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.

Our kids wanted to take surfing lessons and our hotel couldn't accommodate us. We saw Uncle Bryan ' s van and stopped. Mark was awesome and so sweet! He not only got us going, he called in two instructors just for us! It was so cool and they were awesome instructors! Love you guys! Thank you so much!

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

By husband and I have never surfed before, but after about 15-20 minutes out in the water we were both catching waves! This lesson is well worth it and a great experience. The instructor was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. If you want to learn how to surf, this is the place you need to be!

I had Christian for an instructor back in June, and he was phenomenal! He was a lot of fun, helped me paddle back out when the arms got tired, and above all he knew how to get me up on the waves! There was a group getting a lesson from another surf school right by us, and I think they... More

We booked a 2 hour paddle boarding lesson by telephone. When we talked with Uncle Bryan he made sure we knew where to meet him. We arrived about 20 minutes early and he was waiting for us. Our worry was paddle boarding on the ocean with swells and waves. Our instructor " Uncle Mark" was so reassuring on how we... More

As a mother, we worry when we send our babies out into the ocean with mere strangers. So what if those babies are really teen age girls. Kudos to uncle Bryan and his crew. After keeping an eye on the girls for 30 minutes, my husband and I wrre able to walk away with peace of mind and take a... More
