Excelling at watersports, like aging gracefully or enjoying dried fruit, requires acceptance of pruney fingers. Outfit yourself for aqua play with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a two-hour standup paddleboard lesson and tour with Hawaiian Surf Adventure (a $99 value). Lessons are held Monday–Saturday, two to three times each day in the morning and afternoon.
Hawaiian Surf Adventure’s expert instructors teach pupils the art of standup paddleboarding in a small-group setting among scenic, uncrowded stretches of water and sand. The six-student standup paddleboard lesson begins onshore, covering oceanic safety and paddleboard technique a safe distance from the bitter jeers of leg-envying merfolk. Instructors and students then gear up with school-provided paddleboards and retire to quiet Maunalua Bay for a tour of the views and a full hour of in-water, hands-on paddleboarding. The high angle afforded by standing eases the effort of propulsion and gives boarders enviably elevated views of sandy sea floors and colorful fish, preventing even the tiniest sliver of ocean-bound beauty from escaping tour-goers' ravenous eyes. Paddlers should come equipped with a bathing suit, beach towel, sunscreen, and water for nonsaliferous sips in between instruction.

Whether paddling surfboards, hanging ten, or navigating a Hawaiian canoe, the team makes adventures easy for beginners and informative for more seasoned watersports enthusiasts.
