We dropped our 11 and 9 year old off at Pome and they took them out on the waves for the morning. The kids had a great time and were able to catch waves on their own very quickly. Their guide was awesome and they came back with lots of good stories to tell!

My brother, my father and I took a surf lesson with Walle and it was perfect! We learn to be independent and to understand the sport as well as to pick the right waves! We all catch our very first wave by ourselves in 1 lesson! Plus, Walle gave us a lot of infos about the islands and the surf around the worl, it was very interesting!
I recommend!!!

Walle and Becky have a great business. My sons took semi- private surf lessons with Walle. They absolutely enjoyed themselves and were standing up after a few attempts. Walle is a great instructor and guide. Would highly recommend PormeMaui for anyone looking to learn how to surf or to have Walle scout the perfect surf location in one of his safari tours.

I took a 3 day private class with Wallee
Fantastic experience,
Wallee has a degree in Marine Biology and therefore teach you a lot about the ocean
On the water he stays with you learn you how to recognise great waves then correct you and give you always gentle positive and efficeint advices
Fianlly you are not on the clock and some session may last 4hrs
When combined with Yoga class this is just the perfect combo

Had a surf lesson with Wally, one of the owners. It was a 1-on-1, and it was absolutely excellent. Can not recommend highly enough.

The shop itself is great; very welcoming, very chilled, does coffee and Kambucha and the staff are happy for you to hangout and talk any topic from surfing to yoga to travel experiences. They’re really interesting to talk to and very open people.

The lesson itself was fantastic. Wally has a great scientific understanding of surfing and he can tell you as much or as little as you want. I’ve already been recommending the experience to others. It’s a little pricey, but honestly it was worth it. He aims to get you to a point that you understand how to surf and read waves so that you can try to do it yourself and not feel like an idiot. Money well spent in my opinion and it’s a pleasure to support locals who care about Maui and the community.
