The spot where the lessons is done is called "Breakwall" and is just south of Lahaina Harbor. For those who want to go along and watch or take pictures, you can walk out on the breakwall and you will be very close to the action!

Learning to surf
is a LOT easier than most people think. While it isn't particularly
difficult to learn, it isn't intuitive at all! Some people just go
out and rent surfboards and try to teach themselves ... trial and
error is a lousy way to learn to surf. There are important issues
about balancing your body and particular steps to learn to be able
to get to your feet that you aren't likely to figure out on your
own. Take a lesson and you will catch more waves while you are here
learn on a "soft-top" longboard ... it is a forgiving and
stable platform on which to ride your first waves. Rash guards are
worn to protect your skin from the surface of the board ... and reef
walkers are special shoes that are designed to protect your feet
from sharp coral and sea urchins.
often surf the area where lessons are held in Lahaina ... there are
a variety of surf schools, but I book with Outrageous Adventures
because I KNOW that they do the best job of instruction. I have seen
students with other schools who spent most of their time watching
their instructor surf without them!!! Don't let this happen to you
... book a surf lessons with the best!
out there and catch some waves!
