The Experience

Once you arrive on Maui, you’ll be greeted at the airport by our friendly staff. Twenty minutes later, you’ll arrive at our oceanfront A-frame cabin facility, Camp Olowalu, the ultimate setting for your week of adventures. Each morning, after a healthy and filling breakfast prepared by our private chef, we head a few miles south to our designated surf spot for the week.

Our professional surf coaching team will help you improve and feel more confident in the water each day. For lunch, we will fuel up on more healthy grinds, then the afternoon activities will vary depending on the season and the weather.  Past activities have included yoga, massages, hiking, snorkeling, stand up paddling, boat trips, whale watches, reading books and napping in a hammock!  Evening activities range from relaxing bonfires to dance parties!

Open to women ages 18+, beginner and intermediate surfers welcome! No experience is necessary, just an adventurous spirit!

Before the camp start date, you will receive an email link to our travel form. Please complete our travel form with your airline itinerary so we can arrange your airport shuttle.

 

 

ARRIVALS

 

If arriving by plane, please arrive before 3pm on opening day. A staff member will be at baggage claim to pick you up. If you arrive later than 3pm we can still pick you up but you may miss Opening Circle depending on arrival time.
If arriving by car, please be at Camp Olowalu by 3pm for our 4pm opening circle.  (You do not NEED a car for this camp, on-island transportation is included in the cost)

 

DEPARTURES

 

*If departing by plane, please schedule a departure of (ideally) 11:30am or later. On Closing Day, all airport shuttles leave camp at 9am which gets you to the airport around 9:30am at the earliest. We recommend giving yourself 2 hours before your departure in case the airport lines are long. If you want to get there with less time ahead of your flight, Maui Surfer Girls can’t be held responsible for any missed flights. If your departure is earlier than 11:30am, you will need to schedule a ride
share pick-up (Uber, etc.) for yourself from Camp Olowalu.

 

*On closing day, the last airport drop-off time is at 12 noon. If you have a late departure and want to explore the island a little before you leave, we can drop you off in Kahului to rent a car or Pa’ia (10 minutes from airport) to do some shopping/dining. You will be in charge of your afternoon/evening transportation back to airport. Ride services such as Uber are typically always available.

 

Please note that if you arrive a day or more before camp start date or stay after the camp closing date, you will be in charge of your own accommodations for those nights. We can coordinate with you for a
pick-up or drop-off in Kahului on Opening/Closing Days.
