Why use a surf instructor?

Most surf spots around Maui are dangerous due to sharp, shallow reefs, strong currents, sea life and advanced crowds. With instructors, you can steer clear of these dangers. Surf instructors will take you to spots that are safer to paddle out at, and they give the equipment needed to keep you from hurting yourself or others (padded boards, booties for the reef, etc…) With their expert instruction, you’ll understand how to fall and how to avoid other challenges. Learning on your own is ill advised and can be dangerous or potentially fatal.
