Fantastic first surfing experience for all
Mike was our instructor and he was so great. So patient with the kids. We had a 5 and 6 year old. Our whole group had a lot of fun and caught a lot of waves. He stop he brought us was great. Good for adults to surf but also shallow enough for the kids to stand up. I wish it would have been longer. We didn’t wanna leave.

Family fun!

We were all able to stand up & catch waves by the end of the lesson. Our instructor “Turtle” gave us each different tasks to help us individually become better surfers. Loved the encouragement from all the beginners (and instructors) out on the water.

We were first time surfer, and I laugh because on our way to our two hour lesson we joked that we would have to practice getting up on the board on the grass for an hour before getting into the water. (Watch too many movies) However, that was not the case, of course we did practice that for a max of five minutes. Ashley was great with our group! She offered helpful suggestions to how we could improve in the water; both my husband and I were more than 60% successful paddling and riding out the wave!
Great time, we would definitely come back to rent boards!

Our daughter had an incredible morning with these guys! I believe her instructors name was Shawn and he was fun and helped her get up on her board several times. The place was super laid back and relaxed, which was awesome after dealing with “the virus” and it’s effect on everyone.

Great Instruction and Location for Surf Newbies
This was so awesome! I fulfilled my 13 year old dream (at age 30) to get an intro to surfing. Mike, the instructor, was great! His goal is to get everyone plenty of time standing and catching waves. It is shallow enough that you can stand at any point and is truly a wonderful location for beginners. You can go back the next day, rent a board, and feel confident you can catch a wave on your own. Also, make sure you go to 1993 Kihei Road. I showed up to the wrong location, sorry fellow classmates, but they still accommodated me no issues once I drove over to the right location. Sebastian is on sight to take some action photos as well so don’t be afraid to take a peak and get some souvenirs. He makes everyone look like a pro!

Fun Morning
Great experience. The beach is great for beginners, waves were not huge but manageable. Mike, our instructor, was great at teaching and assisting everyone. The group was about six people, and everyone was able to stand up at one point or another.

They also had a photographer come with us, and he got some great shots.

Great place with friendly and helpful employees. You get out surfing in no time and they help you and guide you when needed. You can go at your own pace. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip!

Helpful Staff make a great team for teaching surfing
Aug 2021
The winds were pretty high (20-30 mph) at 10am on the day we went, so it was difficult for the kids to walk their boards out to catch the waves. But the staff was super helpful and determined to make it the best experience for them. All three of our kids were pooped but all said they had a great time. Mahalo!

Hang Loose Within Two Hours!!
Aug 2021
I didn't surf but my teen did. I can speak about the booking and atmosphere. The on water experience is from my teen. The instructors were helpful and encouraging. There were 4 people to 1 instructor. He was helpful with finding the right spot to get started.

My athletic teen was indeed surfing after the 2nd attempt to get up on the board. The waves were small and calm. The water is shallow enough to stand up in it. There were a lot of people out there learning to surf from the different surf shops.

The cheering section of family and friends hung out at the edge of the park with excellent views. If you have a long telephoto lens, you'll definitely get some good candid shots. If not, there were water photographers out there snapping pics. You can look at them and opt to purchase them for $45 for all of the pics, not just one. My teen had about 48 pics. Not all were Insta-worthy but nonetheless, I was happy to have them.

There are Venmo options to tip the instructors. Yes, don't forget to tip them!! They're working hard out there. Thank you for a memorable experience!!
