Kirby helped me learn how to do a 360 while surfing. He was very patent and gave me great advice to help me advance my abilities.

Our family had a blast with Kirby. We did a half day and everyone got up and wakeboarded. Kirby is a pro for a reason. Cant wait to go again.

What a great experience! Kirby is so knowledgeable, patient and wonderful with children. Kirby taught our youngest to knee board and our two oldest to wake board/surf. We will be attending Kirby's school again next summer! What a great person to spend time with.
