We read in Maui Revealed that this place comes highly recommended for surf lessons, and they were right! Since our son is under 9, he needed to have private lessons. They do cost more than the group, but it was well worth every penny. Our son had his own private teacher, was on the water before everyone else, and surfed... More

Was really looking forward to trying surfing at 43. I wanted to have my kids try it. 16 and 11. We thought our trip to Hawaii was a perfect time. I went off the reviews and we decided on Goofy Foot. Great decision. Mike, our instructor was fantastic and was patient with me and the kids. Super laid back. Had... More

We had a great time learning to surf at Goofy Foot. There were four of us in the 10 AM group lesson. None of us had surf or other board (snow, wake, or skate) experience. Our instructor, Mike Dean was able to break down the process of getting up the board into a few steps. He had a calm demeanor... More

My second surf lesson and my first with Goofy Foot. Myself and two children went out with Keith and I was impressed with both his knowledge, feedback and consideration for the children on their first lesson. Managed to ride a few waves including an unintentional wave where I didn't get up as 'it wasn't my turn' - Keith was not... More

It was simply fantastic. My two kids (9 year old boy and 10 year old girl), who have never surfed, took a group class with another mid-aged gentleman from the UK. The three of them had an awesome time riding in the waves. I was *so* surprised that the kids were able to stand on the surf board and do... More

We got Goofy Foot recommended by our our hotel and we are happy we followed their advise. Talvi was a great instructor for our family with two girls 12 and 14. Everyone managed to surf on their first attempt. We all had such a great experience we decided to go back. Girls did a private surf lesson and learnt some... More

My wife and I (23yrs) had a great time surfing it up. We went for a mid-morning group surf lesson. The group was made up of us 2 + 3 strangers, and we all were new to surfing. We learned the basics on the beach (~10 min) , practiced in the shallow water to try and get our balance (~10... More

Patient, encouraging instruction. Everyone got up. There was more waiting between turns that I expected but it wasn't too much. Fun morning.
