Our kids, 11 and 9 years old, had a great experience with Uncle Bryan (Surf Suratt). The instructors are very experienced and good at teaching beginners to more advanced students. We had 10 lessons in 2 weeks and they not only enjoyed their time but also got much better on the board. By the end, both kids were able to... More

My 14 year old wanted to surf in Hawaii, so we decided to get him a lesson. A local surfer from the condos we stayed recommend Surf Suratt. No brick and mortar shop, just vans and tents...keeping it simple. Miles was the instructor assigned to my son...he did a great job. My son got up on his first try and... More

The best $80 bucks I've ever spent! I just finished my second surf lesson here and I'm beyond stoked. They give you great instruction while making sure that you catch a ton of waves. A great crew of guys here. I'll be back again for sure. Top notch!!!

Uncle Bryan's surf school was recommended to me by a friend. Our family of 6 all had an amazing time. Our youngest is 13 and has arthritis so I was worried about how she would handle it. Marcus, Crew, and Marshall were great instructors. She had the highest success rate at getting up and staying up. Towards the end they... More

We have been to Hawaii many times, but we've never had the time to take surf lessons. This time my husband and son (9 years old) really wanted to try surfing. We didn't have any reservations. We called on Monday morning about 8 and Uncle Brian said if we could make it down there by 9 it would be good,... More

Great instructors, knowledgeable and safe! Got our entire group of first-timers catching waves on the first try, and countless times after that. Really helpful coaching on land and in water, these guys know their surfing. Photos are amazing, well worth the cost. I would absolutely take more lessons with this surf school. Highly recommended!!!

Bryan, Heath and team were great. We were paddle boarding in no time. They worked with us at a comfortable pace, yet give us the opportunity to get as challenging as we wanted. We saw lots of turtles out on the water and had a great time! Their boards and paddles are in great condition. We'll definitely be back, and... More

Stumbled upon their spot on the beach. So happy we did. We (3 adults and 2 kids -- 9 and 13 years old) wanted to paddle board, but didn't make any prior reservations. Walked up and spoke to "uncle Bryan". He was very friendly and set us up with a lesson right away. We had 3 instructors for our group.... More

The instructors are great at adapting to not only the group but the conditions as they change. Jax did an amazing job of giving us all pointers and being certain we were all comfortable and having fun which isn't easy when the age range was 11-42. Would do it again tomorrow if I could. Big thanks to Jax and Olly... More
