Would 100% recommend KSM with Josh and Jesse. My husband and I contacted KSM the day before we booked and were lucky enough to snag a morning lesson with Jesse. This was our first time kite boarding. Everything was easy in terms of booking and instructions from Josh on where to meet him. Communication was great and Josh reached out the morning of and evening after our lessons. Jesse was very thorough in explaning

I’d received a couple of recommendations for kite surfing lessons while in Maui. I went with KSM and so happy I did. Josh reached out the day I got there to let me know the wind wouldn’t be strong enough to go out on the first day is planned. He stated in close communication and we were able to reschedule lessons for 3 days that had great winds. Josh was a fantastic teacher - super knowledgeable, personable and patient. Really enjoyed getting to know him and starting the journey of learning to ride. Have already started working on my next trip to come back to take more lessons.

Josh was an amazing kiteboarding instructor! Everything about our experience (which included a semi-private lesson and a follow-up private lesson) was outstanding. Several things stood out: 1) Josh's focus on the key foundations, including safety, preparation, kite/wind dynamics, and building the mental map for ongoing progress; 2) Fun: Josh made all aspects of this fun/enjoyable/positive; 3) Easy logistics: From booking the lessons to coordinating where to start and more, Josh made it as simple and hassle-free as possible. In my professional career I spend a lot of time teaching, and I walked away inspired by how high Josh set the bar. We're looking forward to coming back to Maui and continuing our kiteboarding progress--and fun.

KSM was so great, professional- recommend the private- one on one with radio helmet- got our teenage son who had kite skills but not water start- up on board- he learned so much and had a blast! Jessie was an excellent coach- josh a pleasure to book with. We had to reschedule due to wind- great communication and planning. This Covid year has been hard on business so tip well- they deserve it.
