I bought the lessons for my 22 year old son while we were vacationing in Kihei. He had so much fun! My daughter and I sat on the beach and watched. First the team of instructors went over some basics on the grass in front of the shop. They practiced for about 30 minutes. Then the whole group headed toward the beach. There were several instructors and I saw my son interacting with 2 different ones while in the water. They were both attentive, positive, encouraging and helpful. It was amazing to watch and my son catch waves said he had a great time!
