My 2 daughters, 24 and 31, and their mom, 61, took a surfing lesson from Brandon. He got mom up riding waves all the way in. The 2 girls rode almost every wave. Brandon was great, patient and encouraging. Would do it again on our next trip. Brandon used what teachers call the "sandwich" teaching method. He will tell you what you do correctly, then tell you what you can do to improve, then closes with positive encouragement. I don't know if he realizes it, but it's a great method. Helps people figure out what they are doing wrong, improve it, and still feel good about your progress. Thanks Brandon!

Our lesson was with Brandon from Virginia. He is a great instructor and was really good with all of us, especially my boyfriend's 13 year old daughter. She was able to ride a wave backwards soon after we started! Definitely pick the 8am lesson as the wind starts early most days and request Brandon!

My daughter took a lesson with Brandon from Virginia and had a great time. He was a great instructor, had patience and explained concepts very well. She said he had a good sense of humor and was easy to take instruction from. Highly recommended!

My wife and I had a group lesson with Kyle last week and it was a great experience. Kyle had both of us up surfing on our first try. It was a great experience and would highly recommend Maui Beach Boys. They provide everything you need including a snack and drink at the end. Favorite thing we did in Maui!

We biked down Mount Haleakala after watching the sunrise, we snorkeled around Molokini Crater and swam with sea turtles at "Turtle Town," we enjoyed a luau, and we took surf lessons during our stay on Maui, all which made for a wonderful Hawaiian family travel experience! What stands out about our trip to Maui is just how much the teens in our group LOVED learning to surf with the Maui Beach Boys. When asked about their favorite excursion, they were quick to say "SURF LESSONS!" Their enthusiast endorsement of this activity is due, in large part, to the two incredible instructors who provided outstanding instruction and overall customer service! A special shout goes out to Brandon and Dan for making the surf lessons so memorable for the teens and adults in our group. We highly recommend Maui Beach Boys, and strongly suggest that you specifically ask for Brandon and Dan... you will NOT be disappointed.
