This semi-private surfing lesson was one of our favorite activities on our honeymoon to Maui! We loved our instructor, David, and got up on our boards quickly thanks to his clear directions. We had so much fun and loved that we were surrounded by turtles the whole time too.

My 10 and 13 year old had the best time at their first surf lessons! Epes got them surfing a wave within 5 minutes of the lesson! They have been begging to go back. We purchased the photos taken by Kai the photographer and he made them look like pro surfers. What a perfect experience!

Very good location in Kihei. Beach is easily accessible and the waves are perfect for beginners. Always felt safe and in control in this location. I've surfed one other time 15 years ago and this 2 hour lesson quickly brought it back to me. Sarge was a very helpful instructor.

Had a great time on our lesson. It was our second time surfing and we were catching waves the whole time. Great place to learn since the waves are so mellow. The instructions were clear and allowed us to feel like we were progressing and turning in the directions we wanted to go rather than simply standing up and “holding on”. We also especially appreciated the dedicated photographer that paddles out with you and captures great shots. As a bonus, you get up close to the sea turtles (more so than on the guided snorkeling trip we did). Would strongly recommend to anyone travelling to Maui.

Surf Club Maui is a really great group of people! Nico instructed our teen son on the first day and he was up and surfing in a few tries. He was also able to jump 180 on the board before the end. That encouraged my husband and I to try the next day. The Amazing Turtle taught all three of us. Our son was doing even more fancy moves on his board! Surfing was the highlight of his trip! And my husband and I had several good runs. A great experience. It really helps to learn surfing with instructors like these who can keep you safe and help you with the timing of the wave so you have the best success. The entire group from the Surf Club Maui is very enjoyable. They engage in conversation. They are quite competent instructors and really enjoy surfing and teaching. And they love Maui and enjoy talking about it. They come from many different nationalities but share Maui and surfing as their passion. The base rate for the lesson is really inexpensive. Plan to give a nice tip to the instructor. The photos are really the only keepsake. Plan to buy a few or a package.
