If you are a first time surfer and are looking to experience a great surf, you must go to Uncle Bryan's Sunset Surrat Surf School. Go for the 8:30am since it is a bit cooler during that time of day, not to mention it's less crowded. The instructors are awesome and provided easy-to-learn surfing instructions. I crashed on my first wave but then caught 4 or 5 waves. The initial feeling of your surf board catching the wave and having the wave push you forward is an absolutely thrill. Remember to take your time standing up, you have plenty of time! Thanks again Uncle Bryan for being so courteous and accomodating. No questions asked and just had an awesome experience. One of the two best activities I did while in Hawaii. Have fun!
