I took a private lesson with Carter. The early morning weekday (7am) was a perfect time, because he and I were the first on the water. No one else showed up for a good hour. Carter explained the basics thoroughly - it was my first time. We got in the water fairly quickly to make the experience real. I was... More

Had a great morning getting coached by Carter. It was refreshing getting a coach and not just a pat on the back saying good try. He encouraged me the whole time, but also offered guidance on what I was doing wrong and how I could do it better. It made for a great experience and in the end I know... More

My eight year old son wanted to try surfing here in Maui. We were lucky enough to find Goofy Foot and be paired with Coach Carter! Coach Carter was great for me as a concerned parent. And super fun for my son. My son was hooked after his first private lesson. We had two more lessons that week! Coach Carter... More

My wife and I took our first surfing lesson at Goofy Foot. We had an almost private lesson (group of 3) with Carter Evans whom I would highly recommend. 2 hours went by really quickly and we had a blast. He explained the basic technique of getting up on the board, how to tackle waves and how to position yourself... More

This is a fun and relatively quick activity that is a must for your Hawaiian trip. We were a group of 10 and none of us had ever surfed. Ages ranged from 16-53. We had a blast, thanks to Armadillo! And "yes" we all were able to get up and ride a wave. They are well organized, provide all the... More

My sister and I went for a private lesson while on vacation in Maui, and it was awesome!! We went for an early lesson with Keith, it was great to have the personalized tutelage geared toward our strengths and weakness. We were able to get out on the water (and stand up on our first waves) before the other surf... More

Excellent. We had a group lesson for 5 of us. Talvi was our instructor. Could not have gone better. All 5 of us easily got up after the instruction and Talvi talking us through it. 2 hours was perfect.

Went out with Keith for a private lesson during my Christmas holiday. I had taken my family for a group lesson two days earlier, but with five of us waiting our turn, I only got four runs on the board, and needed more practice. A private lesson makes a HUGE difference. Much more personal attention, lots more waves to catch...by... More

My friend and I had been surfing before, but she had a terrible experience her first time out and never managed to get up on the board. Goofy Foots guarantee really appealed to her. First wave and she rode it to shore! The instruction was really good- and it was a small class size so we caught a lot of... More

Our instructors were Talvi and Mikey. Talvi was excellent with our 6-yr-old Declan and Mikey was so positive for 9-yr-old Jessica. Both kids were surfing independently within minutes. We liked how the instructors surfed on their own boards during the lesson. Kids felt confident and had such a positive experience and learned a lot. We would recommend both instructors. Thanks...
