Embrace your Aloha spirit and come to Santa Monica for your surfing lesson with Kapowui Surf Club. These guys are conveniently located on the beach parking lot. Just look for a bright VW Bus and a bunch of surf boards. All instructors are experienced surfers that live and dream surfing. They are excited to share their culture with you and they know how to teach. You will catch your first wave on the very first lesson and will never be able to stop loving it! This is a real escape from busy LA to a very chill beach vibe with all the Kapowui team. Also, there is a MEGALODON TOUR available every Sunday 7-8:30 AM. It's basically a huge surfboard for up to 10 adults where everybody paddles the board and you all surf big waves on it! Super fun adventure!

Surfing with Kapowui was a blast. My instructor, Claudio, gave through instructions and was extremely well taught. Thanks to him, I was able to successfully catch a ton of waves and get an amazing workout even though it was just my third time surfing! The business is extremely well run and I was impressed that when I indicated that I was deaf and wouldn’t be able to hear in the water that they came up with signs for in water for communication and then proceeded to educate all of the other instructors on procedures with dealing with deaf customer. Even though I’m on the other coast, I will most certainly be returning! 6 out of 5 stars and highly recommend!
Liam was awesome!!! Came from South Africa to the states to teach, and did a wonderful job. This was a great experience front to back. He was very professional and excited throughout the lesson. Super encouraging and worked hard to make it fun and a great time. Recommend two hours for beginners to get fully oriented and have success. The conditions were beautiful and not overcrowded. Kapowui gave us great memories for a first time out. Highlight of the vacation!
Family of 3 visiting from NC that had never surfed before and we all got up on almost every wave. Claudio was the best instructor! We can’t wait to go back to Santa Monica to do it again! Thank you for making our last day in California one to remember! 🤙
Fantastic first surf lessons for my two nephews, age 9 and 12. After the 30 minute beach lesson they both were up for their first wave already and had the best time. Their instructor, Liam went the extra mile to get them into as many waves as possible. They are already planning their future lives as professional surfers… 🏄♂️🏄♂️🌊
Ryan was INCREDIBLE! Feel so grateful to have had him as our instructor. Came with a few girlfriends for our first surf lesson and had the absolute best time. We all stood up and had a blast. 10/10 request Ryan. 🤍 Thanks to the Whole Kapowui team, such a great experience!
