Paddleboard surfing?

Just returned from a week at Maui and about 90% of the surfers were using standup paddle boards with a paddle. This is in front of the resorts/condos. However, when we drove to more remote spots, nearly all were standard boards, no paddleboarders.
This must be a tourist/beginner thing?

If there are waves, you waves, SUP. Whatever it takes to get in the water :D Most of the resorts are in areas with a lack of good waves. Especially Maui (kaanapali/Lahaina). Hence a lot of SUP. Really took off after locals were SUP’ing between Lahaina and Lanai.

The paddle can also be used as a weapon to secure a spot in the line up! :spingrin:

If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

"Could do better if he tried!" Report card comments from most of my grade school teachers. Sadly, still true!
