Stand Up Paddle Yoga

Whether you're new to yoga or an experienced yogi, you will love our "SUP" yoga. Your session begins with a brief warm up as we paddle to our spot along to Anahulu stream. Here, where the lush riverbank of mangroves and native hau bushes shade the river, we begin our Yoga session.

Our boards are super stable. The location in the river is very calm and shallow, and there are no mosquitos. Our sessions are in the morning, allowing us to have the river mostly to ourselves, along with the green Hawaiian sea turtles, which are common to see in the morning time.

Your instructor is a certified yoga instructor who is passionate about what she does. She will customize your session for you, according to your experience and preference.

Come see why Rainbow Watersports has received TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence for the past 5 years!

Paddling boarding in Haleiwa ended up being one of the biggest highlights of our entire trip! Michael was AMAZING with our 8-yr old boy and made sure that everyone had so much fun! Seeing the sea turtles in the river and the bay was incredible! We would definitely recommend

This was my first time to Hawaii and going paddle boarding with sea turtles was on the top of my list. Rainbow Watersports delivered! Paddling down the river from the ocean was very relaxing while also a thrill spotting turtles! I’d say this is a must for any Hawaiian vacation.

This is a small business with people who are kind and go the extra mile. My car was broken down and Heidi ran (literally) across town to get a jump cord. It really says something how they took care of a stranger like myself at such a busy time as they were getting gear ready.
