Self-regulation guidelines for Surfing and SUP

Self-regulation guidelines for Surfing and SUP On Maui like many other popular surfing destinations we have seen a dramatic increase in people surfing. This includes Longboarders as well as SUP boarders. This is cause for concern as many new surfers do not know the etiquette and rules of surfing, and also many new surfers do not have the control necessary to surf safely in crowded conditions. Here is a set of Updated Surfing Rules to use as a guideline to help make the surfing experience safer and more enjoyable for all: 1) Know your level. Newbies: If you have never surfed or supped, get a lesson. Do not try to learn on your own, unless you are far away from other people. A lesson will show you the basics, and hopefully teach you how to avoid getting stuck in the…

Keiki Camp

Keiki Camp Today we had a great group of local keikis (kids) come to Surf Club and take surf lessons! After the kids finished their snack and got fitted for booties before lining up behind a surf board. After our instructor, Andre gave a lesson on technique and safety, all of the kids helped one another carry the boards out to the beach. Each kid’s face lit up when they caught their first wave. Surprisingly, after the three hour lesson, none of them were tired! They had so much fun learning to surf and to end the day, Dave told them a story about his personal surf experience. Part of our kids camp is ocean and reef awareness. We make sure to teach the kids (and big kids) about ocean etiquette, reef awareness, as well as safety.
