Maui Surf Academy Owner and Head Instructor Matthew Allen also offers a variety of specialized training and coaching for local contest circuits such as WSA and SSS as well as travel coaching to local breaks and travel coaching outside of the state and country. Matthew Allen learned to teach surfing from the Kinimaka family who are legendary in the Hawaiian "Sport of Kings" while living on Maui and Kauai. Coach Allen has taught surfing since 2003 nationally and internationally, has been featured on MTV's Living Lahaina in 2007, operated Maui Surf Academy since 2010, coached Sage Creek High School to an undefeated 1st season in 2015/16, and has competed in WSA and for The Swamis Club in the West Coast Coalition of Surf Club Events. In 2021, he took 1st place in the Malibu Surfing Association's prestigious MSA Classic Invitational longboard competition.
In January 2023, after months of lobbying every Navy official he could reach and gathering recommendation letters, Coach Allen changed policy and became the oldest ever enlisted recruit in The United States Navy. He is currently stationed out of San Diego, enabling him to continue his passion for facilitating the best surf experience around as well as fulfilling his dream of further serving his country and community.
