About Us

Welcome to the Club!

Looking to learn how to surf or improve your surfing skills? With our surf lessons, we don’t just teach you how to surf — we teach you how to be a great surfer! And since we offer a variety of lesson types based on your needs and the size of your party, including private lessons, we can guarantee you’re going to catch a wave after your first lesson!

Are you looking to enjoy an unforgettable experience on a stand-up paddle board in a reef-protected lagoon? Our stand-up paddle (SUP) lessons are offered for all ages and are available all year round! It’s the best way to discover the beauty of Lahaina!

Our Maui instructors all have a professional CPR/First Aid certification and have dedicated their lives to surfing, so we can guarantee you’re going to have a fun and safe experience!

Meet Founder Abner Nakihei Jr.

In addition to being a Maui surfer, I grew up playing baseball, basketball, soccer, wrestling, and football. I got a football scholarship and played college ball at Missouri Valley College in a small town called Marshall, Missouri. Three things that I love: cinnamon rolls, pizza, and my family. I am married to the most beautiful woman in the world, my wife, Joanna. We have the smartest and cutest 7-year-old daughter, Madison.

I am a native Hawaiian, so I am thankful to live in Hawaiian Home Lands (similar to an Indian reservation except we don’t have casinos. Shucks!) Surfing allows me to share my Hawaiian culture with people from all over the world. It is my priority to keep all my students safe in and out of the water. I absolutely love teaching families and kids, and it’s important to me that you have a good time and feel comfortable surfing.
