We had a surf lesson for our 8-year-old son today with Filipe (sp?). Our instructor was amazing. Our son has autism and we were a little concerned about how it would go but our instructor couldn't have been better. Patient, fun, kind not to mention knowledgable. We really appreciated our morning with you guys! Thanks so much.

Our two teens wanted a bit of surfing experience so we booked them a beginner lesson with Waves in Kihei. Since it was off-season, they were the only ones in the group that morning so they got great personal instruction. The instructor was very friendly and able to show them where to catch the waves. They provided rashies and reef... More

Felipe (i think i spelled that right) was perfect! i wish i could have booked a second round to go to bigger waves with him. I stood up the first time. Very cool guy, and we were lucky it wasnt to crowded we were able to take as many waves as i wanted to. Thank you !

My two adult children and I learned how to surf for the first time, immediately. The instructor was exceptional, understood how to teach, was motivational and patient. An amazing experience that we weren't sure we wanted to do, until we tried. All three of us enjoyed it immensely and would do it again. Highly recommend this company!

Researched surfing lessons near Wailea for grandchildren 12 and 14 during April 2017. They are both excellent swimmers and have surfed before. All reviews for Waves Hawaii Surf School were excellent and signed up for a semi-private lessons for the grandchildren. Couldn't have been happier with the company. Eddie was an excellent instructor and pushed the kids to try and... More

This is the best surfing school in Maui. The instructor was awesome and very easy to understand. My fiance and I loved every minute of our lesson. She was suffering within the first 30 min.

My 3 kids ages 11, 14, 16 took multiple days of lessons. Roque was great with each of them giving them something new to master as they progressed. Having taken lessons from other outfits in Maui I can say hands down that Waves Hawaii has them beat. They connected with each of my kids and weren't just going through the... More
