Great Time at the Windsurf Instruction

Mark did a great job of training us and getting us going on our own. The winds can get a little strong for learning but that is Maui.

Thank you for the 5 star rating! So glad to have the opportunity to teach windsurfing to you and your son during your Maui vacation! I hope you can windsurf again at home or that you can come back to Maui again soon. We have instructional DVDs available on our website too if you want more help. Aloha! More

Spent 2 afternoons with Christian from HST at Kite Beach and was very impressed with his thoroughness and focus. Great instructor. Patty C at HST made scheduling and gearing up easy. Thanks HST!

HST has a great thing going. The price and length of lesson were great. Not only that but the instructor, Matt Kerstein, was superb - really knowledgeable and easy to work with.

My husband and I completed two windsurfing lessons with HST. The instructors were very helpful and we were sailing the majority of the time even during the first lesson. One of the instructors was even nice enough to take a couple of photos and e-mail them afterwards. I would definitely do this again!

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.
