With its roots in ancient Hawaiian surfing, stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) has reemerged as one of the fastest-growing sports in the world. Now, clients staying in northwest Maui can give it a try with Da Kine Stand Up Paddle, the only company offering SUP lessons in peaceful, reef-protected Napili Bay.
“One thing that has made SUP so popular is that it’s easier to learn than surfing,” said Da Kine owner Tom Ockerman. “Our concept of SUP provides for both fun and fitness.”
Da Kine offers general lessons for both beginners and fitness buffs. The company’s two-hour classes are priced from $100-$150 per person. www.dakinesup.net
