About Hawaiian Style Surfing

Our Mission & Owner

Opened in 2015, Hawaiian Style Surfing has quickly become one of the leading surf companies on Kauai’s sunny South Shore. With a focus on small group size, in-depth shore training, and all local surf instructors, HSS is able to provide a truly unique surfing experience.

The owner, Josh Helmin, has been involved in the growth of ocean activity offerings throughout Kauai for the past 22 years having worked and owned businesses in Scuba Diving, Snorkeling, and Boat Tours. He understands that providing a safe yet exciting adventure truly comes down to just 3 things: learning in the right location, using the best equipment, and training with the finest instructors.
