“paddle board leson”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

Had an amazing time paddle boarding with these guys. Justin was our instructor, way mellow and fun. Will do this again. We had our lesson early in the morning, like 7:30, reserved the group rate but there were only 3 of us. Justin was clear and directive on how to handle the board and paddle. It was a blast and worth the cash.

“Great Experience”
Reviewed January 16, 2014 via mobile

My 7 year old daughter and I had a group lesson with Todd and Akima. There instruction was great and they had us up on waves right away. They were very professional and patient. The waves were nice and the water was shallow enough that my daughter was not intimidated. Thumbs up.

“Great surfing school experience”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

We did a semi-private lesson with these guys this week while in Maui (Lahaina). It was a great experience from start to finish. We were able to get up on the boards right away, and we had a blast surfing for about 2 hours in the smaller waves. One nice thing is we get a 2-hour free use of the boards which we will use tomorrow to surf near the office. Our instructor (Sonny B.) was great and we had a very positive experience.

“Awesome Lesson!”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

I was determined to surf while in Hawaii, and decided to give MWR a call a day in advance. The shop is right off Front St and a short walk to the beach, there is a fairly large (free) parking lot across the street. We had a small group of 5, which was a nice size. Our instructor, Justin, was awesome! He gave us a quick lesson on the beach and got us all up on our boards in the water. The shop supplies you with everything you need, they even have a photographer to take pictures that you can purchase afterwards (I believe it was $25 for one person, and $45 for a couple). They also give you a ‘surftificate’ and hat when you complete the lesson! We all has a great time and I would highly recommend it for beginner surfers!

“A Must try while in Maui”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

We booked a semi-pvt lesson with MWR Lahaina. Sonny was our instructor and did a great job. I took my 2 young kids. It was a first time for all us. After a quick lesson it was time for the waves. It was a great fun. The kids picked it up in no time. The water is pretty shallow and the waves were perfect for beginners.
You can also get professional photos taken, which makes you look like a pro on the board or falling off!!! Aloha.
