Finding restaurant or hotel reviews is easy these days. However, speaking of windsurfing instruction, there is very little information on the Internet. Not even basic registry out there... Am I missing something?

I have seen a list of schools on this site.
Does it matter where?
In Maui Pitchard with Shawna Cropas run one of several well reviewed schools.
Cadiz and HST rate well too.

There are more hotels and restaurants in existence than there are windsurfers (let alone instructors.) Instruction is generally location specific, and information about who and what is available usually can be found where you're learning about the location.

That being said, people ask about instructors in this forum all the time. If you have a "who is available in spot X" question, or a "has anyone taken lessons with "Y" or done a "Z" clinic, this is an excellent place to get info.

It's a small sport. Try googling for a registry of lacrosse instructors or reviews...

not much use to relay about the best instructor in Bonaire when you want instruction in Texas........

because someone is a world class sailor does not make a good instructor, trainer

to some extent you get what you pay for, heard very good things about Matt Prichard and Shawna , as mentioned previously.

Wyatt Miller and Tyson Poor offer some great instruction, the OBX classes are so resonable.

Andy McKinney of Wind N-C is top notch.

any IMO you need to spend some time with to break bad habits and create a new program, with some new things

Anyway aren't you scheduled for an ABK clinic (you asked for ABK comments awhile back). You'll be with some of the best instructors this side of the planet.
