We used waves to book a "surf safari" and we couldn't have been happier. Our instructor was professional, talented, and fun. He made our surfing experience as easy as could be. We had 1 some what experienced surfer and 2 new surfers. Everyone got to learn new things about the waves. The photos were great too! Thanks Waves for a... More

A huge Mahalo goes out to the people at Maui Waveriders. An excellent experience from start to end. The instructor, Andrew, was very attentive, safety conscious, and did an excellent job at taking the participants from introductions to an amazing surfing experience. Cost was a good deal and combined with the professional yet relaxed atmosphere, made it an all round... More

We had our first ever 2-hour surfing lesson here. The teacher was great and really patient with us and we got some fabulous pictures which we bought at the end on a CD (reasonable but you are definitely going to want to buy them so make sure you have a method of payment on you). We had no idea how... More

Fantastic day with Eddy and Mataeus. Eddy safely helped all of us in our group learn how to surf and helped our friends who did not take lessons with us learn how to surf. Mateus took great photos. We had a great day.

We met the crew at a beach location that had waves that were good for beginners, and provided excellent prep and real time instruction. It was one of the items on my Bucket List that I can now check off.

Seriously, if you want to take a surf lesson, choose these guys. My husband and I took a private lesson with Brooks, and he was simply awsome. He made us comfortable from the begining, gave us good tips throughout the session, he was reassuring and fun. John was taking good pictures and giving us useful feedback as well. We really... More

Took surf and SAP lessons from Brooks and loved them both. Totally good, patient teacher who is really fun to be with and knowledgeable. The waves in Kihei are babies so ou are nearly guaranteed to stand up, so long as you follow his direction. Stand up paddling was a total blast and we went way out from the beach... More
