Surf Lesson Photography and Videos

In addition to great surfing and stand-up paddle surfing lessons, we offer photos and videos during your lessons so that you can look back on them and share them with others for years to come.  Read below for more info!

Sunset Suratt Surf School works closely with Heath Thompson, a surf photographer and North Shore native. Heath’s goal is to, as they say, capture the moment. He can capture you at your best and edit video of your surfing experience—together with beautiful island scenery and local music—to be burned on to your very own Hawaiian surf vacation DVD. Heath’s photographs and edited DVDs are the perfect way to bring home a piece of your hawaiian vacation to friends and family.

All of the videos that we do for our students are shot in high definition format by experienced North Shore surfers. Our videographers and photographers also serve as extra helping hands in the water, providing a greater level of safety and instructional support to our classes (i.e., they help our students throughout the lesson, as well as ensure everyone’s safety while in the water). Our service is one of a kind and we pride ourselves in our work and our teaching. We look forward to enjoying the ocean with everyone and creating the best experience possible!

Uncle Bryan and his instructors are great. I cannot recommend them strongly enough. They had my 13-year-old and 7-year-old sons surfing in minutes. Bryan uses a much lower ratio of instructors to students than most other schools (there were 2 instructors for 4 students in our group). They took FANTASTIC care of our younger son, surfing right behind him so they were there when his run ended or he fell off the board. There were also two adults in their group (a husband and wife). Both “got up” ~10 times, and were very, very happy with Sunset Suratt. Plus, they are really nice guys. No pressure. Beautiful beach. If you want to surf the North Shore, give Bryan a call!

Uncle Bryan knows how to teach you to surf! My wife and I had the time of our lives with his expert instruction. By the end of our lesson (we had never surfed before) we were catching waves and riding them all the way to shore. I noticed other instruction companies and their customers not do half as well as we did. Uncle Bryan knew where to put us in the waves and guided us with expert tips. Learn to surf here! Highly recommended!‎

For anyone looking to experience a bit of real aloha and learn basic surfing skills, Sunset Suratt Surf School is a must! I return to Hawaii frequently and continue to employ Uncle Bryan and his crew to further my surfing and enhance my North Shore experience. Bryan’s true aloha spirit and easy nature make it a pleasure to enjoy the warm Hawaiian surf again and again. Do NOT miss this opportunity if you ever visit Oahu!
