    We had a great time learning to surf from J.B. He was an excellent instructor who I would highly recommend! We had five people in our group lesson and we were all able to ride five waves each in the two hour time period after a quick tutorial on the beach. Make sure to ask for J.B. He is a very experienced surfer who was able to help all of us beginner surfers ride some waves.

  • Maui: Kalama Beach Park Surf Lessons

    3. Maui: Kalama Beach Park Surf Lessons

    After you've checked in for your surfing adventure, your instructor will run through some dry land instruction so you can practice getting up and staying on the board. After this, you will be taken to the water' edge, where you will leash up and splash in. For group lessons, you'll paddle out and line up, and once out in the water your instructor will monitor you to ensure you're safe and off on the right foot. Surf lesson times are at 8:00AM, 10:00AM and 12:00PM, and it is recommended to take the early lesson to allow the most time for learning. Your expert instructor will get you up and surfing quickly and with ease. In no time at all, you'll learn proper techniques, surf etiquette, and how to ride a wave.

    Had a great experience! Was surprised to see how quickly we were able to start catching waves. Kevin was the best!
