Very nice, patient and knowledgable instructor.

This was really fun, although I did stand up only very few times (which I blame myself for), I had plenty of fun and caught quite a few waves. Also this is a nice workout, although 3 hours seem to be short, at the end of the 2-day session I was pretty much done.
