Your Kona SUP lesson begins near Kahalu’u Bay when you meet your instructor at a surf shop, where you’ll briefly receive an introduction on the basics of stand up paddling.

You’ll next head across to Kahalu’u Bay, and listen as your instructor explains how to properly paddle and maneuver your board. With its gentle waves and protected cove, this beach is one of the best spots on the Big Island for beginner surfers and paddlers, and by the end of the 2-hour paddleboarding lesson, you’ll be hooked on the feeling of casually floating and a paddling above the reef.

The first scheduled lesson was cancelled because of high surf. They gave us the option to cancel or reschedule. I ended up cancelling and my sister re-scheduled. We were staying at one of the resorts and didn't realize the location was 30 minutes away from the resort, which was partly our own fault. My sister ended up cancelling as our lesson was at 7:00 am and we thought it was at the resort, not 30 minutes away.

This was a great experience from beginning to end. The staff is the best. We had Dominque as out guide. She was kind, patient and so helpful. The water is magnificent and the paddle boarding is even better! If you have the opportunity….take it! You won’t be disappointed.

So if you have a natural instinct of balance and strength, SUPs are fun. Corey was a good instructor and I managed to get up, standing and paddling in no time. Will recommended to anyone who's looking for a new water activity to try out.

This was a great experience. Everyone at the office was really helpful. Javier was a great teacher. He coached us every time we fell on how to get back up and adjust our posture to help us stay up longer. We had a toddler with us and we worried that someone would have to stay behind with him, but Javier kept him happy and on the board with him the whole time. Definitely made us fall in love with paddleboarding.
