Why a Private Lesson?

private sup lessonWe know that your time in Maui is precious, and like you, we like to stay away from the crowds and take the road off the beaten path. It’s our belief that you should have the best experience possible while visiting Maui, and that can be hard to do when you are on a group tour with other people that have different needs than you! Let’s face it, you signed up for paddle board instruction — not a “follow the leader” exercise with a group of people paddling in the shallow waters. Our private lessons allow us to cater to your needs and your expectations so you — and only you — get our full attention.

Our goal is to give you a memorable and authentic Stand Up Paddle Board experience… that’s our promise to you. And for an added bonus, our guides will also document your great accomplishment for you with their GoPro!

Choose The Location For Your Maui Stand Up Paddle Lesson

On the Northwest side of Maui, you will find the gorgeous little area known as Kapalua Bay. While somewhat protected from the wind, this area of the island can be a challenging location for first-time paddle boarders. The winter months in Kapalua are often grey and sometimes rainy, and there is the possibility of large surf. During the summer months there is less chance of rain, but usually strong winds. We are usually successful at this location with most of our guests, but we like to be up front about the weather conditions that sometimes create challenges for guests!

Our knowledgeable staff can steer you in the right direction for your lesson based on weather and your experience level. For guests staying on West Maui in Lahaina, Kahana, Kapalua, Napili or Kaanapali, we are happy to offer several West Maui options for your SUP lesson.

“This is the BEST guided adventure on Maui. We first were taught how to Stand Up Paddle on the beach, then we paddled out and explored. Our guide brought snorkel gear for us to use and we dove in and checked out the reef, so awesome!”
