Stand up paddle boarding (SUP) is a popular sport that has been around, in one form or another, for decades. Many people like to trace its roots back to Hawaii. And as proud Hawaiians, we have no reason not to agree with them. Each year, there are several stand up paddle boarding events held on Maui. So if you would like to learn how to SUP, we encourage you to take advantage of our Maui vacation deals in the weeks ahead.
Our Maui vacation deals change throughout the year. Sometimes they include deep discounts off of our Ka’anapali Beach resort’s rack room rates. Other times, they include a free night’s stay or special amenities (i.e. premium chocolates). Once you’ve reviewed the Maui vacation deals currently available, you may want to make reservations for May 2014. That’s when the Annual Hoolaulea Festival will be taking place in nearby Lahaina.
Designed to pay homage to the sea, the Annual Hoolaulea Festival includes multiple stand up paddle boarding events. Some of the events, like the Fun Paddle and SUP Recreational Open, are suitable for beginners. They take place in the famed Maliko Bay. The bay is a popular hangout for standup paddler boarders because of its great swells and spectacular views.
There are also businesses in the area that offer private stand up paddle board lessons and equipment rentals year round. So no matter when you choose to stay in our Hawaii condos, you won’t have to be ill-prepared or feel shy about giving stand up paddle boarding a try. A few of the businesses that offer such services in Maui are Hawaiian Paddle Sports and the Nancy Emerson School of Surfing.
