About
Maui Surfer Girls offers the best surf lessons and surf camps on Maui. Our surf school caters to small groups, families and newlyweds, with small class sizes and professional instructors (most of whom are female!) We started in 2001 with our summer surf camps for teenage girls, with a mission to build self-confidence through the sport of surfing. We quickly branched out to offer year-round surf lesson to men and women, and kids starting at age 5! Our teen camps have grown to be extremely popular, and we offer our women's camps quarterly. We look forward to sharing the spirit of aloha with you on Maui’s warm waves.

Josh and Victoria were excellent. Calm, patient, safe and well organized. They made us feel comfortable about the ocean, the wave breaks, the method, the courtesies and the safe way to surf and have fun. Dad (52) and daughter (18) and son (16) had a great time and were up and surfing in no time. They could teach anyone and keep them safe in doing so. This 2 hours fly by, was a great value and I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.

My family of 4 (17 and 15yr old son/daughter and my wife and I) were lucky enough to have Dustin and Kiki as our awesome instructors. They got us all up on either 1st or 2nd wave! Not huge waves when we were there, but that might have been a good thing. :) We were so excited to start our Hawaii adventure/vacation with Maui Surfer Girls. They location was great as they tout on the website. We saw several other areas with swarms of wanna be surfers and surf schools. It was luxurious to be able to really only have one other family around us. Would highly recommend getting their photographer to come out and take some pics too! We were too busy surfing to take our own pics, and you go pretty far out, so iPhone pics wouldn't have cut it. Book your surf lessons early though b/c they are popular and slots fill up quick!!! Thanks Dustin and Kiki!! Maja. Mahalo!!

From booking to entry the Maui surfer Girls instructors made us feel like we could surf even though it was our first time! We took the semi private lesson and our instructors Zoe and Gia were attentive kind and supportive all they way through. They broke down the steps to surfing into clear concise components that made a no fail recipe for success. After each run they gave you feedback to fine tune your skills. Everyone in our party of four made it up and were able to ride the waves of Maui! We truly loved our Maui Surfer Girl experience and would highly recommend them to anyone learning to surf! Thank you for a great experience!

Highlight of our Trip to Maui! Highly recommend this group, they take the time to get you acclimated on land so in the first try or two you should be standing up riding a wave. Great coaches, great experience. We did a semi-private lesson for the two of us and it was perfect; worth the extra for sure. Huge shout out to Kelly for making it an unforgettable day!!

I booked a beginner, 2-hour, private surf lesson for my 11 year old Daughter with Maui Surfer Girls for our vacation on Maui. Josh was her instructor and he was excellent. After a brief land introduction, the majority of the time spent was on the water. The location was easy to find, just South of Lahaina, and well suited for a beginner. My daughter was up and surfing in no-time, and was so happy afterwards. Thank you Josh & Maui Surfer Girls!

My cousin and I were so happy with our very first surf lesson and we’re so glad it was with Maui Surfer Girls. We had Lance as our instructor who was awesome!! We originally booked a semi-private lesson for our group of 4 but 2 dropped out for personal reasons so it ended up just being 2:1. He did however, let 2 of our significant others who accompanied us but did not plan on joining sit in on our land lesson.

Lance had a calming, mellow nature about him. He is clearly knowledgeable and in tune with the nature and development of waves which by sharing helped to put all of our beginner nerves at ease. He guided us thru the progression on-land in a way that was simple and easy to follow. Lance has a way of making things light and even picked up that we were a little tense so he suggested to pause for a brief yoga session which helped to loosen us up. He made us feel safe and confident being out on the water and both of us managed to get up on the board the first time and rode some modest beginner waves (albeit shakey). We left feeling very accomplished and thrilled with our first surfing experience, adding to a memorable first time in Hawaii, and we owe it all to Lance and Maui Surfer Girls for making that possible. We would do it again in a heartbeat.

A surf lesson for my three daughter was a must on Maui so we did a lot of research ahead of time. We finally decided on Maui Surfer Girls and am so glad we did. We booked the 8am slot for my three daughters with Gina, who was amazing. While my oldest daughter has surfed before on Cape Cod, my youngest two had only boogie boarded. The location on Ukumehame Beach is surreal. This place is the perfect spot - rustic and a true surfer spot. That in of itself made it special. This is clearly Maui Surfer Girls spot as the have donated to the highway cleaning which is commemorated with a sign which is super nice. My daughters were a bit overwhelmed and nervous but Gina was great, getting them out past the reef and standing up on the board riding waves. It was nice as the land based part of the course was brief and they had a lot of time out in the water riding the waves in a very organized manner - clearly they know what they are doing! I wish we could have booked another lesson but sadly they were all booked up for the remainder of our stay - and I can understand why! I would highly recommend Maui Surfer Girls to anyone who wants to learn to surf at an awesome spot with some great instructors! Will definitely do this again on Maui!

Womens Surf Camp was the coolest experience I've had. The accommodations are so cute, they are these little a framed cabins right on the beach and you get to room with a couple people. The ladies of MSG from the owner, to support staff, and instructors are out of this world (Dustin, Lucy, Kelsey, Kelly, Rachel, Luna, Joy and Meadow). They made the week so incredible for all of us. Between the surfing, hang out time, meals and other adventures included in the week it was the most I've laughed and smiled in a long time. The surf instruction was super helpful, positive and useful for surfing and applicable to life. The instructors are just as stoked as the students when a wave is caught. They are genuinely excited for you and their energy is contagious. Luna the surf dog joined us too and made an instant impact on camp life.
The food for this camp seriously needs it's own section. Joy & Meadow compiled meals everyday that were fit for royalty. I don't think I've ever ate so well in my life and each meal had a good balance of vegetables, meat, etc. I miss the food every day. Those brownies!! The plated dinner!! Every freaking meal!!! Delicious.
I can't wait to do this camp again. It was an experience I will cherish forever.
Thanks to the Maui Surfer Girls for putting on such an epic week.

This was our second time getting private lessons for our girls (12, 14, 16). The last time was three years ago. The private lesson is worth it because the girls had individualized instruction. A group lesson was happening at the same time and the student surfers had more downtime than surf time waiting for a turn. My girls had a great time and all three rated it as the favorite activity of the trip.

We booked the group surf lesson and were assigned 1 instructor to 4 customers. Our instructor was Wyland and he was great! They provided yoga pants and long sleeves as rash guards. The first 30 minutes were dedicated to going over safety and surf basics on the sand. They also went over surf etiquette which we haven’t found to be a common but was very useful. We surfed at Ukumehame Beach. The waves were good, temperature was perfect, and there was a channel which made paddling out easier.

It was a good time being in the ocean, Wyland helped everybody catch some waves. When paddling got tough, he would help get us set up for the best rides. Of the 4 customers, each person caught about 4 or 5 waves in about an hour and a half.
