Our small group SUP courses are designed for all skill and ability levels and will give advanced paddlers an opportunity to hone their techniques. Want to try your hand at the hottest new sport on the water? Sign up for one of our stand up paddleboard (SUP) classes and see what the excitement is about. Starting out in Waikiki in the 1930’s for surfers to more quickly paddle into waves, using a long canoe paddle became popular as an alternative to hand paddling and quickly standing. The sport largely dropped off the radar for many years, and was recently re-popularized when famous big wave surfer Laird Hamilton and some of his Hawaiian surf buddies started doing it using specialized boards and paddles.
In addition to its colorful history, it‘s a great way to cruise the water seeing everything around and below you, and is one of the best whole body workouts you will ever do.
