Great Experience for first time surfer's

We had a semi private lesson for our two teens. They had an amazing time. Our instructor, AL was very relaxed and fun. We highly recommend Maui Wave Riders.

We signed up our two daughters (ages 7 and 11) for a semi private surf lesson on March 19th. We have previously done adult surf lessons in Lahaina and were a bit apprehensive of doing this one is Kihei. It was just excellent!! The girls had Nehoa as their instructor and he was friendly, positive, professional and ensured the girls... More

These guys got it all, great service, friendly staff and most important are knowledgable! We had a huge rain while we were in Maui. A liitle known fact is that The Cove has a large drainage ditch that empties right into The Cove. The water here can be muddy, dirty, contaminated and not safe for swimming/surfing after a large rainfall.... More

Our 15 year old daughter wanted to learn to surf and within 45 minutes - she was. Keoki was a very good teacher. She was able to keep the surf board for several hours and when she came back two days later, she was able to rent a surfboard for several hours for a minimal fee.
