As someone who is not a good swimmer and has a general fear of the water, attempting to surf was something I wanted to try, but assumed I would not be good at it. Without Ossian and Casey, there's no way I would have got up on the board. They are truly great at helping you learn how to surf.... More

Found this surf school while browsing the internet and decided to go with it because of the great reviews. What a fantastic choice we made! Ossian and Casey were great instructors! Our group was small and made it so it was like a private lesson. They watched and gave pointers for each of us to help us get up on... More

I had a blast learning to surf with my 15-year-old son and definitely recommend FBI Surf School. The price was reasonable and included all equipment. Ossian also has partnered with a photographer who shoots your session an posts pictures to a website reached from the FBI Surf School home page. The only downside - but not enough to lower my...

My 8 year old daughter talked all of us into trying surfing. I'm so glad she did! Ossian and Dwayne were fantastic! All of us were up and riding in no time. The guys worked really hard and were absolutely fantastic with our kids (8 and 12). We had a blast, and I now know a little bit about the... More

What a great instructing crew at FBI surf school! Even for those of us gravitationally challenged it was a fantastic morning on the water, enjoying the waves, and the beauty of Hawaii. This is an island kingdom so find all the ways to play in the water you can. And Ossian and FBI are one of the best. Just remember... More

Our 9yo, who had s little prior surf experience, had a great experience with Scotty. FBI was easy to work with and did a great job!

My husband and 2 teenagers booked in for a lesson with Ossian. The lesson was so successful we signed up for more!! Ossian and his instructors have a safety first mindset, are very knowledgeable, very supportive and just wonderful teachers. We had an incredibly positive, fun and successful experience. Lots of laughter, surf and sun... a dream come true.

Thanks to Ossian and D.W. my 7 year-old son and I had an amazing day. I was able to get up and ride and my son rode tandem with Ossian. They were so patient and laid back which made our day. Ossian had a smile on his face the entire time while working with my son. The location was perfect... More

Ossian is a safe, knowledgable surf instructor who has A LOT of experience with kids. He and his son were prompt and ready to go as scheduled. Their equipment were in good order. The location was ideal with waves that were not too big and not too small. Me husband and I enjoyed the view from shore. The kids loved... More
