Trying something new usually takes you out of your comfort zone but this surfing lesson in Maui tries to tailor to your personal preferences, so you can feel at ease the whole way through. You choose what type of lesson is best for you: a group, semi-private, private, or one-on-one session.

What to Expect
Meet for your Maui surf lesson in Kalama Park. Make sure to show up a little bit before your scheduled time.

Once you check in, get suited up in your gear for the day: a rash guard and reef shoes. Then find a surfboard you feel comfortable with.

Next up is a safety instruction and a land lesson on the beach. Your instructor pays close attention to your surfing skill level and helps you get ready to go in the water.

Afterward, test your skills in Maui’s clear water and try to catch some waves.

Your lesson ends in Kalama Park.
