We visited Hawaii for 2 weeks. My girls (13 and 11) wanted to take a surf lesson in Maui. I found a good deal with groupon with Hang Loose. Abner, the owner, was very responsive on the phone and answered all my questions. When we arrived at the shop in Lahaina we were greeted warmly. Abner made my kids feel... More

A great time learning to surf with Hang Loose. Kevin is a great instructor - so great we signed up for a second lesson. Abner and his wife are lovely people, so kind when I booked the lesson for the wrong day! It was one of the trip highlights. I highly recommend booking with them.

We booked a family of four for a 2 hour surfing lesson not having any idea what to expect and never having surfed. Our 11 year old (boy) we expected to take to it and have fun - but my husband and I and 14 year old daughter were more skeptical. We were so wrong. Our instructor Kevin couldn't have... More

My family of 4 had the best time surfing with Abner! He couldn't have been kinder or more patient. This was BY FAR the highlight of our trip. Wish we would have done it sooner so we could have gone again. The surf area was crowded, and I was worried how that'd go down, but all the instructors using the... More

I purchased a lesson at Hang Loose Surf Club on Groupon and was very impressed by the surf lesson I received here. I've taken surfing lessons in Australia and Huntington Beach, California, and this was by far the best. The lesson is given in small groups and the instructor works one-on-one with each individual to help them surf and be... More

My family took a semi-private lesson with Benny at 8:30 am. My three sons are 13, 10, and 7, and I am 40. I was concerned about how my seven year old would do, so the owner, Abner, suggested we do the semi private lesson with the four of us. Benny was a great teacher. We started on the sand... More

Totally fine experience - surfing was fun. Kevin was a good instructor. When we arrived we were told that we could upgrade to a private lesson for an additional $35pp. I think they should have been a little more clear about why this was a good option. There were a total of 6 in our group which meant we had... More

We're glad you had a great time surfing with Kevin! We apologize for the miscommunication and that we were not clear enough on the details of a private vs. group lesson. We wish we would have known how you felt before you left, so we could have rectified the situation immediately. Thank you for recommending our private lessons to our... More

My wife and I tried surfing for the first time with Abner as our instructor. We had a great time. We were both able to stand on the board on our first attempt because of Abner's great coaching. The area they coach in is perfect for beginners. Long, easy waves with shallow water. Their facilities are clean and accessible. We... More

My husband and I booked last minute and everyone was wonderful! All of our interactions were heartfelt and amazing. They provided the surf board, rash guard and shoes which is the start of what you need to learn. Our instructor went above an beyond to make sure we had a fabulous time and were able to stand up. He helped... More
