    Mile Marker 19 off Highway 30 (Honopi'ilani Highway), two miles south of Lahaina at a surf spot known to locals as 'Guardrails.'

Directions: From Lahaina/Kaanapali/Kapalua resort areas: Drive two miles south of Lahaina on Highway 30 Honoapiiliani Highway. Look for Puamana Beach Park on the ocean side. The meeting location is called 'Guardrails,' which is located 500 yards past Puamana Beach Park, on the ocean side, exactly across from mile marker 19 off of Highway 30 Honoapiiliani Highway. There is a little gravel parking lot to park. The instructor will be at this location 10 minutes prior to the start time of the surf lesson. Check in 10 minutes early at 'Guardrails' surf spot, Mile Marker 19, Highway 30 (Honopi’ilani Hwy).

Highlight of our trip to Maui
Bob_G, Feb 2024
Our guide was patient and knowledgeable. My wife and I are senior citizens and have never surfed before. But yet we each caught a wave and rode it to the shore. The experience was very tiring, but well worth the time and energy. Definitely a highlight of our Maui vacation!
Great Time!!
Jenny_W, Feb 2024
Me and my fiancé had the best time learning to surf from Eric who has been surfing his entire life. Great instructor! I have never been on any kind of board before but he had me up on the board my 2nd try. Something I never thought I’d be able to do. Thanks Eric!
Great time!
Erika_M, Feb 2024
This was our first time surfing in Maui and we had a blast learning with Izzy, she’s a great instructor. She was very friendly, chill, nice and she didn’t let us quit until we were able to get a wave.
Eric was so patient and...

Eric was so patient and kind with my 8 year old son. It was a great experience for both of us. We were late because of a traffic accident and Eric was still generous with his time. We would do it again in a heartbeat. Thank you!
Exceeded our expectations
Phil_K, Jul 2023
This was an amazing experience and it far exceeded our expectations. The surf lesson could have been a bust if not for the great customer care that the tour operators showed to us. The weather was not good and they advised that we could cancel with a full refund or reschedule to another time. Our two girls - both 16 years old - decided to give it a try even though it was pretty windy conditions. They had a fabulous instructor, Izzy, who treated them with patience and warm kindness. The first half hour of the lesson was difficult because it was really windy and neither of the girls had ever been on a surfboard. Izzy continued to work with them helping out when the wind made things tough. Pretty soon the wind started to die down a little and Izzy had both girls riding waves all the way into the shore. The girls loved it. It's hard to imagine a tour of any kind that would top this experience. So grateful for Izzy and the Private Surf Lesson for Two.

Very friendly instructor. The kids had a great time. Location could be a little better (parking is limited), but no fault of the company.
Amazing experience
Ida_L, Jun 2023
Super awesome instructor and company. We had a kid with altitude sickness from a hike we did the day before, and Tide was kind enough to help us arrange it so we can come back later with the cousins in a few days. The other person in our party still went and she was able to catch her very first wave! We are coming back soon. Highly recommended!
Riding the waves
Stephanie_A, Jun 2023
There was a little fear in trying this. My husband talked me into it and I would do it again. It was fun. Our instructor Kody was patient and encouraging. It felt very satisfying when I actually was able to stand when riding a wave. We were extremely happy with the experience.
Perfect experience!
Shauna_T, May 2023
We did a private lesson with Kody and had such a great time! He was very communicative in the days leading up to our lesson, to align on location (we surfed in a different spot to take advantage of good conditions) and make sure we knew what to expect. The morning of the lesson, he dropped a pin so we could find him more easily, and we were able to start our lesson right away. Kody's instruction was clear and actionable, and my husband and I felt comfortable getting in the water almost right away. He gave us plenty of pointers for getting over and through the wave sets, and let us know what to expect/how we could conserve energy. I appreciated that we were able to rest when we needed and then jump right back in. There were even a few other surfers around who were all very nice and helpful—such a great community! Under Kody's instruction and thoughtful corrections after each run, we were both able to stand up on our boards! Definitely would recommend this experience to anyone, and would absolutely do it again ourselves!
Super Surf lessons
Sean_R, Apr 2023
Kody the instructor was amazing, he was so patient with our kids and got both of them up surfing. Our kids had so much fun and were so proud of themselves for catching a wave. Kody’s communication was great, he texted the morning of the lesson and told us we were changing meeting places so our kids could catch bigger and better waves. We could not be happier.
Izzy was a great teacher
Steve_M, Mar 2023
Izzy was a great teacher. Taught a 47 year old, 15 year old and 11 year old all how to surf with no problems and lots of fun.
Better then I could of imagined
Sarah_P, Mar 2023
My husband and I got to cross this off our bucket list. We’re 40+ and with Kodys teaching skills we were both able to catch a few waves and both of us got up at least 3-4 times. We would do it again in a heartbeat.
Sharky is the BEST!
Charles_B, Jan 2023
We did I private surf lesson with Sharky and he was Amazing! It was the first time for me and my wife and we both were able to catch several waves with Sharky’s help. He was awesome!

Kevin_T, Sep 2022
Our instructor was amazing! He is clearly an extremely experienced surfer and was able to use his expertise to ensure that even the most apprehensive of beginners is able to catch a wave! This was a great way to start our vacation and set the pace for high adventures all trip!
I'm still sore.
Chester_M, Sep 2022
Both my wife and I had a fantastic experience! Day to day surf conditions may differ and our instructor texted us the morning of to inform us of a location change for our lesson. Stephanie, our instructor, was able to bring us up to speed on all the basics quickly. My wife and I were first-time surfers and with Stephanie's guidance, both my wife and I were able to stand up on our boards and ride most of the way to shore on our first try! Make sure you eat way in advance for these lessons. Eat some bananas! Paddling out to sea was one of the most grueling experiences and I almost gave up several times because my arms were just exhausted. Stephanie also assisted by towing my wife further away from the shore after her arms gave out which was greatly appreciated. The only con for me was that my arms were not conditioned for the exercise. If I were able to paddle to sea faster, would have been able to catch more waves, have more fun and maybe also be less sore.
Matt_S, Aug 2022
A great day with Sharky! The boys had a great time. Would recommend to anybody that wants to surf. Sharky!!!
