Maui Lahaina Group Surf Lesson

1. Maui Lahaina Group Surf Lesson

During your visit to Hawaii, the birthplace of surfing, take a great opportunity to learn how to surf. Experience the calm waters of West Maui which offer perfect conditions for beginner surfers. Take part in a group lesson with a maximum of 5 surfers, which means you will have a ton of opportunity to learn from your professional surf instructor. Before you start, get you geared up with a surfboard, long-sleeve UV rash guards, and water shoes. Leave everything you do not want to get wet or whatever that does not float in the cubicles provided at the surf shop. On the beach, have a brief 15-minute 'land lesson' to go over safety measures and procedures. When your group is ready, head into the water to get started. Each surfer has their own turn to ride a wave and learn to surf. After your wave is complete, you will head back to the designated waiting area until the instructor signals for your turn again. The first few rides usually take some time, but it starts to move faster once everyone starts to get the hang of things. As an added bonus, there will be a professional photographer taking close up shots throughout your lesson.  The group surf lesson is 2 hours in total from the time you leave the surf shop to when your instructor signals you back in from the water. If you do finish early, there is a beach to sit on and wait until the rest of your class is done. Once the class is over, everyone will carry their surfboards back to the shop and then head back to the beach to shower off in fresh water. Return all your surf gear back to the shop and have an opportunity to check out your surf lesson photos which are available for purchase.

What people are saying about Kaanapali

We had a great time at our surf lesson with Steve! There were a total of 5 “students” and that allowed for lots of 1:1 time and several attempts at catching waves. We also paid for the pictures, which was worth it for the lols. Would recommend for an easy 1/4 day activity

Our instructor was awesome! Super helpful, friendly, and encouraging. My brother and I were able to surf at least a dozen long waves with zero prior experience—best part of our trip so far!

We were lucky due to a cancellation to get a private flight and Jake the pilot was extremely professional and informative. What an amazing ride. Worth every penny!

Beautiful, exciting, and riveting. Instead of moving to another planet , let's safe the God given beauty we have.

The tour guy was knowledgeable and funny. The sites were breathtaking. Excellent company and service!
