Group Lessons
This lesson joins you with other surfers. There is a maximum of 6 students per instructor. *If you have children that will be surfing that are under the age of 8, we respectfully do not offer a Group Lesson for safety reasons. We recommend a Private or Semi-Private Lesson. Remember, you will be sharing your instructor with other beginner surfers! If you are looking for more attention we recommend our Semi-Private or Private Lesson. If you look forward to surfing with other beginners and love to meet new people, this is the lesson for you! 

Semi-Private Lessons
Our Semi-Private lesson is great for couples or for kids! It consists of 2-12 students from your party with a private instructor! This lesson will be more individualized than our Group Lesson. It allows you more attention with your instructor and you do not share your instructor with anyone outside of your party! Remember you must have a least 2 people in your party to book a Semi-Private Lesson. Ask us about special deals for families of 10 or more! 

Private Lessons
We suggest a private for those who want a more advanced lesson or complete individualized attention. We also recommend a private lesson for surfers who want to work on their skills or for those who are hesitant beginners! We definitely recommend our Private Lesson for young children!

If been on Maui for 12 days and Mother Nature wasn't helping me get out on a stand up paddle board due to high surf warning. However I did manage to hire a surf board from these guys and get out. All the equipment is in great condition and rash top & reef shoes included in price. I booked for a group beginners paddle board lesson but on the morning it was just me and Soll my instructor so a 1-2-1. I absolutely loved it Coming from a snowboarding, surfing & triathlon background I took to the paddle board like a duck to water The instruction from Soll was perfect and after a dry run on land with the basics she had me on the water and stood up first time. I stayed upright throughout the lesson just one wobble as I was distracted by three sea turtles that were swimming around us ! Now I have to come back to Maui to do more paddle boarding and Standup Paddle Boarding will be my first stop for surf or paddle board hire. I really want to do more paddle boarding and develop my skills. Huge thanks to Soll & MWR

My kids, 14 & 17, wanted to try Stand Up Paddleboard lessons. After some research we decided on MWR. This decision was based mostly on the price. A 1 1/2 hour lesson cost $65. We scheduled it for 7:30 am. We could have kept the boards until 3 when they closed. They provided booties and a rash guard shirt. The lesson started on the beach and then moved to the water. There were 5 people in the group, which was very manageable. The instructor was very knowledgable and very laid back. Both kids were standing in no time. Around 9:30 the waves started to pick up and they were riding the waves. They also spent some time watching turtles. Even though you could keep the equipment for the day. We turned it in after 3 hours. There is just a limit to how long you can stay out in the sun. Everyone who takes a lesson gets a MWR hat. We all had a great time!!!!!

Great service and helpful advice before we took to the water on our Stand Up Paddleboard. My sister and I took my 68 year old mom and she was able to stand up after kneeling for the first hour. We chose to paddle out beyond the waves and it was very relaxing and fun, but my 22 year old son and another friend chose to ride the waves with their paddle boards. We loved it so much we did it again before we had to head to the airport to go home. The early morning 8:00ish was perfect!
