I booked a surf lesson with Brian for myself and my boyfriend. I went from the reviews on Tripadvisor, and his website, and we were not disappointed! He deserves his 5 star rating. My boyfriend and I are both beginners, and were both standing up by the end of the lesson. We had a blast. Brian was friendly and easy... More

We had 3 boys and mom and dad- everyone had a great experience! Brian was methodical in the way he taught. He has a very pleasant disposition and we all enjoyed his style. He had everything we needed, shoes, rash guards, boards. He even takes photos and mailed us a CD- at no extra cost! We will keep Brian's number... More

I got Brian's name from Matt Pritchard, a good friend of mine, a windsurfing legend, and one of the best windsurfing instructors these days. Brian has been surfing since his early age and I bet you he is as great at Ho'okipa's Jaws as he was with us at the Ukumeame beach. Brian has a great attitude and a skill... More

You will have the experience of a lifetime surfing with Brian!!! Brian is so engaging, you can't help but have a wonderful time, and you will learn to surf so quickly. My oldest daughter gained even more from her experience. While hanging out on the boards waiting for the right waves, she and Brian talked a lot. Learning of Brian's... More

We had the most amazing holiday in Maui. We had travelled a long way to get there, but Brian made everything so easy. He helped with all the equipment and chose the best surfing (and lunching) locations. Our children (7,10,and 12) all loved surfing with Brian and we have some very special memories to take home. Highly recommended

When visiting Maui I wanted to get out and surf, after a 27 year hiatus, so I connected with Brian at Soul Surfing Maui. The experience was Top Notch!! Brian meets you at the best spot for beginners and/or those looking to polish their skills; without the pressure of crowded surf spots. He provides all the equipment you need and... More

The surf lesson with Brian was absolutely a wonderful family experience! Brian was great with the kids and all five of us were actually surfing! My children (5, 8, 11) thought this was the best thing we did on our trip! Highly recommended!!!!

Me, mt wife and two of our friends took lessons from Brian at Soul Surfing on our most recent trip to Maui. We did the small group lesson, which I highly recommend. So it was the four of us plus Brian. That's it!! Brian goes over the basics of surfing on land and you are in the water within 10... More
