About Us

Aloha and thank you for visiting Swell Maui Surf!

A message from the owner:

Aloha, my name is Enzo, owner and surf instructor at Swell Maui Surf Lessons. 


It is my pleasure to offer quality surf lesson experiences here on Maui where I grew up and learned to surf 30 years ago. My father, Jim, taught me to lead safe, engaging and eco-friendly ocean adventures on Maui’s shores when I was just a kid in the early 90’s. I have been teaching lessons professionally for the last six years and have taught hundreds of visitors and locals to surf on Maui. I am CPR Certified and trained in shoreline rescue. I take pride in showing my guests proper paddle and surf techniques and etiquette. Unlike many other surf schools who try to maximize their student counts and sell photo packages, I focus my private lessons on each individual student and teach them to surf with confidence. I sincerely hope my students continue to use what they learn with me and improve their surfing.


I care deeply for our island home and strive to help our visitors understand how they can travel and surf responsibly. When I am not teaching surf lessons, I enjoy participating in trash cleanups and other community events, spending time with my extended family and surfing and hiking with my wife and friends. I am a member of Ka Poholima Kāʻeo, a hui (fraternity) dedicated to the restoration of an ancient fishpond aquaponic system in Waihe’e, Maui. If you would like to participate in this regeneration of the land, please ask how you can volunteer. I am fascinated with Native Hawaiian history and culture and my surf lessons involve  helping our guests to understand and respect those who were here before us and their relationship to this place. I feel blessed and grateful for my life and humbled by the beauty and fun of the best job in the world!


I hope that you will join me in a surf lesson during your visit to Maui. I promise to provide you with a safe, educational and authentic surfing experience that you can take with you for the rest of your life.
