Why lay down when you can stand up? Learn to stand up paddle, or SUP, in Kailua Bay on Oahu's windward side. This ancient water sport has made a major comeback with the help of new board technology, increasing the performance and ease of riding.
Stand up paddling combines the thrill of surfing with the techniques of paddling, a match made in heaven. Kailua offers a variety of conditions, from flat water cruising to moderate chop and rolling waves. Lessons generally stick to the calmest areas to practice basic strokes and techniques and depart downwind for easy cruising.
Whether you are a veteran big wave surfer or just experienced at surfing on-line, chances are, you are getting excited about stand up paddling. This sport has everyone getting more time on the water, which means a happier, healthier you. The versatility of a stand up board covers everything from paddling in flat water to dropping into double over head waves.
