Great instructor. First time surfers (teens)...excellent location offered up for beginners. Parents walked around Lahaina, shopped, went to a restaurant for drinks while boys had a lesson, then able to watch them show off their skills on the waves. Definitely recommend this surf shop.

Booked a semi-private lesson for 2 people as a Christmas present to be used on a future trip to Maui. Online booking process was super easy. Prices are reasonable. People are very friendly and informative. Lessons were great. Would definitely recommend it.

You can't get any waves above without a few wipeouts, that's the truth. Thanks for coming out and getting a few good ones with Renten. We are happy to hear everyone in the family was catching some good ones out there!
