A big "thank you" to our instructor Sharky who taught a rag-tag group of four novices to stand up, ride some waves, and enjoy Maui's beauty!
Before getting in the water, we had a prep session on surfing etiquette and technique with a focus on keeping safe and having fun while also making sure we set our goals (whether it was simply to catch a wave, stand on the board, etc.) Then it was into the water where we talked more about surfing and Maui as we caught wave after wave- all of us with big grins on our faces. Sharky is super patient, ever encouraging, a great teacher, and always focused on making sure you relax and enjoy yourself. I have zero regrets about going with Surfer Girls, and am so glad we found a place that shows such great appreciation and care for their students!
