We wanted to try paddleboarding on our recent trip Hawaii and researched the different options here on tripadvisor and the internet, and decided to go with Willi at Coconut Adventures. He was great to communicate with and open to our schedule. He even met us at our condo in Haliewa and escorted us to our starting spot.
WillI was very accommodating to our 'inexperience' and made us feel at ease and helped us get used to our boards, technique, and made us feel more and more confident. He said we were pretty fit and would probably master the river, then be able to go in the bay and try our new skills there. We had a great time travelling the river- we saw turtles and even got rained on for awhile, but it was great! Then we got to go out in the bay......a little more difficult! But it was fun to feel the waves and try to adjust, and try out our new found skills. My husband and I fell off a time or two, but no big deal, it just added to the whole experience. We even had time afterwards to go up the river a bit.
I wish we had more time in our trip to do another paddle.....maybe next time!
I would recommend Willi and Coconut Adventures to anyone wanting good instruction, and a good value!
