My friend and I took a surf lesson from Toni. We might be a bit older than most getting out there. We had a wonderful time. Toni was very clear in her direction and made it easy to apply the techniques and points that she was teaching. I learned more in this surf lesson than my prior surf lessons combined!... More

Eddie was such an awesome instructor! Not only was he great at teaching us, but also great at helping us get better throughout our lesson. I absolutely loved his way of critique and also loved that he praised us when we did a great job. If you're looking for surf lessons while in Maui this is the company to do... More

Surfed for 2 hours with the most ideal surf school in Maui. My private instructor is Toni, who is a very friendly and patient instructor. She taught me every thing that I need to know when it comes to surfing, and she is always straight to the point when giving instructions. I highly recommend this surf school for beginners and...

Eddie was super friendly and very helpful with catching waves. I would highly recommend checking out Waves if you are looking for a surf lesson! This may have... More

We had so much fun working with Eddie! we had a group with some first time surfers and others who had been on a board before and Eddie did a great job of showing us basics and helping us to expand our skills. We had so much fun we went back for another day on the waves. If you work... More

Had my first ever surfing lesson today. Instructor was Fernando - amazing. Had me up on my first wave. They don't spend too much time out of the water, so all your time is maximized learning how to get up and ride a wave. Highly recommend this place!

My sister and I enjoyed ourselves immensely and found a new interest in the sport of surfing with the help from our wonderful instructor Fernando. He was extremely helpful and was able to correct our mistakes and by the end of the lesson we were doing some basic tricks! There was also a photographer out in the water with us... More

My kids ages 9 and 11 had a fantastic time learning to surf with Fernando. We've been to Hawaii 10 times now, but this is the first trip in which we tried this pastime. We were a little hesitant at first not knowing how safe it would be. Fernando put us at ease and took extra care to ensure that... More

Had an amazing time with Sara from the Waves Hawaii Surf School. My two girls, ages 10 and 13 had the best time learning to surf. Sara was so kind and patient and spent a good amount of time with them ensuring their morning was a memorable one. One of the best days we spent on the island. Thank you... More
