About Kailua Sailboards & Kayaks Inc:

Kailua Sailboards & Kayaks was established in 1982, in downtown Kailua, during the early days of windsurfing. Hawaii was exploding with the sport and Kailua quickly earned its reputation as the early windsport capital. After several years, we did the obvious thing and moved down by the beach.

Over the years Kailua has also been discovered as one of the most popular kayaking and watersports destinations in the world and our shop has been there to provide the gear and the staff the whole way through.

We now boast the largest fleet of rental kayaks in Hawaii, with tandem and single kayaks as well as faster sea kayak and surf kayak models.

After more than 25 years of service, you can still find us here, just a block from Kailua Beach Park, handing out kayaks and windsurfing gear as well as our expert advice in the warm Kailua sun.

Perfect Moments in the Islands of Hawaii:

You know them when you see them, when you feel them, and especially, when you play a starring role in them those instants in time when something or someone stops you dead in your tracks and you're overcome with a sense of wonder and blessed with the joy of discovery.

We call them, perfect moments, though they tend to last a lifetime, and it probably won't surprise you to learn that you'll experience more of them in the Islands of Hawai'i than anywhere else on earth.

A perfect moment in Hawai'i can be standing on a charter boat off Hawai'i's Big Island, feeling the warm glow of a volcano as it pours new life into the sea; unearthing the secrets of the magical Napali Coast from a helicopter above the Island of Kaua'i, watching humpback whales frolic in the warm, tropical waters off the coast of Maui, swimming with dolphins in the clear waters of Lana'i's Manele Bay, riding a mule down the world's highest sea cliffs on the Island of Moloka'i; or riding gentle surf within sight of Waikiki's towering sand castles on the Island of O'ahu.

Moment to moment, a Hawaii vacation promises to release you from the ordinary and reintroduce you to the basic necessities of renewal: fresh air, warm sunshine, crystal water, good food, smiling faces, all the treasures of the earth in abundance, and the time to enjoy them all.
