What a great group of expert surfers and patient teachers! Our group of 14 midwest entrepreneurs and spouses was flawlessly guided for an awesome intro to surfing! Uncle Brian himself took us to a great local seafood lunch, followed by a beautiful afternoon paddleboard trip. We all enjoyed the surf "leaders" passion for our success in the waves. We definitely... More

I wish I had taken a lesson earlier in my trip, perhaps would have even taken 2 lessons from them. I had a lesson with 4 other people, 3 instructors out in the water with us and they were all fantastic. I got up on my first wave, and with their tips was able to stay up longer throughout the...

Learned to surf with my wife, 9 year old son, and 11 year old daughter. We all had a great time and the instructors were fantastic. I would recomend Bryan's surf school to anyone headed to Oahu.

Sunset Surratt school treated us to several group-rate lessons during the week of spring break 2015, March 23-30. At the end of the week, we felt like they knew us and cared about us. Uncle Bryan often greeted us as we kept coming back day to day, with new advice and anecdotes of his life. His surf instructors were all... More

Instructors were friendly, knowledgeable, and patient. We had Marcus & Miles whom I would definitely recommend! Starts off with instructions on the beach about board positioning and steps necessary to get from paddle position to standing. Very specific and tailored for each of us. Paddled out to give it a go when my 12 year old daughter got up on... More

So we really had high hopes for this place due to the reviews. We paid for a 2 hour lesson for my 8 year old son. We met Uncle Bryan, very nice guy, super friendly. He talked to us a bit while he looked for a rash guard, made small talk and joked a bit. That's the reason they get... More

My 15 year old daughter and I decided we had to at least "attempt" the North Shore waves before returning home...decided on Uncle Bryan's basically based on reviews only. I had my doubts I'd be able to get up (I'm 43 yrs old, 6'5, 285 and failed spectacularly in Kauai a few years ago) but was immediately assured I'd be... More

Had a wonderful time doing something that I always wanted to do. My wife and I took a trip to Hawaii and booked several excursions. One thing that I wanted to do most was to surf. I have never surfed in my life, so I looked up several surf schools in Oahu and Maui. Based on the reviews of Uncle... More

This was our boys 2nd surf lessons. Instructor was great but due to low waves and over crowding boys felt like they had to wait too long between waves. Probably would have been great with better waves.
