The instructor, PJ, was great and made things easy and fun. Everyone was nice and excited about new surfers.
Coach Todd knew exactly how to treat this family that never surfed before. 3 out of 4 of us got up!
They were very friendly and patient. Our instructor, Sonny, was very easy to work with.
We had so much fun surfing! Thanks.
The instructor was really helpful and knowledgeable
Great lesson, not too short not too long, small group, attentive instructor.
This was the first time surfing for my two teenagers. They had a great time, learned some good skills, and feel much more confident in the ocean. Thank you!
Excellent instructors,up and riding like magic!
Sonny was awesome and was definitely the highlight of the trip for my husband and son.
This was my girlfriend's and my first time surfing ever, and it was a great experience. The instructor was very helpful and experienced, made it look easy and we had a better experience because of it riding the waves.
Sonny was a great instructor and got us out on the water very quickly. It was a blast and we can't wait to try surfing again. I would recommend MWR to anyone who is a first time surfer.
We were a group of 6 and everything was well organized. Our instructor was Sunny. He was friendly, patient and helpful. We all had a great time! Thanks for a wonderful experience!
My daughter had previous lessons with another company on another island, but her instructor at MWR was very involved and ultimately she learned to surf and a great time.
Instructors were enthusiastic and all about helping the kids. Staff was wonderful. Even the guy who took pictures didn't try to rip you off by charging a ridiculous amount. I would recommend these guys all day long!
My husband and I had a great time. We learned to Surf on our first attempt. We were exhausted afterwards but the trill of the ride was well worth the effort. Renten was an excellent teacher and gave us the instruction and confidence we needed for surfing success.
It was amazing, honestly. They were very kind. Even when i ran out of stamina and I couldnt paddle anymorr, they still treated me very kindly. The instruction was fast and understandable. I'm very pleased with my visit, and the hat at the end was awesome. It's a great place to learn, and the rentals are cheap!!
Sonny was a great instructor. He had all four of us surfing small waves in no time. He was confident and patient, and kept us feeling good, even when we fell off our boards. Thanks for leaving us all with great memories of a fun afternoon - and some new skills, Sonny!
The instructer was super patient and my daughter really enjoyed it!
There are many surf schools on Maui and we opted for MWR from reviews and friends. We were not disappointed in our choice. Some folks in our group had apprehensions but we're not deterred. They were super friendly on the phone making the reservation and the aloha spirit prevailed in the shop. Todd was our instructor and zipped us through the initial part in order to get us to the beach. Todd has some great stories to tell about baseball, surfing and just about anything else.... We loved his attitude towards teaching the art of surfing and not laughing at us for our form. All of us were able to surf immediately following todd's direction. If we didn't, we fell.. Go figure. Long story short- if you want to try to surf, go somewhere else. If you want to surf go to Maui Wave Riders.
Instructor (Todd) was great! Had a great time, learned a lot!
Affordable, helpful, good lessons, very flexible with gear rentals.
Our daughter took lessons with Sonny in 2014 & our son took Lessons with PJ this week! Everyone that works at MWR is friendly and fun. The instruction is great, and both of my kids really enjoyed their experience! They both got up during their first lesson and we're catching waves on their own by the second. We really like these folks & highly recommend you give them a try!
Referral from a friend. Patrick was great.
Best Instructors, wonderful customer service!! Recommend it hands down. Mahalo for the beautiful memories
Our 8 year old son and 10 year old daughter had a great time. The instructors were amazing. They were very good with he kids and they had a blast. Our kids want to go again. Thanks for the great experience. I highly recommend Maui Wave Riders epically if you have young kids.
I would highly recommend this company to anyone wanting to learn to surf! We took our lessons at the Lahaina location---Sonny did a fantastic job---all 6 of us were up and riding waves right away!!
My instructor was great! I got up on the first try and with his help I kept that going the entire lesson. Highly recommend.
My 13 yr old Grand-Daughter didn't want to try surfing. We had to talk her into it. She caught her first, of 10 or so waves, and road it all the way in. She had the time of her life and loved it.
We were very happy when we signed up our 2 kids for surf lessons through Maui wave riders. Todd was very good with the kids and gave them adequate instruction on what to do once out on the water. My kids thoroughly enjoyed their experience with Todd. He was very friendly to talk to and even gave us tips on what to do while on our stay in Maui. We will definitely come back next time we are on the island.
Very knowledgable instructors~Sonny was ours and was very cool, they allow you to use the surfboards after lesson for free!
Chad was great with everyone ... Very helpful and encouraging. We had a great time and would highly recommend MWR and Chad!
Todd was so personable and helpful and it was an amazing experience! Highly highly recommend!
They all were very professional and welcoming ! Family owned and I liked that idea . Sonny B was great ! Patient and helpful . Got up first time !!!!:)
Sonny was a great teacher for our girls , he was positive and personal and made them feel very comfortable.
Renten was great. Everyone - at the desk, on the floor, really cool and upbeat. I love that you're asking, so that's great, too. My favorite part was Renten. Chill and encouraging. I had a post surfing problem. Renten followed up with my son about my condition which meant a lot to both my son and me. If I return to Maui, I'll return to MSR. Mahalo!
Fantastic. You guys are what Hawaii is all about - Pure Aloha.
Beyond excellent service. Super friendly guides. Todd and Patrick didn't rush us at all and made sure our kids were well taken care of.
Maui Wave Rider is awesome! Had a group surf lesson, great instructor, caught my first wave and had a blast. Highly recommended if you want fun, sun and a bit of adrenaline!
Our son is 8 and had a surf lesson on his bucket list for Maui. Booking was easy online and the experience great!!! He had so much fun!!! Thanks Sonny for your great teaching and cheering him on. I can recommend Maui Wave Riders for a surf lesson, for sure! :-)
