I booked a paddle boarding lesson with Maui Stand Up for my father and I. He had never done this before and was excited to try. It took a little time to find our guide, I suggest you get there 10 minutes before your lesson just so you could walk around and find your guide. Zeke was our guide for the day and he was great! He was really warm and friendly, incredibly helpful and told us all about his experience as an instructor and what to expect. He took us out on the water and we began our lesson. My father had a great time trying to master the art of getting up on the board. Zeke was patient and also pointed out the wildlife around us. It was a great, fun and relaxing experience. By the end of the lesson my dad could paddle!!! SUCCESS!!!! We both had a great time and thanks Zeke for being so awesome!
It was our first time to try SUP, but Lowe did a great job teaching us basic principals. Everything was very professional and I highly recommend Maui Stand Up Paddle Boarding.
Had a great time learning paddle boarding. Curtis was an awesome teacher and very knowledgeable. In addition to showing us how to paddle board, he taught us some Hawaiian words and provided us with some eatery recommendations. The photos he took turned out great as well.
My adventure in Maui started with Maui Stand Up Paddle Boarding at 8 am at Makena Beach State Park. For beginners, early morning is the best time of the day since the water is calm. I was so excited to experience SUP because I wanted to try how it felt to walk on water and observe the marine life from a different perspective. My guide Curtis, a certified instructor from California, lives in Maui for years and is very knowledgeable. After reviewing basic water safety instructions, he taught me how to get up, stand up, and paddle step by step during a 2 hours private lesson. It was super fun to ride waves across the pristine clear water and we were lucky to cross paths of big giant turtles. SUP in Maui is definitely a must do and I highly recommend to opt for a private lesson if you are traveling solo. More pictures on my IG @kelledstyle :)
This is a must do while in Maui. The private nature of the tour allowed us to go at our own pace while still having the expertise and experience of a guide. Mikaela was so friendly and informative throughout the tour. She taught us all about Hawaiian culture, the reefs, and gave us plenty of recommendations of other must dos while on the island. While out on the water paddling and snorkeling, we saw so many different types of fish, a bunch of turtles, and a whole pod of dolphins. I would definitely do this tour again and recommend to anyone who wants to paddle board in Maui, both experienced sup users and first timers.
