getting up on a wave herself and then riding tandem with her instructor, Corey.

Mahalo for choosing our surf school for your granddaughters first surfing experience. She did an amazing job out there and seemed to really enjoy riding tandem with her instructor Corey. Bring her back anytime! Aloha from all of us at Kahaluu Bay Surf and Sea

The staff, equipment, and instruction at KBSS are all top notch. Everyone was super friendly and helpful in helping me get set up and out surfing. The best part was that while renting with KBSS I felt like I was a part of the Kahalu'u bay community, rather than just a tourist.
