Me and my girlfriend had an awesome group surf lesson this morning. I can totally recommend the earliest morning session because there are less people in the ocean. The spot is perfect for beginners, small but constant waves that allow to make great first experiences. The surf instructor was very nice and gave some great tips how to improve. In the end you also got a certificate and a trucker cap which I already wore the whole day because I liked it so much. Would definetly recommend this place to anyone being in Maui and trying to surf.
