Brian is an excellent coach and great with kids. He chose a location, Ten Thousand Peaks, that was not crowded, beautiful and great for beginner surfers. We will work with Brian on our next trip to Maui.

My wife and I and our two children took beginner surf lessons from Brian and had a fantastic time. All four of us got up multiple times. Brian was super with the kids and he made all of us feel very comfortable on a board. We would definitely use Brian on our next trip to Maui.

My daughter and I took surf lessons from Brian and what a great time we had!! I couldn't believe that I actually was up on the board catching a wave, especially at my age. I'm an awkward person and Brian made us feel right at home and very comfortable. He took great pictures and gave us excellent tips for continued... More

Brian was such a pro-he helped us in every aspect of learning how to surf. He made us feel comfortable immediately on the board, provided us with rash guards and footwear, which was much appreciated, and we had an amazing time with him. Would highly recommend it for a fun activity if you're interested in surfing. We would certainly call... More

It was my dream to surf. Brian made my dream come true. He taught me and my daughter from the very first step very attentively. We could stand up on the board from the first day and we made more progress every day. He made me feel confident not only for surfing but also for achieving something I missed somewhere... More

Brian is knowledgeable and responsible. Within the first couple attempts we were all up on our board and having a blast. He chose a great, secluded spot for us. I definitely would not have wanted to go where most of the other surfing instructors hang out, where it's too crowded. Brian captured some great actions shots of us while surfing... More

Brian was very easy to organize with. He gets right down to business and within 20 minutes - up and riding the first wave! Great teacher and good sense of humour. We would highly recomend Brian to anyone looking to learn to surf on Maui. Added bonus - he takes really great pictures!

I had surfed only a few times as a kid but was basically starting from the bottom. In 3 days/3 hours I was catching waves and riding them clean all the way in. Brian is a great instructor. He's patient, instructive and has a great teaching style. He is also very organized, on time, does a great job communicating via... More

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
