While in Hawaii (or anywhere else in the world, for that matter...), the PTH Team always recommends spending some time in, on and around the Pacific Ocean. Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) is an amazing ocean activity that combines the Hawaiian art of outrigger canoeing with the sport of riding surfboards. The basic idea is that you will stand on your board and paddle the board (with a modified canoe paddle) in a standing position to move gracefully across the water's surface. SUP can be done on practically any body of water...oceans, lakes, rivers, pools, etc.

SUP is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and stay fit at the same time. The popularity of the sport around the world is showing that SUP is here to stay.
Waikiki has many options for SUP and surfboard rentals/lessons. Just find the Duke Kahanamoku Statue at Kuhio Beach in the middle of Waikiki. There, you will see several beach stands located right on the sand. The local Waikiki Beach Boys will be glad to share this amazing ocean sport with you and your family!
