My granddaughters thoroughly enjoyed the lessons and after a few tries were able to ride a wave all the way to the beach.
Wild adventure for fam of three wild boys

Amazing experience for the first day of our Maui vacation. Instructors Nic and Carlos were knowledgeable, fun, and patient with our three kids, and our lesson was the perfect length for learning, growing comfortable on the boards, and riding lots of (tiny) waves. Check-in and payment were a breeze, and the professional photography was a major treat at the end of the day. Thanks to all at ISA and Viator for making our surf dreams a reality. @carygoeswest

Beautiful beach to learn to surf. My kids had a great time. Carlos and Andy made it easy going and were very knowledgeable and accommodating. Super cool guys! Josefina took photos for purchase, which was a nice souvenir. She was also helpful in recommending some local places to eat. Great team!
Amazing experience!

The instructors are very knowledgeable and very kind with kids, they make sure the safety during the whole class. My two kids had Christian that morning, he was very awesome and both kids like him a lot. They keep asking to join another lesson soon. Also, Kelly the professional photographer offers reasonable price for the pictures, and the pictures are definitely the keepers.
Great time!

Catching Waves - Amazing

We lucked out on this one! Semi-private definitely the way to go. We had three instructors for the 5 of us. Instructors were great and all of us caught a wave. Waves we a bit large for beginners and they gave us the option to reschedule. We went for it anyway. Glad we did. We had a few fearless ones that were out there killing it! Thanks for a great adventure!
Great morning, everyone got up on the board!

Instructors were friendly, fun , and Knowledgeable surfers. Our group ranged from 45-6, and everyone had a good time. They helped people try harder waves that were ready to advance, but also encouraged the smaller participants to take a lot of rides. It was great. Only challenge was parking/finding them o the beach. Make sure you arrive 30 min early like they suggested to give you ample time to park/get to the beach. There is free beach access parking along all the paths to the beach, and we scored 3 of those spots!
Great with kids!

Nick was great. My 10 year daughter was really nervous. But Nick calmed her down and got her out in the surf and gave her great instruction. I highly recommend.
