What You'll Get
Watersports have risen in popularity as of late, a trend no doubt influenced by the New York Times’ recent review of water, which was positive. Take an expert’s word for it with this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $44 for a two-hour standup-paddleboarding lesson and turtle tour, or one 90-minute surfing lesson (an $89 value)
- $85 for two two-hour standup-paddleboarding lessons and turtle tours or 90-minute surfing lessons (a $178 value)
- $125 for three two-hour standup-paddleboarding lessons and turtle tours or 90-minute surfing lessons (a $267 value)
For the second and third options, customers can also redeem their Groupons for a combination of both standup-paddleboarding and surfing lessons.
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.

About Sea & Board Sports Hawaii
The staff at Sea & Board Sports Hawaii provides a majestic ride along the Anahulu River, starting with an initial instruction to lock down paddling basics. The experienced instructors bring their love and knowledge of Oahu’s waters to all of Sea & Board’s lessons, during which students get comfortable in kayaks or on stand-up paddle boards. Once fully equipped, participants float free in the calm river water. All the while, sea turtles drift lazily between paddlers and the sandy shorelines.
