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.

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
