GREETINGS FROM TIDE
Surfing on Maui is such an amazing experience and one of my greatest pleasures is to be able to share that experience with you.
It is so cool to see people get up on a surfboard for their first time and catch a wave. To see the same joy on their face that I feel when I’m out in the water.
Our goal is to make sure you’re not just learning how to surf, but have it be one of those highlight moments of your life. Hope to see you soon!
As four first-time surfers, we all LOVED this experience. We all were able to surf and couldn't imagine our visit to Maui without this being a part of it! Wonderful and knowledgeable instructors who far exceeded our expectations.

WHY CHOOSE RIVERS TO THE SEA FOR YOUR SURF LESSONS?
Surf Lessons - 15 Years in Service
Rivers To The Sea (RTTS) was started by Maui born and raised twins Tide and Kiva Rivers over 15 years ago. When friends came over from the mainland, Tide and Kiva would often take them out to some of their favorite surf spots and teach them how to surf.
Seeing how much they, and even more so, their friends enjoyed the whole experience, a light bulb went off and Rivers To The Sea was born. And unlike other activities companies, their sole focus was on surfing lessons. It was the first exclusive surf school on Maui.
Beautiful Surf Location
One of the things that sets RTTS apart from other surf schools is their location. Growing up on Maui, Tide and Kiva have had the chance to explore just about every surf spot on Maui. Their goal was to find the best location for both first time and experienced surfers... and they found it! They take you to a surf break easy enough for beginner surfers to catch, with a nice, comfortable ride and away from crowded surf spots. KAWABUNGA! Less people in the water = less pressure + more waves to catch. Yes, without a doubt... this is THE best place to learn how to surf on Maui.
Permitted and Licensed
It may come as a surprise, but many of the surf lesson companies on Maui are not legally permitted and licensed.
RTTS went through the rigorous process of meeting all the requirements set by the state of Hawaii for ocean water activities and is one of only two surf lesson companies on Maui licensed to operate in a secluded surf break away from highly crowded surf venues.
Surf Lessons- Setting a Higher Bar
Tide and Kiva knew they were incredibly lucky to be able to do something they loved as their livelihood, so they wanted to make sure they did everything they could for it to succeed. In their minds, the best way to do that was to have happy, satisfied customers. Read a few of our Reviews.
From the very beginning to this day, this has been their philosophy. Do what they could to make sure everyone leaves stoked and thrilled with their surf lesson experience. Every area, from surf location, to surf instructors, to equipment, to service, is looked at with these questions in mind, “What can we do to make it a better experience? What can we do to set the bar a little bit higher?”
