Amit is the best surf instructor I've had the pleasure of working with. As a beginner, I came to Santa Theresa looking to improve my skills in surfing. I had some experience with surfing before, having surfed in Bali and working with several instructors over there, so I began my first lesson with Amit with high expectations. Needless to say, Amit blew my expectations out of the water. Here is why:
1. Amit is an honest instructor, who tells you exactly what you need to know and what exactly you need to do in order to improve your skills. After every lesson I had with him I felt as if I had taken my skills one step further
2. Amit's primary goal is in making sure you enjoy your time surfing, which means that he is not focused on the clock, but on making sure you have a good time
3. Amit is highly educated on the technical aspects on the sport, and he gives you the lessons which will help you improve your surfing even when you are not around. For example, he gives great instruction on positioning, when to start paddling, how to judge the strength of the wave, etc.
Finally, Amit is a great guy, with a very positive energy who is fun to be around. If you are in Santa Teresa to surf, make sure you catch at least one session with him.
