SUP clinics will be held from 8 am to 9:45 am only, at the Ewa end of Ala Moana Beach park, close to the shower at the West end of the beach park, please reference the map to the left. Just look for the Blue Planet tent and boards lined up on the beach.

8:05 am – Sign up closes for mandatory safety briefing. You must sign up no later than 8:05 am and attend safety briefing to participate in the free board demo.
8:30-9:45am – Demo all the available boards you want, ask us anything, we will do our best to help you. All our rental boards are available for sale. If you like one, please let our staff know and we can reserve it for you. We can’t sell anything on the beach but we can have it ready for you to pick up at our shop after the clinic.
9:45-10:00am – Time to pack up, all boards need to be out of the water by 10 am at the latest. If you can, please help us wash off and carry boards to the cars. You are welcome to bring your own paddle (and board) to the clinics.
Valid ID required to sign up for demo. Please bring a Demo Pass invitation to the event (available for free on request from any employee at our shop, just ask, no purchase necessary).
The purpose of the clinics is to help our customers choose the right equipment and to teach the basics. SUP is too much fun not to share the stoke and we want to continue offering free clinics, but in order for us to be able to continue to offer these clinics, we depend on making sales as a result.
If you have no intentions of purchasing equipment from our store, please rent a board from us instead or at least consider making a donation to help offset the high cost of equipment and employees. A minimum $5 donation per person is suggested and we will give a free instructional DVD or other gift to anyone donating $10 or more. We will usually make a special offer available to clinic participants that are interested in buying equipment and this offer is usually only good for the day of the clinic.
