I am a doughy 50-year-old whose main role in family adventures is to cheer and take the photos. Upon discovering that my girls (8 and 12) believed my favourite exertion was shopping, it became clear we -- all of us -- needed to learn to surf. Rivers to the Sea doesn't have as many reviews as a couple other places.... More

I am an experienced surfer. Whenever I paddle out in a new location, I like to "take a lesson" in order to have the local knowledge with me so that I am aware of underwater hazards, rip tides, etc. Rivers to the Sea was recommended by the concierge at our hotel. We met at the beach. They were on time... More

My 8 year old daughter wanted surf lessens more then anything. We found Rivers By The Sea and could not have been happier. She had absolutely had no experience and she came away confident and feeling like she was a pro. I would recommend Rivers By The Sea to all my friends!!

We did a family surf lesson. It was perfect. The instruction was phenomenal and we all got up on our boards many times.

This was the second time I had booked with Rivers to the Sea. The first time was amazing and the second time even better. We booked a semi-private lesson and Tide made sure our experience was memorable. Through his expert guidance and assistance both of us were able to ride the waves.

3 of us decided to take private surfing lessons to start off our week vacation in Maui. After a snafu with Expedia's group lesson rates we met Tide Rivers at the 19 mile marker for an introduction to surfing. None of us had done it before but Tide was able to patiently get each of us riding waves within 90... More

Steve started out by taking us to a beach that had no other surfers and perfect surf! He has a great relaxed, positive instruction style. Fun time!!

Rivers To The Sea was simply awesome. Thanks to Duke's experience and his ability to teach I was surfing within minutes. I would recommend Rivers To the Sea to anyone and will book another lesson when my family returns to Maui.

Tide is an excellent instructor that made learning a joy. My two boys (12&13) and I were a little apprehensive at the beginning of our first ever surfing lesson but Tide immediately put us at ease and made it fun to learn. It turned into the highlight of our week in Maui.
