Sarge is a great teacher and very encouraging. He really enjoys what he does and it shows. We really enjoyed ourselves. Kai got some great pics of us that made it look like we knew what we were doing. LOL I highly recommend them

I had an awesome time! I was a little hesitant and nervous since this was my first surfing lesson. The instructor was wonderful. I did a solo trip, and met other solo people in my group. Fun vibes all around!

Perfect surf lesson
Lyra_D, Sep 2023
We signed up last minute the morning of and we had a great time! The instructor and everyone working there was super nice and helpful. I’ve never surfed before and I was still able to ride a decent amount of waves. The small group was great because it gave each person enough time to learn and ride waves without feeling like you have to wait around. It was a great time and I recommend!
Great Maui Experience

Eps was a wonderful teacher and cool guy to hang out with. He made sure we found a place with good waves. I’d been before in CA and struggled but his instruction helped. .

Great Instructors for any level of surfingg
Sara_B, Jul 2023
My daughter and my niece did the group lesson. My daughter has never surfed before so she was a little nervous. My niece has surfed before but wanted a refresher.By the time the lesson was over, my daughter wanted to do it again. The instructors are awesome and will work with u even if your a little nervous. The pictures we got of them also turned out nice. Definitely will be back
Good instruction but sneaky expensive.
Robert_T, Jul 2023
Instruction was great but the tipping culture is pervasive and has to end or at least slow down. Even the photographer leans heavily on you for a tip - I mean after all, she had to get in the water and take the pictures. It turned a $200 day (2 surfers) into nearly a $400 day.
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Aloha Robert Thank you for the review, I am happy you enjoyed your surfing class with us- since you said your surfing was fantastic I will take your experience with our surf school as a 5/5 star. I will definitely share your feedback regarding photos with the photography company / The photo company we work with is totally separate from our school so I appreciate the feedback-I know the photographers do work hard from taking land shots, in water photos, downloading and preparing your files for immediate airdrop/google drive sending. I am sorry that you felt their service was sneaky and of course tipping is always optional- again - thank you for your feedback and we are happy you had a 5 star experience/ mahalo!
Emily_P, Jul 2023
My kids loved it. The staff was really nice and patient and now I’m renting surfboards throughout the trip and I see myself purchasing some in my future. They’re addicted now 😊

Shawn_D, Jun 2023
Brilliant instruction. We had a fantastic time, learned a lot and became proficient surfers quickly.
If you’re an Active Couple, this is a MUST DO.
AJ_B, Apr 2023
Can’t recommend this experience enough. Here in Maui for a week and this has been my favorite thing thus far. My GF and I had the Sarge as our instructor and Kai taking photos. Sarge was a perfect host and teacher. In between waves he told us all about the island and gave us great recommendations for things to do. An authentic surf experience with a great tour guide. Would recommend anyone to give this a try. Absolute 10/10. Also, we were worried about taking photos but they have it covered. They have a professional camera and Kai taking great action shots of the day. Can’t beat this!
