Our instructor Matt was great and everyone in our group got up on our boards. Great patience and great energy. We had a groupon coupon which made it a great deal. A bit out of the way and we were a bit late due to taking the bus but there was no issue - we were on island time :) The only downside was that the area where you surf is rocky and shallow and it's hard to avoid hitting the rocks - so really listen to them when they tell you how to fall properly!! i learned the hard way.
