Our whole family has been coming for lessons with Brett and Jason for the last three years. Every year we get better thanks to their help. Our kids have learned to 'read' the surf and are truly in love with the sport thanks to the lessons hey have had. I highly recommend the experience to others.

While on Maui, my family took group surfing lessons with Zack Howard on Ukumehame Beach. Our lessons were at 7 a.m. The conditions were awesome and the view was breathtaking. We received instructions on the proper technique on the beach (and again out in the water) and then went out to catch some waves. My 9 and 12 year old... More

I just went surfing for the first time this morning and I loved it. I'm 42 and got right up on the board. It was the highlight of my trip to Maui and wish I had done it at the beginning of the trip so that I could go out again before leaving the Island. I totally recommend Zach Howard... More

Hadn't hit the waves in a quarter century, and was really looking forward to introducing my 11 yr old daughter to the sport I once cherished in my prime. We opted for the private 2 person lesson to maximize our individual time on the water with a professional. Zack had my daughter up before I could even get the camera... More

My sister and I took our 1st surf lesson with Zack. We had mixed expectations but with Zack's help all 3 of us, including my 60+ yr old dad got up and "rode the waves." We all felt safe and enjoyed the whole time. Bring rash guards and wear board shorts because the saltwater and your board can give some... More

SO MUCH FUN! My family had such a blast surfing with Brett and Shaka - they happily met us at the beautiful Ukemehame Beach. They had rash guards and booties if we wanted - all sizes too, as my kids are 6 and 8 years old. They had us down on our surf boards for a lesson right away and... More

I was nervous about trying to surf for the first time but Zack met me exactly where he said he would and we went from there. I practiced on the beach for a few minutes then we headed out to the water. I was nervous too because I had seen other places with tons of people and surf schools. I... More

Just spent 10 days in Maui and wanted to get a full experience of surfing so we planned on going multiple times. We used Zack Howard Surf and it was an amazing experience. Brett Sherrin was our instructor each time and did a fantastic job. On day one he worked with my wife and I and she rode the first... More

This is our second family trip to Hawaii and our first family surf lesson. Weather was perfect and surf was perfect for beginners ( constantly rolling in 1-3 ft surf) Perfect day for us all to learn. The class size is kept small (3-4) and for us it was a private family lesson. My wife, my son (10), my daughter... More
