I rented a board for several weeks and they gave me an excellent price, even a few free days if you rent long enough. I decided to rent from them because they have an excellent selection of boards, and even some higher end boards to rent as well, which made all the difference in the world. You can change out...

Aleric (goes by Al) is the best surf instructor in ST. He is worth every penny. I am a beg/intermediate and have surfed with him for over a week. The waves can get pretty big here and if you get stuck in the impact zone, you're going to want someone who knows what he/she is doing. Al is that person.... More

I was up on the board within a few waves and then later was catching them by myself. Great service and even better people. I highly recommend checking... More

Eric and the staff were super accomodating and made renting the boards easy. Be sure and have a suitable roof rack ( we did).

This is a real surf shop run by real surfers! This is the second time we were in the area and the second time we rented from Kena. Eric is helpful and friendly. He was even happy to chat to my husband when they paddled out next to each other. In addition, Kina has a great selection of swimsuits. I... More

Eric and Rachel are such good people and the shop has everything you need for rentals, purchases, surf reports and more. We rented boards for 10 days (they even gave us one day free) at the competitive price of $15/day (rash guards and a bar of wax thrown in for free) and they let us swap them out as frequently...

Kina has the best selection of boards in town period. This year I was going to get into town after they closed. I emailed Eric and he was going to drop my board at my hotel so I could surf at dawn the next day. that is incredibly good service. They are the best!!
