What You Can Expect

Maui Surf Instruction 101

Maui Surf Instruction 101

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.

I know as well as anyone getting into a new sport can be tough. Brandon did a great job of making us newbies feel comfortable. By the end I felt like I was just surfing with some friends. That's right, actually surfing. His A+ instruction made the learning curve more of a fun wave. Highly recomended

Surfing wasn't something on my 'must-do' list at the start of the trip but I am so glad my partner and I ended up doing it and chose this company in the end as we had an amazing instructor (Brandon) who was clearly passionate about surfing and imparted lots of information during the 2hour lesson. Because we chose the 8am lesson, we were also the only ones there so it made it more personal and gave us more one-on-one time with the instructor. Would highly recommend to anyone as I was a first-timer and stood on the board after the 2nd wave. We also had a chance to watch dolphins and had some close encounters with sea turtles. Overall, very memorable. Thanks Brandon!
