Uncle Bryan's Surf School was a great experience in Hawaii. I had never surfed or done anything close in my life and was up and surfing on my first try. The instructors were great and the service was first class. They were very organized, safe, and made the experience very enjoyable. If you are thinking of going surfing or learning to surf in Hawaii, Uncle Bryan's Surf School is the way to go!

Uncle Bryan's Surf School is definitely a must-do when you are in Hawaii! I was very nervous at first. I did not know how to swim and had no idea what to expect. The instructors were very helpful and friendly. They definitely know what they are doing! They were all very patient and fun teachers which made the experience even better. My first time getting up on the surfboard, I rode the whole wave through. It was such an exhilarating and breathtaking experience that I was no longer afraid of the water or even cared that I did not know how to swim. Uncle Bryan is also such a cool guy and made everyone feel like Ohana. Thank you so much!

Uncle Byran and his crew made a promise that each person in our group (about 30 people) would be up on a surf board by the end of our lesson. I was not sure this would happen. Once I met the instructors, I was so impressed with how patient and kind they were to all of us! We spent about 10 minutes on the beach learning how to get up and before I knew it, we were all in the water getting up on our own surf boards! Each time I went, the instructors had little tips to help me do better and it made a difference. The instructors never complained or seemed bored, and showed us some cool tricks they could do too. I had so much fun and I definitely recommend learning how to surf from Uncle Byran and his crew!! You won't regret it.

I had tried surfing a few times before we went to Uncle Bryan's and I loved surfing. After the day I spent with the surf instructors there I had a whole new outlook on surfing. It was such an amazing experience and I will never forget the day I spent there! It was so much fun, the instructors were all so great to hang out with on top of being extremely helpful. When they guarantee you to stand up, they mean it! By far the best way I spent my money in the two weeks I spent in Hawaii.

This place was great. The instructors were super patient and kind and I'm pretty sure everyone in the group of 30 I was with rode the wave. We all had a really good time and I would highly recommend this place to anyone of any age who wants to learn how to surf. They make it fun easy and memorable.
