Who are some of the best SUP instructors on Maui?

I’d like to get some recommendations on SUP instructors on Maui for myself and friends coming to visit. I’m at the level that I can downwind very well, and I’d like to learn how to SUP in waves more effectively and safely.

I’ve only ever taken one SUP lesson, with Jeremy Riggs. He’s amazing! The proof is that I just got 1st in my division in the recent 2014 Olukai Maliko to Kanaha race. Here’s an AWESOME video of my lesson with Jeremy with some tips on how to read the bumps, which was key in the Olukai race!

I’ve heard that Suzie Cooney, Dave Kalama, and Buzzy Kerbox all give great SUP lessons.

Here’s me with Suzie Cooney, Jeremy Riggs, and Mokai-Oahu prone paddler, Hogan Kania.

Please reply with your recommendations, or if you give lessons, please feel free to post some details on what you offer in terms of lessons.
