Maui Waveriders conducts their surf lessons in Maui from both the south side in Kihei and from Lahaina. After you check-in at the Maui Wave Riders surf shop, they escort you across the street with your board in hand. The lesson begins on the beach with the surf instructor teaching you the basic fundamentals of surfing which is learning to stand up on the board without falling off. They will also explain surf etiquette and the rules of the wave. It takes a short period of time to master the technique of standing up on the board. Once the instructor feels like to group has mastered this, it’s out to the water. The instructor will accompany the group to make sure everyone is adapting to the lesson. There is a difference between standing up on a surfboard on the beach and in the open ocean. The beach doesn’t have the current to deal with. Your Maui surf instructor will show you how it’s done by catching the first wave. Then it’s your turn to catch the wave.

It’s an awesome feeling riding a wave on a surfboard. Expect to wipe out the first couple of times. The bottom is more sand than reef at Kamaole Beach Park III, so it’s not much of a wipeout. But, it’s part of the activity, so you have fun falling into the water also.

In Kihei, they are located across the street from Kamaole Beach Park III. It’s the best place to learn to surf in Kihei. Kamaole III has a sand bottom, so it’s a soft landing when you wipe out.

In Lahaina, Maui Wave Riders are located on Prison Street. It’s about a 100-yard walk to the surf spot. The surfing area is known as break wall and sits just south of Lahaina Harbor. The waves are small and it’s the best surfing location for beginners.

Surfing on Maui has been an ongoing sport in Hawaii since the Kingdom of Hawaii, hundreds of years ago. It was known as the sport of Kings. For most of that time, it was only heard of in Hawaii. Fast forwarding the clock, surfing is now a sport that is enjoyed worldwide. There is a good reason for that, it’s fun.

Maui Wave Riders surf instructors are local born and have been surfing their entire life. They compete in surf competitions around the world and are considered experts on surfing. They are all certified in CPR and water safety. One of the things that separate Maui Waveriders from everyone else is their instructors display “Aloha” not because they feel they have too, but because that is who they are. Big difference.

Fun Fact:
Surfing began in Hawaii. Due to Hawaii’s location, there are always waves to surf. One of Maui Wave Riders surf instructors is a descendant of Duke Kahanamoku who is considered by many to be the founder of modern surfing. In the days of the Duke, surfboards were carved from the Koa Tree. Today the boards are made of polyurethane or polystyrene foam covered with layers of fiberglass cloth, and polyester or epoxy resin. They are much easier to handle today than back then.

Such a great experience! Kyle took our group out for an early morning paddle board. We were a mix of experience so I appreciated his focus on safety and debrief on the beach. We saw lots of coral and fish, even a few turtles! The shop is a fun and welcoming spot to get your gear together and settled. The experience is a must do on Maui and Waveriders are an established group so we knew we were in good hands. It’s worth the money to book a lesson if you’ve never surfed before- glad we ignored the reviews that say otherwise. Locals appreciate it and don’t like folks having no clue what they’re doing in the line up. This is the ocean and not Disneyland. :)

Both my husband and I took a semi private surf lesson today, our instructor was Joshua and he was awesome! At 52, it was my first lesson on a surfboard, I had a blast! You’re never too old to learn! I highly recommend MWR

Wow!! One of the top highlights of our trip to Maui. We checked out MWR with a group of friends and had an amazing time paddle boarding in the early morning.

Our instructor was Kyle and he was AWESOME! It was the first time paddleboarding for some of us and Kyle was so patient, kind and such a fun time to be around. He deserves 5+ stars for his service!!!

Great value, great service and great time!! Thank you Kyle and team for an amazing memory. Can’t wait to come back and see you all again!
