We offer many different options for learning how to stand up paddle. Typical lessons begin at the mouth of Hanalei River, where you can stick to the river to explore and enjoy the beauty of Hanalei valley or head out into the bay for some waves. If you decide that you want to learn how to ride waves, then we have many options with surf right near the river mouth and reefs and beach breaks throughout the bay.
