Standup Paddle (SUP) Lessons: Learn to Standup Paddle and experience for yourself the fun and exhilaration of this truly exceptional activity. It's simple, easy to learn, and fun to do with friends or alone. SUP is an individual water sport that uses a style of paddling similar to that of the outrigger canoe, but you stand upright on a specially designed SUP board and utilize an elongated paddle. Standup paddling has been practiced for centuries in a variety of forms and cultures and in its recent modernized version has become one of the most popular and fastest growing water sports in the WORLD. It is extremely unique in that you can self-propel while standing across any body of water that skill level warrants without the necessity of wind, waves, or engine power. Participation is hugely rewarding as you captain your own board and navigate to your own chosen course or destination while reaping the benefits of a great low-impact full body workout. Maui boasts a world-class variety of water terrain for every level of participant. Due to ever changing ocean conditions hiring an instructor or guide is highly recommended.
