We had a group of five, none of us had surfed before. Eddie and Gabriel were great instructors! They got everyone in our group surfing and riding waves by the end of the session. Great way of keeping everyone engaged and having a great time. I would highly recommend this company!

Our instructor Eddy is very helpful and friendly. Every one enjoyed the two hours. The wind was a little strong but the water is warm

As a newbie, I appreciated the professionalism and caring provided by Ashley, my instructor. It was a wonderful experience, one I hope to enjoy again soon! They were also very flexible due to the changes in the weather.

My daughter and nephew, both 8 years old, had a semi private lesson. They had no experience surfing at all. The instructor gave them some quick instructions and then they were out in the ocean. They were up on the boards right away and catching waves for and hour and a half. He kept it fun and entertaining for them.... More

Waves at Kihei is a great beginner beach! My wife and I caught our first waves here in our 50's. 🏄🏄‍♀️ Kaylin had fun and we got some great pictures. Aloha!
