These people know what they are talking about. Don't go to one of the touristy rental places that's run by seasonal workers-- go to HYPR where you will work with locals who have a wealth of knowledge. I wish I had taken paddleboard lessons when I started years ago instead of trying to teach myself, because I developed a lot... More

I'm a passionate SUP surfer. I own 6 boards on the mainland and will go out anytime there are waves. My base is in southern Maine (Ogunquit) at a river mouth break that works mid tide for SUP surfing. I'm pretty much self taught and I think I'm fairly competent. I have two Hypr boards on the Big Island, an... More

My teenage kids had an amazing experience with HYPR Nalu. They started at the shop, getting their balance on a board set on a bosu ball. Ian really emphasized proper technique and safety. That was so important because when they got out on the water, they were ready to go. We will definitely be back. I highly recommend them.

I walked into hyper paddle boards with a chip on my shoulder thinking I was the best paddle boarder in Michigan after taking a lesson I realized humbly I suck :) . I learned so much in such a short time. This family owned company makes you feel like family. After riding their carbon fiber light weight boards, I let... More

My family and I have been going to Kona for the last 4 years and we have been stopping by HYPRs shop each time we are there. We love that they are experienced and very knowledgeable about what they do, they will not just sell you a board, they will make sure you get the right board for you. The... More

My husband and I had never surfed before. We met Ian downtown Kona (awesome rash guards!) when looking to purchase a rash guard and decided to sign up for a lesson, due to being unable to scuba dive from the high surf. Ian taught us how to get up on the board before going out to the waves and ensured... More

My husband and I took a beginner lesson with Hypr Nalu and were very pleasantly surprised to find how much more we learned in a few hours with Ian (on land) and Isaiah (in the water) than we have learned in other similar beginner lessons in other places. Ian worked with each of us beforehand with a board balanced on... More
