Meet Lucy Woodward – Maui Surfer Girls November Instructor of the Month
Lucy has been at MSG almost as long as our camp has been in existence – since she was 14! She knows our surf camp inside and out, from being a camper, camp staff, surf instructor and now assistant director.
In November, she served as the assistant director for our Fall Women’s Surf Camp, as well as a full-time surf instructor.
Lucy’s humorous and goofy personality mixed with her adventurous spirit really lets campers and students feel at ease, while being excited to try something new!
Lucy grew up in and around the ocean near SouthHampton, NY. Lucy is also a graduate of Prescott College, majoring in Environmental studies & marine conservation.
You may also meet Lucy if you go sailing with Sail Maui!
Check out some of our recent reviews featuring Lucy:
“I highly recommend Maui Surfer Girls! I took a private lesson with Lucy and she was fantastic. I had surfed a couple times before but felt so much more in tune with myself after this lesson! I was able to change my mindset from “stand up quickly” to “take my time and stand up with grace and balance” (especially on a longboard). I was able to stand up on almost every wave I went for! It really felt amazing to be out there catching waves with Lucy’s help. I appreciated that she took the time at the beginning of the session to talk to me about waves, channels, reefs, land markers, and surfing etiquette. This was all helpful background information to have before heading out into the water, and she easily answered all my questions. Definitely take a lesson from Maui Surfer Girls and support an awesome female-owned local business!” Via TripAdvisor
“We took a lesson for a family of 4. Two adults and two children ages 12 and 10. The whole family had an outstanding time. Our instructor Lucy was great with the adults and the kids. All four of us got up on our first attempts. The location and conditions are perfect for beginners and kids. Highly recommend.” Via TripAdvisor
“Last year my daughter had a lesson with Lucy and we were lucky enough to have her as an instructor again. This year I brought my niece who has never surfed. It was more than great. Lucy recognized the different skill level of my girls and had my daughter paddling into her own waves while working a little more with my niece. Crystal took amazing pictures as always. I this time actually decided to try and paddle board. With anxieties of the ocean Kelly was the most attentive and informative instructor and I actually had a great time. I felt like I was with a friend not someone I had just met. All these women are so amazing not just at what they do but the gift they hold at teaching others and sharing their love for the sport and the ocean! MSG is the only place to go!” Via TripAdvisor
Thank you Lucy for always going above and beyond for Maui Surfer Girls!
