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

If you are looking for a more personalized surf lesson on Maui, then Brian is your guy. I set up a lesson for my wife and 7 year old daughter during spring break. Brian went the extra mile to make sure we had a great surfing experience! He takes the time to find the right spot with ideal learning waves... More

We had a fabulous time! My family (ages 49, 40, 9 & 8) had never surfed and my boys are tiny little guys who, while very confident in the water, are not what I would call strong swimmers. All of us were up and surfing first time and having a blast from the beginning of the lesson to the end.... More

Brian was recommended to me by a friend and he was a fantastic instructor. He gave us some great basic instructions and got one of us up on our first try! We were only in Maui for a short time otherwise I would have booked more lessons, I was so impressed with how much we learned in just 90 minutes!... More

Awesome experience! Brian is a great instructor and everyone was able to enjoy the lesson and catch some waves. He was able to work with us in a small group (ages 29-51) and individually to match our varying ability and comfort levels. Highly recommended!
