Full description
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.

We had a great time at our surf lesson with Steve! There were a total of 5 “students” and that allowed for lots of 1:1 time and several attempts at catching waves. We also paid for the pictures, which was worth it for the lols. Would recommend for an easy 1/4 day activity

Our family had a great experience surfing with the maui Lahaina instructors and interacting with the staff. I was able to get up and surf my very first wave after instruction and assistance from the instructors. It was my husband and 14 year old daughter‘s first time surfing and they both rode many waves in our two hour session. I highly recommend for all levels of athleticism and experience.

We had a great time learning to surf from J.B. He was an excellent instructor who I would highly recommend! We had five people in our group lesson and we were all able to ride five waves each in the two hour time period after a quick tutorial on the beach. Make sure to ask for J.B. He is a very experienced surfer who was able to help all of us beginner surfers ride some waves.
