I have the opportunity to travel all over the world doing what I love and meeting new people. One of my major career wins is when I placed first at the 2017 US Open Pro Junior Championships.

Where you'll be

Most of the year I reside in Maui, we can go to beaches like Ho’okipa, Honolua Bay, Paia Bay, or wherever the waves are fun that day. Ho'okipa is a reef break on the North Shore of Maui and it is home to some great waves! Honolua Bay is a world renowned surfing destination located just north of Kapalua, West Maui in Maui County, Hawaiʻi.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 15 reviews.

Cody is an amazing instructor!! So patient and very flexible. We had a last minute change in our group size and he easily accommodated us. We had 2 complete beginners and 1 intermediate surfer. It's great for all levels.

Cody was absolutely excellent!!! Would absolutely recommend to book your next lesson with Cody. He was so much fun to talk to, and as others have mentioned, he's incredibly humble for his level of experience. 10/10, I was able to stand up on my board on the first try!

STOKED beyond anything ever! If you have a basic knowledge of the ocean Cody is da man! He taught my two 14 year olds and 8 year old more about surfing Hawaii than 5 years of previous trips to the ocean. A true waterman and brings the aloha spirit. Highly recommend.

Since I’m an experienced surfer, Cody’s local knowledge of surf spots helped me tremendously to understand and navigate the various surf breaks. This was exactly what I wanted.

Awesome experience! I surfed a lot growing up in CA but it’s been a few years since I’ve been out surfing since I moved away, so I was rusty. I wanted someone who knew the area and could help me get some fun waves while helping me understand local surfing etiquette. Cody let me borrow one of his longboards and we met up at a great spot for my level of experience. I got some fun ones in. He was able to answer quite a few questions I’ve always had about surfing but never got to ask anyone about. He knew the spot really well too, like how the reef in the middle popped waves up quick and how to choose one side or the other for catching the waves. If I had gone on my own, I would’ve gotten super frustrated and blamed it on me losing my skills. I needed that coaching! Cody’s attitude is awesome—humble and chill yet obviously incredibly good at what he does. Whatever your skill level, I’d highly recommend this.

Cody was a great teacher and I got upright on the first wave. I would do this again on my next to trip to Maui. He is very flexible and was able to adjust to my schedule as I accidentally double booked the same time slot for the original lesson time.
