I had surfed quite a bit before, but was never consistent or confident on the board or understood why things went well one day or badly the next. And, unlike the other visitors in my group, I really struggled through much of my time in the water, but the instructors -- in my case Kerianne and Tinis -- took such an incredibly skilled, patient and personal interest in my progress that I was motivated to keep trying, an effort that paid off when everything somehow came together in an improbable and spectacular ride from out the back at the end of my stay. I also learned enough about how the board works in the water, how to read the waves and what I should be trying to do that I feel I can continue on my own at home, or wherever I might find myself. The beautiful surroundings, comfortable accommodations, warm hosting and delicious meals didn't hurt, either! If you want to learn to surf, or even just improve your game, and feel incredibly well taken care of, this is the place for you -- I'm already trying to figure out how and when I can go back, hopefully for two weeks rather than just one.
