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

Mom and the littles 10,12 went paddle boarding with Mark and another guide. We were concerned that about our 12 year old paddle boarding due to the fact... More

Our family has been surfing multiple times throughout the years but it had been awhile since our last time. We decided to sign up for some lessons with Sunset Suratt as a refresher, and to basically find a safe, tried and true location to surf on the North Shore that wasn't difficult. We signed one of our kids up for... More

Uncle Bryan's school provided us with an exceptional surfing experience! We had 5 instructors for 6 people, who never left us alone and really paid attention to fixing our mistakes, and making sure we learn something at the end of the session. We even had a dedicated photographer who swam around us, thanks for the great pictures! I highly recommend... More

I had a great experience with this school. I had never surfed before my HI visit, and earlier in the trip took a lesson in Waikiki, just enough to be able to get up on a board on tiny waves. I was visiting the North Shore and decided to do another lesson. Check-in was easy, and they had me on... More

There were nine of us in our group. 5 kids ages 12-3. My wife and I. And my mother and father in law. They sent 6 instructors out in the water with us. The waves were perfect. The instructors were awesome. All five kids had a great time. Maybe the best part of the whole trip.

My girlfriends and I went to Oahu for a week to surf. While we used to surf quite frequently in the past few years it has been pretty sparse and one friend had only tried once. We were planning just to do one lesson at the beginning of the week but had such a great experience that we went back... More

I went to Uncle Bryan's for a Stand Up Paddleboarding lesson (SUP!). The instruction was perfect and with just me and one other student, we were able to do a guided portion and still have time to play around in the water on our own. Really enjoyed the trip and would totally recommend Uncle Bryan's school for anything in the... More

My wife and I went to Uncle Bryan's just recently on our 10 year anniversary. The experience was one of the highlights of our entire trip to Oahu. We had Vi and Uncle Mark as our guides/instructors for a 2 hours SUP tour up the Haleiwa River. They were both extremely patient with us as we learned. Vi coaxed us... More
