Hang Loose Surf Club’s traditional surf lessons not only teach the technique of standing on a surfboard but also instill the sport’s etiquette.

Wiping out is part of the fun, and learners will soon find themselves confidently riding the waves!

Personalized Instruction for Quality Instruction

Hang Loose Surf Club believes in personalized attention, limiting group sizes to a maximum of five students. This approach allows the CPR and water safety-certified instructors to provide detailed instructions to each student, ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience.

Ride the Waves at Honolua Bay

Here’s a fun fact: Honolua Bay is one of Maui’s top surfing spots. The team at Hang Loose Surf Club competes in the annual surf competitions held there, showcasing their big-wave surfing skills. Once you experience the thrill of surfing these waves, you’ll understand their deep-seated passion and dedication to this royal sport.

Arriving in Hawaii for the first time, my number one goal was to get up on a surf board during the trip. I dragged my reluctant wife along and took a lesson with John at Hang Loose Surf Club. To our surprise, we both surfed for a couple hours with great success. My wife and I both agreed this experience ended up being the highlight of our entire trip! Abner runs the shop and has an incredible thing going, I cannot wait to make it back here and surf again. They worked with us in every way they could, and offered surfboards on days that we weren't even taking lessons. Thank you for the experience, would recommend it to anybody 100x over.

We decided to try out Hang Loose Surf Club as we had a Groupon for it. Booking went smoothly and the instructors were really nice. The reason I am giving this 3 stars is because first of all, the instruction on land seemed pretty short and I had some trouble remembering exactly how we were supposed to get up on the board (albeit once you're out on the water you kind of figure it out yourself). Second the area where you're actually surfing is VERY shallow, and the bottom is rocks and coral. They tell you to fall flat on your back if you can to avoid cutting yourself, and I only got a minor scratch, but 2 taller people in our group got cuts on their hands, which was a little alarming. The instructor warned us about this before our lesson, but pretty much told us to avoid cutting ourselves because of bacteria and whatnot. Although he did warn us, I didn't fully feel comfortable falling into the water. At the time we went (10:30am) there were also many other groups and the area with waves was a little packed. I almost crashed into another surfer at one point. The last thing is some of the waves weren't all that big, so expect smaller waves during your lesson. They are easier to manage but some die off quickly and you don't really get much "surf". Overall my experience was decent. If you go here for lessons, just expect shallow water and smaller waves, and unlike me, don't expect more than that.

My husband and I are first timers in Hawaii and wanted to give surfing a shot. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t that interested in surfing, more of my husbands interest but I’m so glad I did it. Todd was an amazing instructor and made the whole experience fun and memorable. There were 4 of us in our group and we each caught about 7-10 waves.

My partner and I had a great time with Hang Loose/Opelu Surfing! These guys have the inside scoop of Maui but also have the permits in place to make it so you don’t have to carry your boards all the way to the beach! They have very large training boards which pretty much guarantees that you will ride some waves. We did a group surf lesson but lucked out that it was just us two. Your lesson (as well as rentals) come with water boots and a rash guard, two really important pieces of equipment. The beach we go to is shallow (which was great for me as I can’t really swim) with small, practice waves. Todd was our instructor and not only was he great at giving advice and preparing us, but we also had good conversations about work, surfing, living in Hawaii, and all sorts of things. They even have a nice backdrop at the shop and will offer to take pictures for you! Really enjoyed our lesson, will recommend everyone and will definitely do a rental from them in the future!
