  • Stand Up Paddle Boarding traces its roots back to Polynesia and ancient surfing. Surf instructors in Hawaii started using SUPs in the 1960's as a way to better view the incoming waves and their surf students at Wai Ki Ki beach.

    In the early 2000's, big wave surfers like Laird Hamilton started cross training with SUP when the surf was down. Today SUP is a rapidly growing global sport and a great way for anyone to have fun on the water!

    This 1.5-hour lesson will introduce you to the sport and teach you the techniques and skills you'll need to be able to maintain balance and catch some waves!
