Maui Surf School Location
GUARDRAILS, West Shore Maui
Your Maui surf lesson will take place at the west shore surf break, "Guardrails". Guardrails is located at Mile Marker 19 off Highway 30 (Honopi’ilani Highway), just 5-10 minutes south of Lahaina and Ka’anapali Resorts, and 25 minutes away from Kihei, Makena, and Wailea Resorts.
This secluded surf break is ideal for beginner and intermediate surfers because of its gentle, sloping, long waves that break in clear water, close to the shore. It also has a white sandy beach with a generous amount of shade for family members or friends who wish to watch or snorkel along the beach during your lesson.
