Maui Lahaina Group Surf Lesson

1. Maui Lahaina Group Surf Lesson

During your visit to Hawaii, the birthplace of surfing, take a great opportunity to learn how to surf. Experience the calm waters of West Maui which offer perfect conditions for beginner surfers. Take part in a group lesson with a maximum of 5 surfers, which means you will have a ton of opportunity to learn from your professional surf instructor. Before you start, get you geared up with a surfboard, long-sleeve UV rash guards, and water shoes. Leave everything you do not want to get wet or whatever that does not float in the cubicles provided at the surf shop. On the beach, have a brief 15-minute 'land lesson' to go over safety measures and procedures. When your group is ready, head into the water to get started. Each surfer has their own turn to ride a wave and learn to surf. After your wave is complete, you will head back to the designated waiting area until the instructor signals for your turn again. The first few rides usually take some time, but it starts to move faster once everyone starts to get the hang of things. As an added bonus, there will be a professional photographer taking close up shots throughout your lesson.  The group surf lesson is 2 hours in total from the time you leave the surf shop to when your instructor signals you back in from the water. If you do finish early, there is a beach to sit on and wait until the rest of your class is done. Once the class is over, everyone will carry their surfboards back to the shop and then head back to the beach to shower off in fresh water. Return all your surf gear back to the shop and have an opportunity to check out your surf lesson photos which are available for purchase.

What people are saying about Kaanapali

Our instructor Kealii was very supportive and informative! We took surfing lesson last year with a different company that was not nearly as informative as Royal Hawaiian Surf. I watched all of the instructors help support each student stand before releasing the surfboard. Each student found success standing up on the board and catching a wave! It’s was an amazing experience!!

My 22-year-old and 19-year-old really enjoyed surfing with this company. Had 5 people in their group so have a little rest time between each turn. Some groups only had 2-3 surfers so they were able to practice more as the instructor gives personal attention to each of them.

Great experience from the very beginning. My teen boys had fun. They would like to surf more, so we are looking towards continuing learning. Thank you!

Amazing surf lesson & instructors for beginners. Highly recommend! Steve was fantastic.

Lee was a fun and wonderful instructor for our family! Would highly recommend.
