Stand up paddling North Shore

Hi there,

I'll be staying for 3 days on the North Shore early June. I've been paddling a couple of months at the beach where I live in Western Australia. It's flat. I'd like to try a few small waves, (avoiding any surfers if possible.) Any advice regarding a lesson, board rental or good beginner spots would be appreciated. I have looked at a few sites, but I'm not a complete beginner and am very confident on the water. I have tried a few waves in Bali. Some good instruction wouldn't go a miss. Thanks for any help.

Generally speaking the surf is flat on the north shore in the summer. Try a place in Haleiwa to get boards maybe even Pupukea. They will tell you what you need to know.

Turtle Bay Resort offers lessons, and it's a beautiful place as well.


Just look at the glass-flat water in the pictures!
