Aloha and Welcome to Skim Hawaii. Maui, Kauai and Oahu's premiere skimboard and surf school! Since 2000, Skim Hawaii's owner Sean McClenahan and his instructors have been mentoring locals and tourists helping them to achieve their skimboarding and surfing goals. Here in Hawaii the beaches are a lot steeper and tend to have a heavy shorebreak that takes a different approach than what people are used to. Learn how to track swell and tides, drop the board properly, ride waves back to shore, airs, shuvits, 360's and more! We offer lessons for all skill levels. Whether you're a beginner to an advanced rider, Skim Hawaii has got you covered. Come down and learn from professional sponsored riders! Also inquire about our outer island skimboarding excursions.

All my son wanted to do when we were in Maui was skimboard. We were leaving in 3 days and didn't really see any skimboards around our entire stay there. Our hotel suggested Skim Hawaii so I called Sean. He was absolutely the greatest. We...More

I have been to Maui a few times and grew up skimboarding on the beaches in Cabo. Sean has hands down the best skim rentals on the island. They are better boards than any other shop around and he has the best prices to boot....More

Sean is a real pro. He had our two young kids skimmimg down the beach in no time at all. He also had great quality boards to meet the conditions so the experience is more fun. Definitely recommended and will use Skim Hawaii again!
