Stand up paddle board

We are staying at Aston Hotel. We would like to bring our stand up paddle boards with us. Is there a good place to do this? I see there is a lot of wind. We do not want to surf. Thank you!

Have you checked with the airline to see if they will do a paddle board and if so the cost?

The wind is usually calm in the mornings until around noon. You wuold need to be very mindful of wind, currents and swells.. Have you done SUP in the ocean? .

There are many places to rent boards, even companies that will deliver and pick at your location of choice.

Which Aston property??

Yes, as Barefootn, asks, which Aston?

Just so you know, on Maui, Aston is not a hotel. It is a company that manages some of the units in several different condo resorts in both West and South Maui. Each resort has its own name, and many of the units will be private rentals, not through Aston.

I'm happy that Barefootn is cautioning you, if your experience is on a lake and not in the ocean. Please stay safe! We see lots of paddle boarders that could use a few lessons. And I got a big knock in the head while snorkeling to prove it! Lol!

Hope you have a lovely time on Maui!

What BB said was my first thought as well.

I think all the domestic airlines are charging a big chunk of change for these now.

In fact, there was a post by someone from Europe opining that even his airline has begun charging a hefty fee.
