I LOVED it !! They accommodated a last-minute request and I ended up getting a private lesson at the group price -- just the way it all worked out. The instructor made it so simple! And, it was! I stood on my very first attempt. Would recommend and would repeat.

Took the whole family surfing with Eddy the day before Thanksgiving. He did a great job working with all of us regardless of each persons ability and experience. He was very patient with some and able to really coach others that have progressed faster. Had such a good time a few of us went back the day after and surfed... More

Wanted to thank all of the Trip Advisor reviewers on this one. My wife and I signed up with Waves Hawaii for our first surfing lesson. Our first booking was rained out unfortunately but Val helped reschedule our lesson for our last day on Maui and the weather was perfect! Upon meeting up by the Waves Hawaii truck in the... More

My boyfriend and I were on vacation on Maui and we thought it would be a great time to learn how to surf. The meeting spot was fairly easy to find and there was plenty of parking as well as places to eat across the street after our surf lesson. Ashley was great and made it easy to catch on.... More

It's taken awhile for me to get to this as my GF and I were in Maui for a wedding in April of this year. That said I wanted to check writing this review off the list as I know how much the trip advisor reviews have helped me make decisions in the past and so I figured another review... More

Trip Advisor reviews were right on. Waves is a well-run organization. After booking online, the check-in process was really simple. My twin 11 year old boys had an instructor named Doug who was super laid back and got them surfing really quickly. They caught plenty of waves during their two hour lesson. Semi-private lesson is highly recommended for younger kids... More

My wife and I booked a group lesson with Waves Hawaii based on good reviews. Since October is a slower month, we were able to book a spot within 24 hours. Our instructor, Justus, arrived early and was prepared to start upon our arrival. The lesson was fantastic. ..Justus had us up and surfing and having a blast!!! There were... More

These guys did a great job ensuring safety as well as making sure my husband (first time surfer) was able to catch a few waves, and made sure that I (more experienced) caught a few big waves to have a story to bring home! They also have a terrific photographer that takes crystal clear pictures to document your experience!

My wife and I booked the private surf safari as part of our honeymoon and had an amazing time. Although our experience levels differed, she had only surfed a few times prior and I had been surfing on and off for 14 years, we both had a blast. The instructors were professional, friendly, and very attentive. The customer service prior... More
