Learn how to stand up paddle with a Waikiki Beachboy in the birthplace of surfing! We are located in the heart of Waikiki, just steps away from the water's edge. A one-on-one private lesson is the best way to maximize your time on the water. Children 13 and younger must take a private lesson for safety reasons. Make sure to ask about the photo services (with additional charge) to capture the moment.
Choose your lesson time from 8:30am, 10am, 11:30am, 1:30pm or 3pm. We operate daily all year round. We are located at the beautiful iconic Royal Hawaiian Hotel, AKA: Pink Palace. Our desk is located on the pool deck of the hotel property. You can find the desk by using the public beach access between Cheesecake Factory and Outrigger Waikiki Hotel on Kalakaua Ave.
Most importantly, you must be able to swim and must be over 13 years old to take the lessons. Make sure to check in at least 15 minutes prior to the lesson time. The lesson includes 10 minutes of land instruction. Bathroom is located at the Duke's Waikiki restaurant. Be sure to bring your own towel, sunscreen, and rash guard. If you don't have a rash guard, you may purchase one at our retail store, Waikiki Beachboy, located on the hotel or you can borrow one of ours, based on the availability. Bring your own change of clothes. No shower rooms available. Bring cash or credit card for additional services such as Photo/Video services.
