Ian and his family run a great shop! For any one interested in SUP or surfing this is a must. The lessons are a true value. They condense years of knowledge into minutes. For those looking to take their ability to the next level these guys can get you there, even if your just starting out. Added pluses are their great location in Kona, surf and flat water, and the off shore views of the island. Plus Ian builds some fantastic boards.

Going to the Big Island and thinking of trying a SUP? Go see Ian and Lauren at HYPR across from the King Kamehameha for the best instruction and equipment anywhere. I had tried a couple of other standups and wasn't impressed but had seen the HYPR boards and decided to give them a try. What more can I say; I bought one! I got great instruction from Lauren and then went out paddling and had an awesome time. Jody wasn't sure about paddleboards but after an introductory lesson from Ian she was out paddling with total confidence and before the day was over she was asking which one we were going to get! You will have a great time - guaranteed!

Ian knows what he is talking about! Listen and learn...I was an experienced paddle boarder but he was able to teach me better technique and made it a great experience! Plus their location is perfect! Got to paddle with the dolphins

Not wanting to leave our 25th year anniversary trip to Hawaii without surfing, I hired Ian and crew to give me a lesson. After a simulator lesson, which went great, we followed Chris - one of Ian's instructors, to the beach next to the little blue church. Let the adventures begin. My wife accompanied us as my papparazzi - complete with Ipad to video my adventure. Chris was not only interesting to talk to but also a good instructor. I got up on the board with no problems and surfed my way to shore the first time. We surfed for about two hours and it was a blast. I also enjoyed hanging out with the local surfers while waiting for the next wave. Interesting conversation and just good fun. My wife was calling me "Moon Doggie" - for any of you who remember the old Gidget series with Sally Fields. Now I cant wait to do it again - only it will have to be in Myrtle Beach since we are Tennessians. For anyone considering a surf adventure, go hang ten with Ian and crew and have a blast. Aloha.....
