Surf Lessons by Margo Oberg
Reviewed 29 July 2012

I'm not sure what happened for the other two families reviewing this surf school, but their experience doesn't sound anything like the experience my family had. I'm a mom, a teacher and an old camp director. I've taught a lot of things to a lot of kids for a lot of years. All I can say is that the guys from the Margo Oberg Surf School were awesome. They showed up on time, were fully equipped, discussed some safety and etiquette basics, and did a little dryland practice session before hitting the waves. Then, they had both of my kids up and surfing in about 5-10 minutes of being on the water. They are 9 and 11. The other people in our group were also up and surfing almost right away. I'd give them two thumbs up in every area from punctuality and safety, to teaching ability, humor and general encouragement. Maybe they had a flakey teacher working for them for a while? Don't know, but we had an excellent experience.

We scheduled a surf lesson with Margo Oberg two days prior and were told when and where to meet near the Shereton in Poipu but nobody showed up. We were told by our pool services staff that someone else was also stood up a couple days earlier. They don't take any money in advance, which is good, but it was a waste of time.

The instructor showed up half an hour late with no surfboards, no surf booties, no shirts, and had to mooch the equipment from other vendors that were set up in the meeting place (Aloha Surf Lessons for one). Our two daughters did not get into the water to begin a lesson until almost an hour and a half after the lesson was to have begun. We unfortunately went with a recommendation for this surf school in an old Frommer's travel book. The next day we used Aloha Surf Lessons and they were wonderful. Don't waste your money or time on Margo Oberg's school. It and its instructor, Alvin, were a joke and a rip off.
