While I was not satisfied with MY personal performance for my first ever surf lesson, I was really happy with Justin's expert instruction. I've wanted to try surfing my whole life and Justin was very good at introducing the sport and making me feel comfortable at the same time. I was pretty nervous and his ability to crack jokes to disarm my anxiety while at the same time being very clear about safety guidelines and techniques for beginners was awesome. I think it was due in great part to the experience with him that I want to get back in the water, conquer my fears and get up on that board to finally feel what surfing is! Mahalo, Justin!
CLEAR and repeated instructions. Lots of jokes and positivity! Wet suit/booties and surfboard right size and manageability. The negatives were beyond Donk's control: it was freaking cold, overcast. Took me 20 mins in a hot shower to make makes fingers stop tingling. I had to cut the lesson short over 30 mins early. ;-( Donk ---> where did you go?! We never got those fotos out by ur surf shack. Thanks for the lesson, it worked. Andrea
when your kiddo says "mom, i want you to sign me up for a million more lessons." You know it was amazing! Thank you so much for being so wonderful with Oscar!
Girl Power -- three tweens standing on boards within an hour, thanks to Coach Donk. His careful eye to safety while instilling confidence inspired the whole group. Having everything at the ready -- wet suits, boards, best surfing spot for lessons -- added to the joy filled morning. Best of all -- the memories made and the desire to surf every day.
