Maui Stand-Up Paddle Board Lessons

Kalama Beach Park in Kihei

Paddle Board Lessons are fun and easy and requires no waves. Kalama Park in the sunny town of Kihei is an ideal spot for paddle boarding lessons.


Maui Stand Up Paddle Board Lessons, “SUP”

Our SUP lessons are at Kalama Park in Kihei (South Maui). Enjoy the pure simplicity of Stand Up Paddling. Cruise the Maui coastline while you balance on an extra large surfboard for maximum stability. The views both above and below the water will amaze you, with Haleakala and the west Maui mountains in the distance on one side and Molokini Crater and Kaho’olawe on the other. Below the ocean surface, you will enjoy views of coral reef life. During whale season, you may even be treated to a Humpback sighting.

Your instructor is excited to get you out on the water enjoying the experience, however, we will take a few minutes to go over some instruction and tips on the beach beforehand. With help, you find yourself on the “sweet spot” of your board and away you go. Paddling effortlessly with a smile and your inner ninja so proud of you!

Professional, safe, and fun surf Instructors

Our instructors are the kinda guys and gals you want to have as a stand-up paddling buddy. No, they are not professional surfers riding the enormous waves of Jaws but they are more suited to helping you surf! Friendly, happy and encouraging, they will get you up and riding some waves! Nothing better than having fun on the water with some positive mojo!

Kalama Beach Park – Kihei

Kalama Beach Park on Maui’s South Shore is a large park blanketed in warm sunshine most days of the year. There is an oceanside grassy area with shade trees for family members to watch, and the area is ideal for learning to surf and paddleboard.

Maui is family friendly and this activity is no exception – we invite families with kids* as young as 10 to join a SUP tour.

We recommend the 8am lesson time with kids so we can benefit from the calmest conditions of the day.

*All participants should be comfortable in the water and able to swim

*This is one of the only county permitted locations for Maui paddle board lessons! There are only a few companies permitted by the county of Maui to teach surfing and standup lessons, we are one of them. Others will have you in spots that are a little too risky (crossing a highway to rappel down a cliff, or ask you to say it’s not a surf lesson if anyone asks, etc.). You decide. We take pride in safe, family fun lessons.
