I knew I wanted to train with Robert after watching all his great SUP videos on YouTube. First, my brother and I rented a down winder board from the shop. The entire staff... More

My wife and I live on Oahu, but have done very little stand-up paddleboarding. Our niece is visiting from the mainland, so we decided to give SUP lessons a try. The lesson with Robert was a lot of fun and very educational with a lot of great tips that we were able to immediately practice during the lesson. I highly... More
