Me and my son (13) took lessons with 3 different teachers @hst and all of them were excellent. Even after we were "upwind" and kiting on our own the teachers were always willing to answer questions, giving precious tips and all over more than helpful. Great guys! The windsituation was often times hard to predict but Patti did a wonderful... More

We booked windsurfing lessons with our 3 children (7,9,11). We had a very good time and everyone got on the board right away. They have nice and easy equipment for beginners and children. All instructors are nice and friendly with the kids. Some are better than others however. We liked Richard the most for the children as he got on... More

A few months ago I decided to pursue my dream of becoming a kitesurfer. I live on Maui, so I asked a friend who worked for Naish which school I should go to for lessons. He basically told me, "HST. They're the best. End of discussion." I ended up taking seven lessons from them from April-June of this year and... More

I took 2 beginner lessons from HST and found them to be great instructors. They worked very hard to help us to learn how to windsurf. We covered the basics on the shore before starting out and then in the water they spent time with each of us. Would definitely take lessons through HST again.

I had previously taken lessons before, but wanted to give it a once over on the basics as I had not been in over a year. I had Matt as my instructor, he was professional and patient. I would say that if you are on the fence on trying this, just do it. The instruction is top notch, the location... More

My husband and I had a lesson with Scott and had a blast. Neither of us had ever been on a paddle board and he laid out the fundamentals quickly. We were cruising around in no time, and got to hang out with a great guy in the process.

Wind Surfing with HST was the 2nd to last thing I had planned while I was in Hawaii and unknowingly that it worked to my favor. I signed up for the introductory lesson which is about 2 hours but HST will require that you check in 30 minutes before the lesson since you will need to go to the office... More
