Maui Surf Lesson Info


Your Maui surf lesson will focus on water-safety, proper surf technique, surfing style and etiquette. We assure that you will be in the water almost right away. The surf instruction will be authentic Maui-style “chill,” intertwined with a thoughtful focus to help you meet your surfing goals. We guarantee that you will stand up, catch a wave, and will leave the beach as a certified surfer.

Maui Surf Lesson Plan


Your personalized Maui surf lesson includes a 10-15 minute water safety briefing, a demonstration on paddling techniques, tips on how to get into waves, and of course, how to stand and stay standing up! We want you to feel as comfortable as possible on your surfboard prior to getting in the water and this briefing gives you time to ask any surfing related questions you may have. After paddling out to the break together, your surf instructor will be there to coach and guide you into the waves. Their focus in the water will be on your safety as well as proper wave etiquette, surfing style, and technique.
