Quality of Instruction: Excellent My husband and I went to Al for lessons in preparation for our Hawaii vacation. My husband was afraid of the water and didn’t want another vacation where he sat on the beach while I had all the fun. He had previously spent a bundle on semi-private classes for adults who are afraid of the water to no avail. My Husband worked with Al for about two months and learned various swimming strokes and techniques and the proper use of equipment, including snorkels, masks, paddle boards, fins, wetsuits, etc. My Husband was so excited about his progress that I signed up with Al as well. I have always loved water but still wound up learning a great deal by refining my swimming strokes, breathing techniques, etc. Al loves all water sports. When we expressed an interest in scuba, Al generously spent a whole Saturday with us, about the tanks and BCD's in tow, in a friend’s pool teaching us the basics. Our vacation was wonderful. We swam, snorkeled and even got our first scuba certification together. Amazing! I do not believe this would have been possible had it not been for Al’s excellent instruction. Al is very keen on safety and I feel it was this emphasis on safety that helped my husband overcome his lifelong fear of water because he FELT safer in the water and consequently, much more confident in the water. Al is very thorough and takes pains to make sure you understand each step of what he is teaching you, prior to going on to the next step. In between classes, we would receive emails reinforcing what we learned. We were so pleased with our experience that we signed up, our 16 year old for lessons as the only exercise our son was getting was pushing the buttons on the video game controller. His physical condition has improved to the point that Al's now taking him out to the marina and he can swim 3,000 yards non-stop. Our son has passed the lifeguard certification swimming requirements testing and will be getting his lifeguard certification this month. Make no mistake. Al’s lessons are not lightweight. He will work you out, he wants you to give it your best, but he is also sensitive to what your needs are, is not pushy, gives positive reinforcement, and takes the time to develop one-on-one relationships with his students. I would not hesitate to recommend this knowledgeable and capable instructor to ANYONE. You will learn everything you need to know and more and have a great time doing it.

Bud is fantastic- an amazing and inspiring coach. I've seen him work with beginners. The result is laughs and easy progression to standing up and riding. Bud has personally tuned my surfing. I surf better than I did before and he helped me make my turns more efficient and I'm now fantastic on my backhand. I also got my stoke back. I am immensely grateful to Bud. I can't say enough.

I had a 2 hour private lesson with Jeff. It was my first time surfing and Jeff made sure to give me a great overview before we even went into the water. I can highly recommend 1 on 1! Really enjoyed my day and would go with Jeff again! He's a real pro and knows exactly what he's doing. I felt really safe as a beginner even when some "big" waves came! Thanks!

very unique and fun way to learn to ride your board with KTB's kitepole and boat. I learned how to get up on board, balance and transitions all in just 45 minutes versus several hours on water with just my board, kite and light winds. I highly recommend lessons from KTB!

Before I moved to San Francisco I was a lifeguard on the beach in Oregon for three years. An active lifeguard certification, 12 years of surfing experience and a 4.98 star Uber score means I'm your guy!
