Overview

We are located at The Whaler's Village Shopping Center in Kaanapali. A booth on the boardwalk near the ocean. We are adjacent to Leilani's on the Beach Restaurant. Look for the booth that says "Maui Dive and Surf" and "Island Style Adventures"....we're the surf instructors in the yellow shirts! We are locally owned and take pride in offering a 5 star experience, we boast the smallest student:instructor ratio of 3:1 on the island. With service being our number one priority (actually second to safety), our personable staff that are Lifeguard and CPR certified, will ensure that you have the time of your life. Be careful though, you just might become one of the many returning guests that become "family" to us! Can't wait to have you join us for some serious fun in the sun!

Such a fun time! Had the 8am class and had a 2:1 class instructor ratio. Great hands on coaching and plenty of time to catch waves. Was able to pop up and ride right away!

Matías was a great instructor. He was organized and professional, and 100 percent focused on my learning. I couldn't believe the quality of the photos, either. I never buy pictures, but this I was an exception. So glad another reviewer reminded me to bring cash...More

We had an amazing time during our first surf lesson with Geoff at ISA. I was doubtful I'd even be able to get up once, but with Geoff's instruction and patience, my husband and I were both successful many times during our two hour session....More

I tried 2 different surf school in Maui, and this one proved to be very professional and the only one with a ratio student/teacher of 1:3 (vs usual 1:6). It makes a big difference having 1:3... and it's worth it. Great coaching and tips. Highly...More

Amazing surf lessons from Steven. We really enjoyed it. Caught plenty of waves, semi-private lessons. We both got up quickly, not to say we didn't fall plenty of times but still had a blast and got up several times too!More
