After great instruction from Skyler and Michael, my 16 year old AND I were surfing by our second wave and the 10 year old was surfing by the the first wave. Great experience and family memory.

We booked on a whim because a friend told us to. The online booking was easy. The instructors were great. Kevin was friendly and encouraging and worked his butt off. My daughter's instructor surfed with her. Somehow we managed to get private lessons. Uncle Bryan was there to greet us and welcome us back. Heath takes great pictures for a... More

We took lessons last year with a nice woman but this was so much better. Bryan was there to greet us and so did all the instructors. Mike was our instructor, but they all are or were competitive surfers. My 14 yr old daughter and I took semi-private lessons and we were surfing from the beginning, largely because of his... More

Our family scheduled surf lessons with Bryan and his team and enjoyed every minute of it! We had one instructor per two people and really got our money's worth. Bryan was very friendly and his guys helped my young kids to really feel safe and lean quickly.

Uncle Bryan super nice and friendly. His son took myself and my husband out to teach us to surf. Very easygoing, friendly. Husband got up first time, I got up 2nd time. We paid for less than xpensive rate, but got individual training. Lots of fun (paddling out can be exhausting, but instructor will pull you and board behind him... More

We booked a group lesson during our recent Hawaiian Vacation in early September. Based on the reviews on tripadvisor, we were hopeful. Our instructor was extremely condescending, impatient and had a bad attitude. I can't express enough that you should learn and go elsewhere. We also paid for pictures and was told that we would receive a link - The... More

I am sorry to hear about your experience with our instructor. I would appreciate if you would send us an email so we can handle this appropriately. We guarantee our lessons so if anyone wants to give surfing a try and is uncomfortable for any reason they are not obligated to pay. Our photographer sends a link the day of... More

Had a great time with Connor, our instructor. Me and wife's first time surfing, and we were actually surprised at how much we could do in our first lesson. Area was very friendly in terms of waves. Look forward to trying it again!

Learn to surf on long gentle waves with good instructors, or as I've done, see if you can raise your board skills. Since my home breaks (around Manly in Sydney) are not as long and gentle, this is a new experience for me. I'm not sure yet how well it will translate into our shorter waves, but it's a huge...

Deciding last minute we wanted to surf, we gave Uncle Bryan a call per a friend's recommendation, and his friendliness was evident. He set us up with Mike for an afternoon lesson and we felt immediately taken care of. Mike's knowledge, skill, and willingness to help were top-notch. Also, he was able to give solid recommendations for other spots to... More
