More about this activity
Maui Surfer Girls operates out of Ukemehame Beach Park, conveniently located in between Lahaina and Kihei, just off Honoapiʻilani Highway. Ukemehame is one of Maui’s most idyllic stretches of sand. Its frequent calm conditions, soft breaking waves, and easy access make it one of the most beginner-friendly breaks on the island. Maui Surfer Girls is one of the few surf schools permitted to teach at Ukemehame Beach Park, allowing for a comfortable lesson setting with little to no crowds.
Embodying the spirit of Aloha, Maui Surfer Girl instructors are all passionate surfers with an in-depth knowledge of the sport. Serving as Maui’s only female-owned surf school, most of MSG’s instructors are female, but lessons are open to everyone! With a 4:1 student-to-instructor ratio, Maui Surfer Girls provides students with a level of safety and attention that is unmatched.
Group lessons are two hours and each guest is provided with a surfboard to match their ability level, rash guards, and booties. Before hitting the waves, your instructor will go over the surfing basics; where to position yourself on the board, proper paddling techniques, and practicing how to pop up. Guests will also receive a short but detailed lesson on ocean currents, tides, surfing etiquette, and ocean safety.

I LOVE MAUI SURFER GIRLS! You absolutely made my trip to Hawaii! I can’t believe I can now call my self a real surfer! What a great experience. I even have photos to share with my friends. Everyone is super jealous. Everyone is stuck in the snow drooling over my adventure in Lahaina Maui. Seriously thank you so much!!!!!!!
I’m grateful for having tried to surf. Didn’t think it would take, but I stood up on my second wave and rode it all the way to the beach. Didn’t know that would happen. They said it helps to be pushed in and have a big board. I think it was because I was relaxed and the water was warm. Whatever reason, I would do it again. Thanks
Thank you for making this an easy introduction to surfing (and to the Ocean, something I’m not terribly well familiar with!) I think your respect of me really sealed the deal for this review. You didn’t talk down to me because I don’t know the ocean. You walked me through it like family. I don’t do reviews unless something goes really bad. You deserve this and I’ll be sharing your lessons with anyone I know that is visiting Maui. Thank you so much!
This was very good. Thanks to you for everything! Best surf lessons ever!

My 6 year old son wanted to share his experience: “I liked to surf with my family. My favorite part is surfing! My surfboard was yellow last time and blue this time. I even rided on the same board as my sister once. I like to see fishies and bodysurf.”

I am so sore. I guess I ought to have done a little exercise in the last few months before trying this. I’m getting old. Fun though

Oh, Maui Surfer Girls are the BEST! You are just super humans. Please give the instructors last thursday a raise. They deserve it for dealing with my uncoordinated @$%!
WOW, that was a very unique experience for someone not all that familiar with the ocean. Just being out in the water and seeing reef and fish was enough, but I am proud to say I caught 3 waves and rode them for a while! I caught more than that, but I either didn’t stand up or fumbled off the board. Very glad to have the rope around my ankle, getting back to the board was much easier that way.
