Looking back, I am amazed at what grew out of a hobby. Hanalei Surf Company offers the largest, most comprehensive inventory of water sports equipment and beach accessories on Kauai. We love our customers, many who are, or have become, lifetime friends, and we are very grateful for the hard work of all of our business partners and employees throughout the years. Best of all, I can still rationalize that I've been working all day when I've been surfing the bay, talking story at the Pier and eating at the Village Snack Shop. You know, customer relations, research and development, maintaining the shop image… I work hard- just ask my staff!
