We stopped here after the beach and it was so good! Good prices and the owner and her kids were so friendly! I would for sure come back again!

“Best shave ice I've ever had.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

We went to the location next to Foodland. A very friendly British guy runs the stand. I had a root beer shave ice with ice cream on the bottom. It tasted just like a root beer float. We went here almost every day for a shave ice fix. So good , , ,

“Best on Maui”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

Ive Tried 75% Or More Shaved Ice Spots on the Island. THIS SPOT Stands out the Most as Far as Quality. I Frequent Maui annually, im always sure to make Frequent Stops at this Spot.

Dont forget about the Taco Truck in the Parking Lot. ALL HIGH QUALITY MEAT. I tried ALL of the Varieties of Tacos! Amazing!

“Best shave ice around Kihei”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

Spent a week trying all of the shave ice places around Kihei, and Surfing Monkey wins hands down. The other places shave their ice soooo thin that it turns to snow and the syrups never make it to the bottom of the shave ice, and the others charge extra for EVERYTHING - at Surfing Monkey no extra fees for Azuki beans, Ice cream on the bottom, sweet cream, or Li Hing Mui powder. The Pineapple/Li Hing Mui combo is the bomb. Great shave ice, really wonderful staff.
