Surf Lessons

When you sign up for surf lessons with Lahaina Surf Shack, you’re not just signing up to learn how to ride a wave. At Lahaina Surf Shack, we personalize all of our lessons to suit you and your abilities. We will not only teach you the ancient art of surfing, we will show you the culture of surfing. We will teach you how to keep yourself and others safe in the water by teaching proper surfer etiquette. You will leave with a better understanding of the water and reef and respect islanders have for both. Our goal at the end of every lesson is for you to safely time and catch a wave on your own. We guarantee you will stand up, learn a new art and have a great time. We offer various types of lessons which include Private, Semi-private and our Group Lessons. All of our lessons are 2 hours long.

SUP Lessons

Whether it’s your first time standing on a board or you’re an avid paddler looking for a new challenge, Lahaina Surf Shack stand up paddle instructors are ready to create a lesson suited to your needs. Our stand up paddle lessons are really one of a kind. Lahaina Surf Shack SUP lessons take place inside a protective reef making it the ideal spot for SUP in most conditions. All SUP lessons are 90 min beginning with a beach lesson followed by paddling.

At Lahaina Surf Shack we are adamant about providing a one of a kind experience and for this reason, all SUP lessons are capped with a ratio of no more than 4 students to one instructor. Early mornings SUP lessons are encouraged to take advantage of the best conditions possible. We offer beginner, intermediate and advanced lessons.

For intermediate paddlers we also offer our newest activity that combines snorkeling and stand up paddling all in one.
