Just finished 3 days of dawn patrol with Caleb. He took me to perfect breaks for my transitioning-to-intermediate skill level, guided me to good take off positions, gave me lots of effective tips and insights, and had plenty of hawaiian surf stories :) Great coaching! Super fun! Also wanna note that Zach's network-mobile operating mode makes arranging and coordinating activities... More

Our group of four had a very memorable session with Zack Howard Surf. Our instructor Caleb was not only very attentive to our mixed levels of experience but to the windy conditions and accommodated all of the elements professionally and with some Hawaiian style. Our first timer successfully caught her first ride and I personally got the hang of the... More

Our 5 person family booked lessons with Kaleb & Tyler. The day we booked was very windy and the chance of us having success was very slim. Kaleb immediately offered to reschedule saying they want us to have a good experience. Disappointed kids but definitely the best thing to do and we appreciated the "customer first" attitude. We have three... More

I booked a lesson with some friends and my daughter and almost cancelled as I didn't think it would be that fun as I am 53 years old and didn't think I would even be able to stand on the board once on the wave. Our instructor, Kaleb, encouraged me that I would be able to do it. I got... More

Totally awesome! Conditions were windy and we had to do a lot of swimming to keep within the surf, but Caleb was awesome...even towed me with his foot so I could keep my energy for the waves. My husband got up the first time. Both of us had at least one long run, and a number of waves. We spent... More

I am totally stoked with how my lessons went with Zack Howard surf. Our instructor Caleb was very knowledgeable and down to earth, and was a wonderful teacher. He knew how to fix what you were doing so you could catch more waves and stay on longer. I stood up a couple of times and even caught one by myself.... More

They made my family and I feel safe and comfortable. Both of the instructors were all about the kids and I was able to enjoy my lesson as well. This was amazing and a must for everyone!!! If you are going to surf, surf with Zack!!! Best money spent:)

We have used Zach Howard twice now. Both times were great and highly recommended. I guess the only minor issue this time was that the surf location was much busier, but then again it was near Christmas on a great day so what can you expect?

Wanted to try to surf while in Maui recently. The concierge at the hotel recommended Zack Howard for private lessons and I signed up. There was a little confusion about where exactly to meet, but found Zack near the location the hotel gave me. After a few minutes on the beach to learn the basics, we were in the water.... More

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.
