Surfing with Brian is a real pleasure from booking, to paddling, to standing up on your first wave, he is present and helpful the entire way! Brian was able to recommend a great surf spot for a mixed private group (two beginners and one intermediate) and was able to get all of us riding and smiling big for the entire... More

After some very thorough googling, Brian seemed like the obvious choice for surf lessons in Maui. I'm so glad the Internet was right! The advice and support I got exceeded my expectations. I was travelling by myself and Brian made sure I had everything I needed to enjoy my time in Maalaea. The lessons themselves were amazing too. We surfed... More

My sister found Brian through Trip Advisor a week before we arrived in Maui for the week. He was quick to respond and schedule - our first day he took three of us (two beginners + one intermediate) and all three of us had so much fun with Brian's guidance. Additionally Brian brought out his waterproof camera and snapped some... More

Really enjoyed the couples lesson we had with Brian. He was patient while ensuring we kept up the pace to have as much action as possible. This is about as far as you can get from the run-of-the-mill, standing-in-line, group-surfing thing. He took some great photos, too.

My family and I recently were in Maui and after reading reviews chose to book with Soul Surfing. Brian, our teacher, was excellent. We had no problems finding him, he was in communication with us the night before our lesson as well as the day of. He was great with our teenagers, and his instruction was easy to understand and...

Brian is sooo good at what he does and it shows when he teaches u! I'm not a swimmer and he got me out on the ocean (kept me in about 3-4 ft of water so if I fell off the board I could just stand up) and to my surprise, I got up on the board immediately! All his... More

We surfed with Brian May 2015 and had an amazing time! He brought all the gear that we needed and gave us a quick lesson before letting us try it out in the water. He was really encouraging and everyone in our group got up on the board and caught a few good waves before we left! Everyone loved it... More

Surfed with Brian April 27th-May 3rd. Had great communication and assisted even prior to getting on the plane. He communication continued out in the water and at night always touched base with where and when the meeting point would be the next day. He even took the time to show us around town. The pics and dvd at the end... More

Brian is a great teacher -- my two teen daughters and I took a lesson with him and had a fantastic time. He strikes a good balance between teaching the basics and then just getting out and surfing. He's friendly, patient, and exceptionally kind-spirited. Brian did a terrific job communicating with us before the lesson, confirming the appointment and the... More

Brian was a great teacher! None of us had surfed before but he was patient with us and even got my fiance out who can't really swim. LOL! We had a blast, until my stepdaughter got hurt by a sea urchin. Brian was very nice and helped calm her down and get as many of needles out of her as... More
