Maui Surfer Girls offers the best surf lessons and surf camps on Maui. Our surf school caters to small groups, families and newlyweds, with small class sizes and professional instructors (most of whom are female!) We started in 2001 with our summer surf camps for teenage girls, with a mission to build self-confidence through the sport of surfing. We quickly branched out to offer year-round surf lesson to men and women, and kids starting at age 5! Our teen camps have grown to be extremely popular, and in 2017 we are excited to be offering our women's camps year-round. Please check out website for upcoming camp dates. We look forward to sharing the spirit of aloha with you on Maui’s warm waves.

This was our first time to ever surf! We are hooked.... thanks to Maui Surfer girls and our instructor, Sharkey! My husband and teen daughter took lessons with Sharkey first, then a few days later we went back for more lessons and our daughter insisted we ask for Sharkey again. He was a great coach!

To add to the rave reviews other have left before me, my family's experience was the best. THE BEST! My wife and older daughter had lessons booked. My wife had a group lesson with Sharky and daughter private lesson with Gina. Not all places on the island own customer service like Gina, Sharky and Maui Surfer Girls. It is obvious... More

We have a 11 year old daughter who has never gone surfing before. Our instructor Don did an awesome job and my girl managed to stand up on the waves several times and even get down back to board gracefully a couple times. All this within two hours instruction, I would say it's pretty impressive. And it certaninely can't be... More

We booked a private lesson for our family of four. Practically, this meant 2 instructors for our family. We all got up on the first try due to the careful and deliberate instruction. It was a blast!

Gina and her team are so positive and encouraging that they made our diverse group feel like a fun little team of surfers. They easily blended our family with another group and they were super patient and supportive. We have had other instructors, but none have been this thorough.Now that we have been spoiled, it will be hard to surf... More

My kids and I have taken surfing instructions at several different places and this place was the best by far. We went to another local place and although it was OK, we decided to get further instruction at Maui surfer girls. These ladies were simply awesome. They really understand surfing and were very knowledgeable about all aspects of surfing. Everyone... More

Gina was awesome and so patient with myself and my 11 year old girl. We have taken privates from a different company but they didn't really teach my daughter how to do it herself. She walked away from this lesson feeling confident that she can surf on her own in the future!

We surfed before on the North Shore of Oahu 2 yrs ago, had fun, but felt like the instruction was better through Maui surfer girls. Gina was awesome and very accommodating for our family. My son who is 10, was not sure if you wanted to surf, but she went out of her way to get him a board last... More

My two girls aged 15 took the lessons and loved it. Their instructor was Sharky and he was amazing with them. Both girls got up surfing multiple times and Sharky used my daughters GoPro out there to capture the morning. I highly recommend Maui surfer girls and Sharky, although I think all the instructors there seemed pretty awesome.

These experienced surf teachers, Sharkey and Gabby provided expert instructions while on the sand. We were provided long sleeved sun shirts, aqua shoes and surfboards appropriate for our sizes. Once in the water the instructions were so good everyone was up on their boards and surfing within a matter of minutes. The young ones ages 10 & 8 were carefully... More
