Josh was a patient and detail-oriented teacher who helped me get over a plateau and get out riding more confidently in a new place on those beautiful Maui waters.

They use Core kites which are the best kites you can buy. Friendly folk. They were able to get me from never flying a kite in the water to standing up and making turns on a board with the kite in less than 3 hours!
