“Surfing lessons at the Kaanapali beach with the Royal Hawaiian surf school”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

Our family took surfing lessons twice while we were vacationing in Maui. We took lessons from the Royal Hawaiian surf school on Kaanapali beach. On the first day, our instructor was Kalani. He was great with us, especially our sons (13 and 15). He was friendly and very patient. He did a great job and we all were able to stand up on our boards and surf. The second time, the instructor was Mau. He was also amazing, fun and friendly. It was a great experience and we would recommend taking lessons with them any day.

“Royal Hawaiian Surf Academy - Two thumbs up!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Kelani was an awesome instructor!! Our 12 year old daughter, was up on her first wave and pretty much every other time with the help of a great instructor.

Everyone is friendly and so much fun. She loved it so much she went a second day.

We plan to be back and will definitely take more lessons here!

“Best Surf Lessons”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Our family took surf lessons with the Royal Hawaiian Surf company in Lahaina. Our instructor was Josh and he was so much fun for our boys, ages 10 and 12, but also very good at teaching them how to get up and how to read the waves. We all got up on our boards and had a great time. So much so that we came back the next day to surf the same location. Even my 75 year old father got up on the board and loved it!!! Thanks Josh for making surfing such a fun experience for us.

“Surfing With Ahanu Tson-Dru”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Signed our kids up for surf lessons at Marriott Hawaiian Surf School. Their instructor was Ahanu. he did a fabulous job teaching them how to surf for the first time. They had so much fun it was a wonderful experience, one they will never forget nor will my husband and I. Their faces were priceless!! We requested him for the next day when we went paddle boarding as a family and again he did a great job went above what we expected! I feel Ahanu is a asset to your company and we will be back before our vacation is over because of him. Thank you for these memorable experiences Ahanu!
Fondly, The Bray Family
