Our group included my wife and me, our 10 yr old son, 13 yr old daughter, and my 69 yr old father. The enthusiastic instructors (Joel, Jake, and Kilani) were committed to providing an enjoyable experience for all of us. The land and water instruction were easy to understand, and the instructors provided coaching and encouragement throughout all of our rides. They were great with our kids, too!
All 5 of us had a fantastic time! We always felt very safe, and with the 3 instructors for our group of 5, there was plenty of individual attention. The location was perfect - nice long rides on waves that weren't too big. The area was not very crowded, either.
We took another set of surfing lessons from a group in Waikiki, and felt that Uncle Bryan's was a far superior experience. We should've gone back to the North Shore for that second set of lessons!
We would recommend Uncle Bryan's to anyone visiting the island - we feel it's a "must-do" activity if you're on Oahu!
A few notes: We bought the picture package and were very satisfied. Excellent high quality shots of everyone. Payment for the lessons and photos is cash only at the beach, unless you pay online ahead of time.
