Surfing lessons

A visit to Maui without trying surfing would be like going to Paris and not seeing the Eiffel Tower, or going to Aspen and not skiing! Warm water, reliable surf, beautiful beaches combined with our patient and experienced coaches make this the perfect place to give surfing a try. Catch your first wave on Maui, but be warned – surfing is a lifetime passion – it may change your life!

We offer a few options for your surfing lessons.

For first-time surfers we offer a very affordable value group lesson in Kihei for $75. Group lessons are a maximum of 6 students per instructor. Rash guard and booties are included. Please try to arrive 15-30 minutes early to meet your guide and get outfitted.

For surfers with some experience you may find a better value with a private lesson at a location suited to your skills and goals. Private lessons will be customized to your skills and goals. Similarly, experienced surfers often prefer to rent their own boards from the extensive fleet of quality boards so that they can continue surfing (and have the racks to transport it!) after the lesson is complete. Please call us to discuss what is best for you.

Reservation and cancellation policies

All lessons are by appointment. We will take reservations the day of the lesson or up to a year in advance. All lessons are subject to weather conditions, of course. If the weather is not suitable for your lesson, it will be postponed until conditions are right for your lesson. There is no charge for lessons canceled due to bad weather. Reservations are recommended, especially if you request a specific instructor.

To make a reservation we will ask for credit card details (number, expiration date and security code) to confirm your instructor’s time. We generally do not charge at the time of reservation because all lessons are subject to weather. Please provide 48 hours to cancel or change for any reason to avoid a late cancel charge. Late cancels are subject to full charge unless we can rebook the instructor’s time. Of course if the weather doesn’t cooperate, and we are forced to cancel, then there is no charge to you for any lesson time that we cannot deliver.
