Thanks to K and Abner, we had everyone in our party surfing in no time. Their easy-to-learn method coupled with the location made for a very good first time experience! Everyone involved in the operation was friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!

We had semi private lessons with them and enjoyed it very much. Last time we took group lessons from another surfing school and did not get anything out of it. Hang loose has great staff but most important great instructors for affordable price. Only draw back they do not make any pictures of you surfing.

Aloha!

Thank you for leaving a great review. I do apologize for not offering a photographer to capture your great surfing adventure with us. I will personally make sure my staff is asking everyone if they would like a photographer because we do have some of the most dedicated and caring photographers on Maui. If you guys come back to surf with us I would like to pay for your pictures free of charge! Mahalo from Abner!

Our 16 year old daughter Crystal wanted to take her very first surfing lesson on our vacation to Hawaii. We just happened to find the great folks at Hang Loose while we were walking around Lahaina, and from the very first interaction with Abner and his wife to the amazing time Crystal had with her instructor Kelena, it was an all around great experience. When we initially found them, Abner and his wife were eating lunch and we felt bad for disturbing them, but they didn't seem to mind at all. They were extremely helpful in helping us plan Crystal's surfing lesson for early the next morning so we could still keep our other plans for the day in check, and they explained to us where we could go to watch the lesson. When we arrived the next morning, Abner and Kelena were there, and Kelena started teaching Crystal about safety and how to maneuver on the surf board right away. When it was time to take it to the water, we went to the seawall where they told us we would be able to watch, and it was a great spot - we had a birds eye view of everything! Kelena was wonderful with Crystal, very patient and supportive, and so enthusiastic and encouraging....he was cheering her on the whole time she was riding the waves! It was an extremely successful lesson, and she enjoyed herself so much that the time flew by so fast! We will definitely return for another visit on our next trip to Maui! The price was extremely reasonable, and the hospitality was priceless. Thank you to Abner and Kelena for the wonderful vacation memories!

This is a family owned business! My daughter(11yr) and my husband went surfing with Boola. They had so much fun that they decided to go for another lesson with him the next day. They both really learnt quite a bit! There prices are VERY good. No complains...all praises for them!

The folks at Hang Loose Surf Club are just what we were looking for in a surf experience! These local guys have a great location right in the heart of Lahina town, mere steps from the surf spot that they grew up surfing themselves.
We had so much fun in our lesson, that we went back another day and rented surf boards. All the people in the shop were welcoming and encouraging, and our instructor even gave us more surf tips as we were standing around the shop- so friendly!
Bottom line, Hang Loose Surf Club is an awesome Hawaiian-owned small business, and they made it so fun and easy to support them! This is the only surf school we will attend on Maui, and we can't wait to go back. Thanks, Bula, Abner, Kalena, Sarah, and everyone at Hang Loose Surf Club, you guys are da bomb!!
