Despite its name, MSG offers coed surf and SUP instruction for groms and Betties alike. Owner Dustin Tester is a big-wave surf pioneer; she’s among the first women to charge “Jaws,” one of the planet’s biggest breaks, and her commitment to helping others shred waves is inspirational. (She even coached her dog Luna to hang ten alongside her.) Personalized lessons at Ukumehame Beach Park with Tester or her teammates start at $89. But MSG’s best offering is the weeklong surf camp. If you’ve got a teen girl who dreams of growing gills, sign her up for 7 saltwater-soaked days full of watersports, camaraderie, healthy food, island adventures, and campfire counsel. The Olowalu Campground serves as headquarters for a transformational experience.
