Great surf shop

My 22 year old son and I just spent a week in Kona and were able to go surfing in Kahalu'u Bay for a couple days. I also surfed there in 2013 with my girlfriend, which was our first time surfing so we took a lesson from Ben, the owner. He taught us well and we were able to have many good rides on the first day. We rented boards both times. The service was excellent and Ben and his employees took their time to explain things to us and outfit us well. I highly recommend this company to help you with your surfing needs.

First time surfers (my son and I) were so impressed with Chris (our instructor) and the entire crew running this shop! They are extremely knowledgeable, positive, helpful, friendly, and focused on making sure their customers have an absolutely unforgettable time learning how to surf. I can't say enough about how amazing these people are. Mahalo!!!!!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Great time! Thanks Chris!

My wife and I had an absolutely great time with Chris on the water for a semi-private lesson. Chris was very helpful and encouraging and we would definitely recommend Kahalu'u Bay (and Chris) to anyone interested in getting out and surfing while on the Big Island. Thanks again!

Hang Ten!

Ben was an awesome teacher. He was very positive, encouraging and made sure we were having fun. I highly recommend this location & thank you to the lady inside (never got her name) for tending to my wife's little scrape. They let me bring my GoPro so I could attempt to capture footage while trying to stand on a surf board for the first time. I couldn't imagine our vacation without this experience. Thanks guys! Mahalo!

(Please tell Ben, my video of my wife & I on that one wave together did not come out unfortunately.)

Deb and I were there today and Mike (the fellow from Catalina) was our instructor. It was a joyous and fun 2 hours, and we'd highly recommend this group to anyone who wants to learn more about surfing. Thank you everyone!

These guys are the best! Not only did our restless teen have a great lesson, but she also got a much needed break from the folks! It was the perfect t addition to our vacation. Thanks guys! We'll definately be back!

Greatest Surf Lessons Ever!

Much Aloha to Isha and Ben. I brought my 8 year old daughter there for a second lesson and we both left stoked and looking forward to our next session in the water. Isha and Ben created such an awesome atmosphere in the water with their students with positive reinforcement and lots of smiles. They also take time to teach their students how to surf, read the water and how to have fun. The Big Island is an amazing place and this was one of our best memories. Mahalo!

I had a great time!!

The surf teacher and the people who work there are all really friendly, the instructions are easy to follow. You're gonna be in a small group what is one of the advantage from this surfschool. Bacause of this small group they have time for you to teach how to surf. The first time i was there i catched my first wave right away and it was awsome. Since my first time i've been out there a few times more and it was fun every single time.

Best Surf Shop at Kahaluu-Kona

If you are looking to get wet, and not the naughty variety, Kahaluu Bay Surf & Sea is the place. They set us up with a wonderful day filled with surf lessons, snorkeling, and then a stand-up paddle board lesson. When you are there, be sure to ask for McKenna to take your photos...McKenna provided the best photo of me wipping out. I will never forget the memories...thanks Kalaluu Bay Surf & Sea.
