What’s better than getting right into the good stuff when you just arrived to paradise? Surfing was on the agenda for our first day. From Wailea, we drove about 30 minutes north/west towards Ukumehame Beach. The three of us signed up for a 2 hour surf lesson through Maui Surfer Girls. It was an incredible time. I actually learnt how to surf properly. The last time I surfed was in Tofino – which consisted of teaching myself (super frustrating at times). Dustin, our instructor, was amazing. She told us all the right things and fixed all the technical issues I had previously. Her patience was immaculate and I left her lesson feeling super confidant. I caught a wave on my third try – that’s pretty good teaching in my books. I remember her mentioning the feeling you get when you catch a really good wave – it’s addicting. Good thing Maui Surfer Girls offer rentals for 20 dollars a day!
Before we left, Dustin handed us this free trucker hat! It was the end of customer appreciation. On top of having a great day surfing, being given some swag was the cherry on top!
