My boyfriend surprised me with surf lessons for the two of us. We did a private 2 hr lesson with Eli and I was up surfing on my 1st wave! My boyfriend, a first time surfer, was up on his second wave! After 30 minutes we were surfing the same wave at the same time : ) What a photo opportunity! There was also a photographer taking pictures which were available for purchase after our lesson. We purchased the CD, totally worth the $35. It happened to be my birthday and the surf instructors surprised me with birthday cupcakes after our lesson. What a birthday and great surfing experience. Our instructor Eli was personable and relaxed, yet professional. He made the instruction simple and easy to understand. He offered helpful suggestions while in the water with us. He got us informed and out catching waves within minutes! Thank you Eli!!!

Sascha had my husband and step daughter surfing so fast it was amazing. They had a great time and we went back the next day to rent a board and try on our own. They used what Sascha had taught them and almost had me up on the board. It was a blast. The whole crew out on the first day were great and the photo cd we bought from Bruce had some really great shots. Best beach days on the whole vacation.

I would like to thank Carlos and the rest of Maui Beach Boys for doing such a great job! This has been on my "bucket list" and for my birthday, my wife got me these surfing lessons. Absolutely the Best! We loved it. Carlos was very good at telling us exactly what we needed to do and what we needed to work on. Great time and would highly recommend Maui Beach Boys to anyone wanting to check off the subject of learning to surf, off their list. Thanks again Carlos, Will and Shawna

We stayed in Lahaina and decided to drive about 20 min up the coast to hang out with Maui Beach boys. We were so pleased with that decision. We have a 7 10 and 12 year old and they had a blast. We watched some lessons that took place in Lahaina and they didn't look near as little kid friendly as the location with Maui beach boys. The main difference being the depth of the water. My 7 year old could touch everywere we were with our boards. That made us all feel safe. My 7 year old was the first one to pop up and surf right in. The instructors were very helpful and very careful. A great family adventure and a fantastic memory.

My husband and I took surfing lessons during our honeymoon. It was one of the highlights of our trip! Our instructor, Carlos, was fantastic. He made the lesson incredibly fun and was a great teacher. We highly recommend him!
