Booked a lesson for my husband and my son it was our first time on the water. We just thought the instructor would rather be somewhere else. He was nice and everything but just seemed disinterested.

We had the best time surfing for the first time through Maui Waveriders. The Cove in Kihei is the perfect place to learn and our instructor Al was super chill and helpful. We spent a short time out of the water going over the basics...More

If you want the full surfing experience with stoned instructors and all this is the place. I'm sure most companies are the same but our instructor Justin was preparing for his future cancer treatment by smoking tons of weed. Our kids didn't seem to mind...More

Aloha, we are disappointed and offended by your claim about stoned instructors. We aren't sure where this idea came from, could be the red surfer eyes (which is in fact from being in the sun and salt water all day).... possibly the laid back life...More

Kekoa was a fantastic instructor and taught my 3 & 4 year olds how to surf! They had never done it and the kids were so happy!

These guys are THE BEST! Kekoa was FABULOUS with our son (15) and nephew (11). Our nephew was hesitant about going and Kekoa was great explaining everything to him and got him out in the water and up on his first wave! Both boys LOVED...More
