My son and I both really enjoyed our lessons with Sharkey and Donny. Both of us got up first time so that was awesome! They are very good teachers of a difficult sport. It was a great experience and will definitley go with them again and refer my friends to them. Mahalo!!! p.s. loved Luna too. Bernice and Cole.

My husband and I brought our 2 kids to Maui this past month for our first trip to the Islands. The top activity on our list was a surf lesson. We found MSG on Tripadvisor, liked what we saw so called and booked 2 semi private lessons. One for my 7 and 9 year olds and one for my husband... More

My son and I took a semi-private lesson with Gabby in late March 2014. As first-time surfers, Gabby was very patient with us and was supportive and encouraging. As a result of our great instructor, my son and I caught wave after wave - on our own. It was an absolutely fantastic experience. I would recommend Gabby and Maui Surfer... More

The reviews were right on. These girls take their time and tailor the small group instruction to each person so everyone gets the personal treatment. Top notch instruction and assistance. Everyone was standing up on their first try! Kelly was great. She really wants you too feel the rush that gave her a passion for surfing. Thanks to Karen too!... More

This is the 3rd surfing lesson my kids have taken in Maui, and Maui Surfer Girls was the best. I signed my kids up for a semi private. My sister (a mom, in her early 40's) also signed up for a group lesson at the same time. It ended up that my sister was the only one for her group... More

Looked for a good Maui Surfer School and read that this was the best in Maui! Completely agree! This was the highlight of my daughters' trip. The teachers were fabulous, the beach was beautiful and my girls got up on their boards right away! Loved their dog, so cute! Totally recommend!

Maui Surfer Girls rock!!! Our son who has ADHD, and was fearful of trying to surf again due to a spill he took 3 years ago during a surf lesson, nevertheless went out and tried surfing again all because of Dustin's calming influence, experience and patience. <3 Thank you Dustin for turning around our son's fear and having him see...

My two kids took surfing lessons from an instructor named Sharky. The preferred surfing location east of Lahaina that day was experiencing high winds from the mountains, so the class was moved for safety reasons to a spot closer to Lahaina. It was good to know that safety was a top priority. After about 20 minutes of on land instruction,... More

My husband, son, and I wanted to take surf lessons for the first time. Going with Maui Surfer Girls was a great choice! Kudos to Sharky and Jedi who were patient with the three of us especially our son! We loved the location and small individualized class size. We all were able to get up on our boards thanks to...

Our patient, knowledgeable, instructor Carole made us believe that if two middle-aged, out of shape, people tried hard enough, we could do it. And we did. When we return to Maui we will take some more instruction from the great people at Maui Surfer Girls.
