There’s a specific joy that comes along with the feeling of riding a wave, where you momentarily feel as if you’re one with the ocean as it surges and rolls beneath you. By booking a surfing lesson in Maui, you’ll learn with the help of a local instructor how to experience the thrill for yourself, with the sun on your shoulders, the salt in your hair, and the warm water all around you.

You’ll be given a stable soft-top board that is wide and perfect for learning, and paddle out at the popular Kihei spot that’s known locally as 'The Cove.' You’ll be given a rash guard and neoprene booties to protect your skin and your feet, and after a safety briefing on shore where you’ll learn about techniques and etiquette, you’ll head towards the waves for the chance to experience the excitement of surfing on Maui. 

For this 2-hour lesson, all of the necessary equipment is provided to get you up and riding, and just bring along sunscreen, a sense of adventure and perhaps a camera to capture the moment.

Fantastic!! The guys had us up and surfing in no time. Keoki was super patient and attentive to each participant, watching each person and giving tips to ensure our success. The guys were friendly and kind from beginning to end….local guys that were all about the Aloha spirit! I highly recommend them and I will be booking with them again when in Maui.

Definitely worth it, both time and money. So glad to have done it. Spent roughly 10 minutes on land, rest of the time was spent catching waves in the water. Totally cool. Photographer was out there capturing photos available for purchase after.

We had the best possible instructor, very experienced, and encouraging. We had a perfect amount of time to go over basic instructions and had many opportunities to catch a wave. Both my daughter and I leaned how to catch a way and stand up independently. They also took professional photos of us which turned out amazing. We had a lot of fun!

My daughter (16) thoroughly enjoyed the experience; her instructor, Eli, was kind and helpful, but she also went on about all the sea turtles out there. I just wish I would’ve done it as well.

Thanks for taking the time to review us. Surfing is a fun time and kids especially enjoy as it's much easier for them to learn and pick it up. For turtles, best way to enjoy is with a kayak snorkel tour I. Makena Bay. Put that on your list on your next visit. Mahalo
