Wahine Kai, Maine's All-Girl Surf School was established in 2006 in Kennebunk, Maine. Due to our successful word of mouth campaign and reputation for providing the best surf instruction in the area, we are fortunate enough to not have to market our business. Through word of mouth business, we sell close to $15,000 of surf lessons every summer season. We also have a number of school groups and recreation departments that we have partnered with to provide large group retreats in addition to our daily surf lessons and camps.
Since we are Maine's only all-girl surf school, free press comes easily. Women's surfing is gaining in popularity and it is always an interesting news feature for the media to cover. We have been featured in the Boston Globe, Eastern Surf Magazine, Elle Magazine, BBQ with Bobby Flay, and USA's Ready for the Weekend to name a few. We also have a loyal Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter following and frequently update our followers with photographs or new events. Our website, www.themainesurfschool.com currently has 3,000 unique visitors a year accessing our site. The domain name was chosen because we are one of the top listings to appear when people search for "Maine Surf Lessons".
This turn-key operation is easy to operate right out of your home and no surfing experience is necessary. It is a great supplement to your existing income and simply entails you answering the phone, responding to emails, handling payments, and scheduling surf instructors. The Program Director (who is willing to return) handles all beach responsibilities including set-up, instruction, supervision, and take-down each day. She also provides a quick report every afternoon on the current day's operations.
