Am I going to wipe out while learning?
Yep, falling off the board is guaranteed. It's part of the fun - splashing into clear, warm tropical water. The electric motor will automatically shut off the propeller immediately and the board will stop moving, which makes it pretty easy to quickly get back on. And unlike traditional surfing, you won't have to paddle back out and wait for another good wave to try and catch - as soon as you're back on the efoil board you can start up again and go in any direction you wish. Like every recreational activity that involves speed and/or the ocean, there are a multitude of dangers but your safety is our #1 priority. To help keep you safe, you'll wear a well-fitted PFD and a lightweight surf helmet. All lessons start with a pre-flight ground school safety briefing, risks are minimized, and your instructor will very close by the whole time.
$325 per rider, for 2 hours of non-stop fun. Special group rates are available. We offer an early morning session that starts at 7 am, and a second mid-morning session that starts at 9 am. If you want to maximize your odds of calm water riding conditions, select the 7 am session. Māʻalaea Bay tends to get windy and a bit choppy by noon, so we don't offer any afternoon sessions because we don't want to set anybody up to struggle or fail.
