Although my wife and I stayed in Waikiki, we traveled up to the North Shore specifically to take a lesson with Uncle Bryan and his team. It was well worth it! Our instructor, Cru, was fantastic. Both of us got up right away and rode several waves each during our lesson. We also bought the DVD (shot by videographer, Keith), and felt like it was worth the extra expense. Great souvenir! This was a real highlight of our trip. Everyone from Cru, to Keith, to Lisa, to Uncle Bryan himself were extremely friendly and helpful. I would recommend this school to anyone!
