Start off the month of October learning a new sport and getting acquainted with others who share your interest. SUP is easy in flat water conditions so the Wailua River is an ideal place to give it a go. This will be a two hour event from 9-11 AM on Wednesday and will include your individual paddleboard and adjustable paddle from my stock and land instruction as well as on the water tips. Once everyone is comfortable with balance and maneuvering, you'll have the option of exploring one of the tributaries with the group. Bring your camera and I'll be glad to take photos of you in action. Suggested donation for this meetup is $10.
My driveway is on the north guardrail of the Wailua River bridge on the main hiway. If you approach from Kapaa you will see the remains of the Coco Palms Resort on your right. Continue past the stoplight at Kuamoo Rd. Do not turn on Kuamoo but continue on the main hiway. My driveway is the only possible right hand turn you can make before you cross the bridge. Look for a yellow sign picturing a bicycle with the words "Share the Road". My driveway is immediately after that sign and only a few feet away from the bridge. My mailing address is listed on the location details but there are two houses on the property with separate driveways. Just trust your judgement to stay on the hiway right up to the bridge and look for my driveway. It's a white house and just a few feet away from the mouth of the river. If you prefer, you can park at the end of Wailua Road and enter through the state park closest to the bridge or in the Wailua Beach parking lot and simply walk under the bridge on the north side of the river. My house is just in back of where the outrigger canoes are stored.
