Paddle boarding has a Hawaiian heritage and translates in Hawaiian to Ku Hoe He’e Nalu, meaning to stand and paddle to surf a wave. Its history dates back to the 1950’s when the surf instructors on Waikki Beach used to stand up and paddle out to the surf break using regular surf boards and a one bladed paddle.

A pair of old trainers is a must as they will get wet! It’s also a good idea to come in clothes that you don’t mind getting wet (Just in case!) such as a pair of old jogging bottoms. It’s also best to bring a spare change of warm clothes to leave at the centre for once you’ve finished.
