Our family just got back from a week on Maui and kiteboarding lessons with HST. Overall, this is a very good school with nice staff. Not all HST kiteboarding instructors are equal in their care with students, outfitting them with the right gear, and being inclusive with all members. If you want to be successful in the shortest time possible,... More

My husband and I took lessons together one morning with Jack. I chose to stop after about an hour. My choice although Jack kept quietly encouraging me to try again. My husband took to it well. He returned for two more lessons the next week. The classes were big, 7-8, so the two instructors had their hands full. I sat... More

Aloha and thank you for taking the time to send your kind words about your windsurfing lessons! We share your concern regarding the feral cats and chickens, in fact I am happy to tell you that the Mayor's office just held a meeting on this very issue. I hope that it will soon be no longer a problem. More

I just had my kite lesson today with Erin and I had a fantastic experience. I was concerned because of the shark attack happened the week before and Erin let know exactly what really happened and which area to stay away from. He followed me on the water with a surf board and even though it was windy (...it IS... More

Our Windsurfing lesson was exactly what I had hoped for when I scheduled this activity. My daughter, a friend (both 20), and I (52) were all novices. I had hoped that our instructor would be able to teach all of us adequately based on our age differences. Neil was thorough in his instruction, and more importantly, patient. He gave us... More

Alan Cadiz' HST Windsurfing School and kite surfing lessons can't be beat! From an administrative side, HST was extremely accommodating and flexible with my schedule. On the beach and in the water, Lyam and Andrew were fabulous instructors! Both were very patient, reassuring, personable, and thorough with my lessons. After a few short lessons I was up and riding in... More

I did the beginning course, and the instructors were absolutely amazing. They were so patient and their explanations were clear. I was pretty proud of how well they conveyed the information and it made learning much easier and the conditions that day were absolutely perfect. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is wanted to learn how to windsurf.
