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! :-)
The staff was AWESOME!! It was a great experience from my reservation on the phone, to checking in, to the great surfing experience in the Maui waves. My two 12 year old girls had Sonny as their instructor...they loved him and he got them both up surfing on their first wave!! Thank you. We really appreciate how fun you all make the experience. From a parents point of view it was very safe and well worth the money. Thank you...Maui Wave Riders No Ka Oi. Tanya Merrill (Mia and Lexi...happy surfer girls)
Everybody was very nice, and my sons teacher was awesome, my son got up on his first wave, and many waves after, it was very fun to watch. We will definitely recommend to our friends and family, and come here again when we return! Thank you!
First time trying to surf and thought the instructions were very well. And has a great time!! Thank you so much.
Todd (instructah!) was informative, engaging, positive and a good teacher. Your office colleagues were helpful too. The lesson was one of the highlights of my stay in Maui. The memory will last a long time.
Our instructor Todd was so amazing and patient! All of us were able to ride waves because of Todd! The water was warm, waves were perfect for beginners and it was just great!! Thank you!!
An excellent experience! Engaging and pleasant staff, and a well organized, smoothly run operation, from our arrival, to the conclusion of the lesson. Justin was delightful, as was everyone else we encountered while we were there. Would highly recommend!
Our family of 5 had a wonderful time learning how to surf with Chad and Todd. They were excellent instructors- very patient with all of us. I would highly recommend them!
Mau Wave Riders was absolutely the best experience. I highly recommend MWR and I can't wait to come back and take another lesson with them.
Our instructor China was AWRSOME!!!!
Justin was a great teacher and helped tremendously. I wish someone at the surf shop would have mentioned photo opportunities. Even if this was more money, I didn't realize it was an option if it is. Would have loved to get a photo riding the wave with my wife. Not mad, just bummed we can't have that moment in a picture frame.
Justin was fantastic! We all were able to successfully surf multiple times, thanks to his clear instructions and support. We had a blast and I will definitely be back for more surfing lessons on my next visit! Thank you so much!
Lisa, our instructor, was great. She was patient and taught us well.
We had an awesome experience first time out! J.B. was a fantastic instructor. We would definitely book him again. Very thorough and lots of fun!
