Maui Surfing Lessons

Big surfboard for surfing lessons in Lahaina on Maui. Are Maui surfing lessons worth the money? We decided to try a beginners class after hearing about big wave surfing at the world famous Jaws on the Maui's north shore.

But we needed smaller waves - maybe a couple feet high at the most. And Maui is loaded with surfing schools.

We chose a surfing class close to our hotel. Lahaina Harbor is one of several good Maui locations for surfing lessons. There is a consistent and small wave there, and the beach is easy to access.

And here's what I liked - the surfing academy guaranteed that you will ride a wave in your two hour lesson, or the lesson is free.

We surfed in two hours of Maui surfing lessons at Lahaina Harbor. With the questionable coordination in our family, I figured we were getting a morning of surfing for no charge.

But we had to pay full price because both girls rode a wave during their first lesson.

And we decided the lessons were worth the money.

Lots of parents stand on the south side of the Lahaina Harbor breakwater wall rocks and watch their kids during the surfing lessons.
