Maui Surf Lessons

Lessons are tailored for beginners to advanced surfers and include booties to protect your feet, long-sleeved rash guards and surfboards. A typical beginner lesson starts with a 10-15 minute session on the beach, where you learn to paddle, stand up, stay up, and be safe in the water. Once you're in the ocean, Zack is at your side to help you catch waves and provides instruction every step of the way.
