If you are in the mood for shaved ice, look no further then Surf Ripper. The service and hospitality was unsurpassed anywhere in Maui. Not to mention the "Best Shaved Ice" Ever. Can't wait to visit next time we are in Maui.

We tried 6-7 different shaved ice places on different islands and this was one of our favorites. The service was excellent and the shave ice was delicious. We would definitely come here again if in the area and recommend to anyone to stop by here.
