We had a great lesson with Chris. Very easy to understand. He was very attentive and really helped us understand safety. Funny and easy going. I also loved that it was easy to find the kiosk, the surf boards were great and the location fantastic!

Greg was the instructor, and...More

Thank you so much! I really enjoyed being in the water and sharing the fun of surfing with you. It was a really good lesson and you did great! Hope you continue with it and look us up next time you come to Kaua'i.
