My kids (Boy 11 & Girl 14), my wife and I (47) went to visit the North Shore of Oahu for the day and wanted to learn to surf. A friend who is a local told me to look for Uncle Bryan's Surf School. When we found the location we walked up and there he was. Uncle Bryan himself. He... More

My son and I took a lesson and had Alex and Joel as our instructors. We had a terrific experience from the start. Everybody we met were friendly and helpful. If you are on O'ahu and are looking for a surf lesson, I highly recommend Uncle Bryan and his team. You will not be disappointed. We did not, but if... More

Based on our son's recommendation, we booked a two hour lesson with Uncle Bryan's school for four of our family, with a wide variety of ages. The equipment was in top shape, rash guards provided, and really skilled and helpful instructors. We all got up during the first two hours. There is an open sided tent on the beach that... More

My wife and I had a lesson with Uncle Bryan's on our honeymoon and it was awesome! The instructors were all super friendly and wanted to make sure we got the best waves since it was our honeymoon. The class was nice and small (only about 6 people) but there was 3 instructors in the water with us so everyone... More

We couldn't come to Hawaii without trying surfing. Our kids are late teenish and Uncle Bryan and all of the instructors were fantastic. They had a good eye for the waves and helped pick a wave and provide instruction and assistance that would ensure success. We wondered whether the kids would get up but they got up very quickly and... More

It couldn't have been better. We called the morning of the lesson and met Bryan and team just north of Laniakea beach. Alex was the instructor and he had the kids up on the waves the first run. I just wish we had time to send the kids everyday.... maybe next time.

We came upon these guys by accident and definitely did not regret it. We were actually looking for Turtle Beach and ran into Uncle Bryan. Ended up sending all 6 kids out for 2 hours of lessons. It was great- they all got up and surfed for real. There were three monitors out in the water with them and it... More

We stumbled across Uncle Bryan's on our visit to the North Shore. Our daughters (9 and 11) and our friend's daughters (9) wanted to take surf lessons and we signed them up right there on the spot. They took a two hour lesson - it was the 4 girls and a 20 something young man with 3 instructors. Everyone was... More

Thanks so much to Uncle Brian and his fantastic team of instructors. I spent most of my morning with Jax and he had me up and riding waves from the first set and taught me lots of techniques to improve throughout the lesson. By the end I was doing better after 2hrs than I'd ever done as a teenager spending... More
