Meet at Waikiki Beach near the Outrigger Reef and Halekulani hotels for your 2-hour private standup-paddleboard lesson. Private lessons are offered seven days a week, so pick a day and time that works well with your schedule.
Once you get acquainted with your instructor and he or she sets you up with your equipment, listen to a safety briefing. Your private lesson is specifically tailored to your skill and comfort levels. Your guide never pushes you too far, and keeps a close eye on you every step of the way. He or she is also trained in first aid and lifeguard CPR.
Once you get to the water, if you’re a beginner, learn the basics of how to standup paddleboard. If you’re a more advanced boarder, have a chance to perfect your skills with your instructor. As your lesson goes on, take in the beautiful ocean views of Hawaii. Your lesson ends back on the beach where you turn in your equipment.
