Private Lessons With Kira Kosarin

Growing up in Hawaii, surfing wasn’t just a lifestyle but a religion. In fact I spent half the week surfing, and the other half giving lessons to local tourists, bored housewives, and ambitious entertainment types who thought surfing should be part of their L.A lifestyle. The first time I met Kira Kosarin she was just 20-years-old, and vacationing on the island with her family and friends. As it turned out the young actress wanted to learn to surf, and I was more than ready to take the $60 (an hour) fee. Sadly, Kira was no means a natural, and so uncoordinated on the water is was amusing. Not that it really mattered of course, since she was paying by the hour and was intend of spending the entire day with me. Over the next few hours our lessons merely consisted of nothing more than some hold-and-push. You know, where she’d lay on the board and I’d give her a nudge…
