I have wanted to learn how to do standup paddle boarding for years. After seeing the reviews on Trip Advisor, I chose the beginner lesson at Goofy Foot. Marissa was the instructor and she was fantastic! While you normally have calm conditions, ours were extremely choppy. Marissa told us if we could paddle board in these conditions, we could do...

I took a group lesson on standup paddle board with Marissa. Five people in the group. It was very well organized, starting with 10 minutes dry-land instruction (we were all never-evers). We were all up and paddling in slightly choppy water really quickly. Marissa carefully explained where we would be going, a little tricky since there's a lot of coral... More

It was our third time at Goofy Foot Surf School, we had a great time and a great instructor "Carter". Would highly recommend the school to anyone who wants to try surfing or is looking to make it a part of their life. The whole staff made it a fun and enjoyable time and our instructor Carter provided insight into... More

The day I visited Lahaina the wind was gusting to 30 kts and after asking around a few surf schools I went into Goofy Foot. The staff is very friendly and I honestly got the sense that their biggest priority is making sure that their guests are having fun. Even after time had run out, I was allowed to surf... More

I had such a good time with this group. I have to say at the moment I can't remember our instructors name but he was great and patient. I was with a friend's daughter who is much much younger than me and we really had fun. The group was small and supportive of each other. I managed to stand up... More

I enjoyed the small group, it was just the three of us and we weren't "young 'uns", Carter was our instructor and gave us great individual instruction and kept our "training wheels" on until we could get our feet under us (he'd hold the board steady, while catching a "wave" or giving the board a shove, when needed) he slowly...

Our teacher, Carter, was pretty laid back and just wanted us to have fun first and learn a few basic... More

Talvi was an excellent instructor when I went out for a lesson with my husband. He was very patient and explained things very well. The nice part of this location is that the waves are the perfect size and the line up wasn't too crowded. Great experience, and I highly recommend Goofy Foot Surf School.
