Maui Surfing Lessons and SUP Lessons with Maui Surfer Girls

🏆 Welcome to Maui’s Top-Rated Surf School! We are Maui’s only female-owned, female-run surf school.  Our lessons are co-ed, with both male and female surf instructors. We are also one of the few surf schools that offer TWO-HOUR surf lessons (other schools offer only 1.5 hour classes). MAXIMIZE your time on the water with our unique and personalized teaching style, which we’ve been perfecting for over 20 years!

Surf Photography Package

We are now working with Jungle Rootz photography to capture your family surf lesson memories! They come down to the beach for any lesson time slot with more than one person in it, but if you are definitely interested in photos, add the note ‘photos’ to the comment section They get family portraits, candids during the land lesson, and as many surf action shots as they can get! All of the photos on this blog post are examples of the souvenirs of your Maui surf lesson that you’ll be able to keep forever! You can preview the photos on an iPad right at the beach, and they take cash or credit cards. Within 24 hours, (rarely it takes longer, depending on how many people purchase photos) they will email you a link (to the email you booked the reservation with) to download all of your images, which will be active for 30 days.

Weather and Cancellation Policy

Weather Cancellations: Surfing is an activity that requires the ocean and weather to cooperate 100%.  If we have to cancel due to weather (no waves, too big waves, brown water, lightning, strong wind, etc), we will try to reschedule your surf lesson to another time.  If a reschedule is not possible, it’s a 100% refund.


If YOU need to cancel : With a minimum of 48 hours notice via email or phone call, there is a 15% cancellation fee for refunds.  No refunds with less than 48 hours notice.  Rescheduling is complimentary with more than 48 hours notice, if there is space available.  Click on the link in your confirmation email to cancel or change your surf lesson with more than 48 hours notice.


Age and Swimming Regulations

We at Maui Surfer Girls want to ensure the full safety of our students. Due to the dynamic conditions that may occur when learning to surf we have important safety policies. Being a strong swimmer is not a must but being able to tread water and feel confident in the ocean is important. Our policies state that any student AGES 11 AND UNDER or one that is not a confident swimmer must book a private lesson. A private lesson does not ‘separate’ your child from the rest of the family, but their own instructor will stay with them on the water the entire time. By booking a private lesson, our MSG staff can ensure the safety of our students and therefore students are able to get the most out of their surf lesson.

Prone to Sickness?

Please be prepared before your class with a non-drowsy seasickness medicine.
