What you'll do

Aloha!!!!

We will be getting you well equipped and all geared up for your activity. We will provide water shoes, rashguards, surf board and don’t forget us your favorite instructor on Maui. It will be a 2hr long cultural surfing experience where we will share the basics and safety of surfing and its rich history.

The surf location is located in the center of Lahaina and always has waves of all sizes so it’s a perfect lesson for kids, couples, families, beginners and for experienced surfers. We have both beginner and advanced course for all ages.

*If you have children under the ages of 10 please feel free to reach out to me and I'll provide you with more information about young keiki (children) lessons.

While you are surfing we will be teaching and saying Hawaiian words like Kū meaning to stand, Ihō meaning down, and many more. As we surf we will be seeing the landscape of the Hawaiian islands and the ocean floor’s abundance of wild marine life like turtles and fishes. We never say goodbye to our guests, friends, and family, for we teach the true meaning of Hawai’i and say A Hui Hou! (until we meet again). That is the Hawaiian culture and the Aloha way of life here in the islands.

Other things to note:
- Please check in 15 minutes before your lesson begins.
- Apply reef friendly sunscreen.
- Bring towels and reusable water bottles :)

ALOHA! My name is Kihe and I was born and raised here in Hawai’i. Since the age of 2 years old my father gave me the opportunity to surf so I enjoy the lifestyle of surfing here in the Hawaiian Island’s. I have taken this passion and lifestyle to an exclusive level of not just surfing but teaching Hawaiian language, history, and chants of ancient Hawai’i. So we at Maui Surf and Culture will give this experience that you’ll never find here in Hawai’i while you are surfing. It’s important that We share the Hawaiian culture so those can feel and take home the Mana(energy) from Hawaiian Surfing. Not only do We wanna share the rich history but to teach people to catch there own waves so they can rent a board and go surfing after there surf lesson. So come and enjoy being a hawaiian surfer for a day and learn about Hawaii’s culture

Jedi and Inaldo were such great instructors! We were able to ride waves from our first try. The location was also great for beginners. Highly recommend the guys at Maui Surf & Cultural Adventures. When you get there, add on the photo package. Worth it for the memories!

Inaldo was a super chill and patient surfing teacher. He provided constructive critique on how you did and tips on how to improve. It was a fun experience overall and would definitely recommend to everyone going to Maui. I learned a lot about waves and etiquette when surfing. Mahalo nui loa!

This was a highlight of our trip. Jedi was a fun and helpful instructor. We were first time surfers and were able to catch some pretty good waves with his help.

Definitely recommend to those visiting Maui. We had such a great experience! We were provided with rash guards, surf boards, informative lessons, occasional surfing tows for when I got too tired to paddle myself back out to the bigger waves (thank you!) and at the end of it all we had showers available to wash off all the saltwater as well as some refreshments before we left.

My girlfriend and I ended up running late but the people here were nice enough to reschedule us for a later time :) Our instructor was Jah and he was more than amazing. He told us stories and information on the amazing island we’re on. Jah was very knowledgeable on surfing and a great teacher. We will be back one day!

This is a MUST DO! There is so much care put into this experience. The instructors are insanely friendly and the area is perfect for first time surfers. The location is also great to grab a meal before or after which is great.
