My two kids did a lesson with the awesome Sharky. My son is 9 and my daughter 11. The kids were up and surfing in no time and Sharky was able to work his magic on my son who was a little scared. By the end he was up and surfing with confidence, he can't wait to go again. Sharky... More

Great to work with and get registered on line. Texted the morning of lessons with location change for the best waves. Sharky was awesome about knowing the swimming/standing ability of all of us and really helping us catch the waves. I had lessons from another provider in Maui and it was NOT the same experience. MSG keeps the groups small... More

Fantastic small group lesson. We did the stand up paddle boarding lesson and booked a small group with three of us. The lesson was great--very practical, patient advice. The instructor (Lucy) helped each of us individually with the areas where we struggled. The provided equipment was used, of course, but exactly what we needed. We had a great experience!

I found these guys on trip advisor as there are so many schools in the area its hard to know which one to go with. They did not disappoint the location was changed last minute to the benefit of the students which was well communicated. The lesson was for a good two hours and our instructor sharkey was great at...

Just adding to Simon88's review. Our instructor Sharky was amazing! He made it so much fun and had so much *patience* for each of us (there were 4 of us that day). We all were able to get on a wave more than once before our lessons ended. :) Hopefully we get to cross paths again in the future! Mahalo!

My 17 and 20 year old had their first surf lesson and both had a fabulous time! The location was so perfect for first time riders - waves were gentle and long. I marvelled at seeing both the children not only stand up and ride the waves, but smile all the way along. We had Sharkie as our instructor -... More

This is probably one of the best places to learn for a beginner. Especially for a person who is interested in learning to surf and not just saying they stood on a board. The instructors are amazing. The location is perfect as it was not crowded when we went and the waves seemed like a decent size for a beginner.... More

We couldn't agree more! This is what stands us apart for our competitors. We are among the few schools that have a permit to teach at Ukumehame Beach Park. Combine our ideal location with a stellar team & our students walk away with an amazing Maui memory and surf skills to take home! Thanks for your great review! More

We specifically wanted a female instructor for our 16-year old daughter who was nervous to learn to surf. She had an amazing experience with Maui Surfer girls! My husband accompanied her (he has surfed before) and what he particularly liked was the fact that the instructors don't just teach you to stand on the board. They want you to learn... More

What more could my 6 good friends and I experience? I caught the first wave after watching my birthday buddy catch his own. A complete lesson at a perfect beginner wave site .Amazing!

Our family signed up for surfing and paddle boarding lessons. What we received instead was a deep and meaningful understanding of what a connection with the ocean is all about. Lucy and Sharky (both of whom were amazingly conscious and energetic) instantly bonded with us and shared the history of he'e nalu, the islands and the rich and magnificent history... More
