Had the pleasure of learning to surf this weekend with Heath as my instructor. He had me up and riding waves within an hour, which included a 30 minute shore lesson. Had a great time and learned a lot about how to read the ocean as well. Highly recommend this surf school. It's also right next to a couple places... More

I visited Oahu in March 2017 and was looking for some surf lessons on the North Shore. Uncle B was recommended to me by some friends and I am so glad that I found them, they really made my trip amazing! I did 4 private surf lessons with Schuyler Allen, he was an amazing coach/guide and an absolute beast in... More

I signed up for a group lesson and it ended up only being me and one other guy, so I got an almost-private surfing lesson. I had taken one surfing lesson before, but this was the first time it really "clicked." Chris is an excellent teacher and had me standing up on my board almost immediately. I had so much... More

Uncle Bryan’s Sunset Surrat Surf was an enjoyable experience for my family. They accommodated us with a day’s notice and, after a quick on-shore lesson, took the kids out on Pua'ena Point (outside Haleiwa). The kids had a blast, and their instrcutors, Skylar and Marshal, deserve mucho thanks for being so encouraging and helpful. There was no question that the... More

Both my wife and I had our first surfing experience with them on Saturday. I went back for a second round Sunday. Wonderful family business with caring instructors. Easy shower after your time in the ocean.

My husband and I booked a semi-private lesson and had Skylar as our teacher--it was a fantastic experience. Neither one of us had ever surfed before so I was doubtful we'd have much success, but with Skylar's help we were able to get up almost immediately. He was the right blend of laid back and encouraging, and even towed us... More

Would highly recommend! My 12 year old, 14 year old and 19 year old took a lesson together with Uncle Bryan's son Cru. Cru got all 3 of them surfing in less then an hour! Each one of them said it was "the best thing EVER." We walked up and booked a lesson on the spot. Uncle Bryan extended his... More

We booked a private lesson for our 4 kids ages 4-9. Our 6 year old is a brain cancer survivor and has some physical handicaps as a result. Uncle Bryan hooked up our 6 year old with Cru and our 4 year old, who overestimates her swimming abilities, with Skylar. These guys are out of this world! They coached our... More

My husband and 13 year old daughter took a lesson just before Christmas. My mom and I observed. I was very impressed with the instructor and with Uncle Bryan. He loaned us beach chairs to sit and watch them surf. And was nothing but hugs and smiles. This is where you want to go to learn! I felt my child... More
