Throughout the course of two hours, personable instructors spend 15 minutes teaching groups the basics of paddleboard navigation before heading out on the open sea to hit up the best turtle-watching hot spots. Each student will receive a complementary digital image. Alternatively, CPR- and first-aid-certified instructors begin 90-minute surf lessons with 10 to 15 minutes of safety tips on land before students hop on their boards and take to the waters. The instructors then show students the techniques of catching waves and offer more tips throughout the rest of the lesson.<p>
Sea & Board Sports Hawaii
The staff at Sea & Board Sports Hawaii honors its island ancestry by using only Hawaiian-designed boards, which they can customize for those desiring a one-of-a-kind deck pad. Handy board mechanics tend to tarnished planks as sea-faring adventurers browse the store’s voluminous selection of accessories, which ranges from paddles and leashes to athletic-grade peg legs. Proud locals bring their love and knowledge of Oahu’s shorelines to Sea & Board’s lessons, during which students learn balance and paddling techniques as spinner dolphins, sea turtles, and whales lazily drift beneath the ocean’s crystalline waves.
