Owner description: Maui Surfer Girls offers the best surf lessons and surf camps on Maui. Our surf school caters to small groups, families and newlyweds, with small class sizes and professional instructors (most of whom are female!) We started in 2001 with our summer surf camps for teenage girls, with a mission to build self-confidence through the sport of surfing. We quickly branched out to offer year-round surf lesson to men and women, and kids starting at age 5! Our teen camps have grown to be extremely popular, and in 2017 we are excited to be offering our women's camps year-round. Please check out website for upcoming camp dates. We look forward to sharing the spirit of aloha with you on Maui’s warm waves.

Looked for a good Maui Surfer School and read that this was the best in Maui! Completely agree! This was the highlight of my daughters' trip. The teachers were fabulous, the beach was beautiful and my girls got up on their boards right away! Loved their dog, so cute! Totally recommend!

Maui Surfer Girls rock!!!

Our son who has ADHD, and was fearful of trying to surf again due to a spill he took 3 years ago during a surf lesson, nevertheless went out and tried surfing again all because of Dustin's calming influence, experience and patience. <3

Thank you Dustin for turning around our son's fear and having him see that he could get up and what a wonderful sport surfing can be!

We will be back!!

My two kids took surfing lessons from an instructor named Sharky. The preferred surfing location east of Lahaina that day was experiencing high winds from the mountains, so the class was moved for safety reasons to a spot closer to Lahaina. It was good to know that safety was a top priority. After about 20 minutes of on land instruction, Sharky took his class of four into the water and worked with each student one by one, and everyone is his class was successful in getting up quickly.

Sharky combined instruction with humor to help calm his new students, and everyone in his class had nothing but good things to say about him. Although the lesson was supposed to last two hours, Sharky stayed out longer in the water to offset the travel time from the first location to the second location and made sure everyone got the time that was paid for (and actually went a little longer).

My son had taken lessons on a previous trip from another company that chose a surfing location in Lahaina, and the one issue there was how crowded the surfing location was with multiple companies using the same area. Maui Surfer girls chooses areas outside of Lahaina that are less crowded, and from a safety perspective that does make a big difference.

My husband, son, and I wanted to take surf lessons for the first time. Going with Maui Surfer Girls was a great choice! Kudos to Sharky and Jedi who were patient with the three of us especially our son! We loved the location and small individualized class size. We all were able to get up on our boards thanks to Sharky and Jedi! Thanks for the wonderful experience!

Our patient, knowledgeable, instructor Carole made us believe that if two middle-aged, out of shape, people tried hard enough, we could do it. And we did. When we return to Maui we will take some more instruction from the great people at Maui Surfer Girls.
