Lani means heavenly in Hawaiian. Lani Surf originated here in the Pacific ocean, our backyard, because of the love we have for surfing. There is no better form of connecting with nature than riding waves, being in the ocean, and living everything surrounding this healthy lifestyle. Thankfully this stoke with surfing is something part of our lives, our specialty, and we're excited to share this experience with aloha.
Over here in the Hawaiian islands surfing is a very exalted sport. It was part of past ancient culture that riding waves was an activity reserved only for the ali'i or those of royal blood such as kings and queens. We are privileged today to have such a healthy fun passion thats part of our way of living. We must express the highest form of gratitude to the mana, all surrounding energy and power, in this heavenly place. We are happy surfing its good for the soul!
Kailani Jabour Lani Surf owner arrived on Oahu in 1989 during his first year of life. Influenced by a father whom he watched chase big hollow waves around the world and his environment. The north shore's wave rich coast line is a surfers dream.
High school years involved dad taking Kailani and his brother Kiron to contests all around the Hawaiian islands where they competed in events and made life long friendships. His brother continued competing afterwards in the world qualifying series where he won contests at Puerto Escondido in Mexico and at home in Sunset beach Hawaii.
All the wave searching missions around the world bring forth a lot of learning. It can sometimes take a lot of energy but it's always worth the experience. You see cultures, the planet, meet new people and sometimes hear stories of the past while seeing more of humanity. Doing this with proper mind-set can bring a stronger sense of appreciation for everything and cause you to form a bigger connection with nature. Guided by many mentor influences has taken Lani Surf owner to some of the highest level surfing corners of the world hunting ocean swells to ride their energy. Places like home in Hawaii at Pipeline, Indonesia and Tahiti hold some of his most profound memories.
Surfing can be something that keeps you healthy and happy all around with thoughts of getting up for your next ride or going past the next bend to find your perfect wave. With a waterman's ocean skills and knowledge Kailani or another highly qualified chosen instructor will assess the surf conditions of your lesson's specific day to then make a decision of where to take you out surfing ensuring your experience is an unforgettable fun day to remember!
During the lesson we choose where to surf depending on surf conditions of specific day. Puena Point is a dream wave for any beginner offering super fun small rides even in the winter. If it gets too small, which does happen usually sometimes in the summer, we take a look at some other spots down the road like Laniakea and Chuns Reef .
