Stand Up Paddleboarding

The first stand up paddle surfers emerged in Waikiki after the end of World War II, when the post-war tourism boom saw cruise liners bring thousands of tourists to Hawaii. Many wanted to try their hand at surfing. The Hawaiian beach boys were called upon to teach the sport and to photograph it so the tourist had a memento of their surfing exploits. The Ah Choy brothers, Leroy and Bobby would hang a Kodak around there neck and paddled into the break standing on a redwood board. This went on at Waikiki right through the ‘60s and ‘70s.
