My family invited me to go learn how to surf with them and I gladly accepted, so I'm not sure how they heard about Brian but I heard of him through my family. I ended up going a total of three times to surf with Brian I enjoyed it that much! He was so nice, super helpful, and made every... More

I booked a week with Brian based mainly on the Trip Advisor reviews that I had read, all of which were consistently amazing. Even still the week really exceeded my expectations. I had been surfing already at home for around 5 months and badly wanted some one on one instruction to gain more confidence and skills. I am so glad... More

Our family took a basic lesson in Oahu but my husband and daughter wanted more! My daughter's first experience in Oahu was just ok and I wanted her leaving Hawaii enjoying surfing. Knowing that we were headed to Maui- I found Brian with Soul Surfing. Everything I read made him sound like a perfect fit. He was quick to answer... More

I decided to visit Maui to learn how to surf. I was looking for an instructor that would be my coach and teach me the basics so that I would have the confidence to surf on my own. I had "surf" lessons in the past. These usually consisted of some bored tired surfer bro pushing me on a long board... More

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
