Maui was amazing. There is no other destination like it in the world. I'm eager to share with you one of the best highlights of my trip ~ surf lessons with Zack Howard!
Years ago, I tried surfing, but after a bad accident that put me in the ER, I've been too scared to try it again.
It's taken me years to build up enough confidence to even attempt another lesson. Zack helped me tackle my fears and was the most incredible teacher. His patience and positive feedback really put me at ease, not to mention he's been a lifeguard for 10+ years. I felt so safe within his company, and he let me work at my own pace. One lesson turned into five... Just like that!
After getting to know Zack during our early morning lessons, it became clear to me just how much his family means to him. I heard so many wonderful stories about his wife and children, which just made me want to meet them more. Did I mention he's a world famous surf legend? One of the evenings before I departed Maui, we decided to meet for a casual family portrait on Paia Beach where Zack and his wife Sarah were married. The kids were amazing and the sunset was perfect, and everything made for a dream photo session. I love it when this happens because it just feels so effortless. There is a natural beauty in their smiles... They are one stunning family. It literally took my breath away in the editing room!
If you are looking for an amazing private or group surf instructor in Maui, I guarantee you will not find anyone better than Zack Howard.
Mahalo, Zack for breaking my fear of the waves. I can't wait to return to the island... I'm counting the days!
