Sean is a real pro. He had our two young kids skimmimg down the beach in no time at all. He also had great quality boards to meet the conditions so the experience is more fun. Definitely recommended and will use Skim Hawaii again!

My 16 year old son wanted to bring his skim board to Maui but that was going to cost us $100 each way in oversize luggage fees! We found Skim Hawaii online and decided to rent instead. That was the way to go! It was a quality board at a reasonable rate plus Sean delivered it to our hotel. My... More

To all perspective renters: Skim Hawaii is AMAZING. I am from Seattle, WA and I love skimming. I'm used to flat land skimming so I was nervous about trying out wave skimming and I was a little intimidated about where to rent from/who to talk to. Sean was so sweet and picked out the perfect board for me. It took... More

Sean delivered the board when you wanted. Very easy and very fun! It was a great way to spend a day on the beach.

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
