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.

HST has a great thing going. The price and length of lesson were great. Not only that but the instructor, Matt Kerstein, was superb - really knowledgeable and easy to work with.
