I took a solo trip to Maui to learn how to surf. My entire traveling experience was taken to a whole other level because I had so much fun surfing with Brian! Brian helped me book my condo before I arrived. During my stay, I didn't plan on getting a rental car, so Brian was nice enough to pick me... More

I picked Soul Surfing by reading all the great reviews on Trip Advisor, and now I understand why Brian gets all the great ratings that he does. We visited Maui last week, and had an amazing time during Brian's surf lesson. Here's what made our experience so great: 1.) He was communicative before our lesson. He monitored the winds on...

I booked with Soul Surfing Maui for a week after reviewing several companies on tripadvisor. I decided to go with Brian De Cook, based on many 5 star reviews and positive comments on his coaching. Brian assisted me with booking my condo and helped with my car rental selection. I was pleasantly surprised by Brian's coaching style. He very quickly... More

While in Maui my wife and I took some lessons with Brian, and we are glad we did. It's lessons catered to your group and your needs so individual attention is there. Whatever your skill level, Brian will get the best out of you. Location is amazing too and away from the crowds so you can catch waves without being... More

It's pretty clear from previous reviews that Soul Surfing is the real deal, but I'll throw a little gasoline on the fire anyway! My brother and I (both intermediate level surfers though a bit rusty) booked a tour with Brian. He pretty much instantly responded with questions about ability, what sort of boards we were interested in, etc. Contrast that... More

My husband and I booked our session with Brian after reading reviews and speaking to him on the phone. We are so glad we decided to go with him. The location is hands down the best place to surf. Gorgeous mountains in the background, clear water and an empty beach. Lots of room to learn, no crowds and a great... More

I had an outstanding day with Brian! I have been surfing for years but wanted to hire Brian for his local knowledge and experience in the water. Caught some really fun waves and enjoyed every second of it. I would highly reccomend Brian to anyone.

Brian from Soul Surfing Maui was incredible! I booked a lesson with him 2 days in advance and he was very accommodating. He was super responsive on email and we set up a time at an awesome, uncrowded beach. He gave me a few minutes to get my family situated on the beach (even offered his personal beach chairs to...

I spent 3 days on the water with Brian and they were absolutely unforgettable. I wish I could spend an entire month with him! If you are hoping to truly connect with surfing, I believe Brian is the person to help you get there. Profoundly grateful for his instruction, patience, laughter, and skillful approach.

I won't be adding anything new here to say that our surf lessons with Brian were nothing less than great. He is patient, easy-going, personable and a great instructor. It was amazing to go from not being able to surf at all and 90 minutes later being able to stand up and get the first taste of beginning surfing! He... More
