My son and I signed up for surfing with Maui Wave Riders on the recommendation of a friend who lives in Maui, and it was a blast. Our instructor Ben was obviously passionate about surfing, but his commitment to our safety was paramount. Although some...More

My spouse had surfed (somewhat) in the past but recommended we take lessons. Our instructor, Sol, was great. She explained the moves and recognized my fears and was very helpful. The waves in this location were perfect for beginners. I never fell once! (surprising enough)....More

It is very important to try something for the first time with a person who loves what he does. The passion of the instructor for surfing was passed on to me, that's why now I'm in love with this sport too

We had Mack in a semi-private with 3 teenage girls. All got up easily and had a great 2 hours of fun. I would highly recommend this for a fun thing to do in HI. Well worth the money.

Taner is fantastic! My 17 year old son had a blast. We did a last minute reservation for a private lesson. The shop is across the road from the waves...short walk. Highly recommend!

This was our 3rd time with MWR and it was once again a great experience. My only recommendation is that they take a look at their photo strategy. $80 for a family of 4 for a CD is steep and charging an extra $5 for...More

Coming from Vancouver, I jumped at the opportunity to surf when visiting Maui. Maui Wave Riders was the perfect place for my sisters and I, who love adventure, but have never surfed before. Our instructor Kazuma was such a great and patient teacher. We donned...More
