Water sports on Kauai are very popular and surfing is one of them. One of the best aspects of surfing is that you can participate or watch — either way, everyone has a great time. Kauai’s four regions, North, South, East, and West, all offer incredible surfing experiences. Favorite spots for surfing on Kauai include Salt Pond, Allerton’s, Kukuiula Harbor, Davidsons at Kekaha, Pakalas, Poipu Beach, Lawai Beach (also called P.K.s, Centers, and Acid Drop), Shipwrecks Beach, Nawiliwili Harbor, Hanalei Bay, and Tunnels Beach.
Whether watching the waves from the shore or riding them, surfing on Kauai is a memorable experience. Surfers love the exhilaration as powerful waves provide the greatest of thrills. Always check for a report on weather and tide conditions — make water safety your first priority and you’re ensured a grand time.
