My father-in-law received a gift certificate for a paddle board lesson and couldn't have had a better time learning than he did with Ina! Ina was patient and wanted everyone in the class to succeed.

My two children (23, 20) got a semi-private lesson in Maui. They had never surfed before but rode many waves a long way. The instructor was excellent, explained things on land first, and then made sure they got up almost immediately. The beach and waves were perfect to learn. A highlight of our trip. They sold us photos that were... More

The staff was very friendly and Al was the perfect instructor. He was very patient and fun with the kids. We had 5 kids aged 8-16 and one who was scared. Al had her in the water before the lesson was over. He even let the adults try even though we were not on the reservation. We felt spoiled and... More

My wife and I took a group surfing lesson from Kekoa W at Mauii Wave Riders Kehei and had a great time. The lesson was supposed to be 6 students to one instructor, but the others didn't show so we got the instructor to ourselves. We started at 7:30 (early morning recommended to avoid crowds and to get better waves).... More

Basically, if you can't get up you get your money back. As they say, everyone can surf. We booked a private lesson for my husband and had Ola as his instructor. Ola was really good. There is also a photographer who takes shots you can purchase after. We bought them because it's maybe the only time he'll surf so we... More

Visited Maui Wave Riders while on vacation. I had a two hour lesson with the instructor Kekoa. From sign in to the end of the session it was a wonderful experience. Kekoa ensured I was safe and had plenty of fun. I was up and riding in no time! I liked how they had a photographer out there. I bought... More

We took the 7:30am surf lesson with Al. He was awesome! It was my first time surfing and he made sure that both my husband and I had a great time. By the end of the lesson we were catching our own waves! You could really tell that he knew what he was doing.. even other surfing instructors were asking... More

Our family took semi private lessons, first my wife and our son (12 years) and then me and our daughter (7 years). This was our first time to try surfing and thanks to the teachers we learned to surf and had a great time.

My husband and 10 year old son took lessons. It was the first time surfing for both of them. My son is not super adventurous so was hesitant but ended up loving and it and talking about his experience for the rest of the day. Their instructor was Kekoa, who they loved. He was extremely friendly and patient. He gave... More
