Aloha! Sammy’s Aloha Watersports is a mobile water sports instruction school based on O’ahu, Hawai’i. We are a locally owned and operated family business that was built on a foundation of experience and passion. Owner and founder Samuel Perez Hults is a competitive water sports athlete with decades of experience teaching others to share his love for the ocean. Originally from the Dominican Republic, Sammy began his career as a champion freestyle and wave windsurfer, winning numerous competitions in his home country and earning him the chance to compete internationally. Back home, Sammy helped work with youth in his neighborhood to develop an interest in watersports and teach them a healthy and positive way of life.
Sammy later expanded his repertoire to master the sports of kiteboarding, surfing, and SUP, and in 2009, relocated to O’ahu to pursue those interests and make Hawai‘i his home. Sammy and his team are committed to spreading his love of watersports to people of all ages and levels – and they’ll make you a believer! They work with each client personally to ensure students get top-notch instruction and have a fun learning experience.
Sammy is a world-class athlete and instructor with the resume to boot: In 2019, Sammy was selected by the Dominican Republic as the country’s top windsurfer to represent his nation in the 2020 Olympic qualifiers, and is currently training for the 2024 Paris games.
