This was one of the most fabulous adventures we had! We had so much fun learning to surf. We had an excellent instructor and made it seem less like a class and more like an afternoon of friends catching some waves. By the end of the day we were way past the beginners stage and we had made a great local friend.
We really enjoyed the tour because we were able to view the volcano from all sort of great vantage points. We recommend a tour with a geologist and a native to the island. We had plenty of great snacks and drinks along the way, but you should be able to know how to switch gears on a bike to make it easier on yourself. The tour was great, we were a little sad we didn't see any lava but that is because the lava flow has moved to another side side of the volcano. Speak to staff about a special tour that offers views specifically of the volcano. Overall the staff was very up on their knowledge of geology and the history of the flows.
