What you'll do

We'll begin on the beach at San Souci Beach, where everyone will meet Phoenix, our lead SUPDog! She's a lovely three-year-old Lab who loves people and swimming. We'll do a quick stand-up paddleboard training, covering the basics of paddling: Equipment, Balance, How to Paddle, Conditions, and Safety. Then we'll head out on the water. San Souci beach in Waikiki has glassy smooth water, perfect for entry-level stand up paddling. Phoenix will hop on everyone's board, joining them for photos during their unique and entertaining paddleboarding experience amongst the Pacific. We'll paddle for an hour, and then head back to the beach for a shower, and to share stories. This experience includes a certified Stand-Up Paddle Instructor (PSUPA), ALL necessary equipment, and live-action photos and videos shareable through airdrop or Google drive. All equipment will be delivered to the beach and maintained by the instructor. This experience can be replicated by request for a variety of locations around the island

Tyler is an awesome instructor, the dogs are lively and fun to be around, the water is also calm enough for beginners to practice on and Tyler makes sure that you’re having fun while ensuring your safety. Paddle boarding is already fun in its own but when you’re doing it with dogs and in Hawaii, the experience is 100 times better!

Such an amazing experience! He was so helpful, patient, and encouraging. We introduced ourselves to each other and the dogs and had a super fun and easy to follow safety demonstration. He was so accommodating and helpful with tips and tricks! There were only two of us and it was a perfect day to get on the water so that made it even better! So much fun for sure the highlight of my trip! I’ll be back :)

This was such a fun experience. The dogs were so playful and fun to paddle out with. They liked jumping in the water a lot so you get some time to paddle on your own too. Definitely recommend!!!

As soon as we met Tyler's dogs (phoenix and poke) I knew I was going to have a great time. Tyler didn't disappoint! His dogs are literally the cutest ever and add a whole new element to paddle boarding in beautiful Waikiki. The workout is fantastic and Tyler takes photos throughout the whole time; which we received almost immediately after we were done. Would 100% recommend!
