We got up the first time! That's probably the best part. And then the scenery at the learner's beach is amazing too. Brian is a great teacher who's patient and generous with his advice for the island overall too, not just surfing-wise. He showed great...More

My girlfriend and I were both super excited about learning to surf. However she doesn't know how to swim at all, and this seemed like a non-starter if we wanted to learn how to surf. I emailed Brian back and forth and he assured me...More

Surfing with Brian was amazing. I've been to surfcamps in Bali and France and you really can't compare those to those surf lessons. He helps you from the beginning and makes you feel safe and at the same time never puts you under pressure, of...More
