I've had several lessons with Chuck over the years & can't say enough good things about his professionalism, friendliness, and easy demeanor. Having the headset in the water is a huge added bonus when working through the beginner steps. I'm now (almost) tacking back upwind, thanks to Chuck's amazing tips. Aloha Chuck!

Aloha Karen, Sitting here at the airport heading back to the mainland. This was my second time taking lessons from you and Diana. I could not have enjoyed myself anymore. We had some challenging conditions, but with Diana's patient instructions, I was up and riding smoothly. Diana is a great teacher! I look forward to building on what I have learned now down on the Columbia Gorge. It was also great to meet you this year. Always nice to put a name to a voice on a phone. Mahalo Nui loa and A hui ho. A.j. Paulsen

I called Karen (the boss) after being disappointed with hiring a free lance instructor who sort put me off the sport. She was very friendly, accommodating and explained all the necessary steps to transition from windsurfing (I used to be an windsurf instructor and there are some critical differences that need practice). Karen set me up with Jayeson who is an outstanding instructor. He went step by step and very effectively taught me how to handle the kite and be safe. He was extremely friendly and nice and had a genuine interest in my learning curve. I highly recommend this school and encourage anyone in a similar situation to look for certified and organized instructors. Excellent experience. Thank you Karen, Jayeson and team.

Corey was FANTASTIC!!! We loved our Kite Surf lesson!! We moved to the island and I was excited to learn to kite surf! I took a lesson with a different company and did not enjoy any of it, OMGosh it was so bad!!! I gave it a year and really wanted to give it another shot! These guys at Aqua Sports Maui came highly recommended by a good friend and they lived up to the hype!!! My teenage daughters and I took an afternoon lesson with Corey and he was so great! Patient and knowledgeable, really catered to all 3 of our needs and we had an absolute blast!! We can't wait to suit up again! I Highly recommend this company if you're looking for quality kite surf instruction!

I signed up for a week's worth of Kiteboarding lessons from Aqua Sports Maui during a vacation in Maui. My instructor was Tim. Tim was one of the best instructors I have had in any sport. Very calm, informative and gave some great information on how to kiteboard. He had a big picture understanding of what I needed to do to get to the next step. He also had a very good understanding of the wind and could tell when I needed to make adjustments to how to fly my kite. I had never kiteboarded before, but was very eager to learn. Tim gave me the opportunity to figure things out. He was eager to see me progress, and I felt I made very quick progress from his tips and instruction. Would highly recommend Aqua Sports Maui and Tim.
