HST Windsurfing & Kitesurfing School is Maui’s oldest and largest water sports school. In your windsurfing, kitesurfing, or stand up paddle lesson, your experienced instructor will be right there with you, to provide you with greater confidence and a faster learning experience.
From beginner to expert, we offer windsurfing lessons for every skill level. In entry level lessons, you quickly learn fundamental skills on big, stable school boards with small sails. You’ll sail out and back in your first lesson, learning to steer the board, turn around, and control the power in your sail. As you progress, you learn to tack, jibe, and sail upwind. You learn intermediate level shortboard sailing skills in our waterstarting, and harness, footstrap and stance lessons. Advanced sailors can learn to jibe or tack a shortboard, wave sail, loop, or freestyle.
HST Windsurfing & Kitesurfing School is now setting the standard for Maui kitesurfing lessons. Take our introductory “Discover Kitesurfing” lesson to get a taste of this exciting sport, or master the fundamental skills in our Three Day Learn-to-Rip Course. You learn to set up, launch, fly and land your kite safely, as well as waterstarting and using a harness. Short lines help keep the kite controllable, and your instructor will be with you on the water to talk you through new moves and give on-the-spot feedback.
Wing Foil lessons
Wing Foiling is taking the world by storm! The freedom of the hand-held, light weight wing and the exhilaration of foiling above the water combine for a truly amazing new sport. This sport is easier to learn and works in a broader range of wind conditions. We teach a step-by-step progression of skills to get you up and flying for the thrill of a lifetime. We are stoked to see the whole family enjoying this new sport together – from young kids to grandmas and grandpas! First we will teach you the wing skills. Your first foil will be big, stable and slow for your safety and comfort. We teach all skill levels from beginner to advanced in all the disciplines: speed, tricks and downwinder cruising, carving turns.
