I Live in Orange County CA and I do a lot of skimboarding and wasn't really planning on skimboarding here in Maui but Sean hooked it up great guy and couldn't complain one bit. I had a lot of fun and it was worth every penny. Thank you Sean once again

In the past when going to Hawaii I have always had to bring my own skim board and inevitably something goes wrong with the airlines. I was really stoked to find Skim Hawaii renting high quality boards for reasonable prices. Sean came out to my hotel with a range of boards to choose from and I ended up with a... More

I did some skimboarding eons ago (15 years), in Italy, and I wanted to try the real thing in Maui. I had a private lesson with Sean and it was a fantastic experience: in an hour and a half I managed to do a few good rides and got the hang of the basics. Skimboarding is fun!

SkimHawaii is the absolute best. My sons have skimmed for a few years in Florida, but wanted to learn to get in the waves. Sean does an amazing job instructing kids of all ages. He paces instruction on their own skill levels. He was so great that we ended up buying another skim board and now my girls want to... More

My 11-yr old had a great time with his Skim Hawaii rental. The board was in great condition, the price a bargain, and Sean delivered right to our hotel in Wailea with a smile. The local shops rent boogie boards but no skim boards, so Skim Hawaii was great for us.

My first time surfing was with a group lesson for 2 hours at Kihei, but the waves were small and for a 16 year old, pretty boring. Sean took it to the next level by taking me out to some bigger waves and offering excellent advice and support! I would highly recommend skipping the boring group lessons and going straight... More

Sean was a great instructor for my 9-year-old, who took a couple hour-long lessons during our stay at the Kaanapali Ali last summer. He's great with the kids and my son had zero experience and wanted to learn.

This is the raddest skim service in all of Hawaii. Sean is the nicest guy, and the delivery service is awesome. I loved my board that I rented and it was all worth the price. I am doing this when ever I come back to Maui!

Sean dropped off my rental to our condo right after I called him, and picked it up once I was finished. Great board at an affordable price, and having Sean pick it up and drop it off was very convenient. It was great to get a local's opinion on the best local skim spots, and he also spoke to my...

Sean is a super talented and nice instructor, had a great time. The drop off of the board was seamless and right on time. Would do it again and recommend it to anyone who wants to try skim boarding.
