Maui surfing lessons are a blast with Royal Hawaiian Surf Academy.
When thinking of Hawaii, the first thing that comes to mind for many visitors is surfing, and rightfully so! Maui boasts some of the best surfing in the world. Situated in historic Lahaina Town on Maui’s Westside, the Royal Hawaiian Surf Academy is easy to find and is just a short walk to your surf spot. South of the Lahaina Harbor, a perfect wave breaks on the inside of the channel, providing a great area for beginners. Another set of waves breaks just a bit further out and consistently delivers waves for more experienced riders. Your surf school check-in starts at the infamous “Prison Street” location, named quite literally for the stone walled prison just a block up the road that once held rowdy whalers and seamen. Whether this will be your first time in the water on a surfboard or you are back to sharpen your skills, Royal Hawaiian Academy is the perfect spot for your Maui surfing lessons.
The ninety-minute lessons begin on the beach with a dry run of your technique and approach, what to look for in a wave, how to read the water, and how to stay safe. All you need to bring is a positive attitude, swimwear, sunscreen and a towel. They’ll provide you with a rash guard, surfboards, booties and will even take photos for you. The confident, friendly instructors know just how to read the waves and show you how to navigate the swells from your board. Maui surfing lessons are offered in a small group setting, with one instructor for five surfers. The instructors are your patient, encouraging and attentive guides, who don’t let you quit! Their positive attitude and direction will have you surfing in no time! Private Maui surfing lessons are offered as well for those who prefer a one on one experience. Personal attention can help to ease the nerves of those who are hesitant or nervous in the ocean. You traveled all the way to Hawaii-now do as the locals do and catch a wave!
