Best surfing experience

I had a fantastic time learning to surf with Brian. Not only is he an excellent and skilled teacher but he makes the whole experience a lot of fun. He is the best coach ever.

We showed up as first time surfers and departed as lifetime surfers. Brian shared his passion for the sport and lifestyle with us "late forties folks". His teaching ability is fantastic and he captures the full scenic experience on film. After a few days of lessons we were on our own, hooked for dawn and dusk patrol and maybe lunch... More

This has been a really awesome experience at the end of our holiday! Brian was very flexible with our surfing lessons so we were able to pick the best waves of the week. We (my boyfriend and I) enjoyed every minute surfing with him. He is a very good teacher and knows how to make you feel comfortable in the... More

My husband, mom, and I took a lesson with Brian towards the end of our stay in Maui. I wish we had scheduled it sooner so we could have fit in more surfing in days to come. It was the first time surfing for all of us and we LOVED it! Brian was a fun and effective teacher and the... More

We had a great experience with Brain. From the beginning he was highly responsive, and made sure everything was super clear, from the rates, to the location, to what to expect when we got there. When we did arrive, everything was exactly as he told us which was great. We had a fairly large group 6 of us, which included... More

Brian was a great teacher. All three of my teenage children had an awesome experience. Provided use of boards, shirts and shoes. Would highly recommend!

My family with four children had a 90 minutes instruction from Brian. He not only to special care and treat of the children (age 9,12,14,14) no doubt he's a very skilled surfer but he's also a very good teacher on all levels. The instruction was so enjoyable for the whole family, that we book a lesson the day after, as... More

As mentioned by many others here, the overwhelming amount of great reviews that led me to choosing Soul Surfing Maui were right on the money! Brian invests himself into your surfing experience and has a love of surfing. He's got "the gift" of teaching and an abundance of knowledge, but beyond that he is a great person just to be... More
