I went to Uncle Bryan's with for a class a few weeks ago and even in our large group I still felt like I was treated like an individual and that they really cared about our success! They were very helpful by first showing you on land and then picking out waves once you were in the water. I was... More

We had a huge group of 26 beginners. Everyone was really attentive and organized, it was perfect. There were a couple people who were really nervous and the instructors put them right at ease. They were so nice and easy going and really cared about everyone's individual experience. Most importantly, we all successfully stood up! Best place to learn to... More

All of the instructors here are very helpful and knowledgeable. They know exactly where to bring each person and how to get each person a wave that they'll be able to handle. Everyone in our group was able to stand up on plenty of different chances. Highly recommended to get lessons here!!

We had an amazing experience with Uncle Bryan's Surf Academy on the North Shore! His team was extremely professional and made my husband and me feel completely safe in the water. Our instructor Kalani was nothing less than spectacular! He is an experienced local who has a huge knowledge of the surf breaks. He challenged us to stretch our comfort... More

We found Uncle Bryan's Surf School on the internet. It was our favourite activity of our 2 week vacation in Hawaii. They were a great bunch of guys who were both friendly, knowledgable and professional. We had a great time with them and they didn't even mind coming out to teach us to surf on Christmas. I would recommend them... More

I took #52 bus all the way from Ala Moana Center to Haleiwa, and it was about two and half hours to get there. Bryan's tent was not far away from the bus stop, you can find it easily. I had a private lesson with Joel few days ago, and he was very patient to teach me even though I... More

Found Bryan's tent no problem along the North Shore. We got started right away practicing on the beach and then headed for the water. The instructors helped tow us out in the water which at first we found unnecessary but soon after greatly appreciated their paddling tow! We were up and surfing quickly with their help and had a great... More
