A good fun time had by all. Our lesson was simple and then we paddled out and back. Kids enjoyed it and picked up SUP pretty quickly. The check in was a bit messy in that we spent a fair amount of time waiting for the instructor to sort out paddles and boards. Maybe a better way to sit out... More

My 9 year old daughter and I had a blast doing our first-ever surf lesson with Todd. He was a great teacher and kept my slightly nervous daughter relaxed with his jokes. We all got up on our first (and subsequent) rides. We had so much fun! Would highly recommend them.

We just have had our second lesson with Maui Wave Riders. Our first experience was a surfing lesson two years ago and last week we did the SUP lesson with Chyna. Both lessons were great with instructors who intent on making you succeed with good instruction and also ensuring you have a good time. The whole staff was very friendly... More

The one thing my seventeen year old daughter wanted to do during our vacation, was to take a surf lesson. We booked a 7:30am class for mid-week, and showed up at 7:15am as instructed. The instructors were there to greet us as soon as we walked up. The check in process was quick, and my daughter found a rash guard... More

London family: two adults and two daughters ages 9 and 6 - all had an excellent time! Instruction good and clear focusing on building confidence for the kids and getting them up surfing waves immediately. Location and long waves great for learning. All the kit was good. Our girls loved the morning with our two private instructors and said it... More

I purchased a gift certificate for a private surf lesson for my 16 year old son's birthday. We had no problem making a reservation upon our arrival in Maui. My son was hooked up with Freddy for his lesson. Freddy took care of him as if he was his own son. He took his time, gave him undivided attention, and... More

My husband and 3 teens took the group lesson. Busy start but once with the group took a few lessons on shore and then soon on the water. Each had fun and were able to ride the waves. Expensive pictures but bought the cd because we wanted pictures of each standing on they board.
