I went to Honolulu for vacation in July and decided to try out surfing. I was 48 at the time and I don't ski, snowboard, or skate. Other than riding a bike, I have never successfully balanced on anything that was moving. But I checked out the tripadvisor reviews and found this company because there was a woman who said she was even older than me and they got her to stand up and actually surf on the board. So I decided this company may be the one I need. I got a personal lesson. My instructor was FANTASTIC. I discovered that I couldn't paddle well and he said after 10 minutes of paddling "you only have a two hour lesson, you better just grab my ankle and I'll take you out there." So I grabbed his ankle, and he dragged me and my surf board out there by his own paddling on his surfboard. Each time after I attempted to ride the surf and fell into the water, he would come and get me and pull me back out by his trusty ankle. They had a photographer out there and the owner of the company out there watching me and rooting me on. I had three people to my one person and with them yelling at me to get up, I got up and was able to surf for at least 10 seconds (twice) before falling off. After 1.45 hrs, I was exhausted. But I got the best photo. So it was all worth it. I plan to try surfing again.
