Just back from a great week of kiting Maui kite beach. As kiting was only a small part of a larger trip I travelled without my own kite gear and needed to hire equipment. The service, safety checks and competency assessment, instruction for managing the water entry and local wind conditions was excellent. A good range of Naish kites, boards... More

The 2 teens in our group took a windurfing lesson. Action sports was very professional, gave good directions and they were there waiting for us in a clearly marked vehicle when we arrived at the beach park. The instructor was friendly and patient with a tolerant smile throughout the day. We were lucky to have only our 2 in the... More

On November 2013 I booked a kiteboarding class for around three hours . I took the one that gives you a certificate at the end of the class. My main reason for this whole class is to get a certificate in order to be able to rent the gear when in vacation as I did some kiteboarding before and have... More

Hi, I am sorry to just now hear your about your experience in November, 8 months ago. I wish you would have contacted us earlier and we would have invited you back for a complimentary lesson. I have checked all my records and I do not have any e-mail correspondence from you. You did mention you gave your e-mail to... More

I took the 3-day kite lessons package - my instructor, Gonzo, was great! Extremely informative/helpful in providing instruction, personable, and fun. Action Sports Maui is also clearly committed to safety (much of Day 1 was spent understanding how to properly control and understand the kite for students' and others' safety), in-depth instruction, and ensuring that students leave with a solid...

I only had one day to kiteboard while I was in Maui and I didn't have my gear. Action Sports Maui hooked me up with some high quality rental equipment, they had all sizes of kites and a variety of boards. I also got a great 2 hour lesson with David to help learn to handle the strong winds on... More

My family tried a windsurfing lesson, it was very fun and a unique experience. The instructor was very patient and a great teacher. We will probably try it again. Would recommend.

The Action Sport group were great to work with. I had never kite boarded before and David made sure that the experience was one to definitely worth writing about. He walked through all the fundamentals of how to control and rig the equipment. Safety was always paramount throughout every step. Only regret was that I had more time on my... More

My wife and I took up kiteboarding last February (2013) and have been learning and practicing ever since. Having said that, we wanted more lessons and also to be guided on where to kite in Maui; David and Suzie (owners of Action) were awesome. Suzie booked us in and we met David and the crew down at Kite Beach (at... More

Decided to try Kiting in the perfect conditions. Suzie was very helpful in sorting out my outdoor skills and my instructor Ray was top notch. Ray was great at teaching me about the gear and how the wind works. He taught by example and let me take over the more he saw my competence. It was a good pace and... More

I called in last moment but they were able to get me a spot for a private surf lesson. The instructor (forgot her name) was cute and funny! She taught me all the fundamentals and I was able to catch my first two waves while in the lesson. They then let me keep the board for the rest of the... More
