Took the kids for shaved ice and this place was great. Had the large shave ice and it was huge and the flavours were awesome. Have gone back a second time already. The staff are GREAT.

For all the vegans out there who miss a good ice cream cone check this out when in Maui. Excellent quality, good flavor selection and friendly service. Easy access location in the Food Land parking lot mall.

This place was fantastic, there are many places to get shave ice and they are not all created equal. This was one of our favorites and was nice to sit inside and share stories with the owner and her kids. Cant wait to go back.

We have been to Surfing Monkey multiple times, and have never had an unpleasant experience. The shave ice is so soft and there are a ton of flavors to choose from! Pricing is reasonable, and they are generous with the sizes available. The dark haired...More
