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

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
