Where To Take Them

You can also learn to surf in South Maui at Cove Park. The Cove is located at the south point of Kalama Park and is a hub for beginner surf lessons! The park also has bathrooms, picnic tables, showers, pavilions, BBQs, sports fields and an outdoor roller rink park! You can spend the entire day there after your surf lessons hana (practicing) your technique with the whole family.
What They’re Like
Taking surf lessons is an incredible experience. You’ll have a whole new mahalo (appreciation) for surfers you see riding the waves so gracefully and effortlessly. Our Aloha Surf School instructors are patient, knowledgeable and passionate. Regardless of your skill or experience level, our instructors will work with you and help you to stand up on your board and ride a wave by the end of your lesson. Most of our instructors have grown up on our u’i (beautiful) Hawaiian islands. They are extremely knowledgeable about the sea and about surfing and will share their love for both with you!
How To Take Them
Your surf lesson experience can also vary depending on if you take private, semi-private or group lessons. No matter what type you choose, though, you will have an amazing time! Booking a private surf lesson with Aloha Surf School gets your 2 hours of ho’opilikino (personalized) instruction with a talented, experienced instructor. The private lesson is perfect for people who are serious about learning how to surf. If you opt for semi-private lessons, you can learn to serve with a group of up to four of your friends and family. The semi-private lesson lasts for two hours as well! This option is ideal for people who want to learn how to surf, but want to share the experience with their loved ones!
Stand up paddle boarding lessons are another incredible alternative to surf lessons. Many people start out taking stand up paddle boarding lessons before they try surf lessons. Stand up paddle boarding is hula (fun) for the entire family. There’s nothing like standing on top of the water and gliding your paddle through the friendly waves.
