Great personal lesson!

We had a semi-private lesson at Thousand Peaks beach. My hubby and I really enjoyed ourselves. We were able to stand up almost immediately and had no prior experience. My husband... read more

Brian and Bennet are local surfing instructors who really do know what they're doing. We thought if we are going to learn to surf, Maui is the place to learn. The reviews on TripAdvisor could not be faulted. We had both Brian and Bennet as our instructors for all 8 of us and we were managed very well. Our youngest... More

We had a semi-private lesson at Thousand Peaks beach. My hubby and I really enjoyed ourselves. We were able to stand up almost immediately and had no prior experience. My husband was better at it than me but it was still fun. Brian brought all the gear needed. I will say I probably should have used a full wet suit... More

My partner and I had a lesson with Brian on Jan 1 2016, literally right after we got engaged! It was the perfect way to celebrate and have fun :) Both of us first time surfers, we were shocked at how quickly we got up! All thanks to Brian's teaching. For starters, he is very responsive on email, and so... More

I highly recommend Brian for the following reasons. First, he is honest. The first day we were scheduled to surf, he called us in advance and told us the surf was flat and not worth our time. We rescheduled for the following day. When we arrived the surf was great but very windy (like 40 knots!). We followed him to... More

My friends and I were in Maui last week and decided that we can't leave Hawaii without doing surf lessons. We didn't want the "tourist" experience and having to do it with the convenience of our hotel beachfront. There are a bunch of schools that offer lessons but what stood out to me was the pictures Brian takes during your... More

Brian was absolutely a great guy and super surf instructor. My whole family had great time and I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting some one on one surf lessons. He even takes amazing "action" photos and sends them to you as part of his fee. He is guaranteed fun! Thanks Brian!

I surfed with Brian at the start of this year. He tailored our surf excursion to my level and found a nice beautiful spot just as the sun rose. He a great teacher that will help you get better. Look forward to surfing with him again.

I can't say enough good things about these guys. The title alone peaked my curiosity because this is basically the kind of folks I wanted to learn surfing from. People who are stoked, respect nature and the ocean. I emailed Brian to ask a few questions. The communication was prompt, informative and real friendly. Our lesson was Friday September 11... More

Our group was quite varied: two mid-fifty year olds in fair to good shape, one 41 year old yoga buff, and a 20 year old who is fit and, of course, young. Two men and two women. Brian was able to get everyone in this group up and riding the waves. He clearly has figured out how to be an... More
