My husband and I booked this activity while visiting Maui not to learn how to surf, but to do something we had never done before and have a great time. When the instructors asked us if we were ready to surf, my east coast cynicism had me respond "Yeah, I'll try". Being the positive dudes that they are, no, you'll... More

Upon our return trip to Maui we had Big Kahuna on our radar again for surfing. We received another lesson from Jesse, and he was a great instructor. In fact we didn't even really think of him as an instructor rather a friend who was helping us out with our surfing. The customer service and experience at Big Kahuna is... More

Had a great time and learned a lot. I lucked out and there was only one other person in my group lesson so we got lots if individualized attention.

Avoid this place and the owner Jeff at all costs. Jeff cares only about your money. I wish that I had read their reviews first. We took a chance and found him to condescending and arrogant. He was demeaning to my wife and myself. Our day was ruined by his angry and rude tone. There are better places to rent... More

We rented a skim board from this establishment for 2 days @$15 per day. We brought the board back within 1/2 of a day (42 hours early) and received a $10 refund reluctantly from the owner. We were also criticized by the owner for having sand on the skim board we had rented. This is a board that is used... More

We are a couples in our early 30s and had never taken surf lessons before. We started with a short lesson on the land then went right into the water and felt (surprisingly to myself) prepared. We did a private lesson and were very happy about it since the majority of the lesson Jessie, our instructor, was helping push us... More

Instructor to student ratio was 6:1 which was just right. There was a 30 minute lesson on land before we headed into the water for about 1.5hrs. The instructor gave us individual recommendations and feedback. Everyone in the group caught waves and made visible improvements. They provide big surfboards (soft topped and stable), surf booties (the water is shallow and... More

My husband, young adult son and I wanted to take a beginner's surfing lesson and chose Big Kahuna after reviewing different companies' reviews. We reserved weeks in advance and were contacted the day before our lesson to see if we wanted to change our time as the session we booked was very full, with several kids. We had an "uh-oh"... More

My 10 year old son and his friend were excited to take lessons. Jeff was super patient with them and they had so much fun. Couldn't wipe the smiles off their faces:). Definitely will do it again.
