Our surf safari is semi-private for up to 4 people (*see notes) and includes pre-surf warm-up yoga, personalized surf coaching, and post-surf recovery yoga class. This experience is designed for beginner to intermediate surfers with some surfing experience. We'll kick off our session with a surf-check at Hanalei Bay and a fresh local coconut. Next we'll hit the beach for a 15-min "Pre-Surf" Yoga warm-up with the beautiful view of the waves, led by Guri, to prepare your body for optimum surfing performance and mind-body presence. Caleb will coach you depending on your skill level answering any questions regarding water safety, board position, paddling skills, riding tips, wave reading, ocean awareness, etc. We'll be in the water for 1.5-2 hours, with plenty of time to catch as many waves as you want with individualized instruction for each guest. After surf, we'll have a healthy picnic lunch together followed by some free time to relax and digest. In the afternoon we'll meet at the yoga studio for our 1.5 hour post-surf yoga class, including recovery/restorative postures, breathe work and guided meditation/relaxation.

We are a surfing couple who together offer an ideal blend of expertise with surfing and yoga instruction! Caleb was born and raised on the Big Island of Hawai'i with a lifelong passion and knowledge of the ocean. A soul-surfer and true water-man, he began formally teaching surfing in 2014 when he was sought out by a pro-instructor for his natural talent of helping others out in the water. Guri was raised a skier and learned to surf at the age of 16 when she moved to Maui. Her passions of yoga & surfing led her to teach. She is a 200hr RYT, as well as a Yoga for Surfers® Certified Instructor.
Kauai's Northshore is famous for its epic surf, pristine waters, and beautiful waves for all levels of surfing! We will select our surf spot depending on the swell/weather conditions and your experience level/desires. We will favor the Northshore, however we may venture east or south for the waves! Our post-surf yoga class will be scheduled at a local yoga studio space in Kilauea.
* If your party is larger than 4 people, please message us and we will do our best to accommodate you. If you have small children who won't surf, Guri may be available to supervise them on the beach.
