The first time I stood up on a paddle board was when I was two years old with my father. You can imagine what huge love and passion I have for the ocean because I never stopped since then. It brings me joy to teach others how to connect with the water in this meditative yet physically engaging activity. I have been teaching both surf and paddle boarding for over 15 years now.

I have also taken all the measures to keep my students safe over the years.

My friend and I had a great session. Matt was very friendly, conversational and took many photos of us throughout our time. The water was a bit choppy, so he was very accommodating to what we were comfortable doing, but also encouraged us to stand. The location was beautiful, on a beach that wasn’t too crowded and we had a lovely view of the sunset. I highly recommend this experience!

We had an awesome experience paddle boarding with Matt for the first time! He was super patient and friendly. We were able to go out to a quiet/calm area and enjoy the sunset. He even took over 150 pictures for us to remember the experience by! Highly recommend!

I had a great time on my sunset paddle board session with Matt! The meeting location was easy to find, he was easy to talk to and gave a thorough instructions on land before heading to the water. You can tell he lives the "surf life" so he was relaxed in the water and was encouraging. I went on the last day of my trip after a long day so I was a little tired and preferred to have a relaxing float and Matt was perfectly fine with that. :) The location and sunset were incredible! He takes a ton of pictures that make great memories to bring back. Next time I will plan for the beginning of my trip when I have more energy. ;) I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone. Mahalo!

My boyfriend and I had such a fun time paddle boarding with Matt. He took hundreds of pictures of us by the beautiful sunset while coaching us on paddle-boarding. This was a great experience.

Amazing personalized experience! I had no confidence in my ability to Paddleboard but Matt was so incredibly nice and encouraging. He was so patient as I fell after each time I tried to stand up. very knowledgable about the area. He made sure to get amazing pictures too :)

Paddle board near sunset with Matt was a neat experience. Who knew paddle board could be complicated but standing still while on moving water was harder than I thought. Good thing is that Matt was super helpful and friendly. Plus he took some nice photos to remember.
