One of our dreams for our trip to Kauai included learning how to surf--my husband, son (8), and daughter (13) all wanted to learn. We took lessons with Ron from Kauai's North Shore Surfing School, and are we glad we did. Ron was not only very knowledgeable about surfing, but he was very organized, patient, encouraging, and generous with his time. We strongly recommend any surfer wannabes to take a class or two with Ron. When we return to Kauai we plan to look him up for a refresher course to give us a jump-start on our surfing.
