Turtle our instructor was very chill and laid back which was absolutely perfect for our ohana. We were given some techniques to practice on land first along with safety instructions before heading out to the water. Turtle was great with our 10 and 7 year old and we all had an amazing time! They also have a photographer in the water with you to capture these moments! Great value and people I would highly reccomend!

This was such an amazing experience for my entire family! I had purchased these lessons as a Christmas gift for my family for our vacation to Hawaii. My family was very reluctant on surfing as none of them had experience or were not super comfortable in the water. THEY ALL LOVED IT !!!!! They all stood up on the board multiple times and felt like pros. The entire day was an absolute thrill and our instructor was incredible. I would 100% percent recommend :)

Great experience with Roque. Fantastic hospitality! Surfing often depends on weather and if you’re any good (!), but this would have been delightful regardless

Overall very good experience and a lot of fun. But if you want pictures take them yourself or have a family member do it. It’s $20 per picture or $70 for about 20 pictures taken before and during the surfing lesson. Which seems ridiculous high for photos taken on a phone, but this is Maui and some tourist are willing to pay $70 for 20 photos 🤷🏻‍♀️

What a great experience! We went out for lessons as a family of four (2 kids - ages 14 and 9). After a quick on land demo, we were paddling into the ocean. Our guide was great at explaining what to do and my 9 year old popped right up and was surfing on her first try! Everyone else was up on their 2nd attempt. He even taught my kids a few bonus tricks (doing 180's and surfing backwards) since they picked up the basics quickly. The beach was obviously picked because it has a consistent cadence of easy to surf waves which make it ideal for beginners. Only downside to this is that every other instructor is out with a group of newbies too, so it is crowded! Once or twice someone from my group ran into or was run into by someone from a different group, so it can get a little tight. But, everyone had a great time learning a new skill!
