SUP Surfing Lessons

Ready to have a great time surfing Hawaii’s best waves? We’ll give you personalized instruction on waves that are perfect for your skill level. Work on the skills you want and get great feedback, guidance and access that will take your surfing ability to the next level. Outstanding equipment and everything you need is provided. We’ll make sure you have a great time. $300/person

Boards For All Sizes

We put a lot of care into what we do, and that extends from our students’ safety out on the water to the quality of instruction to the quality of the boards that we provide for you to ride. And that includes having a board that fits your body size and level of experience. We’ve got everything from 12′ Surftech Laird Hamilton models designed by Ron House (a world-reknowned shaper and close personal friend) to 9’3″ “Ripper” custom-shaped boards by Blaine Chambers of Paddle Surf Hawaii (another good friend that we’re proud to know). And we’ve got all kinds of shapes and sizes in between. We know that having a great time on the water starts with having a great instructor and having the right equipment, and take pride in making sure that you’re covered on both of those points!

As Challenging As You Want It To Be

The great thing about stand-up paddling is that it’s so versatile: it can be just as fun on calm, easy water as it is out in the surf. Stand-up paddling is a great way to catch and ride waves of all sizes, a great way to get a full-body endurance and core-strength workout, and a great way to just relax and spend some time out in the beauty of the North Shore’s environment. It’s all a matter of what you’re into and what you like to do. No place in the world has the level and variety of waves that the North Shore of Oahu provides. If you’re into wave riding, we can teach you how to catch waves and we can take you to some of the best breaks on the planet. But we also know that not everyone wants to go charging in the surf. So, while our instructors are all great wave riders, we’ve also got some great easy tours for individuals and families that want to just have a fun, relaxing time outside and on the water. There’s a good chance you’ll see turtles, peacocks, and some other cool wildlife, and you’ll definitely see a lot of the local scenery. Just let us know what you’re interested in and we can put together something that fits you!

Get Started in Hawaii and Take It Home With You

One of the great things about stand-up paddling is that you don’t need to live by the ocean to do it. All you need is water and a board. And it’s a great way to stay in shape year round. Whether you live on the coast, or near a lake, river, or reservoir, it’s something that you can experience, learn, and keep with you long after you’ve left Hawaii!

Photography and Video

Get great photos to share with your friends and remember your experience for years to come. Our professional photographer will join you in the water and get perfect shots of you having an amazing time. Just add photos and/or video as an option when you book your lesson online!

Very fun for the family! We had the kids, youngest is 8. I was a bit worried about safety, but they have a good system of how they keep track of everyone and a 3:1 ratio. Everyone was able to stand up pretty quickly and the instructors were very good - friendly with great instructions. I think their price point is a bit higher than others, but I can't compare the quality. Definitely happy we did it and appreciated the team!read more

We had the most amazing experience with Bryan and his team! Our youngest was 10, our oldest 18 with everyone else in between. EVERYONE got up and surfed! It was so awesome!! Our only regret was not doing it the first day we got to Oahu! Christinaread more

Uncle Bryan’s surf lessons provided the best experience my family had while on vacation. We were all novices and this was our first time surfing. Uncle Bryan was a wealth of knowledge of the north shore and surfing in general. Our instructors were also top notch. They played to each individuals strengths and made sure they got the best waves possible. We all can’t wait to come back and surf again, all thanks to Uncle Bryan and our instructors.read more

Great staff and perfect location for learning to surf. We were worried about the wind and high surf warning but the location was protected and had slow rolling waves perfect for beginners and out of shape tourists. The owners son was way cool and helpful. He even took my 5 year old out and caught a wave with him. It has been the highlight of his trip, he keeps rubbing it in to his big brother. These guys are great. Be careful who you pick to teach you also. There were some instructors on the beach that were super high and it was not weed (tweeker) all of our instructors had it together and had us surfing first wave we caught.read more

Lisa was fantastic helping setup my lesson and giving us suggestions on what to do the rest of the day. She even sat with my wife and daughter on the beach during my entire lesson and talked with them. She has a warm and welcoming peraonality. Chris, the instructor was great, thanks for your time! Great experience, highly recommend!read more

A great time. Called Uncle Bryan at 7am and they scheduled my ten year old son a lesson. We showed up, they were organized and personable and I decided spur of the moment to get a lesson as well. Skylar was great, as was Bryan's son who was one of the other instructors. In fact, they all rocked. There were kids of all ages. Instructors managed to help get them all up multiple times.read more

