The SIY Studio is located on the South Shore, five minutes from the ocean in Poipu. Kauai is an amazing island for all kinds of activities because everything is so accessible. Within an hour, you can drive from the south shore to the north shore and check surf spots along the way. There are great waves all year long and for all surfing abilities.
From April-September, the south swells will hit the west, south, and east shores of Kauai. During this time of year, we'll generally find the best waves here close to the Studio. In the winter months, October-April, the North Shore is the place to be. When you surf with us, we know the best place for the day's conditions and your skill level.

Rochelle Ballard, 2012 ISA World Master’s Champion, is now a retired Professional World Class Surfer enjoying life on Kauai and running her Elite Retreat business with Surf Into Yoga. Growing up on Kauai with all of its vast ocean and mountain experiences, strong family bonds, Hawaiian Culture, and deep-rooted community values brings a unique balance to her world-renowned success as a professional surfer.
She was a National Amateur champion and became the first woman from Kauai to compete on the ASP World Championship Tour in the top 8 for most of her career.
In her 17 years of professional competition, she won several events and came runner-up to the World Title in 2004. She was the most voted popular surfer in the Surfer Magazine Poll 2000-2002. She still holds the record for two perfect 10 barrel rides in a single heat since 1997. She has been considered one of the best female barrel riders and known for pushing the level in women’s barrel riding and big wave surfing in the past two decades. She was also featured and surfed for the lead in the box office hit Blue Crush. Stepping away from the World Tour in 2007, her longevity as a world-class elite athlete is rooted in her commitment to quality, balance, and a healthy, sustainable lifestyle. She was always giving back with Aloha throughout her career in her community, the youth, the sport of surfing, and non-profit organizations.
She founded Surf Into Yoga in 2009, and compiled a team of her favorite watermen and wellness facilitators to join her in the effort to bring a well-balanced, mindful approach to her retreats.
