 What our clients say

“After spending years of competitive windsurfing, ski racing, playing polo and countless injuries especially my neck, I suffered from vertigo and neck pain for years. Pete and Tahiti and I have been surfing as our family sport (I’m not the best at it but probably having the most fun) which I felt my neck was getting stronger! I felt I could finally give kiting a try. So for all those out there that wondered why doesn’t Lisa kite, now you know. They say don’t have your spouse (Pete Cabrinha) teach you a new sport, so I had the best instructor with Brett! Had so many laughs as you can hear on the video! Thank you so much Brett!” - Lisa Cabrinha (aka Mrs. Pete Cabrinha)

“I am a intermediate kiter and have gone through many kiting instructors all over the world- South Africa, Mozambique, Zanzibar, and Mauritius. And I can without a doubt say that Brett has been the best of all! He is one of the kindest, funniest, personable people you’ll meet, and he really knows how to make kite surfing fun. I learnt so much and felt I really left his lessons with new skills. HIGHLY recommend Brett if you’re wanting to enjoy learning how to kite, or progress in your skills - he’s awesome!” - Alex Faure, Kite Student

“I was referred to Brett through an acquaintance and was told that he is "THE" go to instructor on Maui for both surfing and kiteboarding. Having had a previous scary experience with the ocean, I was very anxious and had a lot of trepidation during my first lesson. I explained this to Brett and he was extremely patient and supportive and helped me overcome my fears. Brett is one of the most personable people I have met and he truly has a passion for these sports and for helping his students learn and succeed. He really cares. For surfing and kiteboarding lessons, Brett is the BEST on Maui.” - Kelly, Surf Student
