What you'll do

We'll meet at the beach and get you fitted with your equipment and surf gear. After, we'll introduce you to surfing techniques on the sand. Once you've got the basics down, we'll hit the water to practice! Time to connect with the water and feel as one. We'll chat on the beach about the surf scene in Florida and the work being done at StreetWaves. We’d love to share some of the local foods spots and have you feeling like a local in no time.
Other things to note

I am the founder of StreetWaves and at the root of the organization is the power of forgiveness. In 2003, my younger brother was brutally murdered by a gang member and at his funeral I made a promise to help inner city youth. Now, I honor this vow by teaching under-exposed youth how to surf and swim in open waters. My hope is that Airbnb guests will appreciate the work that we are doing and go home and share our story and experience with others. If I am not your host, one of our amazing instructors: Christina, David, Thaddeus, Jason, Timy, Symon, or Jake will get you up and riding some waves! We are the official Endless Summer Surf Camp and pride ourselves in having an awesome experience. Don't miss this Experience.

About the organization: StreetWaves



StreetWaves' mission is to empower and mentor under-exposed youth through surfing. Our goal is to inspire and expand the opportunities of children by providing access to get off of the streets and into the ocean. We believe that the majesty of the sea and the mastery of the ocean cultivate courage, confidence, commitment, and character.

This is a social impact experience where 100% of what you pay for this experience goes to StreetWaves.

Where you'll be

Depending on wave conditions, we will meet and surf at Deerfield Beach or Delray beach. Deerfield beach is a super cool little surf town by the sea. Delray Beach has great surf with a lot of great restaurants to replenish after hours of surfing.

Maui The Magnificent provided an amazing experience on the water. His personality and passion is infectious and within minutes of his instruction I had accomplished more on the water than I had in my whole life. He really cares about what he does and he lives the lifestyle. Street Waves is the way to go. We even spotted an old shipwreck. I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone looking to attack and overcome their fears! @Aygemang

10/10 recommend this experience. Maui has the biggest heart, such an inspiring story and truly loves what he does. He not only loves teaching people how to surf... he is good at it as well! I was a little skeptical at first when he assured me I would make it up on the board but sure enough all his hard work paid off. If you're in the area be sure to schedule a lesson with Maui. You will not only leave with a great experience but also knowing the proceeds all go to such an amazing cause.

This was a great experience! My friend Jody says it was unforgettable! The instructor was kind, patient, and so laid back. He made us feel like champions when we were successfully surfing. Jody said she learned from him so much about the ocean, she really liked that.

So glad I did this. I always wanted to surf, and now am in a place where I could have fun with a board on my own. Without this lesson I would have floundered and probably lost interest.

We are so lucky to have found Maui for my daughters surf lesson. Right away you could feel his passion and knowledge about surfing and life. He makes everyone very comfortable. The one on one session was exactly what my daughter needed. He had the right touch of teaching, guiding, then making her do it independently. She felt so good and proud when she was able to do it on her own by then end of the lesson. Looks like we may be finding a place in New England to keep it up!
