Paddleboarding

Here’s a quick video of my first time paddleboarding in Hawaii.

Paddleboarding is kind of a cross between normal surfing, windsurfing, and kayaking. You use a long board that is wide in order to make it easier to balance. Instead of riding waves you stand up on the board and use a long paddle to cruise through the water.

It can be challenging because of the ripples in the water and the small waves in the ocean, but I can assure you that paddleboarding is a lot of fun!

Have you ever gone paddleboarding?

    Awesome post, Mark! Looks like a great day out in Oahu. Have you ever hit any of the other beaches on the North Shore, or even the other Islands? I hear Hanalei on Kauai is absolutely GORGEOUS! Would love to hear what you thought. Keep up the great work and awesome videos!

        My friends have a bunch of stand ups so I actually get to go out pretty often. It’s extra fun if there’s waves too. I just took a trip to seoul and your vid helped a lot! Thanks!

    Looks fun! Ive seen lots of people doing that in.. seems like a hobby that’s catching on.. is it hard to balance, or is it kinda like riding a bike? Can’t wait for summer so I can get out there and try stand up paddleboarding!

      It is a bit tricky to balance, especially when there are waves or wind. But once you get the balance right, it get’s much easier. Hope you can try it out soon!
