Get into the Ocean: Learn to stand-up paddle

You don’t have to be the “most fit” nor do you need to have a whole lot of ocean-sport experience. It does help that you can swim though!


He’e hoe nalu in Hawaiian, standup paddle boarding started here in Hawaii as a very ancient way of surfing! The ancient boards didn’t have fins on the bottom, so surfers would use their foot, or a long-handled paddle, to steer. Today, it is a great way to enjoy the ocean when calm, or to make wave surfing more interesting. In any case, its a fun thing to do here at our gorgeous beach in Waimanalo!
