I rented a full kitesurfing kit (kite, board and harness) from Aqua Sports Maui for one day during my Christmas holiday in Maui. Karen who gave me information and made my booking was very friendly.
Dennis, the instructor who checked on my skills before approving rental (by the way something entirely appropriate because no kiter should want other kiters to get in trouble or hurt themselves or even worse, innocent bystanders) was an experienced and easy to work with dude. Equipment was good (North Evo and Cabrinha Vector kites). I had a fun day kiting at Kite Beach and enjoyed seeing a green turtle hanging around on a reef, the first time I experienced this whilst riding!
I would have rented for additional days but sadly the following day, my second to last day on the island, the wind dropped.
Thanks Karen, Dennis and wife, Bryan and rest of the super nice staff! Hang loose!
My teacher was fantastic and made my experience a lot of fun. Unfortunately the weather did not work out but I still had a blast. Highly recommended!
I had a great experience with Aqua Sports Maui from beginning to end. I would recommend this company to anyone seeking rental or Kiteboarding lessons. Thanks guys!
I chose Aquasports largely based on the reviews I read. They lived up to them all. I had Diana for a day and half and Matt for a day ( A day for me was a 3 hour session). They did not extend my session in conditions that would not keep me learning and excited. Matt and Diana were both amazing people, genuinely committed to my progress and safety. Karen the owner, answered every one of my calls and question leading up to the start including my panic call while lost on the way to my first lesson. This is not a bunch of surf bum drop outs . This is a group of intelligent, enthusiastic, highly skilled people in great shape that could be doing a lot of things that pay a lot better. I felt lucky to be in their hands and am sure you will too.
Took 4 lessons with Karen Lang and was on the board and riding on the 3rd day. Considering it's a not an easy sport to learn, I was super happy to see progress so fast. Karen was, helpful, encouraging and patient. Great experience, thank you Aqua Sports Maui!
Great kiteboarding school. Their booking process is easy (you can even do it online through their website), and their instructors are great! They are really patient and thorough, and pushed me to improve and progress while making sure my safety was top priority. I've been amazed by how quickly I've learned to kiteboard. If you're looking for a new water sport, looking to expand your kiteboarding skills, or just want to try something fun while on vacation, check them out. I would recommend Aquasports and their instructors to anyone.
