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

I did a semi-private lesson with Ossian and had such a great time, I went back out with him for a second lesson the same week. He's from the big island and has been surfing there and all over the world for his whole life. He's incredibly knowledgeable about surfing and his expertise shows in his teaching. He keeps the...

Went to the Big Island with my teenage son, a friend and her family. The 3 teen boys took a lesson and had a blast. They got personal attention and were up riding in no time. These guys are great and super nice just what Alpha means!

Our teen girls took a private lesson from Ossian (pronounced Ocean) and had a great time. Both were able to get up on the board quickly and had a fun time in the water. Equipment was good and water was warm. Ossian even did a head stand while surfing a wave!
