Had a lesson with Kyle and it was fantastic. I have taken other surf lessons before and he is the best teacher I have had. He really takes into account your skill level and goals, and gives you very specific instructions tailored to you. His explanations are very thorough and clear and I really felt like I improved even with... More

I was in Kauai with three girlfriends and we took lessons from Kyle. He even took us out later than their normal time! He was an extremely patient and amazing instructor. And his friend helping us wasn't too shabby either ;). Aloha my new friends!

My husband and I called last minute to book a surf lesson, and they were very accomodating. Our instructor was Kyle. He was waiting for us when we arrived and spent time orienting us to our boards and the basics. During the lesson it started to pour and he said that while it would be just fine to go out... More

Had a great lesson with Kyle. He thoroughly explained what I needed to do and why. I was able to ride in a pretty short amount of time and received feedback throughout to keep improving. Good lesson and patient instructor, highly recommend!

A friend of mine and I were vacationing in Kauai with our granddaughters and them signed up for surf lessons with Margo Oberg based on their great reviews. And we were not disappointed!! Kyle was the girls instructor for 2 days and they had a wonderful experience. Thank you Kyle for making our trip memorable!!

We were a large group; 12 of us (mostly novice or less!) but the experience was great. Once we got in the water they got us all located in the right spot (not easy with that many) and they were expert at positioning us for the coming wave, giving us a boost and letting us paddle forward to attempt the...

Kyle was awesome with our kids ages 10 and 13. They both rode waves their first few times out. Would definitely recommend him.

We had an amazing lesson! Highly recommended for a first timer. For never having surfed , and being raised and living in a land locked state, my husband and I don't have much knowledge of reading waves or understanding the ocean. By the end of our lesson, I felt super comfortable about what I was doing, and what it felt... More

My boyfriend and I had a blast surfing with Kyle from Margo's Surf School last Sunday. It was our first day on the island, and we decided we wanted to kick things off right by trying surfing for the first time. I called and spoke with Kyle that morning. He called right back and was able to accommodate us with... More
