Catch a wave as you hang ten with the “sport of kings.”

What better place to learn this ancient sport than in the place it was invented? A lesson at one of Maui's surf schools will provide you with surfing basics, from paddling out and popping-up to reading the waves and spotting incoming sets.

Professional instructors welcome all aspiring surfers and adapt their teaching style to the ability of each student. Surf lessons typically include reef shoes, a long-sleeve rash guard and surfboard. As an experienced surfer, I love surfing Ka‘anapali Point and know I can get help when I need it from the lessons offered seven days a week. For beginners, a good tip to remember is that the earlier in the day you go, the easier it is (since the water is calmer in the morning). And sunscreen is a must. It’s easy to forget once you’re in the water, so put it on early.

We can help you book private, semi-private, or group surf lessons. But don’t wait. I love the fact that we offer board rentals at the resort, so you don't have to worry about bringing one or storing it. This is a popular activity and spots fill fast.
