I took Celeste Harvel’s Windsurf Kauai class on April 8, after observing a portion of her previous Friday’s session and concluding she was an engaging and very effective instructor. I signed up and my lesson was outstanding, although I was the only one in the class that following Monday. The concentrated instruction resulted in very fast progress and I actually made it through the level 2 class and achieved certification, which I understand is not the norm (it usually takes the beginner and advanced class to do that) Anini Beach and Lagoon is huge and a great place to learn as the wind is moderate, constant, and blows pretty much down the beach, allowing almost a perfect tack from the beach out to the reef and back. The lesson lasted about 2 hours and I’m stoked with the results. Thanks Celeste!
Aloha Jeff, Mahalo for your feedback. Sounds like you had an awesome time out on the water with Celeste. She truly is an amazing teacher, I will pass on your gratitude!
