Group lesson - 5 people - 3 instructors. Great time. We had private area on beach (a VERY rare thing in Wakik) where instructors were great. Jake made it all enjoyable. Many waves with no danger of hitting anyone- better than Maui experience for that.

This is a great place to learn to surf. They break surfing down into 4 easy steps and everyone in our class stood up by the end of the session. That provide everything you need, you just need to show up. I highly recommend.

Our instructor had us up and surfing in no time. Well organized and a lot of fun. Definitely worth the money, but see if your hotel offers a discount.
