Thoughts of Hawaii often conjure images of big swells and pro-surfers. That’s true, but did you know that Maui offers ideal locations for both experienced and beginner surfers? In fact, this is a great place to learn to surf and to let your kids give it a go too.

Surfing Basics

  • Learning to surf can be tricky, but there are plenty of surf shops in Maui where you can rent a surfboard or hire an enthusiastic instructor to help you learn the basics or improve your technique.
  • Learning to stand-up paddleboard will give you some of the basic skills; once you are comfortable with paddleboarding, it should be easier to pick up surfing.
  • The West side of the Island offers big waves for experienced surfers but you will also find safe locations for novice surfers on the South and West sides of the Island. Do your research before getting in the water, though, to be sure the location you’ve chosen is appropriate for your level of experience.
  • If you’re wondering when to plan a surf vacation to Maui, the winter months offer the best waves and surf.

Other Maui Water-Sports

Of course, one of the main draws of Hawaii is that you are surrounded by the Pacific Ocean and there are loads of water-based activities to take in while you’re here, in addition to surfing. Some of our favorite aquatic activities that we recommend while visiting are:

  • Scuba diving