Amazing location right at a great beginner surf break. Bryan is lovely, chill and very professional surf instructor with a host of great staff. Bring plenty of aloha spirit in return. I took my friends here to learn to surf on vacation. They were up and surfing after just an hour of water time. Would definitely bring them back again. Thanks Bryan and instructors!read more

Great morning on the water for my first surfing lesson with Instructor Schuyler at Pua’ena Point Beach Park. His instructions were easy and informative. I had no trouble getting up on my first wave. I highly recommend this friendly and professional outfit for those new to surfing or looking to improve.read more

We scheduled with a different surf company who cancelled us at the last minute. Called Bryan’s, Linda told us to go right over. We did. Met Bryan he put us in a lesson immediately. The guys were great at coaching. We were up and surfing in no time. MAHALO Bryan, Crew, Skylar and the others!read more

Top notch instruction - Mike Jackson is a local who not only gets you up on a board but goes further and teaches you safety, etiquette, and key focal points on what to look for when you are out on your own. Have not had such a natural high in quite some time; still smiling from ear to ear from today's experience. Thanks for the time Mike.read more

Uncle Bryan was AMAZING!!!!! He was the sweetest and brought all of us flowers to wear in our hair that he picked from his own home. He showed us the boards and they worked perfectly! It was an amazing experience and his hospitality made it 100000x more enjoyable! When we called him he met us at the beach quickly and got us our boards and on the water in no time. When we left he hugged us and it just felt like we were part of his own family. I have never met a business owner that has welcomed and helped his clients as much as Uncle Bryan. He is the absolute definition of the aloha spirit. I would recommend him without hesitation. If you are looking for an amazing experience, great pricing and the aloha experience he is your guy!!!!read more

Best part of our vacation... Many thanks to Bryan and his team for providing a great family lesson with kids aged 9, 7, and even 3! Will definitely go again next time we travel to Oahu.

Uncle Bryan and his team were fantastic. They helped my boys learn to get up on their boards and ride a handful of waves during our lesson. They paid special attention to my youngest to make sure he was safe at all times. My boys had a blast and will hopefully remember this experience for years. I highly recommend this team and this activity if you're visiting the North Shore!read more

Uncle Bryan and Skylar are absolutely a joy to be around. Skylar was by far the best instructor I've had surfing all over the world. He made sure my sister had a great first experience surfing. Thank you so much Skylar!

Uncle Brian's came highly recommended from a planning group. My husband and father in law took lessons with Chad, and had a great time even though the waves were not the best. Uncle Brian was so kind and welcoming when we arrived and helped set my mother in law, myself and my 3 daughters up to watch the guys surf. One of the guys even took my 2 oldest, 4 and5 out to catch a quick wave. Totally made their day. We could not have had a better experience and will definitely remember this experience.read more

Really great instructors and team here. I was in a group lesson where there were a few families and a handful of the kids didn't speak English, and they handled the group really well! Everyone had a lot of fun. During the group lesson I worked mostly with one of the instructors and he did a fantastic job. I learned a lot and was able to catch a wave on my own a few times during the lesson because of the good, personalized advice he gave. I'd highly recommend Uncle Bryan's to beginning surfers.read more

We booked a private session for 2 days, our coach Crew was awesome and managed that we got every wave. Very laidback vibe and professional. This year we come back and go back 100% to Uncle Brian and his crew.

Had the best time surfing with Uncle B..this was an experience we will never forget! My husband and I try to surf every time we travel.. best lesson by far (we have had about 10) Not to mention, we looked our best thus far.. we rode every wave we tried thanks to our awesome instruction!! This has never happened before and my hubby finally looked (more like) a pro! Our instructor even made the rest breaks fun, filled with local stories and fine tuning our technique. He genuinely wanted our experience to be the best possible. We will definitely seek out Uncle Bryan’s the next time we are in Hawaii. Great price for a great experience! I hate that I can’t remember our instructors name, I think it was Chad!! I hope so, shout out to chad!read more

I had a morning ride. The waves were great. My instructor was awesome. I am a first time surfer. Bryan provided off shore instructions. In the water I was up on my first attempt. It was great. After two hours I felt I was ready for 20 foot waves! Could not have been better, highly recommended.!read more

This is absolutely the best option for learning to surf. Our instructor was Mike J. and he was very experienced being a top surfer is whole life plus a great instructor. The price was about half of what another shop in town was charging as well. The location for the surfing is protected so very friendly for beginning to learn.read more
