We were attending a association convention and had an open afternoon. MWRs stayed open later than usual to accommodate our group. Sol was a great instructor and my clients had a great time. Thanks to all and job well done! Steve

My 3 kids are beginners and really enjoyed the light surf in Kihei. The lesson was good but (like most things in Maui) overpriced. By the end they were ready for a bigger challenge.

Our instructor Kazuma was very knowledgeable and patient. Excellent experience overall. Photography was a little on the pricey side but they capture the moment in excellent detail and the pictures are definitely a must have for those who want a memento of the experience.
