Royal Hawaiian Surf Academy invites you to join us as we take you from the sand to the sea. Kimo Kinimaka, is our “Chairman Of The Board.” He has dedicated the past 21 years teaching the ancient Hawaiian sport of surfing.

Eleven years ago Kimo started assembling a group of expert coaches; men and women that shared the same passion for surfing and love for the islands that he has. A passion that he has carried and passed down from his own Royal Hawaiian ancestry.

That enthusiastic group of surfers became the core of an organization that has taught thousands to safely read and navigate the power of the Pacific Ocean…. on a 60 ounce board! :-0

Please take a few minutes to get to know us. Each of our coaches has written a little bit about themselves so you can see what they’re all about. They would be honored to meet you in person.

This crew is super confident but not at all into “blowing their own horn,” so please take a look at what others are saying about Royal Hawaiian Surf Academy on Trip Advisor, Google + and Yelp (Links are below) Thank you for checking in with us. Please book a session right here or call us 808-276-SURF (7873) We’re here to help and teach.

Date of birth: 12-02-87 Home town: Lahaina, Maui Best results: 2nd Honolua legends of the bay 06′ Favorite surf: Windmills Biography: I grew up on the island of Maui where my love for the ocean began at a very young age, I started surfing at the age of ten. As a kid growing up in a small town I had the privilege to have a core group of best friends that all pushed each other to the next level of surfing and to this day I consider all of them my favorite surfers. My competitive side for surfing faded as I became older but I never stopped loving the sport and it’s progression. I started to teach surfing with the Royal Hawaiian Surf Academy at the age of sixteen, which was a dream come true. Sharing my passion and seeing the stoke through my students eyes is a feeling I can never replace and it validates my want to teach anyone willing to learn the art of surfing. I am very blessed to call this a “job”. Over the years, surfing has taken me to beautiful and humbling destinations around the world which I am very thankful for.

Johnny Pitzer   Hobbies: As well as surfing I grew up dirt biking, bmx biking, skateboarding, canoe paddling, fishing, hiking,  spear diving, cliff jumping and all kinds of other outside activities with a great group of neighborhood kids who’s each and every main passion was surfing.  Mostly all of us have made it into the surf industry in one way or another,  a few turned out to be top pros and are now competing around the world for the title each year… I started teaching surf lessons off and on for Royal Hawaiian Surf Academy when i was 16, now I’m 25 and have been teaching full time for them for the past five years and I love everyday of it. I live in Honolua Valley where I am currently working on restoring native growth and rock walls around an ancient Hawaiian Heiau (temple).. it has become my second passion and the surf lessons have been a great job to live both lifestyles. I get to have fun surfing and I get to fund my restoration project while teaching both passions to all that come eager to learn. I am now doing private surf safaris and tours for those of you who want to learn as much as you can about surfing during your stay in Maui. I’m always here for local kids and adults who need a surf coach and some positive motivation. Aloha, hope to see you soon…
