Stand-up Paddleboarding Lessons on O‘ahu

Stand up paddleboarding, or SUP, has exploded in popularity this past decade–and we know why. Paddleboarding is a great way to explore the ocean, and it’s a fun group activity for families and people of all fitness levels. Improve your balance and strengthen your core as you glide through the water at your own speed. Or maybe even catch a wave or two as you take your skills to the next level.

SUP Levels

Here is an overview of paddleboarding skill levels:

Level 1 – Beginner: Newbies start out by learning the basics on shore: body form, positioning, standing up, and paddling techniques. Once on the water, you’ll work on balance – starting on your knees and then standing up – and turns as you glide through the gentle waters.

Level 2 – Intermediate: Once you can comfortably paddle on your own, we’ll help you pick up speed and catch your first wave. Intermediate riders are ready for more challenging conditions – meaning more excitement out on the water.
