Learn to Surf in Kihei
Surfing is fun in Maui’s warm water! We offer all levels of surfing instruction. This activity can be enjoyed by the whole family. From young kids to old-timers, beginner lessons to advanced.
Kihei surf lessons can be a one-day activity, a camp, private coaching or longer programs are available too. The Maui waves are great for beginners and advanced surfers too.
Our surf school is located on the island’s most reliable surf spot. We can supply all your equipment. Getting the right equipment is key to your success.
We offer a variety of boards on-site to cater to a range of surfers and conditions. Our wide equipment selection makes catching waves possible for virtually every person.
We supply all the beginner equipment you will need. We have a variety of sizes to accommodate different weight riders. Bigger folks will need more floatation. We provide students with a lycra rashguard shirt and reef booties for protection. Extended board rental is available after your lesson. Advanced surfers can rent from our selection of different board styles and types. Half-day, daily and weekly rentals available.
Our average lesson is about two hours long; this allows for some talk time and a short land lesson, before getting into the water and catching some waves. Most people will be fully satisfied (and exhausted) after their surf session.
The Maui surf lessons in Kihei are held close to shore in a sheltered bay. The waves break a short distance offshore over a gently sloping reef. This makes the waves predictable and relatively gentle. (These locations do not have shore-break waves, and are better for beginners). The students will not need to paddle too far from shore to get their rides.
Only minimal paddling is required. The water depth varies from knee-deep to chest-deep. there are deep water sections in the channels, so all surf participants must be able to swim (no exceptions). Parents and spectators can stay onshore and can get some great views photos of the action. For safety reasons, non-surfers should not enter the water at the surfing location.
Surfing is a lot of fun. Learn about safety in the waves and then paddle on to your first one. With some practice, you will be standing up before you know it. We provide all the equipment. Lessons run Monday through Saturday, year-round. Lesson start times are 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. Beginner surfing lessons are held at Kalama Park in Kihei. All lessons are by appointment only. The minimum age for adult group classes is 9 years old. Children’s lessons available for kids 6 years and up.
All summer long we run weekly three-day surfing camps. Our camps offer two shorter surf sessions per day with a break and snack in between. We do safety talks, theory, and more water time. 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. each day. We provide the gear including lycra rash guard shirt to wear. Students will be placed in small groups according to their weight and experience level. Students can bring their own reef shoes, towels, and sunscreen.
