I normally travel with my kitegear. However, my trip to Maui included many layovers and had a higher potential for kite gear to get lost and/or damaged. This trip I tried something new - renting gear. I rented with Action Sport and was able to use all the latest Naish gear (crisp & well maintained). With 2 pending hurricanes, I... More

I am writing this review to all those considering kiteboarding; Serious about getting into the sport, I took my first lesson a couple days ago. I wasn't sure what time frame I would need to learn so I tried the 3 1/2hr lesson. I found this to be a good time frame but it did leave me wanting more. However,... More

My second time back to Maui and Action Sports. Dave and Susie run a very organized and professional operation - good equipment, best location and the absolute best instructors! Many thanks again to Gonzo who is an experienced instructor who is tuned in to how much to push a student and how much to help. I found Gonzo to be... More

Good class and instructor. The lesson is personalized.The price is dissuasive , though, especially if you are trying it for the 1st time and don't know if you want to continue for more.

Not ideal SUP experience...couldn't find their truck because lesson was outsourced to another surf school...kalama beach location (good sandy bottom but reportedly has waste water problems) was too choppy so lesson was changed on the fly to a surfing lesson using SUPs...instructor was talkative and informative though making this average vice 2-star poor review.

Aloha, thank you for your review and thank you for paddle surfing with us. Our apologies for not communicating better to meet at our company truck that says Surf Club Maui, (our lessons are not outsourced to a different vendor). Kalama Beach Park is one of the best locations on the island for paddle boarding and surfing. Rarely the conditions... More

We bought a surfing lesson for my 11 yr old grandson. The instructors were great. Jacob was very nervous at first, but with patient instruction, my grandson was able to stand on his first attempt.

I took two lessons with Brian during my 3 day stay on Maui. I have also taken lessons in Bonaire and the lessons here far exceed previous lessons. Brian taught me not just how to get up on the board right away, but taught me safety and really got me comfortable with the kite and handling the board. The second... More
