Reviews Summary

{"reviewer_id":"060096B73ABDDB99CAB0FD8E1FEBD36E","reviewer_name":"Sophie M","review_text":"We called Donnie the day before our lesson to book that day and he advised us to wait until the next morning because the conditions were going to be more favorable. I'm glad we waited because our lesson was amazing! There were five of us (three of us were first timers) and Donnie brought along Patrick to help out. Donnie had a laid back attitude and taught us about the ocean waves before we entered the water. I love how he used the beach as his \"blackboard\" for teaching us about the angles of the waves and the best method for catching them, and he also taught us about surfing etiquette. Paddling out to the waves is definitely physical, so make sure you carb up before your lesson! The lesson was never intense and we all felt at ease. Being in my late forties I was a little apprehensive about surfing, but after catching that first wave, I was \"Sitting on top of the world!\" Donnie takes his board out and helps hold your board and positions you to catch the wave. With his encouragement I was able to catch the waves on my own. I now feel comfortable to rent a board with a buddy and will at least have an idea of what to do. \nThanks Donnie, for a great experience! We loved meeting you and your surf dogs, Hula Pie and Luigi!","review_rating":5.0,"sentiment_class":"positive","sentiment_result":0.9378657169230771,"sentiment_breakdown":[["We called Donnie the day before our lesson to book that day and he advised us to wait until the next morning because the conditions were going to be more favorable.",["positive",0.9313161]],["I'm glad we waited because our lesson was amazing!",["positive",0.9769289]],["There were five of us (three of us were first timers) and Donnie brought along Patrick to help out.",["positive",0.8272318]],["Donnie had a laid back attitude and taught us about the ocean waves before we entered the water.",["positive",0.9375733]],["I love how he used the beach as his \"blackboard\" for teaching us about the angles of the waves and the best method for catching them, and he also taught us about surfing etiquette.",["positive",0.97805244]],["Paddling out to the waves is definitely physical, so make sure you carb up before your lesson!",["positive",0.93922865]],["The lesson was never intense and we all felt at ease.",["positive",0.9572944]],["Being in my late forties I was a little apprehensive about surfing, but after catching that first wave, I was \"Sitting on top of the world!",["positive",0.86137146]],["\" Donnie takes his board out and helps hold your board and positions you to catch the wave.",["positive",0.98009366]],["With his encouragement I was able to catch the waves on my own.",["positive",0.97270477]],["I now feel comfortable to rent a board with a buddy and will at least have an idea of what to do.",["positive",0.96080744]],["Thanks Donnie, for a great experience!",["positive",0.9540456]],["We loved meeting you and your surf dogs, Hula Pie and Luigi!",["positive",0.9156058]]],"reviewer_fake_points":20}

(The bonus was that the other family in our surf class with Donny was currently living in Orange County…how cool was that?!)\n \nDonny gave an overview of stances, basic balance \u0026 recovery, and reminders to just enjoy the waves. This was our son’s first time on a surf board and Donny made sure that getting him confident was key. Our son rode almost every wave, and with smiles all throughout the lesson we knew that Donny was THE perfect choice to teach our son how to surf for the first time. Donny’s instructions were easy to follow and with fewer things to try to remember, that meant getting on the water and on the board for a longer period was going to result in valuable time spent actually surfing!\n \nWhen we go back to Maui we’ll be certain to look for Surf Dog Maui again!\n \nMahalo, Donny and Louie!","review_rating":5.0,"sentiment_class":"positive","sentiment_result":0.9232846788888889,"sentiment_breakdown":[["Donny is a great instructor and his dog Louie is super friendly with us!",["positive",0.993006]],["We knew we would hit it off well when we found out that Donny is also from Orange County, California!",["positive",0.80054235]],["(The bonus was that the other family in our surf class with Donny was currently living in Orange County…how cool was that?",["positive",0.94740415]],[") Donny gave an overview of stances, basic balance \u0026 recovery, and reminders to just enjoy the waves.",["positive",0.95269555]],["This was our son’s first time on a surf board and Donny made sure that getting him confident was key.",["positive",0.96362555]],["Our son rode almost every wave, and with smiles all throughout the lesson we knew that Donny was THE perfect choice to teach our son how to surf for the first time.",["positive",0.977234]],["Donny’s instructions were easy to follow and with fewer things to try to remember, that meant getting on the water and on the board for a longer period was going to result in valuable time spent actually surfing!",["positive",0.9172708]],["When we go back to Maui we’ll be certain to look for Surf Dog Maui again!",["positive",0.84838897]],["Mahalo, Donny and Louie!",["positive",0.90939474]]],"reviewer_fake_points":15}
