The instructor seemed very unengaged with my 11-year-old daughter. She had a private lesson the weekend before with a different company and had an amazing experience. This instructor gave her very little direction, was often 15 or so feet away from her in the water, and didn't let her know when the lesson was approaching an end. The previous weekend, she kneeled multiple times on the board and stood 2x. Last weekend, she did neither. For a private lesson for a child, I'd expect a more hands-on approach. I appreciate he was giving her space to manage the board independently but she needed more direction as to when to try popping up etc.
