What you'll do

Aloha!!!! I'll be Getting you well equipped for your activity which we provide Water shoes, RashGuard, surf board and don’t forget me your personal instructor. It’s a 2 hour cultural surfing experience where I will share the basics and safety of surfing and its rich history. The location where we surf is located in the center of Lahaina and always has waves of all sizes so it’s Perfect lesson for kids, couples, families, beginners and for those who have surfing experience. It’s both beginner and advanced course for all ages. If you have children under the ages of 10 please feel free to reach out to me and I'll provide you with more information. While you are surfing I will be teaching and saying Hawaiian words like Kū meaning to stand, Ihō meaning down, and many more. As we surf we will be seeing the landscape of the islands and the ocean floor abundance of wild marine life like turtles and fishes. We never say to our Guests, friends, and family good bye for we teach the true meaning of Hawai’i and we say A Hui Hou (until we meet again) for that is the Hawaiian culture and the Aloha way of life here in the islands.
Other things to note
Please check in 15 minutes before your lesson begins. Apply reef friendly sunscreen. If you are nervous because its your first time or you can't swim? Well I'll change your nervousness into happiness and make you feel really comfortable because the depth of the water is only knee to waist deep.

ALOHA! My name is Kihe and I was born and raised here in Hawai’i. Since the age of 2 years old my father gave me the opportunity to surf so I enjoy the lifestyle of surfing here in the Hawaiian Island’s. I have taken this passion and lifestyle to an exclusive level of not just surfing but teaching Hawaiian language, history, and chants of ancient Hawai’i. An experience that you’ll never find here in Hawai’i while you are surfing. It’s important that I share the Hawaiian culture so those can feel and take home the Mana(energy) from Hawaiian Surfing. Not only do I wanna share the rich history but to teach people to catch there own waves so they can rent a board and go surfing after there surf lesson. So come and enjoy being a hawaiian surfer for a day and learn what my ancestors have shared with me.

Wonderful experience! I went surfing for the first time. Jedi (one of the instructors) was excellent. He made us feel comfortable and taught us well.

We had a bit of an interesting experience with Willy. He made some offhanded comments to the other guys that we took the lesson with and also said some things to us that were a bit odd. Not offensive in any way but just a little uncomfortable

Kihe was the best surfing instructor ever. He is very detailed in his instruction, and invested in your success. I have taken a surfing lesson before and it was nowhere near as successful. I will always go to him first when I’m in Maui and recommend him to my friends.

Willie is the best! He was so helpful and encouraging! We had so much fun with him! It felt like we were taking a lesson from a friend and not a company.
