What We Do
I will meet up with the excited guest(s) on the sandy beach beside the canoes (Wailea Canoe Club sign) by Cove Beach Park on South Kihei Rd. or at Puamana Beach before if meeting on the west side.
I will provide a land lesson covering ocean safety, equipment familiarization, warm-up and conditioning. I will also assess guests' comfort, experience level and expectations prior to getting in the beautiful waters of Maui.
Once we embark on our water adventure, we will start practicing and applying different techniques on proper ways of handling the paddle and board in the water. The various workout segments I will be providing to isolate different muscle groups using the SUP and paddle will be contingent on the ocean conditions at that time.
I will show different techniques to use our SUP and paddle as conditioning exercises for core workout and also toning, strength building and balance application. While this is all going on, we will also be on the lookout for the curious Hawaiian turtles that like to bob their heads in the water to see what’s going on.
What We Provide
SUP board and paddle
Rashguard (upon request)
Booties upon request and supplied only if SUPing in southside to protect feet from reef/rocks
*All participants must be able to carry a heavy board. There is a short walking distance from land to ocean carrying the SUP. SUP boards are notorious for being big and heavier than regular surfboards.
What to Bring
Water (don't forget)
Cash to tip instructor
Optional: waterproof camera (must be hands free or somebody else taking pics)
Dry clothes to change into after the experience
Where We'll Meet
In southside (Kihei or Wailea) we will be at Cove Park. We will meet on sandy beach beside the Wailea Canoe Club. It is towards left of the High Tech Sports store if facing the ocean.
In westside (Lahaina or Kaanapali) we will be going to Puamana or a place close to it locally referred to as “guard rails”. We will meet at Puamana so I can give you exact direction to Guard Rails which is not visible on the map.
Please make sure to contact me a day prior before your booked time to confirm.
