Check out one of the fastest-growing watersports—Stand Up Paddling, or SUP! Take advantage of this amazing opportunity to have your own personal gondola ride of sorts in the crystal clear waters of Oahu’s Maunalua Bay.

Next to being in it, the best way to enjoy the crystal clear waters of Oahu is by standing on it. Short of a miracle, the only way that will happen is if you decide to try out Stand Up Paddling, or SUP, as it’s affectionately known. You can look down and sea turtles, bright coral, and exotic tropical fish all swimming placidly beneath you! Think of paddle boarding as your own personal gondola ride.

Island Watersports Hawaii offers you the chance to try this quickly-growing trend and have the experience of a lifetime on your Hawaii vacation. Your journey will begin aboard a 40-foot custom boat that will take you to the SUP location, and from there, Maunalua Bay is your oyster! Check out the quintessentially-Hawaiian scenery, with the iconic Diamond Head volcanic mountain looming in the distance.

Stand Up Paddleboarding is a surface water sport, not entirely unlike surfing. The sport took off in the early 1900s in Hawaii, and while the early paddleboards were made of wood, today’s boards are lightweight, made of either fiberglass or carbon fiber. They average about ten feet in length, and paddleboarders are given a lightweight paddle with which to propel themselves into the surf, and to use as a rowing device when standing.

Are you considering trying SUP, but aren’t sure if it’s right for you? While the Island Watersports staff will be available to give you some first-time guidance on the technical aspects of the sport, here are a few things to know about paddleboarding:

  • To paddleboard, you should be fairly physically fit, but don’t necessarily need any experience with surfing. Be sure to stretch before and after your paddleboarding session, even if you don’t feel sore.
  • Be sure to wear the proper clothing during your SUP session. The waters around Oahu will likely be fairly warm, so you probably won’t need a wetsuit. However, ladies might want to consider donning a pair of shorts and/or t-shirt over the swimsuit, in case stronger surf tries to get the better of you.
  • DO wear sunscreen! You’ll be standing on water, and the sun’s reflection will be at its strongest just above the water, putting you in the prime spot for sunburn.
