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.

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!

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.

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!

We totally recommend this experience! Specials thanks to Flash as an amazing teacher!! He explained a lot, took a closer look on our technique and was very patient with us. Thus, it didn’t took us long to surf on our first waves. What a feeling! Honestly, we couldn’t have asked for a better teacher. If you want to learn surfing, chat with locals and feel as you were hanging out with good friends, then book this experience. Thank you, Flash! :-)

In an attempt to push myself out of my comfort zone and help alleviate some of my fears, I signed up for a surf lesson - I am so thankful I did! I spoke with Maui (Maurice) on the phone in the weeks leading up to my trip and was intrigued by his energy, professionalism, and passion for the art of surf and the organization he had created. The StreetWaves message and mission is powerful and I would encourage you to read up on it. The instructors/volunteers are genuine, passionate, professional, and experienced. I felt calm and safe while out on the water. My fears slowly began to subside leaving me with only the utmost respect. Being in and on the water is therapeutic - there is nothing quite like it. This is an experience worth having and an organization worth learning about and supporting. Spread the word!
