Excellent surf lesson for first-timers
Rachel_K, Mar 2024
We started our honeymoon off strong with these lessons with James and Church! It was our first time surfing, and we had an absolute blast. We received great instruction from James and enthusiastic motivation from Church, as evidenced by us managing to catch our first waves and stand up on the board very early into the lesson. By the end of the lesson, my husband and I shared a board together with Church on one last epic wave. Thank you James and Church for an unforgettable experience! (A tip from us to future students: wear something that covers your knees, and bring a waterproof camera)
Unique and memorable experience!

Fantastic morning with James and Church, first time surfing and a day we will never forget! I lost count of how many times my daughter rode the waves in with Church and on her own, she can't stop talking about it.
Maui must do!

If you are in Maui surfing with Church is a must! James and Church make surfing easy. You can tell how much Church loves to be in the water surfing and swimming. Church is definitely a Kihei celebrity. They are an impressive duo! This was the highlight of our trip!!
