Had a great time learning to surf with Caleb! His instruction was attentive and enthusiastic. He was able to multi-task between helping both kids and adults during our lesson. It was an amazing hour and a half session. Everyone was able to get up on their boards and ride the waves! Will definitely do again!

We were referred to Zack Howard by a friend. My boys are 6 and 9, and none of us had ridden a surf board before. I was a little skeptical about how it would work logistically, but Caleb taught us the basics and we were out in the water in 15 minutes. Caleb had a great manner with everyone, and... More

Would highly recommend! Caleb was a tremendous instructor, and we all got up on our first time. If vacationing to Maui defiently book a lesson from these surfing pros. It was well worth it!!!!!!!

We just came back from a trip to Maui and arranged two surfing lessons for a a few adults ands kids (ages 7 to 12). Zack and his other teachers took us out to a great "easy" beach and we all had a great time. They helped the kids with the paddling (by pulling them behind their own board so... More

My wife and I enjoyed a semi-private lesson taught by Caleb. It was a proper surf lesson not just some photo-op. Like others have said before, he was a great teacher! The waves were a little flat that morning but Caleb made every effort to help us catch every one we could! He was funny, extremely knowledgable and friendly, but... More

Our party of 5 was looking for a great active experience to cap off a great vacation. We happened upon Zach Howard surf and are thrilled that we did. We were all beginners and ended the day 5 for 5 with each of us able to ride! Absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for surf lessons.

Zack did an amazing job with our small group of five cousins (ranging from 8 to 15 years old). After five minutes they were paddling out to the waves. All of the kids caught multiple waves to include an eight year old who was pushed past his self-described "comfort zone" -- and ending up loving surfing. I am very impressed... More

This was a totally worthwhile experience. My husband and I took a lesson with Caleb and had a great time. He was a fantastic teacher and we were able to spend most of the time surfing and not just figuring out how to stand up. And if you see this Caleb, google slalom water skiing- that's how we play on... More

Today my friends and I had a group lesson at Puamana beach with Caleb and Taylor, and it was awesome. They were both so nice, encouraging and knowledgeable. Caleb was great in letting us know where he waiting for our arrival, and even saved us a parking spot because it was crowded. They were with us the entire time in... More
