My sister and I took SUP lessons from Moria in Waikiki and she was fantastic. Moria was so nice and such a great teacher. She taught us like we were her personal friends, and we all had an incredible time. Moria first spent about 30 minutes talking about technique and safety and then we spent two hours on the water....

I booked a downwind run with Robert. He was very responsive in email and easy to communicate with. We did the Kahala run. I am an intermediate paddler with a few downwind runs under my belt, but felt I learned quite a bit from Robert on basics such as where to stand, when to paddle (and not to paddle), how... More

My college-age daughter and I had a lesson with Robert. I frankly was somewhat skeptical, because I have paddled surfski kayaks extensively. It turned out to well worthwhile. Because we had paddling experience, we began with the three of us paddling in Maunalua Bay, with Robert observing our technique. We returned to shore, and Robert went over the fundamentals, and...

I was desperate to catch a few waves during my final days on Waikiki. I tried in vain at a number of SUP supplier outfits... didn't return calls, crap boards... restrictions on where to surf. I finally stumbled upon Blue Planet surf and gave them a call, late Sunday afternoon. Mike from BPS was fantastic, discussed board selection and he... More

Coming to from Northern California to Hawaii for five days I wanted to plan my fun in advance. Called and emailed the shop to arrange for lessons and equipment rental.

We decided to give paddleboarding a try while on vacation in Ohau.
