About Maui Surfer Girls | Meet Our Team Of Instructors

Why Maui Surfer Girls?

There are over 20 surf schools on Maui, but the complete experience that we offer sets us apart from our competition.


Location, location, location!

Our surfing lessons take place 8 miles south of Lahaina at scenic Ukumehame Beach Park. We are among the few permitted surf schools in this beach park, meaning you won’t be surrounded by several other beginners as you attempt your first waves.

Small class size = More personalized attention.

Our classes have a 4:1 student to instructor ratio (the smallest in the industry!)

Quality of Surf Instructors

Our surf school is proud to offer Maui’s best surf instructors! Our instructors have a combination of over 50 years of surf instruction experience. Their passion for surfing is contagious! Our students really learn how to surf and they all become part of the MSG ‘ohana (family). Meet our team of surf instructors below!

Years of Experience & Customer Satisfaction

We are one of Maui’s oldest surf schools, and we take pride in the quality of our surf instruction & customer satisfaction. We have been extremely highly ranked on TripAdvisor and regularly receive 5 Bubble reviews. We’ve received the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence from 2013-2021. Read our TripAdvisor reviews!

A legal and safe operation

We are one of only a few surf schools on Maui with a CORA permit from Maui County. All of our surf instructors are CPR and First Aid certified at all times.
