My wife and I took a beginning surfing class at Surfing 101 in Kihei, Kekoa was our instructor, what a fun, competent and great instructor he was. We also spent some time with Ben one of their other instructors, also a real pro. Kekoa and Ben are also great surfers.
I attempted to surf at the North Shore on Oahu, at a fancy resort. The surf was so rough, I was never able to fully stand. MWR is right across the street from where you surf. The waves were a bit smaller than the North Shore but Andrew had me up on the very first wave. Amazing time- thank you!
Our family had an excellent time with Surfing 101!! They were all very organized and courteous. It was a great place to learn how to surf. The day starts with 15 minutes of intro into the very basics of surfing and then you head to the water. Keoki our instructor had everyone in our group surfing after 1-2 attempts. The water is only about 4 feet deep, and the waves are easy to ride. This is a must do while in Maui. Keoki will have you surfing in no time!!
Great prices and fantastic beginner location. George (our instructor) was one of the best athletic and skills coaches I’ve ever worked with. My 11 year old i think now has a life long love affair with surfing. Well done folks.
Amazing experience! Our instructor Justin MG was just the greatest, we were riding waves after a few runs and he made sure to make the experience fun. They had someone out the water as well to capture pictures. To capped off the lesson he gave us free caps and a 20% discount to a local bar called Three’s which I would recommend as well.
My sister and I had a wonderful semi-private lesson with Sol. It was our first time surfing and she helped us get comfortable and confident. Sol was the best! Funny, inspiring and will teach to your skill level. We were both feeling like pros by the end. Would highly recommend!
Great experience! They were so helpful for us more mature beginners! :). Even helped us carry our boards across the street!’nSo much fun and it started in their shop. Don’t hesitate to go with these guys!
I had a short morning before catching a plane back to WA to try to catch a wave for the first time in my life. I decided to book a lesson with The Surfing 101 at 7:30 in the morning for a semi private lesson that turned into a private lesson. Al, a formally sponsored surfer, was my instructor, a great guy, Easy going and patient. It was completely worth taking a lesson, plus if I didn’t have to catch a plane, I could had used the equipment to practice the rest of the day. Personally, I rank the experience as high as watching the sunrise from Haleakalā volcano.
