“This was pretty much awesome. If you’re worried about whether you’ll be able to do it, don’t worry. My sister can’t even walk in a straight line for more than five steps and she popped right up. It’s a great way to enjoy nice weather with family and friends. DO IT!”


“I had so much fun! The service was excellent & made me feel comfortable trying something new. It was well worth the money & I would recommend it to anybody!!”

“We had a great experience. The North Shore, the ocean, and the great instruction we had all led to a fantastic morning. If you are in Hawaii, and you do not try to stand up paddle board, you are missing a great time. We can’t wait to do it again.”
