All my son wanted to do when we were in Maui was skimboard. We were leaving in 3 days and didn't really see any skimboards around our entire stay there. Our hotel suggested Skim Hawaii so I called Sean. He was absolutely the greatest. We were staying at the Fairmont and he dropped the skim board off to us and... More

I have been to Maui a few times and grew up skimboarding on the beaches in Cabo. Sean has hands down the best skim rentals on the island. They are better boards than any other shop around and he has the best prices to boot. His communication is excellent to ensure your board is ready for you when you arrive.... More

We used Skim Hawaii for private surf lessons when we were in Maui and loved it! My two sons and I all took lessons and Sean was great with everyone. He was very flexible with our schedule and we all stood up and surfed! Sean is a great teacher and we had an awesome experience! I would highly recommend Skim... More

Sean is a super cool guy, very easy to arrange pick-up and drop offs for the boards, and he had a good selection. I'm from CA and have gone to him last 2 summers when I was in Maui to get a board for a week. Highly recommend him!! Mahalo!!

Our son had been skim boarding when we visited Maui a few times a year, but wanted to step it up with some new skills. I found Sean with Skim Hawaii online and set up an appointment for a private lesson the next day. So glad we did! Sean's enthusiasm is contagious! He was able to quickly assess skill level,... More

Every winter I am lucky enough to be "dragged" to Hawaii by my in-laws. This year I decided that I wanted to do something more challenging/demanding than body boarding and less time consuming/complicated than rent and lug around a surfboard...so I looked up skimboard rentals. This ended up being a bit of a challenge, especially for someone 6'4" ~200lbs, but... More

Sean is a real pro. He had our two young kids skimmimg down the beach in no time at all. He also had great quality boards to meet the conditions so the experience is more fun. Definitely recommended and will use Skim Hawaii again!

My 16 year old son wanted to bring his skim board to Maui but that was going to cost us $100 each way in oversize luggage fees! We found Skim Hawaii online and decided to rent instead. That was the way to go! It was a quality board at a reasonable rate plus Sean delivered it to our hotel. My... More

To all perspective renters: Skim Hawaii is AMAZING. I am from Seattle, WA and I love skimming. I'm used to flat land skimming so I was nervous about trying out wave skimming and I was a little intimidated about where to rent from/who to talk to. Sean was so sweet and picked out the perfect board for me. It took... More
