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

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

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

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

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
