I recently paddled my third Maliko Run with HST. Christian was a great guide and very helpful. Patty arranged for everything so all I had to do was show up, paddle, and have fun!

Vickie was my husband's instructor for 90 minutes, even with low winds she did an amazing job. He was able to meet his windsurfing goals for the day. She is professional, punctual and attentive. Awesome.
