If you want to try stand up paddle, this is the company to call. I'm a "local" and have been a devoted SUP fan since first learning from father & son team, Reid and Matt Inouye of PCF over 6 years ago. Matt is now the owner and lead instructor who conducts introductory beginner class and also holds regular workout classes on SUP, 7 times a week. PCF is the only licensed SUP operator at Ala Moana Beach park. While it seems easy to get started on SUP, proper technique, safety, knowledge of paddle and board types are key. With Matt and his team, you get expert instruction, lots of encouragement. The fitness class is the best and varies every time. You never get bored. There's "boot" camp, sprint/endurance, ocean/surf paddling and more. All levels are accommodated. If you plan to SUP on vacation or want to try a new fitness program, PCF is it.

My husband and I wanted to try stand-up paddle (SUP) on our vacation on Oahu. A friend recommended we go down to Ala Moana beach and check out someone there who rented paddleboards. The lifeguard knew Matt Inouye with Paddle Core Fitness Hawaii was in the beach parking lot and was able to connect us with him. What a great guy! We had decided to try SUP on our own after watching some teaching videos and Matt was willing to rent us some boards for an hour following a class of his. He gave us some tips and encouragement and we headed out onto the water on our own and had a blast. If we'd had more time and little more in the budget, we definitely would have taken a class with Matt! He was knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, and encouraging and we can't recommend him highly enough.

Matt had my wife and I paddle boarding in 15 minutes and we are 60 years old. Matt taught us the basics, gave us confidence almost immediately. Matt took us through a series of short actions that built to a mile paddle board trek with Matt at our side all the way. Matt is the best at what he does regardless of your age. This is the only place to go, if you want to learn quickly and properly. Thanks Matt.
