Sunny and Justin were awesome. They made it so fun for our family while making sure we got the right form down. It was definitely a highlight of our trip to Maui. Many thanks!
I especially like the photographer being available to take photos that we bought of our grandchildren surfing.
Our kids took a group lesson in 2015, the experience was so amazing we returned this year with our nieces and enrolled the kids in two semi private lessons. Sonny was great with the kids last year and he did not disappoint this year. Justin was equally amazing. The kids would take a lesson with these guys everyday if they could. You can tell that they love what they do.
Sonny was great and we all can surf now
Justin did an awesome job with me and my eight year old daughter. She stood up immediately and consistently throughout the lesson. Was great for me as well. Highly recommended.
Sonny and PJ made us feel welcome. After a quick lesson on the basics, they said let's go and we were surfing. My kids loved them both and had a blast. I can't recommend MWR enough, especially a semi-private lesson if you have kids. More attention, more safety, more waves. Mahalo!
It was such a great experience and I can't wait to do it again!!
My kids (16 and 9) took lessons with Sonny. They had a blast and he was awesome! I highly recommend Maui Wave Riders.
It was a wonderful two hours. My daughter and I had a two-hours semi-private lesson. We could stand up from the very first time. If you are looking for a lesson at Lahaina, I recommend Maui Wave Riders!
Everyone we interacted with was friendly and helpful from the very beginning. The Instructors were awesome! My husband and I took our nieces as a birthday gift and we had so much fun. The instructors did a great job of explaining the process and they had so much patience with 4 of us who had never surfed. We all got up so that says a lot for them. I highly recommend this local business.
Christian the instructor was very patient and friendly. He also worked well with me and my son so we were able to catch some waves. We had alot of fun! Thanks, Jamie. California
My two little boys loved the lessons and loved Justin. We surfed with him two days in a row. Great nemories!! Thanks! https://youtu.be/vY9sgB9tbdM
The entire experience was stellar! The instructors were fantastic - patient, good teachers, encouraging and focused on safety. We had so much fun! Thank you.
Great experience! As a first-timer I didn't know what to expect, but Renten got us up on some waves and we had a blast! These guys really know what they are doing and created a memorable experience for my boyfriend and I!
Great and practical instruction. Sonny was great and really wanted us to learn and improve and we did thanks to his great help!
We had a blast! Caught tons of waves and loved our instructor Todd, his expert knowledge made it super easy and fun.
Everything went well and certainly exceeded expectations. We had so much fun!
The lesson was very informative on land. Once in the water, our instructor, Sonny, was very helpful, he constantly provided us with pointers to help us get better each time we rode a wave. So glad my boyfriend and I booked surfing lessons the second day here on Maui, can't wait to go back to Maui Ave Riders again this week to rent some surfboards.
PJ was great! Had an amazing lesson,good teacher very helpful
Instructor was great, very informative, easy going, funny guy. Had a great time and caught some waves.
Great Staff, Great Instruction. Great Day
PJ and Sunny were fantastic instructors! My 11 and 7 year old daughters had a marvelous time! Mahalo!
We love the staff and the over all experience!! This is our second time using Maui Wave Riders and both times our kids left with very fond memories. I would highly recommend this company to anyone who wants to learn to surf, the instructors were kind and patient,just what you need when you are learning something new!! We will definitely be telling our friends to use your company in the future !! Thanks for a memorable day !
Ren10 was an honest, straightforward communicator who balanced know-how with enthusiasm - he got everyone from 7 to 49 to ride their first waves!!!
The three of us were probably older than most students(66,66.&64), nonetheless, our instructor (Patrick) was very patient with us and made sure we understood safety issues such as how to fall in a safe manner, the basic surfing stance, maintaining balance, accelerating and slowing down on a wave, and the all important need to keep our eyes forward and not focused on our feet. He also helped us get some rides in very challenging choppy, windy conditions.
Todd was a great instructor. He had patience and helped my wife and I have fun while learning a bit about surfing.
Had an fantastic day with Sonny!
Todd was an awesome instructor and made our experience a wonderful one.
We were very impressed of the level of service and the attention we received from your entire team. Special thanks to Justin.
Thank You to Justin and Chyna for making our surf lessons an excellent part of our adventure on Maui. The kids absolutely raved about it and want to rent boards again tomorrow. You have turned our first timer family into committed wanna bees that will be calling on you again soon! From initial greeting to goodbyes we were treated like family. Thanks again from your new Canadian cousins!
Our family had so much fun paddleboarding and surfing! The instructors were unbelievable. The shop was incredibly well run. Fully recommend this place!!!
From start to finish, an awesome experience! The folks were welcoming and helpful even as i looked for parking. Our surf instructor Sunny was an all-around nice guy, and his enthusiasm for surfing was contagious. I caught more waves than I could count and the day was a blast for both myself and my girlfriend Mahalo MWR
First time surfing and China was an awesome instructor. Have great pointers and all three of us were up and surfing in no time. All of the staff at Maui Surf Riders wet nice and friendly. Highly recommend them.
Chyna and Justin were absolutely great with our large ohana of 7 people including 5 kids under age 12...everyone was up and riding waves in no time and the option to purchase photos of the group so we could focus on surfing was a nice touch.
My grandchildren were surfing very quickly and had a great time!
Our family of 5 (kids ages 11,8, and 6) all had a great experience. First time for all of us. Renten was awesome! If you have any interest in trying to surf, Maui Wave Riders is the way to go!
