I ended up with a private lesson with Nobi, as no one else had signed up. He was thorough in explaining aspects of paddle boarding, with the emphasis of staying safe in the water. Nobi is very knowledgeable about all aspects of paddle boarding; he was very friendly throughout the lesson. I would definitely ask to have him as your... More

Can't say enough positive things about our guide Nobi. Very knowledgeable, passionate, and full of Aloha. The instruction is clear, concise, and thorough. The information was so much I couldn't retain it all, but maybe that just means I'll just have to go again; don't mind so much as he's also easy on the eyes. :) Highly recommend this to... More

Aloha and thank you for your review! Our Double-Hull Canoe tour is a one of a kind tour - providing paddling, history, geography, topography, volcanology and Hawaiian language lessons. Nobie is one-of-a-kind and we are very lucky that he loves what he does and loves to share his culture with visitors and kama'aina alike. We hope you come back and... More

Had a fantastic SUP lesson. Our instructor was excellent and took the time to carefully explain and demonstrate the necessary techniques. He was very patient with us and we all had a lot of fun. There was no pressure to do more than what we were comfortable with, which helped because were were inexperienced. Would highly recommend to others.

My 19 yr old son and I booked Stand Up Paddle (SUP) lessons. I was a little leery after watching our friends try it on our last vacation because they were in the water more than they were on the board.
