Our surf lessons take place in the beautiful city of Lahaina on the island of Maui. Lahaina is very hot and dry about 80% of the year. If it rains it only sprinkles for about twenty minutes max.

Surf School Maui

Hang Loose Surf Club had an awesome summer break thanks to our many returnees and new friends that joined us for some Hawaiian fun in the sun! Our beginner surfers had a great time catching, surfing, and riding the longest waves on Maui at the Lahaina Beach. We provide protective water shoes, rash guards for sun protection and beginner soft top surfboards.

September to November is our slow time which is a perfect time to sign up for surf lessons to beat the summer crowds.
