We had Akima for our instructor. We did a semi-private lesson Standup Paddleboarding for 2 people. He asked what we wanted to do, and I said we wanted to try surfing on this SUP. He said fine and took us right out into the waves. After a few bruises trying, we did catch a few waves. There was a photographer Andre, who got some shots of us surfing and falling. At least there was evidence we actually got up. We did end up purchasing the set of photos for $45. 2 hours was more than enough time. We were exhausted. We were at the Lahaina location and did the 7:30 am lesson. It wasn't crowded and was easy to get free parking right across the street.
