The staff and instructors were extremely friendly and helpful. They had my daughter catching waves on the SUP board within about an hour. Being much older, I was able to catch waves while kneeling, but I wasn't stable enough to stand in the waves. It...More

We took a semi-private SUP lesson, which ended up being entirely private. Ina was a great instructor. He even volunteered to take GoPro footage for us. He taught us how to paddle surf as well, which was super fun. It's easy access to a great...More

We really enjoyed our SUP experience and as a bonus we were able to surf as well. Ina was a great instructor. It was a good workout and learning experience.

It only took forty years to accomplish this goal. Needless to say, I was in better physical shape 40 years ago, but that did not prevent MWR and Kazuma from teaching this old dog a new trick. Thanks for fulfilling a dream for me.

Kekoa gave semi-private lessons to 2 of my kids. We have had lessons from him before, and absolutely loved the experience again! They learned a lot, and had a very fun and safe time. Aloha
