Learning to Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP) is fun and easy with Maui’s great conditions and friendly patient instructors. Experience the joy of cruising around the ocean on your board, looking for turtles, and watching the reef. We recommend group and semi-private lessons for everyone, adults, couples, and families with teenage kids. SUP Stand-up-paddle boarding is a great way to have fun in the ocean.
Our beginner lessons: Our beginner Standup Paddleboarding (SUP) lessons are a great way to try get onto the water and try the sport. We make sure that you have the right equipment, location, technique so that you can learn to ride the board and have fun.
Our Location: Our Location offers a variety of conditions from flat water for beginners, to waves for the advanced. This is one of the most popular spots in all of Maui. There is a large reef area that has several shallow protected sections, and some small breaks that offer variety. Most people will be happy to stay inside the reef for their first session or two.

Water temperature: the water is warm, average 78 degrees, so no wetsuit is required, most people just wear surf shorts and a surf shirt (aka Rashie). Some people may want to wear a thin neoprene shorty for extended all day SUP sessions.
What to Wear: We supply your Rashguard and Booties. Small kids may want to get a wetsuit, especially for the multi-day camps. Most people will tend to stay dry (most of the time), so they can tend to get hotter doing SUP than when surfing. Unless it is cloudy or windy. You can wear your Sunglasses with a strap to tie them on, or Seaspecks, and a hat, and sunscreen. Life-jackets are available.
Water Depth: Where we surf is relatively shallow; waist to chest deep close to shore, but it will be overhead depth quite quickly. There are shallow areas of reef all around so you want to look before you jump off the board. We do not recommend walking on the sea floor because we want to protect your feet and the reef. So we give you surf booties to wear.
Times: Our lessons are scheduled in the mornings when the wind is light. 8 am is our best/most popular start time, but we sometimes offer a 10 am and 12 noon weather permitting.
Duration: Our beginner group SUP lesson is 1.5 hours long. This includes a short land-lesson and lots of water time. This is the ideal duration for most people. On the water, you will be alternating between actively paddling (sitting, kneeling, standing) and taking short breaks sitting on the board.
Groups: Our groups are small so that you get a lot of attention from your instructors. This is better and safer than “some other places” that will jam you into a big group. Our style is to keep classes small and personal. We want you to fall in love with SUPing like we did. So we always provide you the best class sizes for your maximum enjoyment.
Satisfaction Guaranteed: Learn to SUP in your first Session or your second lesson is 100% FREE. Your satisfaction is our Primary concern (after safety..) So please tell us if you have any issues and we will do our best to correct the problem. Otherwise we give you a second lesson free or your money back!!
